    Blime thank you for such a fast response...
    My Brother wondered what it was as he said it was a brilliant drive and never went wrong..
    In Taiwan they dont worry about rust because its usually sooooo hot..
    Was that the model that was prone to rust ??

    They were a very good car and a shame about the rust, they really can rust so badly

    There was never a rust problem with the W210. I had one, and all I had was front wings replaced, rear wheel arches rebuilt, boot lid re-sprayed and the tops of all four doors done! No issue at all .

    (The good news, however, was it was all covered under the Mobilo rust warranty so never cost me a penny)
