I've seen better Bro. If it's not the set of wheels which followed the car, it's most likely Chinese. That they can graft AMG into it or anything else, doesn't make it OEM. You will hardly find those here.

all my cars are white, and white doesn’t radiate heat like black sad
Ohooo!

I also love white cars,but dont you think that black looks better on this CLS?

And its first body is also black,i hope you changing it to white dosen't distort the car beauty.

Congratulations on your new whip.

im changing the color though to white!
Bro this color looks better on the car, it makes it look sleek, elegant and it's a head turner color. White though with our dusty and muddy roads. Hmm.. well what do I know?

SEEM OUR POLICE MEN RE GETTING BETER LOL
OfficialDJ:
It was 6:50 am in the morning when I called teddy that I was coming to Lagos to pick my cls up( I had paid for a thorough paint job to be meted out on the car)

I booked a flight from calabar to Lagos that same month for almost twice the normal fee! shocked

Everything went smoothly from there and I spent the night at one of those hotels in the GRA axis of ikeja.

I went down to meet up with the paint guy, and I was impressed by what I saw.

I was assigned a driver by the company to drive the car down to calabar... “Na new car be this, drive carefully “ the driver was told, but it was the complete opposite of the instructions he was meted out to that he did.

Pothole upon pothole the car entered, and I was so mad that I couldn’t shout again.

The final straw that broke the camelback was when he entered two potholes at once along sapele road, and the tyres screeched and gave up.

The passenger side tyres tore like it was riddled with bullets, and it was a bushy area.....


shocked

We heard a siren blow and a police van ordered us not to park there that hoodlums kidnapped people there...

They had to follow us to the nearest filling station, which was thankfully near an army checkpoint.


The rims had given up too at that point ( rims wey I buy 250k) cry

I was so mad I couldn’t even talk to the driver again.

The policemen came down and asked what the problem was .. they offered to bring down the tyre and sorted things for us. shocked

We had to sleep in the filling station that night for the car to be worked on the the next morning!
That particular night, without being signaled to come, 4 Warri boys helped us get new tyres and transported it to the car’s location without collecting money. I was shocked by the hospitality.

The next day, the boys again took me to where I’d get rims and everything for the car, which was beyond amazing.

I had to squeeze 3k to the supposed leader, as they refused to collect anything.

I got back to calabar yesterday afternoon, and I’m riddled with repairs worth 300k+

If you’re from delta, you guys rock! So much, as if it wasn’t for those guys, then my situation would have been lipsrsealed lipsrsealed

Your car story just calmed me down.
My car stopped working all of a sudden yesterday.
I had to leave it there,as the local mechanic I got there could not detect the fault.
I had to take my computer diagnostics guy there this morning, only for him to tell me it's the brainbox.
Omo, small money don leave account this morning so....I be dey vex before I opened Nairaland and read your story.
Thanks for sharing.... hopefully, the brainbox will arrive from Lagos tomorrow.
God no get shame us smiley

So far only one person commend police and delta boys. Suppose the story was police steal tyre of Benz traveler, una for see comments and more stories of how delta boys disturb them when they pass there 2 years ago plus how police do this or that but cause the narrative is different for once, they have turned the thread to Toyota vs Benz.

Lol baba Benz no be Nissan oh. Those cars are solid. I advise you use one before you bad mouth it and don't base your knowledge on some kazeem's verdict.

Buy a car with good history, change oil as at when due, give it what it requires and it WILL even outlast your Toyota clitoris which it most likely out performs too.

I hope you bought beer for the driver at the end of the journey. If not no matter how much you paid him. Something inside him will always refer to you as a stingy man...
