    All fur and no knickers

    I was reading some reviews on Amazon the other day about a mobile phone I was thinking of buying, and one reviewer seemed particularly displeased with their new phone and wrote: “....all fur and no knickers”. WHAT? Could someone explain to me how this phrase means ‘dissatisfaction’, (I’m...

    Emm, that sounds like an idea. Celtic Tuning would give you this result:

    ML63? w164

    I’m reading the OP because I too have thought about the ML63. I remember talking to Ollie at PCS when he sold his a few years back, and one of his reasons was the price of high fuel consumption. Having said that, if you are thinking about an ML63 for your daily drive, then perhaps not, but as...

    C63 vs Sl55

    I'm probably the last to say "Welcome to the site"! I have had an SL63 R230 (6.2L) 2008 for two years and it is an amazing car, a serious missile for the road. More a Grand Tourer than a track tool, but then we are not discussing a Porsche GT3? Here are a few thoughts: The SL is a convertible...

    My wife's 'new' car.

    Are you completely sure about that? Using all the road, where safe to do so - you can see any on-coming - if fine, isn't it? Straight lining gentle bends is a good thing? :)

    AMG performance Pack

    I looked very seriously at supercharging when Acid first got the kit. He was offering attractive introductory deals. However, having driven the R231 I found the power delivery to be a bit flat. Admittedly we are talking stock power, but my R230 has one of the last MB normally aspirated engines...

    AMG performance Pack

    I Have the Performance Pack on my SL63 AMG. It had it as a factory fitted upgrade option. One of a number things that the PP brings is larger front rotors and an increase in the restricted speed from 155 mph to 186 mph, plus a modest boost in BHP. I recently had the car serviced at MB...

    New car, protecting new paintwork?

    I have just got a new car - a VW Tiguan- and I need some advice on how to keep the paintwork in top condition. My SL63 I had detailed and then I'm using Gtechniq V2 nano coating, and this works very well in protecting and helping dirt come off when washing (2 bucket method). However, I...
