Had a look underneath my 2006 ML and was surprised to see significant corrosion on the rear sub-frame and on the floor around the sub-frame mounting points. Neither area is in a position that gets a lot of spray so I was a little surprised. If left untreated I think this would cause...
Hi folks, I have a 2002 W203 c270cdi estate, which has recently had front suspension work completed. The car is an elegance model with sports chassis, so I spec'd the springs as such, Sachs sports lowered for C270/C320cdi. The struts are also spec'd Bilstein B4 for this model, and I also got the...
Hi. I got some time ago information on my W210 from the chassis number. It was great, gave the cars full spec. I can't remember where I got it. I know someone on here gave me the link. I have bought a nice 1998 C240 estate. It's a Japanese import. Would love to get the full information from the...

I've noticed small amounts of surface rust on the chassis members behind the rear wheel arches. Nothing serious but nonetheless it is rust.
Should I attempt to sand down the rust and paint with Hammerite or just give the area a good clean and apply some protective wax?

Not sure how I've managed not to notice before but I saw this today when I opened the fuel filler:
I'm not sure if it's supposed to have something in the boxes on the bottom sticker or not, or if all cars had this but the sport chassis optioned cars had numbers in there.
How can I tell if my...
Bid to £205 w/ 1 day to go.
Bloke doesn't seem to know it has the highly 'sort' after 650 option, sport chassis with 15 hole alloys, which look to have been replaced with what might be Lorinsers.
