The car was registered in Germany on 30/09/1988, and subsequently registered in Spain on 23/02/1990 with less than 30,000 km, as verifiable with the original service booklet. So the car has spent virtually all its life in Madrid, Spain.

In 1996, the official Mercedes dealership in Madrid ‘Itarsa’ bought it. Its last owner, who has maintained it carefully until now. The used car guarantee card from that date, when the car had 76,000 km, has been preserved.

The service booklet is stamped by an official Mercedes-Benz dealership up to 150,000 km, and afterwards it has been taken to a workshop specialising in Mercedes-Benz and BMW, of which all invoices have been preserved.

Also, all the vehicle inspection reports are present, so the current 226,000 km odometer reading is perfectly verifiable.

Mechanically, everything works perfectly and recently the car had the injection adjusted at an official Mercedes-Benz dealership, including a new Mercedes-Benz battery, oil and filters and new radiator and coolant. All invoices will be provided.
