I'm surprised you regretted selling your mercedes even though it had a head gasket failure. That is a serious problem.

Its true a blown Head Gasket is serious, however, I had to take some of the blame as previously I had allowed the coolant level to drop and drove the car home as it overheated, the Head Gasket blew a few days later! so I hang my head in shame on that one, it was dark, raining, I was in the middle of nowhere, and frankly could not be arsed to stop.
Still a cracking car tho, and highly recommended, just keep your eye on the coolant level!
