Hi everyone,

I have a LHD CDi 400 and I am looking for a good garage that is comfortable working on G Wagens.  

I had a fault on the windscreen wiper and it has cost 650 pounds just to have the dash board removed to gain access.  A lot of the local guys are spooked by G wagen, so anyone who has had good service in the Colchester Maldon area would be appreciated.

I also have to problems with rust on the underside, so when I have had all the dodgy pipes replaced I would like to have some corrosion treatment and prevention.

Any recommendations for this servise would also be appreciated.

Cheers

Richard

Re: Recommended Garage in Essex

I know exactly what you mean about garages these days. They really don't like anything that will hold them up. Partly because at £60 an hr, the customer cost gets embarrassingly high. The worst is when they ring and give up and leave you half sorted.   I find that MB Indies are good enough and often better than dealers with anything deeper than plugging in STAR.

Anyway, a little digging on Google turned up the following:

ALEX CROW - Independent MERCEDES-BENZ Specialist, Stowmarket. Alex Crow / 01449 258185

www.allklasseautos.co.uk based in Bishops Stortford

Bird and Sons of colchester 01206 792 295

Obviously, search here as well...

Thanks JD, much appreciated.

Apparentrly, they are still struggling to get the dashboard out, because it is LHD?

Well call your mates in Germany? 

They have had the car 9 days now, to fix a windscreen wiper, which they still have not ebven reached!!!

Re: Recommended Garage in Essex

Worth linking to a similar thread in G Register --- mostly the same folks on both.  Last garage listed in Surrey.  Nothing in Essex/Colchester though.

Do let us know here how you get on.
