SUMMARY

Not the usual used and abused W163. This car lived in a very smart suburb of London for almost 19 years, so unlike most ML its NOT as rusty as the Titanic underneath. I also believe this is an Austrian made vehicle, which are said the be better built than their US made counterparts. So much nicer to drive than the diesel variants too, and not that bad on fuel; with the petrol ML it doesnt matter if its an ML320, ML350, ML430 or ML500, they are return around the same MPG, so you may as well have a V8 hauling you along, with the soundtrack to match!



THE MTSV DIFFERENCE

Unlike some, I don't just simply go out, buy any old car, give it a good clean, then advertise it for more than the purchase price, disregarding any issues the car may have in the hope the new buyer won’t notice…I just couldn’t do that. The cars I source are carefully selected and I work very hard so that when my cars leave me, I have the satisfaction of knowing they are as good as they possibly can be within the constraints I have. As such I have many repeat customers and new customers that have been recommended via word of mouth…the ultimate accolade for anyone in business.
