    Really nice W124 320CE

    Incorrect Sportline was available on Coupe, saloon, estate and cabriolet. What did differ was the fact that you could not get Sportline seats in the cabriolet and coupe.

    Rare W124 Sportline Steering Wheel

    Sorry but OEM means original equipment manufacture - I am fully aware that Mercedes offered the Sportline wheel on the W124. If someone has taken a Sportline Wheel off a W124 and then remade it to look like a Brabus item then it is not original. As it stands AFAIK the wheel pictured was never...

    Rare W124 Sportline Steering Wheel

    Pretty sure these are not OEM Mercedes kit. I have most of the original sales brochures and price lists for W124 Sportline Coupe and Convertible and there is nothing like this mentioned.

    W124 Convertible in red

    Seller says the car is E320 Sport but the car is not a Sportline as the suspension is way too high. The manual gearbox on these cars was not popular for a reason. You still have the fly off handbrake operated by the pull handle in the drivers footwell. Hill starts are a nightmare. From what I...

    w124 e36 estate on ebay spares repairs

    Sorry but other than being rare what other facet does the car have of the examples I mentioned.? None. Rightly or wrongly what you describe as a "fair" value just does not make financial sense unless you are restoring this car as a labour of love.

    w124 e36 estate on ebay spares repairs

    Whilst it might be rare (one of 7) that does not make it valuable now or likely to appreciate lots in the future. Rare is just a small facet of many that make a car desireable. Others are history, racing pedigree, famous associations, style/era qualities etc etc. An AMG W124 E36 has none of...

    Heartbleed...

    The test fails on all the sites I tried with an error indication "Uh-oh something went wrong" which tells you nothing. So much for your clear easy to use explanation:rolleyes:. Glad to see you are using the Qualsys tool which provides a much better analysis but does take longer. This tool has...

    Heartbleed...

    This is rubbish - looks to me like some test software written by a freelancer. God knows what it does. It might even be spyware/virus. The best test I have used is the Qualsys test which produces a much better analysis.

    green mould on soft top....Help!!!

    I would only use the Renovo recolour paint if absolutely necessary. I have just cleaned my 1996 W124 E320 cabriolet roof which is black and the roof has come up like new with no need to recolour. I did some research on the Renovo recolouring paint and whilst there are lots of happy customers...

    green mould on soft top....Help!!!

    Renovo Soft Top Cleaner (canvas version) will remove it. It might take two or three applications/washes. For stubborn mildew leave the Renovo cleaner on the roof for 60 mins before you scrub with a sponge or soft bristle brush. Rinse thoroughly - dry thoroughly and then apply the Renovo Ultra...

    Cyclist fatalities

    Today's incidents of note on my drive into and out of London: - at Vauxhall cross this morning a cyclist decided to punch the passenger door of a truck who had dared to move back into the correct lane (lane 2 in this case). I observed the truck do this and in no way did he cut the cyclist up as...

    Cyclist fatalities

    This is actually what I have observed in that when talking to cyclists about incidents (we have several cyclists in the company) they never seem to accept any responsibility for the fact that it might have been their fault. It is always the car driver, bus driver, HGV driver, motorcyclist or...

    Cyclist fatalities

    I drive into and out of London every day and have done for the last 15 years. Cycling in London has expanded dramatically in London over the last 3 years since the Boris introduced the Barclays cycling scheme on 30th July 2010 and the introduction of the blue Barclays cycle lanes. Prior to this...

    Santander 123 account

    The Santander Internet Banking facility is not the greatest offering out there. They offer a web based service which you can access from pc/tablet etc. It works (after a fashion) but gives you very limited information in terms of payment status. In particular it does not tell you anything about...
