New Guy - 2 Questions?


Just bought my first merc albeit second hand, only taken 30 years but better late than never - what agreat car! But I have two simple questions;

i) To maintain the 'mercedes service history' does the car need to go to a main Merc franchise dealer for the stamp in the service manual or does any of the cheaper Mercedes 'specialists' count?
ii) Tip-tronic Gearbox. Is this any auto box that can be manually changed (electrically) through the auto box or does it refer purely to the paddle shift system on the steering wheel?

Welcome to Benzworld. Please complete your profile as this will help members give you the most accurate answer to your questions. Location is also important when we need to help you find parts etc. This forum is for introductions only and all questions should be posted on the appropriate sub forum for your car. I also note that you have not said which model the car is.
