    Hi my name is Ashley and I’m new to the forum. After years of VW ownership, I have just bought a 2003 Mercedes ML270 inspiration edition.

    So far I have found this forum to be incredible with the wealth of knowledge on here from other members sharing their experience. It really has helped me sort out some small niggly issues that I had with the car when I bought it.

    I don’t normally post in forums like I used to but this community seems so good it would be rude not to contribute.

    Front O/S tyre has now been changed. Lol. Couple of little bits to tidy up still but after going from a Golf estate we both love it!

    She’s on 141,000. The last couple of cars I’ve had I’ve sold on about 200,000 so this has plenty of life left in it. Lol.

    Yes, ATF and filter was changed last year, new high pressure fuel pump, 2 new injectors and all new injector seals. I’ve just put a new thermostat on her. That’s most of the usual issues sorted for now from what I have researched.
