    C270 Nothing working... nothing!

    Hi gang, Just a quick one, I've driven to work as normal in my 270CDI and as usual everything was normal, car turns over nice and fast in the mornings so nothing that has been even slightly odd. I spent 3 hours at work then came out to leave and I couldn't unlock car with remote key, I checked...

    Xenon dipped beam issue...

    I thought he said he'd physically fitted them but turns out he hadn't, when I posted above I'd left a £50 deposit for the car and returned the next day to pay the rest and take the car, after chatting to him again it turned out he didn't actually fit the bulbs but bought them in readiness I...

    Xenon dipped beam issue...

    Well stone the crows..... So a supposedly reputable local garage (just a regular garage not Merc specialist) had told the previous owner of the car that the Diagnostics revealed the car required two complete new headlights... Well I think not, I fitted the two HID Osram bulbs that the owner had...

    Xenon dipped beam issue...

    Hi all, it's been nearly a year since I was last on here when I sold my beloved CLK 320 CDI Sport as I needed a bigger / more practical car. Long story short the SUV I bought just wasn't for me and now I'm back in the fold with a C270 CDI Estate (2004). It has the Xenon headlights factory fitted...

    Lorrys overtaking each other on Dual Carriageways

    I haven't read all the debate on this post so not sure how the arguing is going LOL.... There is one exception when the two lorries are stuck side by side..... If I'm the car directly behind the lorry over taking, when he final gets past I have miles of clear road ahead for a rightfully good...

    2002 C220 CDi trailing arm Help please :(

    I would imagine it would be one of these rear lower arm (forward), see link below. If I remember correctly it is a squeeze to undo the mount bolt at the chassis end. Probably best to get under your car and look to see if your current one is noticeably perished to give you a better idea if this...

    Rare Tenorite Grey CLK 320 CDI Sport - 2009 low mileage

    I have come to the reality that as a second car the CLK is just not being used enough to warrant keeping and the onset of a home improvement project the money is better spent elsewhere. I have owned CLK's previously but this one was "the one" that I waited months on end to appear for sale and I...

    How your car is perceived?

    Well since changing from a CLK 270 CDI to my current CLK 320CDI Sport I have had a few "hoon ups". No one paid any attention to the old 270 but now I get the occasional comment while fuelling etc. I guy (in his 40's) who was filling up his van behind me came over and said how nice the car...

    Planned your 2017 road trip(s)yet?

    My friend is moving to Inverness shortly so I'll be doing a trip from the South West. I would love to do Le Mans again as I haven't been since 2004 but used to go every year up until then. The drive over from the Chunnel was amazing and always aimed to book the same train crossing as Ferrari UK...

    Who's done a total career change?

    I just couldn't see me spending my days living so close to London, the town was becoming over populated, the cost to live / buy a house was out of reach. It was make or break, seaside was calling us and boy did we make the right choice, yes we struggled by taking whatever job we could at first...

    Clk 270cdi new springs to fit front&rear

    Rear springs are a simple swap out as once the car is raised in the air the springs are no longer under any load, simply unbolt the outer lower control arm bolt, bottom damper bolt and then pull the old spring out and replace. The front however are in a strut assembly, easy enough to get the...
