Mercedes CLK230 "Kompressor" 1998 - With only 58500 miles on the clock and a full service history, this 2 previous owner Mercedes CLK230 "Elegance Kompressor" is in unusually good condition and should not be confused with the standard fare on offer today.
Its common knowledge that from 1999 onwards, Mercedes reduced the quality and depth of their paintwork and so the bodyworks ability to stand up to corrosion was likewise reduced. Being an 1998, this cars condition bears testament to this with little or no rust to talk of, just the smallest bubbles under the paint at the base of the front wheel arches commensurate with any nigh on 20 year old car that has not had any paintwork.
Interior is very nice with no damage to the seats etc. Unusual in the pale blue/grey cloth, this complements the silver exterior and gives a light and airy feel when seated inside. Being the "Elegance" it comes with all the usual options, air con (untested, blows cold but it was minus one outside when tested so it would do!), electric windows, remote folding rear head rests, remote central locking, electric mirrors, remote boot release, ABS, Traction control etc etc and has a nice older but quality stereo head unit. All of which appear to work.
The "Super-charged" version of Mercedes 2.3 litre engine is a little gem, very smooth and economical when wanted in town etc but with instant "oomph" when required, especially with the automatic gear box switched to semi-auto it really does give good performance, cruising with ease at motorway speeds (or Autobahn speeds if in Germany). All aspects of this car are given as very good with recently fitted new rear Michelins tyres matching the fronts and a new Mercedes battery. Currently MOTd till April there will be a new MOT carried out prior to the Auction.
Only now on sale due to loss of licence for medical reasons, this lovely Mercedes coupe just has to be brilliant value at the reserve price that has been set.
