Hi everyone,

New member here - Andrew and I live in Hmapshire way. I've decided to take the plunge and go for a R171 55 AMG. I currently drive an Alfa 3.2 GTV, but always wanting more power...!

I am looking at a 2006 car on Thursday this week in Kent. Good spec, low miles etc. I obviously would like it checked out, but do not want to employ the AA /RAC retards who know nothing about these cars.

Can anyone recommend a specialist that is willing to check one of these out for me? South London / Kent way?

Any ideas would be cracking.

Cheers, andrew

Please update your location and vehicle (model and year,ie 2007 SLK 350)(Put Looking) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘personal garage’.



Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.

Hi Andrew, and welcome from the UK Midlands... I can't make any recommendation re inspections, but I can say that I think the R171 SLK55 AMG is a great choice of car! I've only had mine for a few weeks, and I'm absolutely loving it! :)

Greetings from Tennessee !

You are right in wanting an inspection. Get someone with an SDS system and have them print out all the codes and provide you with a summary. Depending upon your financial standing you may want to consider a warranty.

Welcome to the Forum.
