    113K on front brake pads. A new record?

    Daily banger, a '98 C250 TD. I changed the front pads yesterday at 205K after getting just a glimmer of warning a couple of days ago from the brake pad warning light on the dash. Looking at the car's SH I see the pads & discs were last changed in 2008 when it had covered 92K. I've had the...

    E 350 service record via diagnostic socket

    Just curious when the service indicator is reset after a service, is this date and time stamped in a way that is retrievable. In other words does the car store it?

    E Class Missing Service Record

    Was about the pull the trigger on a 63 plate E-Class (14k miles) from a main Merc dealer & asked about the Service History.

    I have been trying to get my insurance record corrected for 4 years now. Back in 2010 a 3rd party failed to stop at a stop sign and hit the side of my car. His insurance company admitted liability and I successfully claimed from his insurance. For some reason this has been listed as being a...

    New record?

    Surely this must be some sort of record. I replaced distributor cap and rotor arm on my R129 300SL24 and the rotor arm lasted a total of 18 minutes (at idle!). Admittedly they weren't Bosch or MB parts as I couldn't get any in the time frame I had so ended up with Bremi from GSF but even so...
