    Hi

    has anyone got any views on Alliance Cars, Cardiff - they state they're an MB specialist, but I can't find any reviews on them. I understand that they acquired Kings (MB specialist), but Kings seemed to have a pretty bad reputation in the past. Any feedback would be much appreciated as my girl's car has an ABS light on (something to do with OSR speed sensor according to the OBDC reader) and seems to be having intermittent issues changing up gears. We've used Stuttgart in the past, but weren't overly impressed.

    Thanks

    Your Mercedes:
    Now a C220 CDI, Have had 4 E180's and a C240S. No longer using the wifes Volvo V70. Not Nice
    I have used them for MOT's in the past, but did find them a bit OTT.

    I seem to recall that they were more of a Jaguar specialist, but did have a pretty good merc guy as well.

    I have found Stuttgart to be better, but times change, so who knows

    Just a bit of feedback on this. First impressions are very good - work involved a one spanner service and replacement rear pads / discs on an SLK200 (2002). Also to rectify a speed sensor fault.

    Another company to check out is Redcastle Classics - they specialise in Pontons ( particularly the 190SL ) , Pagodas , Fintails and 107's but also have newer stuff like 124's and 126's in from time to time , so may be helpful .
