    Finally get chance to try the ML in snow!

    After the harsh winter last time, I swapped the W212 for the ML last July. Today is the first time I've been able to check it out in the snow.

    What chance of getting my deposit refunded on a used vehicle?

    Yesterday, I paid a deposit of £3000 to a mercedes dealership for a CLS costing £19k.
