    My C204 doesn't have an VIN Plate

    Yep. That is what I was looking for. :( I wonder how a car can leave the factory without it and nobody ever realises. I had the car since 2011. It has 7 services, 4 MOTs and many recalls from MB.

    My C204 doesn't have an VIN Plate

    Thanks for your help. I will ring MB tomorrow and ask. Yes, the car had a full respray done by MB but I am sure it wasn't there before so maybe it was missing from the start.

    My C204 doesn't have an VIN Plate

    In the front window I have just the VIN. I need the kerb weights and the rest of the info.

    My C204 doesn't have an VIN Plate

    That's the one I need. It is not anywhere on my car. I just lifted both driver and passenger carpets and I found nothing. Nothing on the engine bay or boot either. How weird.

    It hasn't got the sticker on the door sill. I has never had one there. I need the one where it says the axis weight together with the vin number.

    Hi, Long story short. I moved to Spain a few months ago (permanently) and I am in the process to register my C class coupe in Spain. First thing is to get to pass an MOT in Spain. Issue 1. I don't have the Certificate of Conformity which should have been with the paperwork when I bought it...

    2 year old C Class Coupe paint problem!

    Body shop courtesy cars are plain and low spec from my experience. I got a A180 which was good enough for the job. They work took a couple of weeks but it took them over a month to get the MB approval for work. It came back perfect though. They even re-applied the paint protection it had when it...

    Mine was done at Manchester and they were exceptional.

    I agree. I got the wings painted too and it all matches.

    I would agree with that. As long as they are prepared to put it right, the car will look like new after and you should get a courtesy car while they do it. When they did mine, it was painless.

    Moving abroad for a couple of years. Storing the car

    We are thinking to move to Dubai for a couple of years for a change. We don't intend to rent the house or sell the Merc until we know what we are doing long term but as I don't have a garage I don't know what to do with the car. I really don't want to sell it but I can't just leave it outside...

    Another vote for MB Manchester. They had to do the bonnet and both doors but they did the wings too so all the paint matches perfectly. The car had the paint protection when new so they re-apply that for free too (£400ish when new). I had a new A class for the 10 days it took them to do the job.

    I stand corrected. Good luck with it. Its not nice to have the paint of your car in that condition.

    2 year old C Class Coupe paint problem!

    Clear coat peeling is not the same problem as the one described in this thread so MB will look into it in a different way I am sure. MB have ways to know if the car has been painted before like looking at the thickness of the paint. Having the roof wrapped or the front bumper painted will raise...
