    One of a kind. but what a price.....

    Thing is, we also now know that this ISN'T a "one-of-a-kind" car, because of the one in the US that was being sold earlier in the year in a similar condition. Didn't that one go for less?

    what irish plate is worth £3000?

    If he thinks he can make £5k off the requirement that the plate be misrepresented to display what he's claiming, he IS a bellend. First time you get a tug with that showing, it'll get revoked.

    Recommended breakers/scrappers?

    Time has been called on my S124; it was cheap, I've had a good 10 months/8000 miles out of it but to keep it going for another year, Colin Ferns has quoted a minimum of £2k - that's just the essentials, not the rusty wings & the like. It's got some good optional extras (A/C, sunroof...

    Lemming-like grille star!

    I've just had my 3-pointed star jump off the bonnet while cruising at high speed! I don't believe it's due to anyone messing with it while it was parked, and I'd already had a 2 hour drive first-thing this morning during which time the star showed no signs of being loose. Is it normal for...

    W124 estate boot carpets in mushroom

    My estate's doomed, so I'd have no problem with you having the carpets, seats, & load cover. I've also got an OEM black PVC hardshell boot liner, which could help you avoid this happening again in the future ;) Located in SW16.

    Convert my old key to new

    Is there a way to do something similar with the old brick/flick keys like my W124 has? It steadfastly refuses to come back to life after the normal resoldering (as explained elsewhere on this forum) so I was wondering if I could transfer any specific part into a new keyfob before trying to get a...

    Flat bettery w124

    If you're leaving the car for several weeks between starts, either fit a trickle-charger to cover the normal drains (clock, radio memory, etc.) or disconnect the battery between uses; just be sure to keep all reactivation codes handy!

    Beep/Buzz Sound on ignition turning W124?

    My W124 only buzzes when the lights are on & the driver's door is opened; wouldn't surprise me if that was the case in the videos as well. It's certainly only meant to sound when there's a problem - it is a warning buzzer, after all!

    Maybe a cheap C43 for someone

    I wouldn't call 3-4 months "long" MoT/Tax, but it's enough to get a feel for the car I suppose.

    W124 Heater fan playing up

    After umming and ahhing (and getting screwed on a potential replacement), I've finally seen sense & I'm keeping my S124. However, as is always the way with these things I described the car to someone as being totally reliable, then jumped in it & tried to turn on the blower for some fresh air to...

    under floor lighting

    Blue lights on the whole are a no-no, even the little LEDs & replacement sidelight bulbs you can get from Halfords are dubious & could result in a pull, if only so they can look for something "proper" to nick you for. So long as they're not causing glare for other road users, and not showing...
