Nice Offer

Pleased that it is sorted and the other point I would make that for those who would not undertake any work take it at least to an MB independent.

It is important to use a garage that are familiar with our make of car.

Garage
congrads on getting it all fixed and firing on all cylinders I have had mine for 7 months and only last weekend was able to take it fr an extended drive (more than 25km) took the misus for lunch 160km away and returned to find i had big browny points for not only lunch but for an enjoyable uneventful fun drive
I kept telling her it was a good car.

Hope you enjoy the ride.

these are gr8 cars i just wish i had bought one sooner ive had porsche and evos but i find the slk to be a very interesting undersetimated pocket rocket.
i only got rid of my 1971 charger that was fun but with the traction control off i can have cheaper fun in the slk
remember dont just drive it keep on top of regular servicing and only use MB service parts it will look after you and they aint as expencive as ppl think

once i am old enough in this forum i will put up some pix of the past 5 years rides cheers guy dont hesitate to give me a shout if i can help i will cheers
