All vehicles listed here are in various stages of preparation. As always, my aim is to I get my cars as good as I possibly can within the constraints I have, so its not unusual for some of my vehicles to spend a few months or longer in preparation, until I'm 100% happy they're ready to go. Incidentally, preparation goes far deeper than just a wash and polish. For me its much more involved than that, and a process that will hopefully ensure continued trouble free ownership.
1990 Mercedes W124 300TE Auto (5-Seat) Estate - 702 Smoke Silver - Grey Quartz Cloth - 79K Miles
1993 Mercedes W201 190E Auto (LHD) - 744 Brilliant Silver - Mushroom Sportline Cloth - 22K miles
2004 Ssangyong Rexton 270 SE Auto (MB Engine/Gearbox) 4x4 - Black - Black Leather - 82K
1991 Mercedes W201 190E 2.6 Sportline Auto - Almandine Red - Mushroom Leather - 79K - FSH - AC - Cruise
Finished in 366 Azurite Blue with Cream leather. Supplied new by Drake & Fletcher, Maidstone, this stunning W140 has covered just 65K miles, and comes with the most amzaing service history, which starts with the original bill of sale for £65,768.57 (in 1995!). Very high specification includes climate control with AC, electric memory seats, double glazing, soft close doors and boot, electric rear blind, electric sunroof, electric folding mirrors etc the list is endless. It's said the W140 is probably the most thouroughly engineered car of all time, and this car is certainly testament to that.
1988 Mercedes S124 200T Estate Auto (7-Seater)
1 Owner - 64K Miles- FSH
A rare low mileage W124 Estate, and essentially a one owner car. Finished in 147 Arctic White with Oxblood Cloth Interior, I absolutely love driving this car as its just simple "belt and braces", ultra reliable, German engineering. I was also pleasantly surprised by it's performance too; it's certainly no slouch and is considerably more lively than the Diesels, yet it still returns respectable fuel economy. It also comes from the pinnacle build years at Mercedes, (88-92) so is in excellent condition, both on top and underneath; these late 80's W124 are built to a very high standard indeed.
2004 BMW E83 X3 3.0i Sport Auto (4x4)
Last Owner 13 Years- FSH - Beautiful Example
Finished in gleaming Sapphire Black with Black Leather, a beautiful example in exceptional condition, and that's had just two previous owners the last a "more mature" lady for 13 years, who looked after it properly, running it through her Estate Agency business. At 146K miles, it's slightly higher miles than I'd normally consider, but it's more about condition here and this is a very well maintained vehicle, in superb condition, and the legendary BMW M54 inline six is a well proven unit capable of covering very high mileage with ease. It's great fun to drive, being both very quick and very sure footed thanks to BMW's X-Drive four wheel drive system. Being registered pre 2005 it benefits from cheaper road tax too.
2000 Mercedes W210 E430 (V8) Elegance Auto
40,990 Miles - FMBSH - Very High Spec
A simply incredible vehicle, in amazing condition and a real Q-Car too. Costing in excess of £50K when new, this car was bought as part of a five new car collection from Lancaster Mercedes in Sheffield. This isn’t just any old Mercedes W210, but a high spec V8 powered E430, which is nearly as quick as the E55 AMG, and shares many of its mechanical components too, but presents itself in a more dignified manor! Just 40,990 miles, backed up by a full Mercedes history. Spec includes full leather, electric memory front seats, heated & cooled front seats, cruise control with speed limiter, comand Sat Nav, the list goes on!

1997 Mercedes S202 C250 Turbo Diesel Eleg Auto (5) Estate
1 Owner - 54K Miles- Almost Like New
In Imperial Red with Mushroom Leather, this is a very rare low mileage W202 Estate, in almost as new condition both on top and underneath, it's really quite incredible. Owned by just one gentleman, and only used for trips to the continent and garaged when not in use, and always Serviced on the dot, using only Mobil One oil. Unusual specification features cruise control, air conditioning , leather BUT no radio, steel wheels and badge delete option, this is exactly how it came from the factory, and how the owner wanted it. Powerful, yet economical turbo diesel, with 5 speed automatic transmission makes this car an effortless cruiser. This really is a very special vehicle, I doubt there's another quite as good.
