    Catylic Converter Removal G63

    Birmingham MSL is generally regarded as the absolute business. Presumably the Dagenham branch is also good so as to protect the MSL reputation. You could call them and tell them you’ve spent a lot and had a map done but without any dyno test - and see what they say! That should help you to judge...

    Have You Seen Any Interesting Cars On The Road Lately?

    Looks immaculate! What is it? Seems an unlikely fit for TKMaxx...

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    ...and the editorial team of most newspapers! Thanks for the link, I liked the article - ones like this are the reason I still read the BBC news website. They have been better than most news outlets at thinking wider with their analysis and quoting a range of scientists, not just the same old few.

    Merc 1000SEL? Yes 1 thousand?

    That's because it's a letter 'b' ;) Symbol British Motor Limited of Park Lane does throw up a few Google hits and seems to be also linked to a dealer called Chameleon Limited. They seemed to specialise in the type of mad 80's cars Darrell already mentioned, e.g. 6-door SELs, plus also 6-wheel...

    Nearly had a head on smash on the A505

    My local tyre shop does a lot of Porsche and AMG and the guy swears by Falkens, they are the main brand that he does. He reluctantly agreed to my request for Goodyear after a good debate about the relative merits! The Goodyear were rated quieter which was the only reason I still went for them.

    Nearly had a head on smash on the A505

    Sorry to hear but great to know no harm done. There seems to be something about the flat lands of East Anglia and lots of horrendous driving by the locals. Don’t know why they seem to have such a death wish. I worked in Norfolk at one time and our company had strict rules on which roads we...

    Fingers crossed for you this morning!

    London Congestion Charge and ULEZ to Recommence

    I had to look that one up, hadn’t even heard of it!

    London Congestion Charge and ULEZ to Recommence

    All of those must be aging a bit by now. Great that they are still in service rather than replaced with a Hilux or similar.

    E500 S212 in Silver!

    Oh - so there may actually be 2 brown ones! Quite surprising that 2 people chose that colour. Just checked my notes and the one listed for sale previously had reg PL10WBV, though that plate doesn't come up on the MOT checker or askMID now. But PL10 plates are from Preston (hence, I supposed...

    London Congestion Charge and ULEZ to Recommence

    IIRC correctly they called the above the '12 seat station wagon' at that time, so they envisaged 3 people to squeeze onto each rear bench. I recall doing this as a child. But to my mind the ultimate model was the County V8 introduced in (I think) 1982 (so not ULEZ-RFL-MOT exempt just yet...)...

    E500 S212 in Silver!

    Great spot! Seems fairly certain to be that same one, surely no one else would have bought a brown one...

    End of the road for the 747.

    It used to fly over me every evening at around 5pm when coming to land at Heathrow; I used to stop and stare every time. It was impossible to miss as the engines were incredibly loud compared to just about everything else on the flight path.

    End of the road for the 747.

    I'm going (further) OT now, but here's another plane that seems to refuse to die: How B-52 Bombers Will Fly Until the 2050s Several tries at replacing it have been and gone and it soldiers on, with a late-life refurb now on the cards for most of the fleet in the next few years. What other...

    W205 pre-facelift - switch tyre pressure units from Kpa to PSI - how?

    I'd better adjust my arithmetic to 14.5 then!

    End of the road for the 747.

    It's so impressive to see an 80+ year-old design still in active service!

    Where has this Disaster Originated?

    Yes, it's a shame, but true. I'd expected the Telegraph at least to find some positives to trumpet the government's success, given its very pro-Boris stance, but have not seen it there either (unless hidden behind their paywall).

    W205 pre-facelift - switch tyre pressure units from Kpa to PSI - how?

    I still think in PSI when inflating tyres, so my way around the in-car TPMS display showing only in Bars is to test my mental arithmetic! The TPMS reads in Bars so I multiply by 14 to get PSI. Whiles away time on long journeys...

    End of the road for the 747.

    Still, at least he wasn't sleeping off a hangover down the back of the plane, like the AF447 captain...
