    Does not make sense for them to go ahead with examining the car without notifying you of the diagnostic cost.

    Perhaps I should have said being precautious rather than difficult. :)

    C200 Diesel Estate - Cabin Smell

    I have a diesel but not having such issues. If diesel smell is entering the cabin, it could become a bigger problem.

    Did not notice you car flooded. I would take it to a garage to inspect.
