  • THE SL SHOP RELOCATES

     

    “We have been bursting at the seams for some time now” said Sam Bailey, SL Shop Founder “The SL Shop is now 10 years old.  We have a respected brand, a wonderful network of great customers and a team of really talented individuals.  The timing is right to move the business to the next level.”

     

    The new Stratford location is a short drive from The SL Shop’s previous home of Inkberrow, Worcestershire.  With double the floor space, Sam sees opportunities for the business and is excited to start the next chapter.

  • One job that could make all the difference

    We do a lot of work on the 107SL, but the one job that really does make a huge difference to the way an SL drives and handles is the replacement of the subframe bushes and engine mounts.

    Over time, these can wear, which greatly effects the road holding on the SL.

    Replacing the bushes and mounts will firm up the ride of the car, and leave your SL feeling the way it did when it left the factory all those years ago.

    The whole job will cost around £900, which isn't a huge amount to pay to transform the handling of your pride and joy... But don't take our word for it, below is the transcript from an email exchange with a very happy customer.

    If you think your car could do with the subframe bushes and engine mounts replacing, give us a call to arrange a booking.
