    Next car: C Class coupe with young family?

    I’ve had a C-class coupe for 11 years and kids for 10 so I thought a lot about this when I bought my new one last year. I'd totally agree that if you've got young kids then it only really works if you have a bigger family car along side. Taking cases to the airport etc impossible in the coupe...

    Yeah it's got all the radar bits in it and the dealer told me if you crack it, it's 5 grand to fix [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Questions for the dealer

    Update: Thanks for the advice above, picked up the car a few days ago but sods law came down with a bug just after (not blaming the car!) so it frustratingly sits on the drive. Will post some pics and thoughts next week once I actually get to drive the thing. However, observations from the...

    Questions for the dealer

    It's now only two unbearable days until I pick up my brand new mercedes from the dealer. Given I last bought a car 12 years ago I am most definitely a little behind the new fangled times. Apologies if this is elsewhere (I couldn't find) but I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on...

    Edd China to leave Wheeler Dealers

    Wow, the comments section at the bottom of that page is fairly conclusive on the public's favourite ! While I too only really watched it for Ed's bits I met Mike once at some Land Rover thing and he was hugely pleasant. I wondered at the time whether his on screen persona was put on...

    Electric Garage Doors

    Another vote for horman section doors here too. Had ours to replace a traditional up and over door few years ago and never looked back. We have the 4 horizontal section white woodgrain (sorry can't post a pic but on the horman site anyway) and its very robust and looks great Sent from my...

    All there made out to be?

    Funnily enough I had a w203 coupe for 11 years too. Only just sold it and it was a tough decision as it had been bullet proof all that time. Only thing that was the DVD player for comand had started playing up every now and again but mechanically the thing was perfect. So I second the idea that...

    Edd China to leave Wheeler Dealers

    Ed taught me to always label my wires... Honestly that has saved my backside so many times. I used to just fast forward past mikes bits. Guess I'm not the target audience for the revamp. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello from soon to be C43 owner

    Hello all, just thought i'd do a quick intro. Actually registered on the site many years ago but life got in the way of ever participating and hopefully I'll change that. I've owned a C350 sport coupe for the last 11 years, only meant to be 3 but it served me so well that there was never a...

    Command has lost it!

    yeah, sorry i meant to update the thread. so they had it in for days trying to work out what the problem was, and in the end it was the ipod kit. for some reason that was the problem, they replaced it with a new kit and everything's back working perfectly. my kit was only 18 months old, but i...

    Command has lost it!

    Thanks all - pulled the fuse, depressingly didn't fix it. Was definitely the right fuse for command. Given the different opinions on pulling off the battery, perhaps my best bet is to take it to our local indie mercedes garage ... unless anyone has any other final wisdom. thanks everyone...
