« on: July 28, 2020, 08:51:42 AM »

Hopefully enough spare parts outlets will remain , as an alternative to MB, for the 454.

Where did you get that 'info' from ?
A link would be useful...not just to confirm but to ensure
we get an idea as to when and to what degree.

Here is one source. I’m not that surprised. Also wouldn’t be surprised if other relatively low sellers such as Subaru, ISUZU, Suzuki follow suit.  :-X

From that article then...."suggested withdrawl from Europe"...
and..."but that they're 'still selling cars for the foreseeable future'
          and plan to continue to support customers with an ongoing
          aftersales parts and servicing offering."

So...there will still be parts available....good...if they're cheaper
than the MB offerings of the same part. Not all are...so worth checking.
