    False sense of security?

    Again, point missed, the guys driving well, well in excess of the speed limit, with one hand on the wheel and having breakfast! I don't care if he was a doctor on call, the Queen's Equery or Michael Schumacker....the point is he's a f------ nutcase. Question is....why is it happening? Gottit?

    False sense of security?

    The point of my post Brian, was to point out the maniacal way the guy was driving, given he is probably a well heeled member of society, not to suggest the risk to me personally. After many years of Rally Sport I'm well able and capable of looking after myself on the road and off-road. I...

    False sense of security?

    After the other day I'm left wondering whether owning and driving a prestige car is not healthy for certain individuals. I was tootling along (70-75mph) the M18 the other day, traffic was busy, road conditions good, visability good. I was in the left lane, occasionally having to overtake...

    C Class 220cdi MANUAL?

    Apart from my wife's car, my MB is the first automatic I've ever owned, and over the years I've had about 30 or more cars, many high performers. I was always a firm believer that you had more control with a manual box, even though the constant shifting in traffic was laborious.:eek: As you get...

    One gutted girly!!

    Looking at the amount of concrete debris on your tyre, and the significant damage to the wheel rim, regardless of speed, an extraordinary level of force has been applied to your steering through kerb impact, even though it was low speed. It's that kind of force that tends to flex or bend...

    Oooh that's messy Pammy, methinks I'd be getting my tracking checked as well, looking at that level of damage! I think that one's past repair, bad bad luck !! :eek:

    Instead of handling them yourself, can you just not drop-ship them and let others do the handling?...(unless of course you're making them)??

    S320CDI Lack of power

    I was wondering whether 300,000 miles had anything to do with it, it's high even for a Merc, and compressions were low, and our comrade had been dealt a hand where all others had failed! ....if you see what I mean.:crazy:

    I am going to start up as a specialist...again

    Good luck in your venture, and may the force be with you!! :D I did it years ago when I was a young man and never regretted it. The secret to success is to treat people fairly and squarely. There will be times when you wonder why you bothered. There will be some quiet times. And eventually...

    Petrol in Diesel Car

    As Parrot and one or two others have already said, veggy oil will not harm a diesel engine, it'll probably help to save the o rings in the injector pump after petrol addition. Castrol R vegetable oil used to be used regularly in 2 stroke racing motor-bikes until latest technologies took over...

    S320CDI Lack of power

    An inlet manifold should never get dirty if air filters are present. Occasionally on a very well worn engine you may get an oily deposit owing to piston ring blow-by and crankcase compression but that's it. Certainly no major obstructive material to reduce manifold intake flow/volume. ( Unless...
