I'm new to the forum having recently bought a W639 2011 Vito for transporting bikes to and from rides/races etc.
As per usual with me, the intention was initially to just have it as a workhorse and although look after and regularly service it, not get carried away with working on...
Hi Guys and Girls,
My Names Chris and I have finally lost my Merc Owners Virginity and ended up with a 2003 W203 C200 Kompressor in Silver. She has a few Body work issues but nothing that cant be fixed over time. Its Avantgarde Spec and only has 86000 on the clocks. My wife has owned a...
Hi all, its been a while and I haven't owned an MB since my GL was sold back in 2010!
I am at the early stages of looking for a new car and want a roadster, preferably with metal hard top. In the running is a Z4, but have also started looking at the R231 SL - the SLK/C is a little too small...
Hi, my name is Steve AKA Fidge. I'm from Sandwell in the West Midlands. I've just brought my first Mercedes-Benz it's a 2013/14 C180 Coupe with the AMG Sports Plus package in Diamond White Metallic. It's only done 18k miles.
My previous car was a Mazda RX8 PZ which I'd owned for 6 years and...
And the world is a beautiful place.
OK the good points first. I use the car pretty much every day and it makes my life just a bit more colourful! It's incredibly comfortable, well equipped and actually a very practical, sensible (I know lol) family car. People seem a lot more aware of what...
So I'm still new here and recently bought an E55 AMG W210.
The car is great and I've done nearly 400 miles in it already, just wafting around.
I'm looking for a little gentle advise with regards to new ownership of these cars, what should be done to prolong life of the mechanical...
I will keep this short and sweet!
Got a great 58k miles w202 and have fell in love with it. Joined the forum to help with keeping up to date with maintaining the car and troubleshooting!
So yeah, Hi all
...and it's been a wonderful experience so far. 3000 miles and I still look back at the car after I've parked it. Sometimes parking alongside 5-series and A6 and I just think my god, how blend are these cars?!
It's built like a tank but sadly as slow as one too :D
However I noticed a...
The 250TD S202 I bought last March has needed a new water pump at 155000 miles, a couple of bulbs, a wiper blade, and a set of plastic pipes and injector seals.
In 12000 busy miles, that is not bad for a busy car that has shifted furniture and building materials from here to France several...
Hello to All!!!
I have recently joined this forum and also planning to purchase a new S class (w222). Just wanted to touch base with other s class owners to know about common issues i should be aware of, options that i could avoid as they are not of much use thereby reducing cost price of...
Had my car about 3 weeks and for the last week it's been in the garage because the panoramic roof will not open! They've changed the control motor and still it's getting stuck.. Now they're saying it all needs fully replacing. Is this common?
Also what are my rights. An almost 20k...
Today marks the 1 year annaversary for me and my E55 AMG

4x continental 5ps fitted .
First week of ownership of our little C180 Komp is over and couldnt be happier.
Im more than happy with the perfotmance of the tiny 1.6, and it is so quiet and smooth without a single rattle anywhere, which is not always the case as im starting to reslise the more i read on here lol
This time...But my wife has hit a kerb again!
I'm conscious when the garage was trying to sell me the alloy wheel cover, they advised the wheel would be replaced rather than repaired because it's diamond cut.
What's the verdict; repairable or replace?
Inspired by a thread on Pistonheads where the owner of a T124 reveals the true cost of running one, I thought i'd share some of my experience of living with a W220 and what it really costs.
First off, let it be known that i'm in the motor trade and generations before me have also...
