Sat in a luxurious Mercedes Service Centre (they are not called garages anymore) as my daughter’s disabled converted V-Class gets repaired, drinking coffee and eating biscuits!
The service was completed with the commensurate linked video by email, and done very well so the title is probably a tad off to be fair but it covered a whole experience of being in a Mercedes garage.
Walking around the showroom you get a sense of class and then you realise where in that class ladder you are, and to be honest your kinda glad! £38,000 base model but the model shown here is £78,000, the next model is £35,000 base model, model shown here is £55,000. It seems the base models are shit but if you want to look good your going to have to spend some extra. It goes on and and on all around the showroom. Thats the only conclusion you can come up with. The actual base model is a pile of dog crap! You get nothing. You can count luck on your side if you get the wheels that day. There is not a cold day in hell going to appear before they sell you a base model, I can guarantee it.
