  3. Just been looking at the French merc site they will do a coc for less than the UK office , but for UK cars they want proof re the headlamps and the speedo , not to sure as my French is not good and putting the site through a translator came out with some odd words. http://www.mercedes-benz.fr/content/france/mpc/mpc_france_website/fr/home_mpc/passengercars/home/services_accessories/homologation/Importation_vehicule_d_occasion.html
  4. Now this is getting interesting , we have always had cheap cars but now as we are getting older I have just got an SLK  (7 yr old ) as a final treat our other is a KA.
  5. [quote user="Boiling a frog"] Enquiry 4         What king of dogs do you have ,our children are frightened of big dogs. Answer            Small dogs yorkshire terriers.. [/quote] I am surprised no one has argued with you regarding "yorkies " as being  "king of dogs"[:D][;-)]
  6. I had read the link price , but as this was about the same price I paid two years ago for a previous car I thought the price must have gone up by now .[:-))] edit , in fact the form is dated 2005
  7. Does anyone know the latest fee for a coc from Drire ? I have the link to print off the application form. I tried Mercedes UK and they wanted £105 . Has no one found a site to print out a coc yet , after all it is only one A4 sheet ? (wishfull thinking [;-)]).
  8. wooly are you really married to her who wears the tabard ?
  9. Brilliant as always SD [:)] I thought I would find the answer myself by looking through previous posting , but you come up with a great site , thank you.
  10. I have been looking up previous postings on this subject , it has been well covered. I have just found this car selling site and a lot of the cars listed have their cv value. It may be useful to others as a guide. http://www.annonces-automobile.com/
  11. I can now answer my own question , no not all Mercedes have headlamps with a lever for RHD/LHD.
  12. Well I have done a deal , contacted a few dealers most said go away but a few said yes. They all only offer "Glasses guide price".So I am now back in France with a UK car to register again , thankfully this time I know the ropes thanks to SD. And a plus my French insurance said no increase for a higher group car ....UK insurance would want lots more dosh .[:)]
  13. Arrived at Boulogne this morning for a Speedferries crossing to be told canceled due to fisher men.So drove up to the tunnel and paid my £145.00 along with a lot others. Speedferries had sent me an email yesterday , but I have been out of reach until now. [:P] Just read another email from them , they are going to give me a return ticket valid for 12 months for the inconvenience as well as honoring the ticket I did not use today (not bad it was only a £10 one way ticket ) and it was not their fault .[:)]
  14. [quote user="LEO"]At the back of the headlamp on a Mercedes there is a lever/switch for RHD or LHD .Takes two minutes to excecute the change[/quote] Does this apply to all Mercedes ? I am thinking of getting an SLK.
  15. Is it time to move my money ? Is anywhere safe ?
