My r129 SL500 is playing up (gearbox related) and I desperately need a diagnostic on a Star machine. Would take it to my usual mechanic but he's 40 miles away and it currently won't shift out of first gear when driving.
Can anyone recommend an independent (reputable) who can pull off any fault...

My R129 SL500 has a recurring problem. After a long drive and having been in heavy traffic, it will surge then nearly stall when slowing to a stop. Appears to be when the gearbox down changes from 2nd to 1st (it's a 98 car with 5-sp electronically controlled...

I have a set of four 17" Mercedes Rucha alloys in Silver with tyres - they are in good condition but, with some kerbing, scratches and corrosion so will benefit from refurbishment to make them 100%.

Much as I love our E320 CDI estate for all its virtues (space, pace, comfort etc...) I'm in two minds what to do with it. Mechanically it's in fine fettle and only 96k miles. However the tin worm is making its presence felt around the edges and usual places. Also some of the interior finishes...
Just running thru an idea..
Very much liking our s210 320 CDi - great mechanically at 96k miles and fits the bill. A later s211 with simmilar engine / miles is going to cost a lot more if looking to replace.. The car fits the bill for what it does very well and have not real need to replace it...
Does anyone have a picture of a w210 or s210 with AMG III (3) five spoke alloys fitted? I just want to see how they look. They should be the 17s fronts 7.5 and rear 8.5 wide.
Please post if you can
Many thanks JK
