Hi Syd,<p>Thanks for the response. I did check with my dealer and he told me that C class Mercedes (like 3 Series BMWs) for Australian delivery all come from South Africa. Apparently the W202 had springs made of Aussie BHP steel. But he didn't know that there were UK built C class Mercedes.<p>My other vehicle is a Land Rover. At the moment, it's holding up well, although there were some early glitches, but since I was mentally prepared for the LR to be less than perfect, it was OK. I definitely wasn't prepared for the Merc to be anything but 100% perfect.<p>Still I think it'll all turn out well when I get it back next week from the body and paint shop.<p>Lawrance<br>
