Oh I'm sure there's a lovely mark up on these kinds of things as well. My other half had to buy a control module for the roof on her SL and it cost her £600 to replace, the part was nearly £500 and there's multiple units in the car.

Sadly your hands are usually fairly tied in these situations, especially with something as specialist as an SL.

Also, handy I know a couple of people who would read the fault codes for me without charge so that kinda helps. If I can avoid piling cash into the E then I'd prefer that. Not that it wants for anything that is.

Good work sourcing that second-hand module. Hopefully you get a few years out of it!

As long as I don't knacker it again with the battery booster pack, no reason why it won't last the life of the car really.

The car itself just carries on. Drives so well and does exactly what I want, still gets nearly 50mpg too.
