Looking for a B service soon - within 30/40 miles of Maidstone - maybe further if an easy run!
Recomendations appreciated
Thanks

PS Just back from Albania - it must be the MB capital of Europe!
Had a taxi ride in an E class driven by a mad driver who would give Schumacker a run for his money - I just could not believe how well it held the road, much better than my C class!!!

Seen good words on here (or maybe the other MB forum) about Steve from Maidstone and Class Cars at Wingham, just outside Canterbury. A search for indies Kent shoud find both. I have no experience of (or connection with) either - I've only had my MB since last October so have yet to require a service.

Having just had a miserable time with MB Canterbury, I wish I had never moved away from Vikings in Canterbury. They might not be an indie in every sense, but they have always been fantastic and take real care with my car.

I only moved on cost grounds, but was not worth a £70 saving for a B service

Hi,

I'm in Sevenoaks and when I got my first Merc in 2002, I was recommended by existing local Merc owners to go to Nigel Scrace in Tunbridge Wells - 07775 782792 - used him ever since.

Hth.

Regards,

Manokent , how did you get on with finding someone in near Maidstone? I have an 02 ML270 that will need servicing. I'm south of Maidstone , grateful if you could give an update on your experience.


Anyone else south of Maidstone?

I live in Medway, and made the trip down to SAM/UNIT just outside Southampton and would most definitely recommend them.
If thats too far the the Indie at Wingham near Canterbury comes well recommended.

Lisa-Jayne and I have both had ATF/filter changes (and in LJ's case, a few other bits he found) done at Class Cars Wingham, just outside Canterbury - and my C270 will be back there in a couple of months when the next service is due. I was more than happy with the service there.
If it's also MoT time, check out your local Nationwide Autocentre - £27 special offer, had the C270 done at their Ashford branch on Monday.

I have just used Class Cars at Wingham for the first time and a pleasant experience it was. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble, they dealt with the car promptly, while I went for a wander around Wingham (There is a little farm shop down the road with a cafe, they do a very nice breakfast ;) )

I will more than likely be back for the service when it is due.

I 2nd that!!

Had an outbreak of alarm-itis on my C240..phoned Steve at Class Cars (07:30!) was down there within an hour..went for brekkie at the farm shop..(very nice) and returned to find siren replaced and coded + replacement wing mirror ...all ex-stock and genuine Mercedes spares ie no go-away and come-back!

As stated previously nothing seemed too much trouble..all was explained and the bill was a pleasant surprise compared to the quotes I got from local MB dealerships. I'll be booking to have a service done there shortly.

A big thanks to Steve and his team....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
