    Hello all,

    I am new to Mercedes-Benz ownership (2003 SL500) and wondering why I waited so long. I'd appreciate recommendations for service in Newcastle area. I have seen a number of posts recommending Staithes Garage, but they all seem a few years old. Does anyone have more recent experiences with either Staithes or M-B Newcastle?

    With thanks,

    TS

    Stan's Garage in South Shields would be worth a chat with.

    Highly experienced with all things Mercedes, including the running of his own supercharged S63.

    Welcome Ted, with an SL500 and ABC components you’d be well advised to seek out specialists who are familiar. I’m not sure on Staithes but depending on your location there are:-
    Merk Solutions in Cramlington 01670 735212
    Mistletoe Jesmond 0191 281 1551
    Prestige Stockton on Tees 01642 669100
    I’d ring around to get a feel for the expertise and response
    What age/colour/etc is your SL? Some pics if possible...

    Thanks! SL500 is 2003 model, a few pics attached (before a serious road salt removal exercise later this week, after driving her back from London)

    I could not agree more, and it seems your car is just one year removed from mine. All best, TS

    Hi and welcome.
    They are indeed superb cars (even though I prefer the previous model!).
    My SL500 is just one year before yours, and my 500SL is 10 years before!

    Not a great shot. Taken just before she was put away for the winter.
