    GL 164 tyre choice

    Tires are ridiculously expensive here in Arizona. I had Continental (275/50/20) fitted last time at a cost, from Discount tire, of a little over $1300. 15000 miles later I am ready to replace them. so, off to Discount tire, to find that a set of continentals are now a little over $1400. I have...

    Hillman Imps / Our other cars

    My wifes 1st car was a Sunbeam imp sport. That had twin headlights, twin carbs and a woodrim steering wheel. It is long gone now but I still have the steering wheel on the wall of my garage. I had the second gen Hillman minx at the time, that was the rustiest thing I have ever seen. I did only...

    X164 Front Suspension Bush

    I am waiting for the control arms to be delivered so that i can change mine. I was told that the bushes were not available seperately. Although I am not convinced that the garage were just trying to make the job easier, and more lucrative, for themselves. They quoted $2200, but I got them...

    Advice required RE G Wagon

    The G Wagen is definitely on my bucket list. I am a big fan of the LR Defender but my limitations require an auto. The 450 GL I currently have has been a good load hauler. I have pulled trailers from one side of the US to the other, more than once. I have had it soft roading through the Nevada...

    TESLA 3 details.

    Son in laws father has owned his X for around a year now. It has not been without its problems. The Christmas light show/soundtrack easter egg was fun. It would be interesting to hear someone elses thoughts on the X. Personally I am not as keen on that as the S. I know the the gull wing rear...

    TESLA 3 details.

    A 0-60 of 2.4 seconds (with ludicrous button) is an incredible experience. Especially in, almost, silence.

    TESLA 3 details.

    Yes, my son in law drives a model S and decided to place an order for the 3 for my daughter to use. I like the S but cant see me shelling out close to $100000 for one, anytime soon. As an existing Tesla owner he was able to order a maximum of 2 and also existing owners are going to be at the...

    I wear a seiko Chronograph. It cost me $400 20 years ago and the only time it showed the wrong time was when the battery was being changed, around 5 years back. I wear a watch because it reliably tells me the time. If you want jewellery wear jewellery, if you want to know the time wear a...

    Holy crap!! Had the money to get a defender but was going to buy a Cruiser? Valuable lesson there. Hope he is happy with the Land Rover, and has learned to be more discerning in his choices (I'm sure he has) :thumb:

    Have I bought the wrong Merc? (2005 CLK350)

    Have you priced a good extended warranty? The GL I just bought does not have the greatest reliability rating. I have had it about a month and it has cost the warranty company $450 already. Its back into the dealers again Monday. Total cost to me 0 (obviously I paid for the 2 year warranty but...

    Back in a Mercedes

    In a word HUGE! :D. Although it has been easy to get used to. 3 rows of adult sized seats (rear electrically folding, and when all folded its like a van (although a very refined van).Silent inside, with just a hint of a growl from the V8 when pushing on. The only issue, so far, has been a...

    Back in a Mercedes

    Very. The Dodge just was not suited to roads around North Scottsdale, at least not for me, I used to cringe every time it went down a rut or another vehicle came the other way. The GL just glides on raised airmatic.

    Back in a Mercedes

    I've wanted to change my Dodge Charger R/T for a car more suited to the unpaved roads around Arizona. It was a toss up between Range Rover and ML/GL Mercedes. Finally decided, after a year of deliberation, on this 2011 GL450. I'm about a month into ownership and, whilst it has had some initial...

    CLS Owner's Register

    Would it not be interesting to post the original reg number. I sold mine around 2-3 years ago and wonder if any of the Grand editions registered here after are the same car.

    Mercedes CLS 350 CDI Grand edition

    If it eliminated the annoying throttle delay I would be VERY interested. It is the reason that I sold my Grand Edition, after 2 annoying years. A great car spoiled by, I assume, emission restrictions. I had the car back to the dealers more than I drove it. They tried wiping and reloading the...

    How much do you pay for insurance

    If you think your paying a lot for insurance, I had a trousers down and touch toes experience Friday when trying to insure 3 pick up trucks on a commercial policy. How does $6500 grab you and this from a broker that I currently give $2000 a year to to insure my car! I have really had my eyes...

    My new car

    The new A class is definitely growing on me, really was not impressed at first. In contrast to the CLA which I was drooling over when the pre production shots were released, now, not so sure. Great looking car OP, would like to see the interior.
