    Mines is in for MOT, brake hoses, fluid replacement and transmission fluid change.
    I also asked them to look at obtaining a spare key (electronic not traditional). They seen to think this is no problem and have done this many times.
    My local is not a Mercedes specialist but are top guys and I just hope it comes out at least as good as it went in as I have spent the last year fixing everything that was needed bar the above and it is currently mechanically perfect.

    All being well today the last job is to swap wheels back to the 16" set again to get the 17"s refurbished.

    I remember being told once that it's because dark cars look like a pool of deep water hence they carp there to avoid giving away the fact they're in the location to predators.

    You know that does sound feasible. My neighbour to the left of me has a dark coloured car and he gets lots of poo. The neighbour the other side has a Silver car and gets hardly any. Maybe some truth in that. :rolleyes::)

    No they're his mate's cars, my detailer owns a cleaning company for offices etc, has staff is quite successful, the car detailing side is his passion/hobby and I think how he started in business, bizarrely he loves washing/detailing so still does that side himself. The owner of the Porsche/Ferrari is just a mate he met through business who he obviously gets on with really well, wish I had mates like that, goes to show it is who you know that counts!

    That is annoying to say the least, any CCTV to catch the culprit?

    Looks like it may pull out but reaches the crease which may be awkward, try chips away..

    New boots and alignment. The OE Conti's had the usual shoulders worn out, so gone for Avons this time. Had Avons on one of my W211 after OE Conti's, that outlasted them, so why not tried & tested format again.

    Gutted for you. Some people have no respect for other people's property and no honour.

    I don’t blame you. Maybe lost a finger or two.
