    SLK 55

    Ive had mine for about 3 years now and I just love it. (172 SLK55). It is a bit pampered and doesn't see much wet weather but when it comes out for a blast it sounds fantastic under full chat...!

    SLK 55 Tyre issue

    Thanks AMGeed, That's my opinion but when I phoned them they said I would have to buy a new one and they will send the "faulty "one away for Continental to inspect. I may or may not get my money refunded. Which is not acceptable. I will let the tyre guy look at it on Friday and take it from...

    When your cars not a daily and does hardly any miles between sevices

    If you own a garage then I would have no issue as a potential purchaser of your car in the fact you have serviced it at your garage. In fact I would expect it to be very well looked after if that was the case. I will not pay MB to touch my car.

    Brakepads on E63 AMG

    Of course if you are Lewis Hamilton then go straight for the performance ones obviously.... Im not sure the Pagid ones are likely to fail for road use, but if your tracking the car then yes money talks

    Brakepads on E63 AMG

    I would say there is no harm in trying the freebies from Halfords and then if you don't like them ,just change for something else. Got to be worth a try.

    Park on drive , or not ...

    If I were a car thief I would be looking for the easiest car to get in and get away with . If I saw one with a disklok on I would be thinking that is extra time needed to get the car away when having to unlock it. And obviously more time for the owner to phone police or get some attention from...

    Park on drive , or not ...

    On drive and get the old fashion steering lock on it (the big yellow thing, Disclok) as visual deterrent ,slow em down, put em off . Safer on drive from mindless morons who may target it for vandalism. I would dread parking such a car on the main road.
