Further to this post: http://forums.mercedesclub.org.uk/showthread.php?t=107729 The car failed to start yesterday. A mobile Mercedes technician spent 1.5 hours tinkering with the electrics last night and couldn't revive the car. The dashboard lights are dead, the steering is locked on, the car will not start and will not lock. The car is being taken to Hughes of Beaconsfield (on the back of a recovery truck) to be fixed. Bear in mind this car is 6 months old and has covered less than 6k miles. Not good.
