Exclamation IMPORTANT......PEACHPARTS DOMAIN NAME CHANGE.....ALL MEMBERS READ!!

"www.Mercedesshop.com" has a new domain name: "www.peachparts.com". The change was made by the Webmaster to avoid an ongoing dispute with Daimler AG.

Please contact people to let them know of this change. We are using 301 redirects, but still we don't want to lose any members.

This forum has been around for 10 years, we will get through this and come out stronger on the other side. Nothing other than the name has changed!!!

Nice work getting everything back up and running. Much appreciated

peachparts.com, I think I'm used to it already.

I've been cheated out of a 10 year anniversary

Anybody know the mailing address for DaimlerAG? I want to send them a "thank you" card.

As long as I can still get parts from Fastlane and chat with all my friends, I don't care what it's called.

Sorry you're having to deal with all this Bill.

Thanks guys. It is a true PITA but what can I say?
At least the forum is up an running and it looks like nothing was lost.
AllPartsExpress is working but Fastlane is not yet.
Several web pages still need minor fixes.

I've still got a lot to do...

This probably explains why earlier today I kept getting Google with some MBZ stuff on it rather than the site. Question: Will mercedesshop.com on my favorites automatically connect to peachparts?

Only for a while.
You really need to update your favorites to peachparts.com.

Who was it that had those MercedesShop.com badges made up a few months back?

I want to get one of those before the MercedesBrandPolice come acallin'!

Can someone PM me with that member's name?

Thanks!

BTW: Does that mean that my '77 Mercedes 280E has to be referred to as a '77 Peach CCLXXX Echo?
