    Advice on this C63?

    Just to give an update, I didn't end up going for this C63, something just didn't feel right. Anyways, thought I'd try an M3 and instantly fell in love with it, probably in the minority but I actually much preferred it to the C63, the seats to me felt better and everything just nicely wraps you...

    Advice on this C63?

    I've been looking at a few and the side bolster does seem to wear very quickly on these cars. Like you say, they take a beating as people get in and out.

    Mercedes W210 E60 AMG. Rust Free!

    Wheels definitely do not look original, wouldn't the whole point of a car like this to be as close to original spec as possible?

    Advice on this C63 Estate?

    Engine was replaced at a mercedes dealer. Guess I was swayed by the price, it's 3.5k cheaper than the next C63 estate.

    Advice on this C63 Estate?

    Makes sense, but if it had been thrashed, I'd have expected MB would have done everything to get out of changing the engine, knowing how how most manufacturers don't like doing this kind of thing, I'd assume that MB had done a thorough investigation to see if it was an engine fault or if it was...

    C class (W204) Luggage capacity

    Hello all, it's time to change my E class, I'm looking to move to a C63. One of the many great things about the E class was the size of the boot! I'd like to hear from anyone that has had a saloon or estate or even both as to how much luggage(big suitcases) you can get into each? Looking at...

    Thanks for the advice and info everyone! A quick update. Ruled out the boxster, the car is primarily for the Mrs and the boxster would be a little too compromised in the comfort department, and the running costs were a bit scary by all accounts... Saw three SLK's in the end, a loaded SLK350...

    I'm 6 foot and I found the SLK fine, certainly more comfortable than the lowered MX5 we have now!

    Apparently the 550 anniversary came with the lowered suspension and 18 inch wheels. So the ride is likely to be on the "firm" side!

    Which is more fun - SL or SLK?

    It's nice to have a car that you actually need to work the engine, lot's of torque get's kind of boring after a while, nothing better than driving B roads and working the gear box to carry the most speed and have the engine singing. Round the twisties an MX5 is a joy to drive. As has been...

    No Service Book?

    When buying a MB it always pays to phone MB customer services and ask when and where the car was serviced, this in a way is more valuable than a service book. It shouldn't be difficult to get a service book for a 3 year old car, let the dealer sort it out for you.

    Just viewed R129 SL500, need advice please.

    Agreed, air con makes a big difference when demisting windows in winter and on hot days when you get some rain. Also, if you get stuck in traffic on a hot day then you can put the roof up and stay cool. If it's going to be more than a weekend toy then air con is a must. Salesmen are the worst...
