Vehicle History

Remarks

Full MB service history to date. The car has only ever been serviced by MB and I have all the original services receipts as well as others for recall and warranty work etc. I have all the original MOTs except two and old tax discs.

It still wears its original number plates from Mercedes Chelsea. When I bought the car I made a trip to the showroom to ask if they still have Mercedes key rings with the Chelsea dealership stamped on the back and they did, so I bought two - one for each of the two keys. The car comes will all its original booklets including the service book. All the booklets are in pristine condition are in a brand new Mercedes leather pouch that I bought when I acquired the car. The original signed purchase order is included in the paperwork
