The C43 was Mercedes-Benz' junior super-saloon, a small-yet-mighty stealth offering punching performance-wise way above that its size might have suggested. This example has been owned by the vendor for the last 11 years (during which 17,500 miles have been covered) and comes to market with very good metallic silver paint and bodywork, the latter showing good panel fit and the bumpers seemingly devoid of scratches and knocks. The two-tone (black and leather) interior is said to be very good and displays no signs of neglect or passenger carelessness, the door cards and dashboard being equally good. Our vendor reports the engine being very good for starting and running but the engine bay leaves scope for light cosmetics. Running gear is said to be excellent. History is described as good, the car being serviced by Mercedes-Benz to 121,000 miles and by independent workshops since then.

This compact super-saloon comes with a good service history and has had new Michelin tyres as well as new discs and pads within the last 3000 miles.
