    Insurance praise!!

    As some of you may know I crashed my sl350 on 30th July this year. To cut a long story.... I phoned direct line the next time day, they told me to take it to their approved repair centre, it was written off. I had a phone call of the assessor/valuer who discussed the value, I pointed out...

    In praise of Becker

    Just driven 2,500 km across Europe and it hasn't put a foot wrong. I don't understand why people knock it, at £250 a pop from Ebay why would you have anything else?

    Praise for MB Birmingham

    While hurtling along the A38 towards Worcester a week ago, I nearly jumped out of my skin when the low pressure alert on my W169 A-Class sounded (the alarm is very loud, by-the-way). When I stopped the car there was nothing visibly to indicate anything was wrong, but an all-round check...

    All praise the marketing boys........

    From a write up on the new A Class "design to satisfy needs long before they're even expressed" "a car's shape must be able to outlast the vagaries of time, and that only happens if it springs from a higher ideal" "a fusion of fresh concepts moulded seamlessly together by a design language...

    MB Giffnock Praise

    Praise to the dealers when it's due. :thumb: Had a warning light on my R350 which indicated possbile fuel pressure problems so booked it in. Dealer checked things for about 1 hour and fixed a number of problems free-of-charge because I was a good customer.

    Praise for Lufthansa!

    Not MB related, but German (LOL)! Can't say enough to praise Lufthansa who were (even in Moscow - not known for polite service!) were efficient and helpful when we decided to extend our stay by a few days (long story). The flights were standard, cheap economy (actually, the cheapst of all...

    Hi Everyone Browsing these forums is always fascinating .......... but sometimes a bit depressing ........... soooooo many problems ! But the fact we're all still here reading and posting must prove that Mercs offer so much more than the problems we're so interested to read about. So here's...

    C43 silencer deletion + praise for Olly/PCS

    Following a rewarding visit to Olly and all at PCS :thumb: (new lower control arms, amongst other things = feels twice as planted on the road) I spent a wee bit on something just for me and had the centre silencer removed today, replaced at Powerflow agents Top Gear in St Albans*. Will stick a...

    Currys - praise

    Well seeing as forums tend to vent I thought I should give a rare vote of praise to my local Currys (Torquay). Looking for camcorder & compact camera - had great service, knowledgeable and not pushy - wow. The only downside was that the service was so good I ended up buying a memory card...

    MOT praise for '91 w124.

    I took my 300CE-24 for its MOT test yesterday and did the usual, ie show the tester how the seat back locks work etc. The emissions test went a wheeze with the tester saying that the car would pass the latest emissions test for a modern car they were so good. Then we got to the brake test. I...

    Praise for a dealer

    I recently bought a 1999 S320 from Mercedes at Salisbury, unusual for a dealer to be selling a car of this age, but it only had 39k on the clock. Anyway, the Comand worked fine, except it would not show maps and the electrical steering wheel adjustment stopped. I received a phone call from them...

    Tony Purslow Basingstoke - High Praise

    I've reported good things about these guys before, but I have reason to be impressed again. Recently I started getting an odd feeling through my steering. I contacted Purslows who ventured a few ideas about what it might be and promptly dispatched a chap 20 miles from their dealership to my...

    High Praise for C55

    Autocar this week bade farewell to their long-term C55 Estate this week with high praise indeed, from people who drive more cars than most of us have hot diners. The true test of any car is of course only over time which makes their comments all the more valid. Hopefully there will be others of...

    In praise of S&R, Formby - again!

    Took mum's car down on Friday for a B service. Inspection discovered a knackered water pump and broken front spring (so 2 new ones). Cutting a long story (and day!) short, the guys stayed til 8pm sorting things out. The pump turned up about 6:30. Everything else, inlcuding two springs had been...

    Praise For Brabus Kent

    I can not praise these blokes highly enough. I had the SRS warning light come on last night and took my car to MB of Gillingham this morning. They said they couldn't do anything until Monday 10th and would be an initial inspection charge of 1/2 hrs labour (£45+vat) :eek: , then they would quote...
