I just bought a 1985 123 280e and I'm faced with an unexpected problem.
I bought the car intending it to be a cheap (it cost £450) car for my
everyday use (which is not heavy as I work from home). It's got 12
months MOT and is in really good shape. I knew it had service history
when I bought it but that has given me a dilemma. Getting it home I
find it was serviced according to the MB book until 113,000 in 1998. It
has done 3,000 more miles and had about £2,000 spent on it in 98/99,
apparently stored ever since (I got it with 98 tax disc on). So, I
could easily just take up servicing at MB garages where it left off,
but this seems like a lot to spend on a car that cost so little and
that I exepcted to maintain myself.
Should I DIY or should I maintain service history? Any thoughts anyone?
It's my first MB, by the way, and I love it
