    A Pleasant Surprise

    While we were on holiday in early September I checked my phone while relaxing in a bar(!) and found an email from the AMG Private Lounge offering a free draw for a giveaway. Filled in the form there and then and forgot all about it. Came home from work tonight to find a "While You Were Out"...

    Something pleasant for the pedants...

    I completed a job today that I'd been meaning to do since getting the car - I almost held out to upset the purists but I much prefer the cleaner lines. I also polished the car to within an inch of its life before going through a whole load of detailing stuff which is best left for a different...

    Pleasant surprise....

    Having heard all the horror stories about how much renewals were this year, I braced myself for a kicking and thought I'd be spending several hours on the telephone/net looking for a better deal. Renewal came today. £27.00 cheaper than last year, plus an extra £20.00 discount if I renew...

    Mercedes interior trim prices, a pleasant surprise!

    Ever since acquiring my W203 saloon I have been bugged by the lack of the coin tray in the centre console as it leaves an ugy hole for the emergency gearshift release, in addition the cigar lighter although having power would not latch nor has it lit up at night and although a non smoker I do...

    A pleasant evening - it was just after that was bad!!

    Few drinks with friends so stayed over with someone in Leeds (60 miles from where I live). Heard what sounded like gunfire in my dreams at about 1am Up at 7, teeth brushed, brew drunk and out to car. Car (no damage) is slap bang in middle of a police cordon as the gunfire was real!! Been sat...

    Pleasant drive up from Ashford on Saturday.

    In my new clk 320 Avantgarde convertable! 2001 facelift. What a lovely car to drive, and amazing fuel consumption. Cruise set to 80, with the occasional blast, and returned 33.5 mpg. Now, most people say what a wonderful car they have bought with beautiful coachwork, and interior. Well I...

    MB Derby - a pleasant surprise -

    Well today was my first ever visit to an MB dealer for warranty work... I have to say it was a very pleasant experience indeed! Having been met by Harry, the Service Manager, the job was confirmed and I had a lift from them to the office. I'd asked for one of their £20 valet's, but they did...

    A Pleasant Surprise, in fact, 2 surprises!

    Recently on checking the brake pads on the ML at 27000 miles, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the pads were less than 50% worn. I am told that 27000+ miles on original pads in a ML is probably some sort of record. Also on checking oil level, no topping up was necessary. I actually...

    Just been "quoted" for B Service - pleasant surprise?

    Hi all, Just rang my local Dealer (Canary Wharf) for a quote on a B Service for my E320 diesel. The chap quoted me "around £270", subject to any extra bits needing doing. This struck me as being, if not actually cheap, then at least not as expensive as I anticipated. I had been planning...

    Was pleasant surprise at stealer's, not any more

    After feeling I was getting a good deal at MB Worcester see other post, the dealer phoned Me on Friday and left a message on my answer phone, he said his manager reminded him that Glasses only supply a price for the auto C220 and not the manual. So the £17.5K he had said he was going to give me...

    Pleasant surprise at stealership

    I have decided to sell my '03 220CDI saloon so I spent all day yesterday washing, polishing to get it looking nice (its silver so it always looks nice) for the trip to MB Worcester today. I thought being as I had brought it over from an MB dealer in Holland they would give me a crap price, it...
