    E36 W210 turns over but won't start

    My W210 E36 turns over ok but won't start, I've been abroad for a few weeks so the cars been left standing, the first time I tried to start it the dash said "charge battery" so I've had it on charge for 24 hours and the battery reads 12.75v across the terminals. I've even tried using a jumper...

    Wheeler Dealers Series 10

    They made more profit out of a baggy old Escort than they did from the DB7, that made me laugh. Wish I never scrapped the green one I had....or the yellow one.....the list goes on.

    My SL60 AMG and its Restoration

    Either a Porsche air cooled engine (916 or 911) or I have seen scooby flat 6 engines put in old beetles and type 2's. The VW transaxle box is very tough. Love the SL60, every Merc I've had has been Azurite blue, the way the colour changes with the light is fab, sometimes looks purple, blue...

    Last of the summer..........

    The Merc needs a o/s lower ball joint and then at least tracking but more likely 4 wheel alignment. A coat of wax is in order too for the winter This weekend though changing the shocks on the Rangie cos it's way too bouncy.

    W210 E36 Could Be A Bargain With Only Three Hours To Go

    That's depressingly cheap for E36 210, I like the black leather interior particularly. That's how mine looks inside, the AMG clocks and steering wheel didn't appear on the 210 until the E55 came out I believe, I'll run mine until it falls apart if thats how cheap they're going for.

    New Series of Wheeler Dealers

    There must have been lots not shown on that program. If a company builds a custom fit exhaust I would think they'd need the car to custom fit it to which I think what must have happened.....they made the exhaust on the car the Ed me Ol China is filmed fitting it in his workshop. And.....why...

    Very Cheap E36 AMG W210 ???

    That's depressingly cheap for a 36, but if he's looked after the car with the same care and attention he's given that advert I suspect it'll want a few thousand spending on it.

    Could be a good one? E36amg

    That ad has been around a while, I keep an eye on E36s for sale to judge the values....this one has over 150k on the clock, lots been done in fairness but there's no need for all that waffle just puts people off.... My E36 is the same model as that and spec with 100k miles and I reckon £2500...

    BBC Four now - Carroll Shelby

    Excellent program, I liked the part about Ken Miles who'd make stupid pit stops in a race so he could get back out and overtake the Corvettes all over again.

    Cheap C140 CL500

    There's something not quite right to my mind with that second one at Station Garage. It's been for sale for over 18 months when I bought the E36

    W210 Front Subframe Change

    The engine and box can be supported from underneath with transmission jacks while the subrame is being taken off. I had mine replaced last year along with ball joints, anti roll bar and link arms etc, was charged 8 hours labour which I thought was ok as he did an MOT in that time too.

    Rare Youngtimer AMGs & Sportline steering upgrade for my 124 Coupe

    I like all three cars by the OP, the coupe looks great nice colour combo too. Nice to see the E36 knocking on the door of 200k, at least I can expect another 100k outa my motor....if the body work holds out but it's done ok in the first 100k miles so bally crossed fingers!

    Am I Mad?

I'm buying another Range Rover in a few weeks after I swore I wouldn;t have another, keeping the Merc tho for the days the Rangie won't start LOL. To coin a phrase from the Land Rover world.....One Life Live...
