Hi,
New to Mercedes. Just bought a Mercedes 500SL R107 1988. Thought the best thing to do was to get it fully serviced before driving it. Can anyone recommend as good independent in Essex area. I am in Billericay.

MotorAid in Basildon or RS Automotive in Shoeburyness have got some good press from people I know with MB's over the years.

RSA have done some work on a friends E63 very recently and he was impressed with their approach and workmanship

I’ve dropped car off to Gem Tech who seem a lovely bunch. I’ll let you know the outcome. Also if anyone needs a car delivered on a flatbed I used a chap called David who was brilliant and super reasonable 07976 773030. He got my car to Gem Tech for only £75!!

I need to get a spare key cut, the keys are very plain. Can’t you get a blank for a R107 with a Mercedes logo on it? Checked The SL Shop and only have one type and it’s very bland.

Congrats on the purchase :)

Saw this one on auction and was keeping an eye on the sale price :)

I've just got a second key cut from mine at the dealers - cost me £27 :thumb:

Got this car for my wife. She drove it over the weekend and hated it! I love it but I guess she is used to 4x4s now. Shame...
