    Morning all, after a little bit of advice on the price of some repairs.

    Just had the sl350 in the garage for a niggly rattle. whilst on the ramps the mechy noted that the rear shocks are weeping.
    not abc, just normal shockers, the price to repair these is 300 each plus vat.
    also a concentric rose bush???? at about 65/70 pounds plus vat

    All parts are genuine mb

    There is no mb stealer or indy near me. /this guy has always dealt with lexus,bm,audi,mb,masserati,porsche etc.... I know his work history, so i have no doubt in his work.

    Do these prices seem about right to you? any info/comments greatly received.

    Thanks

    Nick

    seems a fair price for that work Nick, maybe a tiny bit higher as it will take him a bit longer to do the work over a Merc indy but not bad.

    not sure how close you are to Lincoln but there is a Merc indy just off the ring road, S & P Garages Ltd. they do Mercedes comercial stuff, HGV's and alike but do work on cars as well.

    I think I paid £750 for 2 shocks plus service on my wife's R230 350 SL for Mercedes Hamilton

    It is the work to get to the top fixing that takes time.

    That's a good price. I rang Benz of Doncaster. They quoted 263 plus vat each. Supply only.
