first of all sorry for starting up an old thread.
i just bought a 2007 sl, my first mercedes and my first really nice car.
took it for a service a week ago and was told there was a cracked rim.
i was a bit shocked it, I thought i was going to have to pay tops 600 euro for a service, but ended up having to pay 2500 euro for their work.....
they still have the car, as the rim is not available any more. a new rim was 361 euro. mercedes have offered 4 new ones in a design i dont really like for the price of the old, so 361 euro
for four new ones.
i dont really know if it is a good offer or not?
they want to keep all the old rims, to check them for manufacturing faults, i am thinking by saying that they are admitting to a fault and therefore should let me choose which rims i want?
