Mercedes-Benz Classic Car forum for fourth year
The Mercedes-Benz Club of Sri Lanka with Diesel and Motor Engineering
PLC (DIMO) organized a Classic Car forum on the theme, 'A Star Today, A
Classic Tomorrow' for the fourth consecutive year. The forum mainly
focused on models manufactured from 1990-2000, which included the
E-Class W124, the S-Class W140, the first generation of SLK-Class R170
and the first generation CLK - Class C208/C209.
The objective of the forum was to create awareness and establish the
importance of Mercedes-Benz Classic cars among enthusiasts of the
three-pointed star. The Mercedes-Benz is considered the most valuable
luxury automotive brand in the world.
Hence many enthusiasts consider restoration and refurbishment of
their old Mercedes-Benz Classics as an investment and as a
self-fulfilling activity. Restoring a classic takes time, effort and
patience and has to be done by experts in the industry. DIMO is in the
forefront of providing expertise and assistance to refurbish classics.
DIMO provides customized service and maintenance packages, genuine
spare parts for old cars and discounts on parts and labour. DIMO has a
dedicated team of experienced specialists, trained by Daimler, to assist
in repair and maintenance of classics.
Presentations were made by officials of the Mercedes-Benz Club and
the Mercedes-Benz Team on the restoration of classics, while
participants too raised questions and discussed the issues faced by them
at the Dutch Burgher Union hall, Colombo 4.
