    Lease car return recommendations

    I did consider another C350 but an estate - but have decided not to lease again. It's a great way of getting a nice new motor for a lot less a month than a PCP deal but I have ordered a new Audi A4 2.0T Quattro Avant this time. Fancied a change from MB, didn't want a BM so plumped for an Audi...

    Lease car return recommendations

    Well in case anyone is interested Mercedes came by and 'inspected' my car before its return next week. I am glad to report they stated it is within the defines of 'wear and tear' and I do not have anything to pay. Even with some minor wheel kerbing and a damaged front seat they just said...

    Cool. It sounds like MBFS are not as fussy as they used to be. Just be upfront and repair any major issues. Thanks for your help chaps.

    Lease car return recommendations

    The prices quoted on the site are actually less than I have been roughly quoted by firms near to where I live. Tempted just to give it a clean and hand it back. The damage is only minor while 1 dent would actually need a repair, so up to £90 for that repair. £55 to repair a curbed wheel, I was...

    Perfect must of missed that PDF. Doesn't sound as bad as some of the horror stories online. I have a curbed wheel and 3 minor dents on the doors, all of which are on separate panels.

    Thanks for the link. I was really after anyone's feedback on returning a car to MBFS. Are they still very piccy about what they charge for and do they still charge the earth for any repairs? Cheers

    Dent repair for Mercedes lease car?

    Found this guy mentioned in the forums Dent Devils - Technicians (Keith Allen). Seems he is not too far from my house - perfect. Anyone recommend a wheel repairer? Thanks

    Dent repair for Mercedes lease car?

    Hi guys I am returning my C350 in a few months and I need to sort out some minor 'Tesco' door bumps and a kerbed wheel. Can anyone recommend a mobile repairer or one in the Peterborough/Cambridge area? I seem to remember someone mentioning a company that specialises in lease car return...

    07 C320CDI vs 12 250CDI

    I did on my C350. Its a little pointless and I prefer to be in control. Go into the menu and you can put it back into manual mode. DAB is one thing I wish I had spec'd. A few friends have it around the Peterborough/Cambridge area and say they rarely have a break up and rate it very highly. If...

    Leasing C350 CDI - any thoughts?

    Very good so far. I am 1 year into the lease now. Although all they really do is sort out the initial lease costs and delivery. Then its over to you for servicing etc. I guess they will be involved in the return of my 350 next September.

    W204 C350 CDi B/E - Questions

    A few friends have DAB and I really like it. I didn't spec it and wished I had. Signal is fine around here (Peterborough area). Don't get me wrong I like the panoramic sunroof but I don't think it's really worth the extra over a normal one. I didn't try the COMAND system and just plumped for...

    W204 C350 CDi B/E - Questions

    I have had my C350CDI 2011 since new (12 months old now) and average 36MPG. Great car my only views not related to yours: 1) Don't bother with the Backer SatNav - not very good. I use my tomtom and never turn on the Becker. 2) Don't bother with the panoramic sunroof - get a normal one if you...

    c350 cdi vs c350 cgi real world mpg????

    This is a great thread I keep coming back to :) I have a 2011 C350CDI and while I love the torque and sheer speed of the thing I will be going back to a petrol when I change it next year. Like Gizze I cannot put it down into words, just having a petrol with a better sound track is more...

    Gobsmacked

    My C350 went back 5 times to fix a rattling seat belt fixture. They eventually replaced the entire seat belt at a cost of over £350 (so the dealer told me) and it cured the problem. I have to say Mercedes Peterborough didn't flinch when I kept bringing it back. They tried until they fixed it.
