    Pretty fed up with scammers while trying to sell an honest car

    Have my ml up for sale, at a decent price, it's pretty damn amazing. Last night I get a call from a dealer asking really in depth questions about the car. Mid sent ace he stops me to tell me he wanted to see who the scammer was. I was confused but long story short some foreign person has...

    Top Notch Sprayers Devon Found

    Yay a quick post as people are always looking for a decent Repair Man and there are not many decent ones around my area at all. Well I have found one or 2 actually.

    Decent breakers..... Door needed

    Am having no joy whatsoever in sourcing a door for my w164 ml. I was going to have it repaired but after a ton of sprayers giving me ridiculous quotes, a decent one refused to do it due to the "ripples" in the "flexible" part. Nice to find an honest guy for once. I am left with needing a door...

    Ml280 Re-Map opinions???

    I guys, newish owner of a ml280cdi 2007 model. I am shocked at the fuel economy. I have owned many 4x4s and drive them with the respect they should get, it's not a car. It's similar to the economy of my ml270 which is horrendous. My previous car was a 2005 x5 3.0d and was a lot better. It's...

    Black ml drivers door w164

    Ive had a prang, a big one involving a concrete pillar, in desperate need of a drivers door as repairing it is ridiculous, they see an ml and presume they can rip you off, it's quite annoying, I have never payed more than £150 to repair similar damage (which I see as a reasonable price for the...

    Daytime Running Lights w164 Ml280

    Have seen this done a couple of times with people claiming they have done the mod themselves and it turns out a car shop of some sort did it. Has anyone ran "switchback DRL's" on the indicator strip at the lower part of the headlight. There are 2 tubes that carry and spread the light of the...

    Transmission Service Interval/Ml280 MPG

    Hi guys/ladies the previous owner of my ml280cdi had a new speed sensor fitted at 65k, I have just purchased at 83k. Obviously it would have had a fluid change, but it was at a back ally dealer and looking at the service history he seems WELL suspect. Should I get it changed again? My x5 blew...

    Mileage or condition?

    I guys I am looking for an ml280 or 320 cdi I have around 11k. I normally swear by higher mileage cars that have had an easy life, my a6 has 179k and is mint and my x5 had 171k and was on the original rear discs! As they have both been motorway warriors. I seem to find that these lower mileage...
