i have recently bought a ML 430 as a tow car to pull my competition car and just wanted some feedback from people who use MLs as tow cars.On some sites it states the ml is safe to tow 3500kgs but in the handbook is only 2600?? my car and trailer weighs around 3000kgs:neutral: so am i going to be ok pulling it with the ML??
Paul:shock:
p.s this is what i have to tow

Personally I would stick with what the handbook says or your insurance could be null and void. You could phone MB Customer Service for confirmation of the towing limit.

The current ML is shown on the MB website as having a towing limit of 3,500kgs.
