Hi ebayers
 
Delighted
to offer for sale
This very
special one-off
German
Gem!
 
This is my
own personally owned
29 Year
old Classic
 
LEFT HAND
Drive Continental
MERCEDES
190D (W201 Model)
 
First Registered
September 1992 in France
The car
has had only 2 main keepers
First family
from new in 1992
The latest
owner bought the car in 1997
With 80K
(Kms) on the clock
 
Since 1997
the car has been well looked after
By said
keeper wanting for nothing and regularly
Checked
and maintained mainly by their
Local Mercedes
Dealer in France
 
Sadly the
lady was widowed in 2019
And
returned to UK with plans to return to France
When
restrictions permit but in the meantime
Bought
another car so the Mercedes came into
My
ownership and both it and myself have been on
Quite a journey.
 
It has
covered 360,000 Kms (around 225,000 miles)
And I’m
proud to say it drives like an 80,000 mile car!
 
It is so
lovely to drive in every way.
Starts
right on the turn of the key
Even in
the recent freezing weather
And drives
absolutely spot on.
 
Powered by
a 1997cc naturally aspirated
Diesel
engine attached to a
4 Speed
AUTOMATIC Gearbox
The car is
just like the old Mercedes Taxis
I used to travel
in years ago.
 
The car
came to me in November
With an
MoT on it til 20th September 2021
Which was
done while still on French Reg Plates
 
First
thing I did was to import the car
Into UK
and Register with DVLA
And Tax
the car which is now all done
With the
car being designated a K Reg Plate
 
I have the
UK V5 Log Book
Which is
in my name
And the
car is currently Taxed
Which
sadly can’t be carried over
But it is
now a UK status Car.
 
The car
while good and solid
And a
superb driver needed a few
Jobs doing
to provide it with a bit
Of up to
date TLC so here is the list
Of things
I’ve done on the car:
 
An old
alarm system which caused the
Car to cut
out occasionally has been completely
Removed
along with all its wiring
And
control modules.
 
Central Locking
repaired with part of a
leaking
air pipe replaced
 
Boot seal
replaced
 
All seats
and carpets and boot linings
Removed
and the car checked for corrosion
And found
to be solid and in unbelievable condition
 
Front
Grill removed, dismantled, cleaned up
And the
egg crate prepped and resprayed
In a gun
metal grey and re-fitted
 
New no
plates and surrounds fitted
 
On the
mechanical side:
 
Brand New
Heater Fan installed
And Heater
Resistor also replaced
With known
serviceable used part.
 
And the
front scuttle panels
And rubber
seals all replaced as the old
Ones were
perished and main panel cracked.While these were all off the car I cleaned up all the areas
checking for corrosion especially the battery tray which also came out
and all the drains were unblocked and flushed through
so no more rain water gathering and steaming up inside.Radio cables
repaired by removing old DIY
Terminal
block and re-connecting to ISO Cables
 
JVC Face
off Radio/CD player installed
And all
working correctly.
 
Original
electric aerial also re-commissioned
With
broken wire replaced and wired
Into the
ISO Cable – now working.
 
Ashtray
repaired and bulb renewed and
Refitted
back into the car
Cigar
lighter wired back up
So can use
the socket for Sat Nav/phone etc
 
Headlights
were replaced with a UK Set
And
checked and levelled and yellow
Fog Light
lenses fitted.
 
The foreign
ones left in the car
In case it
goes abroad again.
 
Thermostat
replaced with brand new item
And old
housing which was cracked and
Badly
corroded replaced with good used item
And
sprayed up in car’s colour
 
New old
stock Coolant Temperature Sensor
Fitted and
housing removed, cleaned up
And
sprayed and re-fitted with new Gasket.
 
Cooling
system including matrix all
Flushed
out both ways under pressure water
And new
coolant and antifreeze at 50/50 added
 
Serpentine
Drive belt replaced with New one
 
Spring
loaded Belt tensioner replaced
with good
used item
 
Anti
vibration damper checked,
cleaned
and re-fitted
 
Brand New
Alternator fitted
 
New flexi
wiper blade fitted
 
Underneath
– A new plastic bush fitted to the
Lower arm
of the auto selector as the old one
Had worn
away and selector was vibrating
When
driving along at certain speeds.
 
The auto selector
top half removed and
Backlight
bulb replaced and selector
Cleaned up
and greased and re-assembled
 
Wheels all
cleaned up and replacement
Mercedes
OEM Wheel Trims
(Pt No
[hidden information]) fitted.
 
For the
MoT last September
2 New
Tyres were fitted on the front
 
Oil and
filter renewed following
Engine
flush with new oil and Wynns cleaner
And new
5W40 Oil & Filter
 
All seats
removed from the car
And
cleaned up and scrubbed
Then vaxed
to remove all the grime.
 
Seat rails
and adjustments lubed up
And freed
off so can be moved.
They are
still a bit stiff but can be moved
And
adjusted as required.
 
Carpets
all hovered, scrubbed and vaxed
While
seats were out.
 
