    E-Class number plate for sale: M8 ECL

    After almost 11 years of fantastic service, I have sold my beautiful E220 Avantgarde Estate to a good home. I won't be needing another large car, so I will be selling the matching vehicle registration number, probably to a Mercedes enthusiast or dealer. In case it's not obvious, M8 ECL closely...

    Isn't the W210 better looking than the W211and latest E-class?

    I have to vote for the flowing lines of the 211 (pre-facelift) as the most beautiful Merc estate, but MB were losing sales to BMW so they had to make the new model much more masculine-looking. :mad:

    Very proud - GCSE results

    This thread has just reminded me that I owe some money to my youngest son. For his GCSEs, I promised him £50 for each A*, £30 for each A and £10 for each B, as I recall. His results today were seven A*s, two and a half As and one B. (The half was for a short course.) :bannana: So, that's...

    PCN - is there a time limit?

    My memory has been jogged sufficiently that I do now recall turning right at the junction identified on the PCN. The road layout has changed since the previous time I was there (it used to be a mini-roundabout) and a friend says that it's definitely signed no right turn now. I would normally...

    PCN - is there a time limit?

    I contacted Harrow Council's Parking Enforcement Department. If I want to see the video, I have to go there in person. However, they did send me three images by e-mail, the first of which shows the alleged contravention: The second image shows my car driving away five seconds later. The...

    PCN - is there a time limit?

    Strangely, the PCN doesn't require me to state who the driver was, if it wasn't me. I guess it's like a parking ticket: they just want the money.

    PCN - is there a time limit?

    ^^^ Not really! (The picture was taken from the CCTV footage, so it's not that clear.) It only shows the rear of my car with the registration. I will find out if they will release the video. I believe some local autrhorities send a link that can be accessed on-line.

    PCN - is there a time limit?

    Thanks, but I'm pretty sure it's my car: the rear tyre tread pattern matches! (Also, my car was recently de-badged plus it has an obvious and memorable registration, which I imagine most cloners would avoid.) :D

    Because the time limit for issuing an NIP had expired??

    PCN - is there a time limit?

    So, it's 28 days (normally). I suppose I should be grateful it was a PCN and not an NIP. :rolleyes:

    PCN - is there a time limit?

    I received a PCN from Harrow Council today, 21 days after the alleged offence. It was for PERFORMING A PROHIBITED TURN - NO RIGHT TURN at 10.59 AM on 28 July 2010. There is a photo of my car supplied, although it doesn't show the street, the turn or the sign. They claim to have CCTV evidence...

    Advise on buying a E-Class Estate circa 2005?

    June 2006, I believe, although some pre-facelift stock may have been around for a few months after. You should be able to tell from the engine specification or the front grille/bumper. I have an S211 from January 2006 and it's been no problem at all. It was a high miler but still in warranty...

    Changing ISP

    I also have several old Tiscali and LineOne e-mail addresses, even though I'm with another ISP now. The trick may be to ask TalkTalk to move your e-mail address to a PAYG dial up service so you can keep your e-mail after moving ISP. Then you just access your e-mail account for free through an...

    There are just two left at the DVLA for £499 all in: Y700 AMG and Y800 AMG. Others are at least double that. I've just found BO53 AMG for £250 on the DVLA web site. It almost says BOSS AMG. Bargain!

You can search for RAL and see if you like anything. The earliest available £250 registrations are J--- RAL. There's also a two-digit registration left...
