    Will a 202 interiour fit in a 201????

    The W202 chassis was evolved from the W201. They do not share many common parts. Steering box is not interchangeable. Although the design is very similar. Some rear control arms are, but they are also interchangeable with a wide variety of later mercs. The W201 was the pioneer for the multi...

    Diamond cut wheels - Refurb possible?

    It was just a general statement and wasn't to include every wheel, situation and company. I agree that 2mm is excessive but a lot of firms do take off a huge amount just because they are pushed for time and/or the operator isn't as skilled as he could be. Unfortunately for the consumer...

    Where to get a Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich?

    http:// The Rockstone in Southampton. Named "uncle Phil" on their menu and at £13.95 wasn't sure if that was good or not but it was massive and cooked to perfection...

    Real World Ownership of a W220

    Long overdue update. Car is in winter mode. 17" W221 wheels and Pirelli winter tyres. I put them on quite a while ago before the short cold snap came. The car has noticeable tyre noise compared to the wider, lower profile 18" Continental summer tyres. Surprising to go from old, very worn tyres...

    New Merc Tesla rival and GT4?

    Up until recently Daimler held a stake in Tesla and were technical partners. Underneath the Tesla you will find suspension very similar to the E class. Inside the Tesla you will find all Mercedes switchgear. It seemed that MB were contributing all the 'traditional' car components and Tesla the...

    Anyone got BOSE Solo or equivalent?

    Very surprising. We have a Denon UD-M50 in the kitchen and UD-M30 in the office and both have been excellent for well over 10 years. I've always held high regard for Denon.

    R Class --- should I buy one ?

    The 2 captain style middle seats are the best bit of the R class for me. Not the most practical, but nice to be a passenger in one of those.

    Bought an R129 unseen - a Cautionary Tale...

    Let's be honest...buying a 20+ year old V8 convertible Mercedes unseen was never a good idea. Heart ruling head at some point i'm guessing? Anyway, what's done is done, just have to move on and try and make the best of a very bad situation. Good luck. I remember seeing the car on ebay...

    R Class --- should I buy one ?

    S211 is better in almost every way. My mother has a R320L cdi and has had for several years. Hers has been pretty reliable on the whole. Airmatic compressor, 1 rear strut, glow plugs and then consumables and servicing for the last few years. As stated, it eats brakes and tyres. It's just not...

    The New E55k Estate

    This thread is a good reality check for the forum. Nearly every 10 year old+ car will be like this one in my experience. Whether it's bought from a dealer or a private individual, 9 times out of 10 there will be a list as long as your arm of things that could be improved or things that need to...
