When I press the brake pedal I hear a hissing...

    R129 & R230 SL500 experience

    I do miss my R129 SL500, I even kept my S1 SDO plate from it, as I always hoped that I would buy another one day, but as time goes on that's looking less and less likely, with the push towards greener vehicles. Think the later SL's lost out to the 911 in many ways, as they were 2 seaters...

From everything that I have read you can get a better sound than that of the Bose, using quality aftermarket speakers and amps fitted into the existing mounts, so would look OEM. Great news...

    I have a '98 S280, which has covered 79k miles and has been in the family for nearly 20 years and used to belong to my late father. It has been fairly reliable over the years, but currently has a few issues, faulty AC, central locking pump and the electric mirrors failed after some toe rag...

    W140 left side wing mirror

    Hi I need a replacement passenger side wing mirror for a UK W140 S280 1998. Preferably Silver, but will consider any colour. The car has electric folding mirrors, but not memory (not sure if this actually makes any difference to the type of mirror). Thanks Tan

    Anybody else get excited planning new home cinema and audio kit?

    When I upgraded to the Yamaha RX-V677 I was hoping it would last me a few years as it says that it can handle 4K, but unfortunately it can't pass through the 4K signal from the Sky Q box.

    Anybody else get excited planning new home cinema and audio kit?
