Pagoda Specialist near Stratford-upon-Avon UK
« on: July 14, 2019, 12:15:57 »
Hi all
Apologies if I have done this wrong, new to this technology!!!

I have my eye on a Pagoda and am looking for someone ‘in the know’ to give the car a thorough ‘once over’ so that there are no unexpected surprises.
The company selling the car is The SL Shop, so obviously I can’t use them as being an ‘independent’

Does anyone know of anyone who is an ‘expert’ in pagodas who would cover that area

Many thanks

Hi,
Welcome, You should not regret buying a Pogoda,
Does the SL shop offer a guarantee or report on the car ?
I would recommend that you look in the technical manual here on site under the content section lower down Buying a car  ithere is a lot of informatn there about what to look for. It would be worth your while to read that section and have a look at a few cars rather than buying the first one you see.
Also The Mercedes Benz Club UK, has I believe valuers or will look at a car for a fee.
There are also vendors on this site .
Good luck
Let us know how you get on.
Paul.

Jaymanek might be willing to give it a look over - you definitely ShouLd have someone do it
Jay is a member here and knows his MBs. (He is in the trade IIRC so you’d need to offer to pay for the service if he’s able to do it). He’s Nuneaton way.
I’d guess the vendor would want it done on site.

Another option might be AvanteGarde cars in Tamworth?

If you can get Roger Edwards to look at it they have the best.

I'd be happy to look over the car for you. Unfortunately i wouldn't have the time to come to Stratford during working hours but if you can get the car to me in Nuneaton, I'll be happy to check it over for a fellow enthusiast.
Many Mercedes. List is getting longer!

I think you should ask them if it's OK for Colin Ferns to come and do an inspection.
If they refuse then you have saved yourself the inspection fee!
