    2009 S204 (Estate) Offside boost (intercooler) pipe relacement

    Hi, Has anyone done this, and can advise on how easy a job it is or has anyone come across any videos online? I am being quoted £400 for MB to change it (which sounds extortionate). Also, is it just an air pipe or does it contain oil, the technician said mine is leaking oil...? I would be...

    Long since gone from eBay - sorry. I have been looking for a pre facelift one in Palladium Silver for over a year, I finally got one the other day but have to pay £340 for it....

    W204 (S204) Estate Boot Toolkit

    Ah ok, then I think have it (minus the triangle). I've certainly got the spacesaver spare (although the seller had removed it when I went to look at the car!)

    A car for my son

    I believe Admiral also do this. It sounds daft but TPFT isn't always cheaper than fully comp. See here for more tips getting cheaper insurance

    W204 (S204) Estate Boot Toolkit

    Does anyone know where I can get one of these? I just have an empty foam tray under the carpet. I've trawled eBay and contacted a few breakers but no luck. Can anyone actually tell me what tools should be there? Many thanks.

    Integrated child seats

    So i've just put our two ISOFIX child seats in the back of our new C Class estate (2009). Only to find out that the space left between the seats is smaller than in my Golf....! This is quite a bummer... Does anyone know if you can retro fit the Integrated MB child seats, does it involve...

    Private plates - Yes or No?

    KIG 9111, means nothing to me but may be able to flog it to a vain porsche owner in a few years for a few quid?

    Private plates - Yes or No?

    I've always been a no person myself but my new Merc has a really crappy hard to remember registration so I have found myself tempted by a cheap simpler replacement which would also hide the age. I would avoid any names as I've always found myself thinking people with plates like "Tom 9" or...
