Mercedes Pagoda



Horrendous service. Had car sent down as pre arranged, took 5 days to even get through to someone. No response to emails, telephone calls, Facebook or WhatsApp. Owner wasn’t even in the country. Chap there was unhelpful, unapologetic and rude. Wasted £200 each way on recovery. AVOID!

Stay away

Stay far away from this place - he made a transmission on my SL280 and it turns out it was replaced a SL230 gearbox. They have no clue what they are doing and its a huge mess.

Superb stainless steel exhaust installed

Wanted a stainless steel exhaust for my Ford Ranger and these guys came up trumps. Difficult trying to operate a business like this in the age of covid, but they're doing it well. Took a day to do the work, and I was sent away in a courtesy car while they completed the work, unexpected bonus.

Multiple electrical faults

I have a 1969 280SL Pagoda that required some technical work. Silchester Garage was recommended to me by several people. The work done and support offered to me was outstanding; the mechanic conducted a detailed service listing all the faults including correctional work required after other garages had failed to fix problems. I now have a car running as if new. I thoroughly recommend the Silchester team to anyone - 5 Start service!

Un like the last review,my car has under gone a complete nut bolt restoration. I can only say my mutton dressed up as lamb.makes my etype look sorry ,it to had a full nut bolt restoration valued by JD Classic at over £100000,My mutton Mercedes leaves the etype for dead,for quality of workmanship.Not done by JD Classic they only valued it.So I can only say my car looks fantastic,and most likely worth £100000.A quality car.You get what you pay for ,now days £75000 is middle of the road,a starting point to build on .If Looks could kill my car would kill. Stunning.
