    Hello!
    The names Jay & I've had my W202 TD Sport for over 3 weeks now, loving it to bits. It now brings the total tally of W202s in the family to three now. My younger bro has a C220 diesel & the parents have a C250 TD saloon.
    Just wondering if there are any local MB owners around & if there are any upcoming meets in the Dorset or surrounding areas to meet like minded enthusiasts.

    Thanks for all the warm welcomes everyone!

    ADY: Im based in Wareham, but work in Christchurch, a nice 50mile round trip, what better car to do it in?

    Nick: Who/where in Hampshire is 'Ollies', is there a thread for it? I'd be interested in showing my face.

    Cheers chaps! Could anyone shed some light as to where these wheels originally came from? Was it a W202 item or from another MB? The previous owner was a MB sales person & claimed they were AMG items, somehow I find that hard to believe as there are so many replicas out there.

    They are AMG Style I wheels, do yours have AMG written on them? from the pictures, they appear to be orignal.

    The were an optional extra for the W202, normally fitted on the C36/C43.

    I had them on my old W202.

    Welcome from another recent W202 owner, bought mine a week ago, who's enjoying his car. Been doing loads of little jobs and handing out a bit of TLC to my new aquisition as well as putting her to good use, the car's responding well and is returning me 330 miles so far on a full tank, yet the needle is still on a quarter. Not bad since it's a 2 litre and I've been clearing the engine out on some of my runs ;)
    I'll be trying 97 ron in her next time I fill her up.
