I got to finally drive the 190 16V yesterday and the car is exactly as you described. For the benefit of other readers, I purchased the car
sight unseen, based on pictures and description from Richard, having described to Richard what I was looking for. The whole experience was a pleasure and the updates from Richard always timely as the car had to be shipped back to Ireland.
It represents a much more personal approach to buying than cold calling people who tend to oversell their cars......
Again Richard, many thanks

After leaving my job, and company car I decided that I would not join the rat race and buy a new car only to lose money. So after introduction to Mercseller by a friend that has had a long and trusted relationship with a fine W124, I set off on an odyssey of searching for the perfect car. After some handy hints from Richard I settled on a W124 E 260 1988 ? All I can say after a month is that I have bought a great design and made great contacts through this website and I look forward to buying and selling again soon. Also this month £450 did not leave my account for a car that would of been a rather sad and not well made marketing exercise of a car ? I now have the real thing!!

Having bought my K reg Mercedes 190D from Richard I have never looked back. This car is the drive of my life and I feel like I belong behind the wheel. The buying process itself was a rare pleasure - of the old fashioned kind. Never before has so much care and attention been taken to discuss the merits (and rare pitfalls) of owning a Mercedes. I felt like I was part of a national club where the members trade and share useful information. The car has been superb and Richard made sure to put me in touch with all the right people for future servicing, this kind of sale IS the way forward, my next car will surely be bought through Mercseller.com
P.s. Richard - how do I get the 'anti-theft' tax disc holder off - I have a new tax disc??

It's been awhile, but thanks for sorting out the 300CE deal with Danny, quickly and efficiently - as you know I was stuck at Xmas and needed a car quick to ferry my daughter around.
The car itself is fine - a couple of minor quibbles but I'm sure Danny will sort them out when he does the free MOT for me, as agreed.
Anyhow, hope you are doing well.

Richard and Ian handled the sale of my W124 E320 Cabriolet recently.
It has just been bought by someone in Jersey who has never even seen the car! I'm sure he will enjoy and appreciate this lovely car.
To me, this goes to show what good deals can be struck to everyone's satisfaction when there is a genuine, honest seller, a genuine, honest buyer and a genuine, honest and well-informed agent in the middle (i.e. Mercseller).
The usual difficulty is working out who is genuine and honest! Richard and Ian have not only the general knowledge of the Mercedes range, but take the time to get to know the individual vehicles that they are handling such that they are able to 'sell' and 'source' the right car for the right person. They also smoothed the way for the payment and transportation of the car, again to everyone's satisfaction. An amazing job well done and thank you.
Like it says, an amazing job. Thank you both.
Comment By Ian Dickinson...Thank you Patrick for your very positive words. It was a pleasure dealing with both yourself and Rob in Jersey and it made the whole transaction run as smoothly as possible. I have no doubt Rob will be absolutely delighted when he finally gets to see the car. We, as a company, endeavour to make the buying and selling process as easy and as painless as possible but we do, at times, have to rely on the honesty & integrity of those involved in the transaction. Thank you for your comments Patrick. They really are appreciated. P.S. I hope you do not miss your E320 too much when the sun is out. Best Regards, Ian

Having been looking for a 320e for about a year, I came across MERCSELLER. What a discovery, Richard was able to narrow down exactly want I wanted and having seen other cars, I dispatched to Chesterfield to view a 300ce. One could tell at first sight that this was as near perfect model for a 1990. It has been cherished with a full MBSH. The description given by Richard was bang on. Bought the car and didn't even haggle at the price! A regal drive home to Manchester and its a delight!! Thanks to Richard and his colleague Ian. I'll keep you informed on my enjoyment.

Welcome to the Mercnuts club Luis. There's nothing quite like Richard and Ian's knowledge when it comes to finding the best classic and modern classic MB's. I'm a big fan of the 124 series, a 500e is my daily driver and I live close to you, being in Nantwich. Do come along to the Mercnuts meeting at The Grove in May. All the best with the new toy. Adam
