Yes, well there's nothing more satisfying than someone telling you that you made the right choice, is there? :D

Right choice, most definitely. The amount of people who admire my car or people driving past that stare still amazes me, good feeling of making the right choice.

Far better value than buying a load of (poorly photocopied) magazine re-prints, is to pick up a collection. The best pair I got for the W202 were-

Unique Motor Books "Mercedes C Class" ISBN 1 901 977 90-0

and

Transport Source Books "Mercedes Benz C Class 1990s"

The first book has over 120 pages of re-prints and the second around 90.

Unique are on 01702 207384

Transport Source Books are 01473 212912

Ahem, I bought both through the "other" Mercedes Enthsuasts website.

Thoroughly recommended, and they do all the others too (SLK W124 etc).

These books saved me a FORTUNE in re-prints!!!!

:bannana:

Excellent info Flip, thanks a lot.


I quite like reading literature - it's the details you find out.
