    Maybach S450 in China

    Thanks @DSM10000 , this is my first Album, now changed the perms to Everyone. Hopefully the images can be viewed now. Who knows? ;) My wife told me today that there is a joke going around on Chinese social media that because face masks are sold out everywhere and new cars from BMW, Audi...

    Maybach S450 in China

    Just saw this car today in the apartment compound in Changzhou where I've been staying in China. Caught me by surprise, as I've seen no luxury cars in here at all, though outside a few S-classes purring by and an outrageous Ferrari. The shape appeals to me, but the chrome seems a tad tacky and a...

    Satnav updates under warranty?

    Hi, I heard from my main dealer today that new car owners are entitled to 3 free maps updates under warranty, but they don't all have to be installed within the warranty period. So, they say, I can spread my 3 updates out over multiple years outside my warranty period. It sounds flexible, so...

    Does MB provide a courtsey car and if so what cost?

    Cost? Tomorrow I take my car in for a maps update and they told me they'll need the car for a few hours and that a courtesy car will cost me around £20, likely an A or C class. Apparently they started charging about 8 months ago (Listers, Grimsby).

    Mobilo : good value or not?

    Hello folks, My recent experience of Mobilo (not being able to get a part to me over a weekend, recovery only offered, no hire car matching as advertised) is not a positive one. It doesn't seem for good value for money. I've read a few threads on Mobilo here. Do you think Mobilo represents...

    Pothole damage

    My local tyre garage had a straightening machine and tried to unbend one of my rims (unsuccessful unfortunately). They said the machine heats the rim, but can't repair badly bent time because it could crack the alloy. MB Grimsby said they need replacement. Who knows, I might be able to salvage...

    Pros/cons of 18" spacesaver wheel in the boot of a 20" wheeled car?

    Hi folks, A pothole (or two) killed two of my tyres and both rims in one go on Saturday. My car is now with Mercedes Grimsby getting a full check. But it got me thinking about punctures generally as I've only got a tyre inflation kit in the boot. But on two wheel websites I looked at the only...

    Tyre shop damaged all of my wheels

    I've always trusted the tyre shops I've used to not damage my wheels and have never checked unless they reported a problem to me. I'll pay closer attention in future! Having said that I'll never go back to Kwikfit who sheared off a couple of my bolts and blamed them on being weak! They were...

    Real stunner today in Chelmsford, Bond Street.

    Not a fan of those Maybach wheels (bet the chauffeurs love polishing those and kerb avoiding!), but it's a stunning looking car. It's one of the few cars where the inside looks a *lot* better than the outside.

    Where are all the SWB W222's?

    I've got one and love it so it won't be in the market for a long while. A mate of mine who sits in the back of a lot of limos said he'd never sat in a SWB, always LWB. And in the 1.5 years I've had my SWB I've not seen another abouts (living in Belgium, then the UK).

    Fitting Dashcam to W222 S Class

    No probs, I'll have a go at the weekend. For now the USB cable (IIRC it was 5m long), runs horizontally along the glass/trim edge left to the passenger front pillar, then down the pillar to the bottom, then horizontally at the base of the pillar (my only safety concern as the pillar airbag going...

    TMC issue on a W222 COMAND pre-facelift

    Diesel Benz, I haven't yet noticed any stale TMC messages on my W222, but if they start or my dealer says anything relevant, I'll let you know on this thread. Sent from my G3112 using Tapatalk

    Which would you buy?

    Yes, it has enough seats for me Happy, I just need one! But seriously, SWMBO doesn't like coupés as it means getting in and out of her seat to let people in the back, or feel obliged to vacate when one of our friends travelling with us is tall (her main gripe with my lovely Saab 9-3...
