New to the forum, owned 2 Mercs in the past and at 52 I want to get back into one. W124 would be nice, petrol and a bit of poke. Any advice and pointers greatly appreciated. Willing to travel for the right car.
The registration is: FX 08 TKO (so you can check the MoT history).
It is a 2008 model (delivered 08 May 2008), in Indium Grey metallic with semi-aniline black/anthracite leather interior and black bird’s eye maple woodwork. I am the third owner, from Dec 2016; the previous owner bought it in...
I had a warning come up asking me to top up coolant and a few days later the air conditioning has stopped working. I assume this is a sort of automatic switch off as protection?
What type of coolant should I use please?
For the first time I'm looking to buy a Merc, specifically I am looking for a 2011-2012 E class Estate (W212).

Cruising around 70 only showed 30mpg...

Can anybody tell if I will feel a...
Not something I would normally think about but I've just filled up at what was the most welcoming and wonderful petrol station of my life . Shockingly cheap fuel after €1.35-1.55 in the large valley towns. Heading from Bormio to Bolzano.

Question for any dealers or those in the trade.... with all the talk about those nasty diesel cars in the papers, has anyone noticed a rise in demand for petrol cars yet or has the media scaremongering fallen on deaf ears given diesels torque and economy. Not thinking of changing the motor...
