Must be new

No idea why experienced people “in the know” put mileage on the ad, it just confuses those who don’t understand.

Good morning guys, I saw this car on fb in December and then they reposted it again yesterday. I spoke to to Johann (who is selling on behalf) to get a bit more info.
Does anyone know this car? Was going to try and see it at some point. I’m quite new here and haven’t owned a G yet so any info or input would be appreciated. Cheers

The only comment I will make is about the 6spd manual. that is not a G gearbox. Apparently the 6speeds work well in the G's but it will not have the low ratios of a G-gearbox. just so you know.

I have a six-speed ex an C220 CDI in my 290. In fact it has a very low 1st gear ratio, lower than the original. 5,014:1 compared to the 4,7:1 on the original. Unfortunately the 6th has a slightly lower ratio than the original 5th. It is still a bargain because you have a wider spread between 1st an 6th than on the original 5speed. One can fit larger diameter tyres as a compromise.
