The Dad Tank - Merc E Class

So today I picked up a replacement for my Dad Wagon Saab 9-3.

I wanted a bit of daily Merc driving, I love the feel of my CLS but it's not practical driving a 6.2 V8 day to day, plus I don't want to whack the mileage onto it.

So here is my 2003 Mercedes E 320cdi. It has a 3.2ltr diesel and makes about 200bhp and about 360lbs-ft of torque so it properly shifts. It's done 102k but inside and out you'd never know it. Feels extremely defined and dare I say the engine actually sounds quite good when you give it some throttle...





Next to it's tougher, quicker but a hell of a lot thirstier brother...



Interior is extremely nice and has been kept well. This is as it was when I picked it up but I have given the plastics a clean and shampooed the fabrics this evening. Will vacuum it thoroughly tomorrow.





The car wears it's mileage incredibly well but is an honest car with a few stone chips (touched in by the previous owner), less than average mileage but everything maintained well and looks well cared for in general.

Next up will be giving the outside a thorough wash, to get some new plates on and get those headlights polished up!
