Just had to return a 2013 golf gti to a main dealer.

Picking up my new (to me) S500L W221 on Monday.
Slightly scary with the mpg, car tax and sheer value on the road, but it had to be done, and with an 8 mile commute I'm persuading myself that a petrol engine is better for the environment too :bannana:
I returned the Mercedes Car... Received 2 letters stating that I owe fees for repairs and excess mileage.
These were due on 4 October and I made payment on 2 October.
Received an arrears letter on 6 October asking for money when I have already made a payment.
Looking at the online card...
Not so much a new member but a returning one! Sadly my last post was in 2007 when I had my E220 Coupe. Glad to have logged back in recently to see that our previous discussion had helped a few out of trouble with their electronics.

thought I'd share with you my very recent trip through Europe down to Bulgaria in my 1993 S500.
I had a conversion to lpg before the trip as I reckon this saved me about £500 for the return journey.
It's about 1800 miles one way, through France, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Serbia and...
I bought a W124 E220 estate 4 weeks ago, 3 days later my neighbour reversed out of her driveway straight into the front of it as I was driving past so it spent the next 2 weeks off being repaired. I eventually got it back on Saturday and its doesn't look too bad at all, needed a new passenger...
My brother in law sent my daughter a cheque for her birthday drawn on an offshore account with HSBC but it has been returned by Smile as suspected forged.
