Under-seat storage compartments for first aid kits. Seats in perfect order, no rips or tears. Always covered with protectors. Additional storage compartments in doors.

  3. I've got my eye on a 1988 Mercedes 811D it's looks to be in very good condition, I've checked its MOT history and apart from one year where it wanted a few bits and bobs doing it's passed with no advisories. It's a 4 litre, Gross weight 7.5 ton. It's been to the moon and back milage wise, is this something to worry about considering these vehicles were used a lot as executive coaches that seemed to go on forever? It's a 6-7 hour drive to go and look at it, which I don't mind, but would like some prior knowledge of what I should be looking out for. I've trawled the web with not a great deal of success. Anyone got one or had one? Any advice would greatly appreciated.
