Welcome to the forum, c_j!

So... have you driven the Merc yet?

Not yet....I have purchased it from a very trusted source tho.

The story is: lady buys brand new merc c220 turbo diesel 2.2 w202, puts 100,000 miles on it, services it on time, every time, at mercedes- full history ect ect.

Passes it down to her 30 odd year old son, he puts 20,000 miles on it, services it the same as his mother.

He MOT it last friday- drives home, anf one of the hoses expired while driving.

Its currently on his driveway- I need to find the correct hose for it- as he didnt have time to fix it.

Good bodywork, standard patch of rust on the lower passanger front door- needs 4 new tires in my opinion...

Just had fuel injectors replaced(or whatever the equivalent is for this car)

Cant wait to actually drive it!!!

Got it at a bargain- which was niiiiice.

Theres some good topics here too, I have noticed!!

Im not new to forums- just havent used them in a long time- as I believe that wastebook has killed the forums- which is sad.

Thank you all for the warm welcomes :)

Potentially quite a nice deal.  Perhaps have a close look at the other hoses when you get it home, though - they'll be just as old as the one that expired.

Most hoses come from Spain or Mexico....

Geezer at work has a Coupe 220, and he had a leaky hose only last week.  It was near the EGR.

Once fixed, he back up to 50 mpg, so he's happy again.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

When I finally get it home, and get working on it- closer inspection will be issued.

I plan to bring it back to its full glory- inside and out.

I like to look after all my cars :)

This one is coming directly from Mercedes in germany- not sure where they are made tho.

I have a weak spot for coupe's.... likely to give me the car horn on a regular occasion!
