    S320CDi Turbo Kaput. Will it cause damage?

    How do you describe someone who drives an S class? They're not all company directors on 100K a year. I should not be driving an S class. I think a Vauxhall Vectra or a Ford Mondeo would suit my means more. I don't have the money to throw at any repair. I don't want to damage it further by...

    S320CDi Turbo Kaput. Will it cause damage?

    HI. the turbo in my 2002 W220 gave up the ghost the other day. When I put my foot down it accelerated well as normal, then there was a splutter and a cloud of grey/brown (not black) smoke out the back and now it's not working. I still drives ok. The lack of turbo is noticeable but the engine...

    Frozen S

    I've never known a car to get frozen up like this one. I don't know why but as soon as it gets frosty all my windows and roof are frozen solid and I cannot open them. When it's cold I like to drive with the window open for a bit until the engine warms up so my breath doesn't steam up the...

    My new ride...

    I've never owned a brand new car. It looks nice. Does that whole strip on the boot light up when you brake?

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    I don't think they have learnt anything but I shall never buy from them again so I'll never know :) I won't be contacting the Tribune again. It is a pity really but I just want to put it all behind me now and look forward. It's nice to be looking through my star again as I drive.

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    Unfortunately that is beyond my control. There is only a limited time to edit posts. :)

    S320 - 2000 Model, to buy or not to buy. What do you say ???

    What colour is it? Does it not have COMAND? I think the S have terrific road presence. You don't need to drive it fast to get a buzz.

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    I was thinking of going to MB World shortly I might try and get some photos of it outside there :)

    How bored are you of your car?

    I only started driving in November 1994 and since then I have had 13 cars so I probably get bored easily. Although like someone previously said they get a buzz out of changing a car. I hope I don't get bored too quickly in this one. I shouldn't do as it has everything I want in a car.

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    Yes that is the reason. :) I have just returned from the dealer with my car. The original faults are now rectified and as far as I can tell no other faults are there. It seems odd to see the door mirrors flash when I press the lock button. The mileage is about what I would expect for a couple...

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    Well they could do a slightly different story "4 months to complete a 60 minute job!" Either way the facts remain the same.

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    I have to go and get my photo taken tomorrow by the newspaper :) I phoned MB Tamworth today to confirm "rumours" that my car is actually booked in for the EIS job. It IS and the MB service manager says it's only a simple job and the car will be done tomorrow morning and fixed by the afternoon...

    After driving one for hundreds of miles on the XBOX I quite fancy driving a real Saleen S7 Twin Turbo.

    Top Gear

    I can't understand why people take things so seriously. I work in a printing company and if he'd have said all printers are gay I would just laugh. I wouldn't phone up the BBC. He obviously hit a nerve :)

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    Kevin told me on Tuesday that he would be round to MB at 9am the next morning to get this done. When does he ever tell the truth. I am very annoyed that even now he's trying to avoid the main dealer. Thank you again Jay for talking to them. They tell you more than they ever tell me.

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    Well I did have it, but it was only like a loan car while waiting for the parts to arrive. I am sure ultimately that will go against me. With hindsight I can see I should have run a mile, but they were very convincing. I am too trusting/forgiving for my own good.

    Prosedure for KeyFob Replacement

    That is what I was told by MB too when I enquired about the price of a new key. V5 in my name, at least two utility bills with the same address and the car itself is what they asked for.

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    I don't know know the ins and outs of hire purchase, but am I not hiring the car from the finance company? The finance company were told about this 2 months ago and have not helped hurry things up at all. I will worry about that later.

    What can I do about a car dealer who's got my car.

    Well I was supposed to get the first two months with no payments. As it is now I will be making the third payment next week! When I do finally get the car I will write to the finance company suggesting we start over again. I was told a long time ago by Choice that they will upgrade the warranty...
