Brooklands 11th December
Any more details on the meet? Time of arrival and where - car park outside main building? Lunch or not, if yes, where? Contact phone number on the day? etc. etc.
I used Chips away last weekend. He was here for over 2 hours and touched in over 50 very small stone chip marks and one slightly bigger mark on the boot lid. Charged £70.00 plus VAT. I would definately reccommend the chap that I used, but I suppose the quality of the job depends on who you get...
I don't have a record of it being a special order, but I do realise that the colour is quite rare. I have full service history by main MB dealers plus one indy. 2002 car on a 51 reg with 38k miles, and rust free!
I am completely flummoxed by the references to various models by the numbers and letters that forumites use to identify their cars.
eg:- W124,W208, R107 A210 etc.etc.
Can someone please enlighten me as to which cars that they refer to -- SLK 230, E 190, SLK 320 etc.
I have not long had a SLK230, a great car, but watch out for the pinion bearing whining. If the torque is set incorrectly it sends the bearing a bt skew whiff and you end up with not only the seal leaking but the whine too.
I have a couple of oil leaks from the differential on my Slk 230. One is from the front pinion seal and the other from the gasket at the rear of the diff.
I understand that the pinion seal has a squashable ring which ensures that tolerances are within bounds. Does anyone know how to get this...
