    'Write-offs' and insurance.

    My brother has had a cat d car (now cat N) insured fully comp with five different companies over 10 years. At no time has he ever been turned down , questioned or had his premium raised as a result. Certainly on Cat D/N it is not an issue. Cat C/S maybe harder.

    'Write-offs' and insurance.

    S used to be cat C and N used to be cat D in case you are looking at an older write off

    2022 Mercedes CLS/CLS53 Facelift

    Understated and stylish .....rather like the original 219 with a few modern day updates

    'Write-offs' and insurance.

    There are different levels of "write off" I know there is not an issue with cat d/n but it may be different with catc/s and above. but yes it will almost certainly affeffect the payout in the event of total loss as the car is worth less on the market.

    w204 internal door handle broken

    Cant speak for the 204 but the passenger door handle (chrome part ) on my CLS w219 was damaged and I sourced a new oem one on ebay and my indie fitted it gor about half hours labour as i recall.

    Newbie, CLS 55 owner

    Welcome. Patience is a virtue when looking for one of these. Took me 2 and a half years to find mine (mostly because i wanted a colour). Great cars. Owned now for over 4 years and 50k miles. Still love the combination of extreme comfort and extreme grin. Enjoy

    It does work I used it with mine about a year ago and still solid and bone dry (always left outside)

    CLS55 AMG type 111 front wheel.

    At least half of mine have now been welded. A good welder can do a totally satisfactory job. A good wheel refurbisher (TWS) will have a welder they trust to do a good job.

    CLS55 AMG type 111 front wheel.

    I did the same and picked up a complete spare set on ebay and use them/refurb them in rotation. These wheels crack on the inner rims if you just look at them so its always worth having a spare to swap ove should it happen. Theres usually a few on ebay both the occasional sets and individual.

    CLS 63 - Red

    Stunning but a bit too bright on a CLS for me. Now if it was more of a deep metalic burgundy (like RR Regal red) I might be on the phone.

    A bit less on modifications and a bit more on servicing would probably have been beneficial

    CLS350 Shooting Brake wheels

    Aparently there is one in Fareham, Farnborogh and Bournemouth if that helps. They powder coat if i remember correctly.
