Hello All,
I began reading forum after my wife stopped in at the local dealer and got charged $795 to replace motor mounts in her 2007 SLK 350. I found a wealth of knowledge here and have since ordered a LED kit and plan on doing other upgrades soon. Thanks for all the info!!

Greetings from Tennessee !

You've come to the right place. I wouldn't do motor mounts myself, but there are a ton of things I have done because of the info on this site (Spark plugs, idler pulley, brake pads & rotors, oil changes, air & cabin filters, hood & trunk struts, etc.) that would cost you a lot more at the Dealer. Not to mention all of the wonderful mods ! :)

Welcome to the Forum.

A warm welcome from Southern Arizona. Good to have you on board. We had a similar experience with "leaking" motor mounts at the dealership. Enjoy the people, the forum, and top down cruisin'.
