    Hi, I just have bought a 1998 SL500 and would really like to have my car properly looked after and serviced by a fellow SL fan.
    I am mechanically not the right person to get the best out of my SL so hence the plea.
    I live in Farnham, Surrey so anyone in Hampshire, Berkshire, Sussex and of course Surrey would be great.

    Happy to share my contact details and text me if you’re interested?

    MBS Southampton.
    Star near Reading.
    Two of the best independent MB specialists around and both regular posters on the forum.
    A little further away AMF (also on here).

    Sadly MBS said to me this morning that they no longer will be working on pre 2000 Mercs . That’s a real shame as they are nearby to a place I work at occasionally.

    Anyone know about the Hampshire Service Co in Hook as they aren’t far from where I live?

    STAR in Reading, Caversham actually, is the alternative for you.

    Has anyone asked Calcot Cars in Reading for their MB servicing - particually an older one?

    I think most folks on here that would go to Reading would use Star.
