Hello All,

Three weeks into owing a 2008 280 brought for those Sunday afternoons out, which I thought would be a good way to spend the money that Mrs B didn't blow on a holiday last year thanks to Covid!

Have also had to tell her to cancel this years as well, seeing as i then went on to spend over 拢2k on new wheels, new head unit (couldn't live with a FM radio & CD player only, even in a second card!) a few minor repairs (big thanks to Richard Hollings MB specialist in York) plus a shed cos there wasn't enough room for everything in the garage! all in three weeks!!馃槶

Anyway love the car, and love the forum, already managed to pick up plenty of useful info, so thanks to all those posts people have made over the years.

Thanks everyone nice to be made to feel welcome.

Although thinking of starting a Go fund me page with all these niggles to sort out!

Heart sank on a drive out on Sunday when the engine light came on ,computer says P0128 so hopefully won't be too serious or break the bank. However it won't be long before I'm on first name terms with everyone including the cleaner at my local Merc specialist.

Still judging by the weather for the last couple of days got plenty of time to get sorted before the summer every arrives.
