2000 Mercedes Benz E240 Avantgarde Auto, 2597 cc. Registration number X983 YNN. Chassis number WDB2102622B211158. Engine number 11291430812386. The W210 was manufactured in both saloon (1995-2002) and estate (1995-2003) form. The W210 was the first Mercedes-Benz production car featuring Xenon headlamps. For model year 2000, a multi-function information system was incorporated into the instrument cluster below the speedometer, and the introduction of steering wheel controls for the audio/navigation/phone system. In addition, the 5-speed automatic transmission introduced +/- gate positions for semi-manual control of the gearbox, marketed as "Touch Shift." Exterior changes included a revised front with a steeper rake, similar to the CLK, and restyled bumpers and lower body trim. Estate cars had Citroen-like self-leveling rear suspension with suspension struts rather than shock absorbers, gas-filled suspension spheres to provide damping and an under bonnet pressurizing pump. Unlike the traditional Citroën application Mercedes opted for a fixed ride height and employed rear coil springs to maintain the static ride height when parked. YNN was in long term ownership with John Gartside of Huddersfield from at least 2004 until 2014 with two stamps in the service book at 12,920 and 27,379 miles, the regular MOT history confirms the mileage. Our vendor bought YNN in 2014 when the mileage was some 53,000, it has mainly been on SORN since and the current mileage is only 55,685. Sold with the V5C, new MOT from 17/10/20 and service booklets.
