    Recommendations for new set tyres

    Thanks for update on Goodyear tyres. I’ve just ordered a set and will have them fitted as soon as they arrive. If I can get 15000 miles out of them i’d be delighted. That would be double what I got out of the continental tyres.

    Yes I do have 19 inch rims and will have a look at Michelin. Meanwhile just had my car serviced. Seems my tyres have a little more life left than I thought according to the Mercedes Dealer. Still couple months new tyres.

    Recently Purchased Used 2014 E220 (W207) Coupe 32k Miles / SRS Warning Dealer Says Drive ?

    I had problems with a CLK I bought back in 2008, seemed to me the warranty had a lot of escape clauses. Consider the MB warranty a free extra and may help but the real protection is the Sale Of Goods Act and don't take no for an answer.

    Churchill renewal price £660 , quick look on money supermarket £478 . I did call them to see if they would match or do a better deal. No dice so best shop around.

    Disappointed by MB

    I've had all my Mercedes Serviced by an independent after the warranty expired. No huge bills and I had no trouble selling them when I changed cars . In fact I sold my 190E back in 1998 after 7 years trouble free driving for £2500 more than Mercedes offered me. I think the first 2 years I had it...

    Tried various shampoos and so far found Britemax Clean Max pH Balanced Vehicle Shampoo to be excellent. Also use angelwax snow foam before I wash the car which produces an amazing amount of snow foam.

    Yes I pay £37 pounds a month for my E200 coupe which I started about 7 months after I bought the car. I did mulll it over as I was not really keen to be on a monthly plan. It does include the automatic transmission fluid change and a free loan car.

    I had the same question with my E Class coupe after I bought it last year . I found on a hill it works without a problem . On a level surface for me it very hit or miss , occasionally it works.

    Do dealerships give gifts?

    After 26 years of dealing with Mercedes I've never had a gift, though I did negotiate two free services when they built me the wrong car in 1998. I asked for this in writing and when opened the letter which I collected it said one service which they had to change to two.
