    Rear suspension sitting low

    Help! My 2005 E Class 320CDI Advantgarde Estate was being serviced yesterday. It was up on ramps. It didn't return to its normal ride height and is sitting very low at the rear. The front looks slightly higher. I'd guess as the rear is low. Any ideas?? Please don't say expensive!!! Thanks

    I was really surprised that our poppies from the London installation arrived today. It was interesting opening them as there was mud on them and the stems were muddy too. It must have been a logistical headache but very impressive!

    Rusting brake lines

    After the E320 on a 55 plate was serviced yesterday it was showing rusty brake lines on the rear. So a 9 year old car where there is a plastic protection guard underneath. Wouldn't have shown up if the one plastic guard wasn't slightly loose. Normal or should I be disappointed?
