Angry New Member from UK


My name is Aamir, I am from the UK living in East London! I have recently purchase my dream car which is Mercedes 320CDI Sept 05 plate. After driving a few months my dreams had turn into a nightmare. First after having a its MOT done I need to change the all four brakes disk, pads and sensor...then the mechanic had pointed out that it needed a service B, which I did...after a week of having a major work done the 'EPC unit visit workshop' error appeared on the display screen, took it back to the mechanic charged me £75 and could not find any problems suggested that the wrong fuel might have been used...which was highly unlikely....anyway drove it a couple of weeks an again the error light appear on the display screen....arrrrrh!!!

Now I am in bit of dilemma should I take it back to the same mechanic who is suppose to be a German specialist...or take it to authorized Mercedes Service center?....what should I do?

If I take it to the same mechanic probably charge me another £75 again and the problem might not be fixed.....any suggestion?

Another question....does the error of EPC have issue on the speed of the car, as it does not pick up any speed when I press the accelerator?

Please help me!!!....if you know any good Mercedes Mechanic in the East London region, please let me know!
