    AMG As classics

    Exactly, so which of the AMG's of the last 10 years do you think show signs of being in a better position of going up in value again?

    AMG As classics

    I was using my past cars as examples. I did have a build thread on the M3, but can't find it. It is 70% finished.

    AMG As classics

    I have owned a couple of AMG's in the past, a C36 and C43. The C36 was a nice car and always thought about getiting another. Over the last couple of years the prices have started to increase and less becoming available. The C43 seems to be following the same pattern. My question for...

    I need to sell my C43 as i require a van for my business, so plan to sell this and buy a sprinter, so one merc to another. This car comes dent free, with a few stone chips to the front bumper. The car comes with a full service history and has recently had a service with the gearbox oil being...

    C36 amg

    I have a black 2001 C43 with almost all the options, except 1 or 2, the dipping rear mirror, if you are interested? 106k miles FSH with many Dealership stamps. The mechanic stated it's the most solid C43 he has seen with no rust. It's in black too.

    Orthopedic Pipework

    I finally got round to trying to fix the side bolster pipe that had blown off. I inserted the pipe back into the y piece. It blew off straight away. I ten used araldite, inserted the pipe and left it over night. It held up for half a day and then blew again. My next effort is to try glue and a...

    I hate driving in the UK

    What's needed is education and until there is education the roads are just going to get worse. More road rage and more accidents. The fact is folk do not know what they are doing wrong, or the fact someone behind them may be wants to go faster than they are. What i have described above, i...

    I hate driving in the UK

    I'm glad i don't spend much time on the dual carriageway and motorway road networks these days. I had a short trip from Livingston to Glasgow and back and found apart from Lorries and a couple of cars i was the only other vehicle, a van, in the nearside lane. One gantry sign stating...

    Be Warned.....

    They are only enforceable if issued by a police person or an offical traffic warden. Any issued by anyone else are not valid and would have to go to court, but would be thrown out. They would not risk taking anyone to court as they would lose, it would then be in the papers and then they would...

    Indicators do you use them or not?

    This is where the lack of awareness has come in where you are at the back of a queue and open to being hit at the rear by an also unaware driver. I and advanced drivers would have spotted the slower/stationary traffic, slowed down earlier and stop at least 20-30m from the car in front and...

    Indicators do you use them or not?

    You are correct, but if you are in the solo parked car that i have moved out to overtake say 100m away, if your indicator is not on, then you are not intending to move off so won't be moving into my path and secondly, by seeing a car in the middle of the road preparing to pass you, would you set...

    Indicators do you use them or not?

    Assessment is constant, not just at a junction etc. If there is nothing around i won't, but am always ready to indicate if something does appear that will benefit. You also have to be aware that an indicator is only really noticed after the 4th flash(some stat i remember seeing somewhere), so...
