    2003 E320 CDI - Extremely high spec

    Still available, relisted on e-bay due to winning bidder failing to complete (or even show up!). It closed at £3,150, so I will accept that from a forum member, otherwise I'll let the auction run, and expect it to get, or exceed that figure. It did prove very popular last time round, despite a...

    New Top Gear

    I'm not with the consensus on this one. I only just managed to sit through it yesterday, and concluded I should give up on it! The kids like it though!

    That Sinking Feeling

    When I was a Special Constable around Hackney and Shoreditch, I encountered a lot of the low life you're talking about, and the lack of respect was incredible. Basically they would abuse the Police, because they knew we were toothless when it came to kids. Basically they felt (rightly), you...

    w211 battery drain

    I have this problem, just started. I stupidly bought a new battery without first checking for a drain! Now I've got a nice new battery, after two days too flat to even unlock the doors (unless the battery or installation are faulty!

    Since post above, it's had a new turbo (remanufactured original Garrett), and a new Bosch battery. Find a better car for the money!

    New Top Gear

    Nothing miserable about being discerning! I did want to enjoy it, TG was one of my favourite shows. It was never going to be the same without JC, Hamster, and Captain Slow, but could have been great. The BBC has vast resources, the film crew are one of the best in the business, and Chris...

    New Top Gear

    Agree with lots of the above. Chris seems desperate, probably realising how crap it is, and trying to hard to compensate with over enthusiasm (shouting). I quite like LeBlanc, I have time for Evans too, but they should be themselves. The BBC should not be trying to re-create the old format...

    Personal best mpg in my 211 320CDi

    Mine often returns over 40, mixed a and b roads. It was much less economical until I replaced the thermostat.

    French on strike again

    Re the 20l jerry can. In addition to causing a problem on the Ferry, or Shuttle (at least if you disclose it), I think you'll also find it will invalidate your insurance, I believe carriage of up to 10l in properly secured 5 litre containers may be legal under DOT regulations, but 20l could be...

    S320 New Purchase, Airmatic Visit Workshop?

    I've just had airmatic issues on my W211, 2003. Mine was a front strut, and cost I guess around £500 all in. Since my car has already had the other strut, compressor, and control unit replaced, I'm now pretty relaxed about it. I guess it depends how long you're planning to keep the car, and...
