    CLK W209 18in Tyres

    CLS W219 buying tips

    I'm looking to buy a CLS 320CDI, probably a 2006-7 model, maybe 08 if I stretch the budget a bit. I want something comfy to do motorway miles in and not particularly keen on the equivalent E Class. Just wondering if there's anything in particular to look out for in these? I believe...

    if your budget allows, get a Turbo or a GT3 version of the 997 or even the 996. The Metzger engine is bullet proof, if not then definitely get a Gen2 997 with the DI engine. If you do buy a car with a Porsche OEM warranty and it's not from a Porsche dealer, you should get it inspected by a...

    Best New Battery for 211 E55?

    MB batteries come with a 2 year warranty these days and they usually fit it for free. I changed mine recently and the price was comparable to a heavy duty one from the RAC.

    Those under-bumper lights in the UK?

    If you drive all the time with fog lamps on then I just think a: you're unable to operate the controls on your car properly b: if you think you need them on all the time then you're not looking at the correct piece of tarmac or you have eyesight problems. either way, it just makes me...

    Network switch

    I had two 8 port tplink switches for about a few years before I purchased the 24port one and never had a problem them. Netgear, d-link and other midrange stuff, plenty of issues with failed routers, inoperable ports, etc.
