    Looking for a CLS 55 AMG, any tips?

    Road tax is €1809 a year, that’s for anything above 3 litres but after July 2008, cars here are taxed on emissions so anything that produces over 225 co2 is €2350 a year. Probably one of the biggest reasons AMG’s etc. Are so rare here.

    1000bhp?

    Hi jules. I bought it in may 2017 and had it nearly 2 years. Guy who bought it from me still has it I’m sure. Kinda regret selling it. Was it yourself that had the mapping and s/c pulley done?

    Cls55 spark plugs

    Hi guys. My cls55 is due a service and was just wondering what plugs people use when you have a modified m113k engine. I haven’t checked what plugs are already fitted, don’t know if people go colder or just stay with standard rated plugs. Car is running 585hp/620tq Smaller supercharger pulley...

    Unfortunately my SBC is knackered. Getting the red warning on the dash. Bought a used Mercedes star c3 and diagnosis is that there is an internal fault in the pump. Can these be reconditioned or do you have to buy new? Also, since the pump went, is idling kinda rough at times but haven't really...
