    Have you drive a late E and S class Merc? Whats the difference in longer drives

    btw - when we trun up in the gle with her 4 digit reg plate people think we are loaded which gives me a nice feel but I guess you won't get that with the e class. Not being a snob/etc it's just a feel good factor as I've always seen our cars as an extension of our home.

    Anyone seen any good number plates on cars lately?

    The letters are mis-spaced and I saw one Evoke today, same problem ie mis-spaced reg. I've noted mis-spaced reg a few times this week. I guess the cops are not bothering.

    Thank you OFTR and MJ I have a service plan and I think the 5th year service price was over 1100 pounds, I forget how much they charged last year but the price on the invoice was well below what they were quoting without a service plan. Last year was the first service under the 3 year service...

    Gearbox service - 2016 E class

    I've been looking at MB service prices in London - have they been reduced or is it because I bought a service plan last year and they are showing me the service plan prices?
