So after 2 years I'm back. I've just brought a c63 507 coupe and I can't be happier. I've had quite a journey in the last 2 years treating myself to some of the best cars in my eyes.
a brief history after I sold my old c63 2012 saloon.
sold the c63 for a
Bentley Continental 2010
Just bought a 2 year old C class coupe and the previous owner hasn't had the Comand maps updated. Can I just book it into my local MB dealer for an update or will they only do it at service time?

I read this on the BBC news and remember the case in 1976. 40 years on I wonder if somebody is sitting there waiting for that knock on the door? What a tragic event for the family.
