Oh dear! :frown:
Well that's put a bit of a damper on everything. I really feel for you. Under what conditions do these blisters form? Heat, wet, Cold, etc???

Welcome!

Greetings from Buckinghamshire. Looks like you have found yourself an absolute cracker of a car there.

Hope you will be keeping it with the same care as the previous owner. I'd never heard of the 125 edition either.

Yes, it is thank you. And what’s more, I appear to be very fortunate in that I don’t have any paint problems with the blistering that some unfortunate owners have had with this colour.
Over the years I’ve owned 1 C Class, 6 E Class, 1 S Class one 3 SLK’s including this one, and of all the cars, I love this more than all the others. It’s perfect.