In all
this work the thing that has struck me
Is how
lovely and simple the car is to work on
Everything
is accessible and if you were a
Taxi
driver and something minor broke
You could
almost stop on the side of the road
And fix it
with a few basic tools.
 
The car
drives very well on all roads with
Very good
acceleration,
And nice
smooth 4 speed AUTO gearbox
Which has lovely
clear light red ATF
 
The
gearbox works very well in all modes
and
kickdown all working fine. Reverse selects fine
And
engages straight away and very smoothly
 
When
selecting a gear there is no delay
And no
jolting or uneven changes
It just
runs really smooth.
 
Under
normal driving the car pulls away
In second
and holds on longer before
Going into
3rd but if you pull away quickly
From a junction
it will start in 1st and
Run
through all the gears until
You end up
in 4th gear.
 
There are
no warning lights on the instrument
Cluster
after start and the car does have ABS
 
Engine is
spot on with no uneven running
Or warning
lights etc and idle speed is
Around 800
rpm but there is no rev counter
So that is
a by ear guess!
 
Drives
quiet and smooth no bad rattles
Or
vibrations and no uneven running
Or
hesitation.
 
While this
car won’t win the
traffic
light grand prix it is a firm steady
safe
plodder which I think will outlive
a lot of
modern cars
and will
hardly cost you anything to run.
 
The engine
is the 1997cc
4 Cylinder
DIESEL engine
Kicking
out an adequate 71bhp
With an
average fuel consumption of
39mpg and
having just filled the tank
To the
brim and zeroed the trip meter
I’m hoping
to get a more accurate figure soon
 
Emissions don’t
apply as the car is too old
For the
emission groups so it has a BET test
Which it
passed no problem.
 
The
interior is of a good standard & good condition
And a very
nice place to be.
The seats
are very comfortable with
Dark
grey/blue cloth seats
Which are
showing their age
With a
small wear hole in the drivers seat bolster
But seat
is still solid and firm
And not
all loose or damaged.
 
The rear
seat is also in good condition
But also
age worn but not damaged
And all 3
seatbelts working okay.
 
Centre
console and facias and dash all good
Save a few
age related marks but no damage.
Dashboard
is in good condition and not cracked.
 
Headlining
is all good and secure
And no
sagging or tears or fraying.
 
There is
no sunroof on the car.
 
The heater
is also very warm and is
operated
off the control panel on the centre facia.
works spot
on using the normal switch on the control panel
and gets
nice and toastie now since flushed
 
Instrument
panel is working fine
with all
dials working
and no
incorrect readings as stated,
There is
no digital display
So all
readings are clear and easy to see
 
Backlights
are all okay and dimmer works okay.
 
The rear
screen demister is working
And clears
the screen very quickly.
 
Door
mirrors adjust electronically
On the
right side and left one by the driver
Is
adjusted manually.
 
Windows
are electric front with
And manual
rears and all okay.
 
Bodywork
is very good for age and mileage
Good clean
condition all over
with some
chips and marks, most notably
a scratch
on top section of drivers door,
a fairly
big dink on the boot lid left side
and dink
on the rear right wing which
has been
rust treated and touched in.
Bonnet is
shiny but the paint underneath
Is marked
where it looks like something
Got
spilled and reacted before lacquer
Was
applied to the bonnet.
 
Bonnet and
front bumper all clean and tidy
Save a
couple of feint minor scuffs
Which
didn’t damage ant paintwork
 
All in all
a very nice shiny car
With good
paintwork and
Tidy
undamaged trim but with
Some signs
of age and wear and tear.
 
The car
has had paintwork in its life
Which you
can see in the photos.
 
Wheels
are a set of steel 15 inch
In good used
condition but
with some
brake dust stains
And light
kerb scrapes
but not
severe, actually a nice set of wheels.
 
Tyres are
all 185/65/15s
Not all
same make but two pairs
They are
legal with 6-7mm tread
And all
holding their air.
 
Brakes are
good - stopping the car efficiently
With no
squeaking or juddering or pulling to one side
And no
vibration or uneven breaking.
No judder
even in heavy braking.
Very
smooth braking.
 
Inside the
boot is all as it should be
with spare
wheel, jack & wheel brace & tool kit
all
present and correct.
 
There is a
single elctrics towbar fitted
Which I
can see is wired in
but not
tested by me.
The
electrical connector opens up okay
And all
the pins look okay.
 
There is 1
Key and 1 Key for the
Central
Locking which is in full working order
 
So there
you have it
One very special
amazing adorable
Classic
90s old Mercedes 190D
In very
good order throughout
And
exceptional given its age and mileage
And a mass
of paperwork history comes
With the
car as well including vehicle history
From
France and records of most of the items
Purchased
recently to complete servicing
And
repairs.
 
Very well
maintained and well used
But not
abused and has worn the years very well.
Very easy
to drive with smooth AUTO Gearbox
looking
great with its polished up paint
and contemporary
interior
15 inch wheels
& good tyres,
Lovely
classic Merc Wheel Trims
MoT and
Ready To Go.
