"124 Works was founded with the intention of offering good old fashioned value and service for the owners of classic Mercedes W123, W124, W126, W201, W202, W210 models who share our passion. As a mechanic, and lifelong Mercedes enthusiast, Ian realised that owners of the 'classic models' have only a limited choice when it comes to servicing and maintaining their vehicles. Despite their discount offerings main dealer prices are often prohibitive and whilst they are well equipped to deal with the current range they can in some cases lack the specialist knowledge required to maintain the older cars. Due to popular demand we've now extended my services (and workshop facilities) to include work on all Mercedes models not subject to warranty cover. We are committed to customer service and satisfaction, we welcome your feedback and hope that we can offer our services to you."
