Thanks Avel, I checked that before paying deposit and HPi all clear. I’m hoping its been owned by a forum member as certainly it’s been cherished and it has some of the aftermarket options discussed on the forum.
thx for your help though mate, appreciated.

One point of interest for you.

16 spoke alloys no longer available from MB.
You can refurb the originals, but not replace.

You have to get second hand and refurb them.

Not all of them Jeff, not yet anyway!
thx for the tips, I’ll get there when the 55 arrives next week.
sorry for noob question in the meantime!

well one of the tips is your free datacard of options...you want that ahead of time, not later

Search for the Vin online here. Many members have asked for a free data card and their Vin will be available if you search for it.

And I finally got underneath today to see what kind of exhaust mod created the beautiful noise. Looks like a x pipe to me, and a pretty good job so the mechanic said.
Also checked the rear subframe for corrosion and it’s pretty solid for a 2006 😀

I paid for a basic mechanical health check, plus plug into Star machine, to get a clean bill of health otherwise.

Both front control arms being done next week. One has a slight leak and may as well replace and get both in balance. The Indy recommended ‘lemforder‘ or something like that.... They suggest they are the best quality.

comments and advice gratefully received, before it goes under the knife...
