True, Same car over here. a year older..
Circa 6.5K euro
There's actually a bust of them landed on DoneDeal in the last few days, including a LWB 280 or 320, pretty rare in that capacity. Also a rake of C and E class for some reason, perhaps new models coming on stream? Wouldn't touch any of 'em with a barge pole, Mercs of that era are renowned for their quality control issues. And rust. If you want a good old Merc, go older.
Can't go far wrong for only €325, especially if it passed NCT.
But one thing for a potential buyer:
Transferred to an Individual on: 18/05/2012
Notified on: 22/05/2012
Most recent Vehicle Registration Certificate issued on: 24/05/2012
Might be nothing, but it just changed hands, and logbook was issued yesterday, and it's being sold again.
Merc C180, 99, NCT 6/13, just over 100k, Auto, €1000
Saab 93, 00, NCT'd doesn't say for how long, 110k, €700
Fiesta, 96, NCT 4/13, 56K €580
Saab 95, NCT 5/13, tAX 6/12 127k, €1000
A manual Maxima, 150k miles in Wexford but leather, long test and over €200 worth of tax....
Clean looking IS200 in Cork asking €1500, almost a years NCT...
Diesel Mondeo in Cork, asking €1375, 130k miles and almost a years test too, seems too cheap though, got a new clutch and flywheel last year apparently, potentially fishy maybe, dunno....
Looks like the current owner was also told the car would pass the NCT no bother
It's a buyers market. Why would people even consider buying cars without NCT when you can get similarly priced cars with NCT? Plenty of dreamers and fools out there so it seems...
A realistically priced 2001 325i with 12 months NCt...
Don't let Alanstrainor see that!
(his is much nicer though)
That one has been up for sale for ages, fairly sure it was even for sale when Conzy was looking at his one. Wonder why really..
Still think it would be nice with some nicer wheels though.
Don't think so tbh.
If it was for sale earlier in the year it would have had not much NCT left, many folks would be put off by that
When he was looking for one I thought I remembered seeing that one and saying the exact same thing about the wheels.
