    New Year, New Me....

    Not! New Years day clean for the S and the Shogun today haha. Hard to believe I've had the S Class two years in February. Still looking pretty sharp inside and out though. Hard to believe the S is 14 years old this year. Not as old as the Shogun which hits 19 years old...

    So far despite being thirsty the Shogun is proving to be extremely reliable. I completely forgot about the MOT so had that booked in back in November. Now it's 18 years old with at the time 117k on the clock. I expected it to need something to get it through the MOT, probably rust related more...

    ML350 - Take Two!

    I hope the dark wood is a good call longevity wise. Certainly on the doors it looks more subtle than the silver strips! :) Lucky me had a day off work today so I gave the S a clean which was easy and then attacked the outside of the ML! Nice simple clean first of all with some Meguiars...

    ML350 - Take Two!

    I know, it was a constructive one! haha I did get some good help. She gets enough Kinder Eggs and 'Mingo' (Mango) Juice out of me hahaha I must admit, I was never one for big rims on 4x4s. Just kind of exaggerated their lack of off road use but I will concede these work very nicely on this...

    ML350 - Take Two!

    Since I'm working from home, I decided to use my lunch break wisely! :lol: I gave the interior a bit of a clean, it wasn't in bad shape at all but prefer to start with a clean canvas haha. My youngest daughter is like my shadow so had to help. We attacked the rubber mats we'd had in the last...

    This happened tonight

    Ouch! What a pain that is and load of hassle that you don't need. Some friends of mine lived on busy road in that there were often cars bumper to bumper down both sides. My mate had just bought an E Class and his other half had her first car which was an Astra convertible. Someone driving too...

    Mr Know it all

    Just ditch the clay and window putty entirely, just good old fire should do the trick. That'll certainly remote contaminants from the paint! I'm quite lucky with my neighbours that they don't give me advice on cleaning cars! In fact my next door neighbour is hilariously bad at washing his car...

    ML350 - Take Two!

    As some of you saw, our much loved ML350cdi which we bought last December is no more, due to a div in a lorry rear ending it. We recently received the inevitable news it was a total loss and had the offer through. With car prices being strong we were offered £200 less than we paid for it 9...

    That's it running in RWD only which is the go to option really, it's then got 4WD high and 4WD low but don't tend to use them on the road or need to should I say. This particular model is notoriously bad. I'm part of a Facebook group for them and it's a running theme that they're crap on fuel...

    Well it's not too sh!t but it's not the most refined. It's faster down hill that's for sure but quite tidy for it's age. Yeah it's shocking on fuel, there's me thinking it might hit early 30s but early 20s on the MPG front. I have a couple of things in mind, one being a remap. Power would come...

    Some Merc and non-Merc Cleaning

    The Dr Leather spray works really on genuine leather and the Artico type too. It’s literally a cleaner so leaves it factory matt rather than too shiny. I use the Glyptone products on leather with a broken surface as it should keep the area a bit more supple and soak in where the surface is...

    Mitsubishi Content - I'm not a defector, promise!

    Haha Greta definitely would not approve. I'm staggered at how amazingly bad on fuel it is. As in it's comparable to my CLS63, which for a diesel is mental. If I'd bought this as a my only car and as a runabout, you'd be annoyed. Even on a motorway run at 60 it'll do at best 30mpg, if you're...

    Mitsubishi Content - I'm not a defector, promise!

    Some of you may have seen that I put up a thread asking about green laning a while back and received some great responses. I decided against an ML and ended up with something which is very capable off road and somewhat unrefined on the road but I absolutely love. It's a Mitsubishi Shogun...

    Some Merc and non-Merc Cleaning

    I haven't posted in here in a while, nothing too spectacular to report but gave the S a clean at the weekend. It's not done much driving since acquiring another car plus been using my other half's courtesy car and putting the miles on that since it goes back in a week! :) I've been using this...
