    Where did the 'S' come from?

    W124 E200 - what to pay for an 94 saloon.

    Would a 94 E220 7 seater estate, Auto with Aircon & the nicer walnut trim but with slight damage be of any interest to you? It starts and drives, just needs a tailgate and tailgate glass, it was damaged when a neighbours car was hit by an uninsured driver whilst parked and was pushed into...

    I would say he meant that £ 273 would be his contribution, ie £ 273 = 30% therefore £ 910 = the total cost of the repair.

    What's the oldest part fitted to a current Merc?

    The interior door lock pins on W211's are from W123's, I'm sure they are used on other Merc's too.

    Should i underseal the sills of my SL or just paint black?

    This is what I would use: Dinitrol 448 Water Based Stonechip, there is a solvent based version but the water base one is much more flexable.

    The channel Islands and the TV licence

    Move to anywhere outside the UK and get a skybox and UK sky card, this will get you all the BBC's etc with no licence fee. Or if its just the BBC licence fee you don't like paying as opposed to any licence fee then you could always move to Ireland, you would have to pay the Irish TV licence...

    Interior trim from any 80's/90's era Merc that fits 1 button in

    Took a few photo's there, hope you can get an idea of what its like from these, I also took one with a spare W124 window switch in it to give some sort of idea of what its like with a switch. I can see if I can get a photo of one in position on a car if you need it...

    Corrosion on UK cars

    Good theory, but it does not explain why Southern Irish cars do not rust like UK ones (including northern Irish) which you would expect if it were due to the climate, the salt on UK roads is the major difference, they have only really started gritting roads here pretty recently and its not very...

    Is it worth buying Euro now?

    I'm going to be pedantic, but its actually the pound that is currently falling in value against the Euro, at the moment Stg £1 will get or € 1.12 / €1 = £0.89 This day 12 months ago Stg £1 would have bought you € 1.39 / €1 = £0.71 So every £1 is now worth 27 cent less / € 1 is now worth 18...

    OEM Mercedes Parking sensor retrofit for a E Class W211

    There are some options out there that are very similar in appearance and function to the original Mercedes Parktronic, "third eye" springs to mind, same internal display in the roof cloth, only visible external difference is that the sensors on the bumper have a ring around them while the OE...

    Garage told me they could change half leather to full leather..

    I presume you are talking about a pre-facelift W211? They had a "twin leather trim" option which was a mix of vinyl and leather, post facelift cars have "artico" which is a full vinyl trim. I'd check what exactly they are offering to do, we have changed the door inserts on twin leather /...
