    YOUR FIRST CAR

    1987 VW Polo 1.0l. Replaced the shocks and bushes very soon after getting it. Handled like it was on rails. Still got it, but it's SORNed as it's in need of a full restoration (and new shocks and bushes), which it will be getting! Edit: Goodness me, this car is 30 years old this year!

    Odd Request ('78 350SL)

    I'm in discussion (amicable) with an exhast manufacturer regarding an exhaust supplied for my 1978 350SL. The old Bosal exhaust on the car was LOUD as it was pretty knackered. The one they've supplied isn't much quieter. To show this, I made a video comparing their exhaust to the wide bore...

    Do you wash your own car or not

    I used to hand-wash only. Power wash first, then hand wash (warm water with a capful of Mer in the bucket), power rinse, then shammy dry. Polish/wax as required. I got lazy for a while and used the local "hand car wash" places but was very put off by the fact the car would rock to one side with...

    Dealers, test Drives and general pushiness.

    I had a rubbish experience at a Honda dealership around about the time the S2000 was mid-life. Drove up in the 350SL, walked in, asked to arrange a test drive in the S2000. He looked me up and down and said in a dismissive tone "we'll see about that, sir" then walked away from me back to his...

    Mercedes Customer Service Fail

    That's ridiculous. They should have made this a priority to repair, or to be honest, replace. Does the Sale of Goods Act apply here?

    off to the beige side

    I have an LS430 and there are some parallels here. :) -Memory seats can't be adjusted when driving. I figure this is in case you have a preset set to something stupid and accidentally press the button while driving, therefore putting the seat in a daft position and causing a distraction to your...
