I think I'm Dave, not too sure today ;)

I nearly bought an R170 V6 MOT Failer today, then the guy reneged and flogged it to someone else this morning !! :(
I was all set to give him a deposit, (un seen) and drive down Wednesday, following a call to him yesterday.

I run an Independent Garage Business, specialising in Diagnostics and all Repairs.
Can often be found hanging out in W220 Forum on Benzworld ;)

Currently own 12 Dealer Level Diagnostic machines including 2 MB SDS, plus 3 Generics and an Autel TPMS Hand Held.

Fully Equipped, but small Workshop, (do we ever have enough space).

Absolute Mercedes nut, own a few, currently finishing off a full restoration of a W220 S Class, with some cool goodies, and now looking to buy the next project, a "not too bad" fixer upper facelift R170 V6 722.6 Auto, with a view to using it next summer then next winter fitting an M113 V8 5.0 which will be spare by then as there's a Kompressor V8 sitting here for the W220 :grin

Bored ya'all enough now,

Cheers Dave
