Im looking to buy a new service book to get it all stamped up as the current one is a bit tatty.

Anyone know how much they are?

Less than a tenner, they have duplicate stamped through them though.

I would say that a tatty non duplicate service book is a better bet than a mint duplicate one in the eyes of future buyers...

£7.50 at your delear and you can ask for a print out of your Merc spec. :D
 
Sorry to hi-jack you thread.

I bought my car last year with no service history. It's 1994 c180. Would they have the details for mine?

They'll have some, but it may not have seen the inside of a franchised dealer workshop for years, as the older ones tend to migrate to indies.
 
Ahh i didn't know they have duplicate on them.

See the car was bought from a leasing company and well as you know there not the best at keeping everything together.

I have a print out of all the places work was carried out well it was all done at Uxbridge Dealer.

Cheers Nick, I know the first owners name was a Mr. Albert Bromley my reg is A18ROM, Afters the original owners untimely death... It was then sold to another guy, He then sold it on due to impending litigation after his company went bust (About this time service history went missing). It was sold to the chap who I bought it from and it has 118K on the clock. The first 2 gents who had the car were marticulous about getting it serviced at main dealers. I know this to be true because I have a friend who knows the first two owners and knew the car well...

Write to MB Holland. You have to provide proof of ownership. :D
Thanks Dragon, Do you have the address for them, and what sort of proof do they require?
 
Sorry but I doubt that you will get anywhere with finding records going back up to 14 years. Just about every MB dealer has been through some sort of change of ownership and all with have had new IT systems - and afraid the last thing on their minds has been keeping records for the benefit of future owners of old cars. This was my experience a few years ago on a car that was only 6 years old so must be worse now.
You can console yourself with the fact that it will not alter the value of your C180 by very much anyway.
 
You are not expected to provide proof of ownership as the information regarding servicing is in the public domain and vital if you are checking a car's history prior to purchase!

'Fraid not mate.

MB UK wanted copies of the V5 and my driving licence before they would tell me anything about the car's history.

Then, all they told me were mileages and dealership names. I had to go to the respective dealers and get them to stamp the book. To get copy invoices I had to supply the same docs I supplied to MB UK plus the bill of sale showing me as the car's purchaser to each of the dealerships.

The reason for this is that because all servicing and repairs were done for a previous owner they are 'Data Protected' to that person.
