Hey guys!

New to this forum and Mercedes full stop actually.

Got my first one at the weekend, practically a banger by most accounts, but I think saveable to give me a practical and comfy big cruiser.

It is a 2000 C Class (W202?) with a 2.2 turbodiesel engine. 220 CDi? I am so new to Mercedes I am having trouble just identifying it lol

Cost me £50 - yes just £50 - and has a full tank of diesel so I guess I paid half price for a full tank of fuel, and got a free merc thrown in lol.

She is a bit rough tho, loads of surface rust scabs but nothing that looks too serious.

MOT to Sept, Tax to July.

Both headlamp glasses are broken, I am struggling to find those for a reasonable price, needs two new rear tyres and is very clunky underneath; it got a couple of advisories for "play in lower suspension balljoints" at last MOT.

The main issue, was the owner had spent a load on tyring to fix problems in the head. It had fired out no4 injector, and the remachining etc to fix that cost a bit - and then it was leaking diesel... he just wanted shot of... but I think I may have sorted it already with some good old fashioned tinkering

I am at a loss where to find cheap parts etc, I don't even know where to start looking - have always been a Ford guy until now - a lot of reading required methinks so any tips or pointers would be greatly appreciated!!
