    With email addresses / name removed, here is a conversation that Mark just had

    Bloke mails in: -

    So Mark figures that we don't know who this is, and as we don't know whose car he is trying to start & that its probably against the law to assist someone doing this without diligintly checking they own the car, but do suggest that MB may actually help him for free, as many new Mercedes owners dont know about Mobilo Life

    And this is the fine response from this clearly well educated gentleman ..
    (the **** werent particularly rude, just unpleasant)

    Had to bite my tongue , so thought i'd vent here.

    I bet there are more nice customers (like us) - than time wasters like this.

    Next time advise him on how to start it, then suggest adding some fine sand to the induction just after the filter to clear things out :D

    Cant let these people get to you, i've met a few before and their complete lack of social ability will ALWAYS hold them back in the end.

    Scary thing is that this type of dimwit is also the type of person that would try what is suggested without thought and then sue when their engine dies.

    Can't believe how some people manage to get by in day to day life...

    Nice response. I'd reply 'if you think the breakdown is frustrating, imagine how frustrated you'll be driving up hills in a C180". :devil:

    As a separate issue, what exactly constitutes "serviced to MB standard"? (Sorry, I know this is an old and repeated question.)

    But I'm wondering how this is defined by MB. For example, my indy uses all genuine parts (bought through the local dealership) but he's not part of any MB franchise, therefore MB wouldn't honour the mobilo cover, would they?

    (I asking because i'm trying to decide whether I should buy road side cover when I break my W220's MB history by having the next service done by my indy)

    I believe that most rude people tend to also be very cowardly as i only really experiance rudeness where people cant see me (over the phone or on the road or on forums for example) I'm a 6'6" long haired leather jacket wearing beardy bloke so generally i find most people very polite face to face, and i've seen them go from very rude to VERY polite in milliseconds if i get out of the car after being yelled at. :D
