Just Got Here
About two weeks ago I bought my first Mercedes, a 1995 E230, to replace my Renault Vel Satis, which exploded. It's a lovely car, and I really enjoyed driving it home, but, that night, on the way down to the supermarket to stock up on alcohol and other, less urgent, things, it spat out one of its front springs.
I was slightly perturbed by this development.
However, the very nice man from the AA got me home, and a phone call to the chap who sold me the car resulted in two new springs, two new perch mounts and all the associated gubbins being welded on by my friendly neighbourhood workshop. This took a couple of days to complete, but, once it was done, the car was better than ever.
It's now decided not to respond to the infrared remote locking, but I aim to try and remedy that tomorrow by disconnecting the battery.
Wish me luck!
All the best,
