Welcome to the most friendly forum on the 'net.

So feel free to ask about your W210 from the others here who have these cars, or have knowledge of them.
A search of the appropriate model section will help you too.

Hi all,

Big fan of the older Mercedes-Benz. In particular the W123.

Used to own an A45 AMG. Spectacular car but prefer the older stuff.
Previously owned

2014 Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG Mountain Gray

Hi Shane,
Welcome, I'll keep an eye out for you round town.
Look up Austin Jinks, he's a good guy for sorting out your Benz.

Hi all,, Eligh here, thank you for accepting my request to join the forum, I am from good old sunny Brisbane and owner of a w202 c180 and c200, these are the first euro car that I have owned and so far I'm in love despite the age of them both. The c180 has got 170k on the clock and is in stock form but drives like a dream and the c200 has been molestered previously and is sitting at a stupidly low height in the front end so will definitely be looking for some advice and possibly parts for that in the near future. Cheers again.
