    Well, my experience to date.

    Dodgy reluctor rings,

    leaks from the mirror housing,

    Air con pipes going bye bye.

    And recently my intercooler pipe. (followed advice on here though and sorted within half an hour so chuffed.

    And all the info to get them sorted is well documented on here

    Not faults I've had but common ones I know about

    Brake pads delaminating

    Intercooler scoop breaking (on speed humps presumably)

    Suspension Springs breaking

    Coupe hinges corroding and paint flaking

    Brabus Alloys buckling

    Leaky driveshafts

    Wiper motor went about 3 days after I bought mine! Solution I'm afraid is to buy a new one about 92 from smart and hope you can fit it yourself cause you dont want to be paying Mercedes to take your bonnet and wing off to get to the bloody thing! Was simple when you know what to do...

    For the car I hear about going wrong more than the others, and the one generally considered (or at least I thought it was) to have the most niggles and little faults, this thread is dead
