    C63 And Track Days?

    I've always thought driver training is an important consideration whatever car you choose to buy. As said above, an idiot can be dangerous in any car. Years ago I was selling one of my toys, a Caterham 7 with 275 bhp, which was an absolute beast, especially if there was the slightest hint of...

    Rogue Hauliers.

    My own company runs 4 HGVs and as part of the requirement to keep our 'O' licence, we must undertake to have each vehicle thoroughly serviced on a regular schedule. In our case that is every 6 weeks or 6000 miles, whichever is the sooner. Furthermore, roadside VOSA checks are a relatively...

    2010 VW Polo 1.2 5 door

    Selling this car on behalf of my son who has emigrated. He is only the second owner and bought the car in October 2011 at just over 1 year old. It's a very tidy car, in excellent condition, no rust or corrosion anywhere, with MOT until July 2018 and full service history. The next service light...

    Aussie Benz hater on youtube

    It's not just MB he hates. If you took notice of everything he says, there would be very few cars left that you'd want to buy! He makes a living out of moaning.

    Bloody hell

    Really? I didn't know that. Wasn't offered to me when I bought my car.

    Hot starting problem on '02 S210 E320 diesel

    A chap who works for me was telling me yesterday he has a mysterious starting problem on his '02 E320 diesel which I thought I'd post on here to see if anybody has any ideas. When cold it starts first time, every time, but in warmer weather, like now, it still starts ok when cold but as soon...

    Bloody hell

    I'm surprised in a way that MB don't offer (at a price) bespoke body colours and trim for folk who have too much money. I realise it maybe isn't so easy for volume manufacturers to divert a car from the assembly line but I'd have thought there was a market on some of the high end models for such...

    Wife's out in my E55

    Isn't it odd how one can't seem to have a bit of good natured banter on a forum these days without someone accusing you of being sexist, racist, ageist or any number of other nouns with an 'ist' on the end. If I were to show this thread to my wife, she would be quite perplexed about the...

    Don't worry, when have you ever known a political party gaining power and then keep to their manifesto? ;)

    No Service Book?

    I don't really see any problem in not having the old fashioned service book, just so long as you have copies of the service record/invoices. I file each one in the folder with the handbook on mine and the wife's MB, which goes into far more detail than a little book with a stamp. The indie I now...
