    For caravanners' eyes only - we're getting a new one!!

    Following on from my last post about caravan insurance renewal. It was quite painless. I did think of doing a simple renewal with caravan guard but as usual the premium went up from last year, then shopped around a bit. Renewal price came in at £261 for market value, up £45 from last year. Took...

    2005/55 Mercedes CLS55 AMG 5.5 V8 Supercharged. NEW MOT. FANTASTIC CONDITION!

    Will be back up for sale again soon as I bought another 911 and haven't used this much since last year. Seems a waste just cleaning it and looking at it on the driveway with occasional use.

    For caravanners' eyes only - we're getting a new one!!

    I seem to recall seeing on the news the outcome of the weather there last week. Looked pretty grim. Can't comment on some owners not moving them in time (we live in a slight hill) but a good result for you with some new orders.

    E Class Convertible - What's it like living with one?

    I'll get some pictures up at some point when I get in the right scenery. It's a lovely car and good on fuel with great performance. It could do with a rear camera and DAB radio as my wife is used to those features. Forget to mention that we bought this back in January when it was -8 that...

    For caravanners' eyes only - we're getting a new one!!

    I've not been about for a while for one reason or another. Had our wobble box booked in for a service with the caravan guy for 16th Feb. He couldn't make it due to his own car having a problem. Rebooked in for the 27th with no show and no replies made to calls and messages, which was a real pain...

    That's a good price but what register does it go on as I've not heard of that before?

    E Class Convertible - What's it like living with one?

    Reference the corrosion on the underneath. It seems like a hit and miss thing that some will be ok, while others won't. I know from a few years back my last SLK suffered from it and Merc wouldn't have it despite having full Merc services from new. Other people were lucky with Merc changing...

    For caravanners' eyes only - we're getting a new one!!

    I've got ours booked in for the fridge freezer repair and a service. I'll keep an eye on what they do and maybe do it myself next time. £250 for the service and £185 for the fridge freezer repair. Probably not the cheapest but he appears to have a good reputation.

    Will miss Guenther's wit on race weekends but can see why they need to make changes at the top. Let's hope it's for the best and lets hope Merc make a decent car and not another donkey :cool:

    Do we still have engine snobbery?

    There's always going to be some melt ready to pi55 on someone's chips about one thing or another. Just enjoy what you have :cool:

    E Class Convertible - What's it like living with one?

    Thanks for your replies :cool: It seems the petrol versions are in short supply with plenty of dervs about. Ideally for the miles it'll do a petrol would be better but hey ho as pretty sure I'll be able to put some miles on it instead of one of the other cars. Seems to be that quite a few of...

    Battery Problems

    From memory the rear Sam can be alike a duck pond if water finds it way into the rear of the car.

    E Class Convertible - What's it like living with one?

    I'm looking at these (2010? onwards) and wondering if they'll work for me. As much as I like the CLK (which just sadly seem outdated and the latter petrol models hit with the stupid high tax of nr on £700 per year). I've usually had a CLK convertible every year since the 209's have been about...

    For caravanners' eyes only - we're getting a new one!!

    Thanks for your quick reply. I didn't get that one but will probably pick up a spare at some stage but not seen them for that price locally to me. I thought I'd have a quick go an altering my existing one to see if I could get any more water out the system. The last time I used the van I...

    For caravanners' eyes only - we're getting a new one!!

    I'm looking to get a spare inlet hose. This is the current one if you can see it in the picture in the sink. Would this be a direct replacement for it...

    CLS55 M113K mpg results from recent trip

    26.9mpg is pretty good. The most I've had out of mine on a run is 29 (brim to brim) and despite trying a few times (for a little while) I could never get to 30. I start of been sensible then the flow of traffic changes my mind 😇 Around town I'm averaging 18mpg (think lead foot too) which I'm...

    F1 2023

    Sprint race to start soon. Ref the up to 1m fine - I wonder if they'd have the brass neck to hand it out and if anyone would pay it? I suppose someone has the pay for the evening do's for the FIA lot.
