It appears if you tell the truth and put motor trade on your personal insurance then vaseline would be advisable...

That photo highlights an important exception to a rule.

Grass adds to the value of a car, EXCEPT where such grass is the recreation area on a council estate.

What's the general opinion of these? I rather like this, and miss my old V8 and auto 'box.
I have a real soft spot for the W202 AMG's, very understated and a rare sight nowadays. There is not a great deal of info about them on the net compared to M3's and Audi's S models from the same era. The only weakspots i have heard is obviously the crusty arches and sills and the gearbox but i think some upgrade to the W210 E55 'box. Your best bet is to seek out a buyers guide, ideally from a Mercedes Enthusiast magazine and speak to a couple of specialist. Like i mentioned, i would be tempted due to the exclusivity and the 90's ness about them, which i really do like.

There's a handful of C55s of that generation out there, for some reason I want one more than I've ever wanted an E36 M3 - and I tend to bleed Bavarian Blue and white in most situations.

Is that why whenever we get a new volume the biggrin keeps getting dropped from the thread title?

I would love a W202 C55 Wagon but crikey they are rare. I would say i was more of a munich fan but in recent years have took a big interest into the dark side.

I've always rather liked them too. Not a brilliant advert but I've pinged him an email anyway, he mentions a WRX as p/x, and a Legacy GTB isn't a million miles away...
