You may have 4matic that can be checked by your VIN number. The 320cdi 210 cars with 4matic are the 210.082 or 210.282 if your car number is not one of those then you do not have that

Once again you have both out thanks Malcolm checked the VIN WDB210.0262B423966 so it looks like i can go for the parts listed never got much info about the motor when i got her took the chance just used my mech skills for faults got her cheaper that way.

No, I think you are right. 4WD variant was not sold in the UK as far as I know?

Thanks Roofless,
Had a look at the GFS site could not find any parts for my motor is euro car parts the only one. Lower Ball joint £18.00 sounds really cheap a bit concerned if cheap how long they will last.

Regards

i've mostly found Europarts to be pretty good for parts, only one issue to report, i bought some drop links for the van, fitted them, went about 2 miles down the road, and one snapped in half, Europarts gave me a refund, no quibbling, it was just one of those things, nothing else has let me down,

This is NOT a dig at motor factors, but ...

I have heard horror stories about cheap suspension/steering components and I would urge on the side of caution and ensure you are buying a quality brand when buying at discount.

I bought Bremi rotor arm and cap less than 2 years ago and have had to replace the rotor arm already with a genuine MB part, having had to wait, stranded at roadside, for the thing to cool off before I could get home!

I am keen to save cash as my enonomy is really in the doldrums at present. Having said that, we tend to use our Renault 5 if the 300ce is suffering in any way. When the cash becomes available, I try to but decent parts.

Just my 2 cents' worth.

When using Euro's and offered two different prices I always go for the more expensive item, as the majority of the time it will be OEM.
