@  David_18 : (05 March 2015 - 06:41 PM) It is a location for 45 months, so if it not reliable i will not be stock with it.
@  David_18 : (05 March 2015 - 06:40 PM) I am here ! :P It is maybe a cheap Merc but i have it for 2 months now and i love it. 4Matic work great in the snow !
@  Mike T : (05 March 2015 - 02:09 PM) It is the car that moved Mercedes into the bottom few Marques for reliability (though none of their cars are reliable, really).
@  Francesco : (05 March 2015 - 01:50 PM) LOL at least it'll start.
@  Mike T : (05 March 2015 - 01:03 PM) And bought a CLA, out of the frying pan, into the Fire!
@  Francesco : (05 March 2015 - 11:40 AM) David is selling his smart!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (03 March 2015 - 12:46 PM) It should probably be wiki-fied too, when someone has an opportunity.
@  Mike T : (03 March 2015 - 12:25 PM) I just pinned it because it is excellent. I should do this for the two headlamp circuits too.

@  Mike T : (25 February 2015 - 10:12 PM) All you need is a good thermostat which seems to be a crap shoot.

Has anyone checked out the BRABUS black wheel bolt caps that are shown on the German smart configurator? Might be the ticket for those with black wheels, and the BRABUS wheels, anyway.

I love how the US price has an extra $10 profit margin!

At that price I'll stick with my plastic furniture leg tips.

Just did a currency conversion and the American ones are more expensive but only 5 when converted into uk, this could come from the fact the US suppliers doesn't have a proper amount of discount from his local merc dealer, another side note, the eBay ones *could* be fakes, and again with the ones from Germany the price could come frm the fact they have a good relationship with their local merc dealer....Besides that $10 extra isn't bad considering if you want some they have to hire an aeroplane to bring your 12 covers from Germany, which last time I checked was more than $10! ;-p
