COME ON GUYS NEED HELP?

This has all come about because of the s---- insurance situation in the uk. They insist on you knowing every little modification to your vehicle. Had the car 4 years didn't realise it could have mods. I have posted a thread on the 163 forum regarding my ml 320. I do not have the data card, and have found the Russian merc site with some info. My vehicle has chrome side bars, seven spoke pictor wheels with 275 tyres. I have added privicy glass. I need to know if side steps and 7 spoke wheels were an option wether factory fit or dealer fit. Very important to the insurance companies in the u.k, 50% to 100% increase in price? if not fitted in the plant?. Option code from Russian site lists 847 lateral protectoion (door steps) for cross country vehicles only). 3 seat rows (c01.10.1994). My vehicle is 7 seats. Also code 984 elimination of ownership certificate but with coc papers (co01.06.1994, WHAT IS THAT, and code 200A unknown code?. Can anyone help please. Been at this all day. Cheers. Please pm me post or email data card info if you can.

Is you VIN correct? I cannot get any data from MB servers or from the Russian site with that VIN (WDC 163154 2A 122663)?

The Russian site is not infallible - it lists my CD changer as fitted in the trunk, whereas it is in the glovebox. It also includes a couple of 'unknown codes'. I also have that code 984 which I understand is something to do with compliance in the EU. I believe your insurance company are really concerned with 'performance enhancing' modifications - but may not openly state that. OM wheels may not last the life of the car, and manufacturers cannot guarantee to supply indefinitely.

However, I guess that their quotation can only be based on their understanding of the value of the original build. If you have added, say a TV feature, why should that be included in the car value (if totalled) when you did not declare it?

Regarding the steps & the original wheels, I think that your friendly parts guy at your MB dealership can supply that information, next time you are in there buying an oil filter. It is all available on their screens.

Please stop opening new threads on the same topic. These new thoughts and questions should be continued on the original thread you started.
