Just driven a w638 CDI 112.....
Hi all, I have just driven a CDI 112 03 plate, 80K miles and manual. And no, rust hasn't killed it yet.
Two things struck me - the gear change and the brakes.
Gear change was bloody stiff, a quick Google and this seems quite common. If it's new cables is it a DIY job ? Found some for about 50 quid each so don't seem too expensive.
Brakes felt bloody awful, hard pedal, very little feel, is this normal ?
The engine felt/sounded good, a lot quieter than my 56 plate Mondeo !
No smoke when I accelerated hard.
Seemed to drive quite well for an old bus so might be interested in it.
I think I'm right in saying they are chain driven and maintenance free ?
Anything else I should be looking for ?
