I know some...

    I doubt MB UK will be aware that the repair was carried out as it was done by what looks like a work shop trolley being pushed around the car whilst at the stealership. Also it was 95% on the bumper (so no chance of rust) and only a tiny down to metal scratch on the panel under rear light cluster.

    Good luck with your ChipsAway job, as others have said here the repair is down to the operator. I did a new W211 the other day which was a Merc' direct purchased car. It came with a nice scratched bumper which I was asked to correct for the new owner (A senior partner in a adult shop chain...

    Battery Replacement

    When I required a new battery on my W210 the local Brabus (Kent) garage fitted it for free and they were not expensive. I would enquire at MB first, you may be suprised at cost.

    I miss these GTG's :( . I thought I had stumbled upon a "FORD" GTG, thought it odd that no-one was looking at the cars then I realised it was just the Asda car park :D

    E Class Rust

    When I was looking at getting a 6/7 seater I had a good look at both the E-class and the V70. I imagined my kids in the back (3rd row) seat which is literally a "Bench" whilst I travelled to the S/France and I couldnt do it to them. This is why I eventually got a Galaxy. Whilst I think...
