    C55 hesitating/ stalling

    Apologies if posting in wrong section. My C55 has started hesitating and lurching a bit at lower speeds and the idle is a bit erratic at times. I have done a bit of research and ended up removing the MAF and cleaning it, but if anything it hasn't cured it but made the issue more noticeable. Am...

    Flickering Xenons. C55 AMG

    I’ve got a lengthy thread going on the AMG section, but this is a more specific query so I’m posting it here first. The passenger side xenon headlight on my C55 estate is flickering on and off quite regularly now. It’s not showing any dashboard warning lights. Simple bulb fix or something more...

    2014 E63 Estate - service costs

    Im considering purchasing a 2014 E63 wagon which will be due a four year B service soon. It's covered low miles (30k) but I suspect from previous AMG experience, the B service won't be cheap.... What else needs doing at four years old, assuming they need spark plugs at this age and possibly...

    On the lookout for a 61-plate onwards E350cdi estate in the AMG spec. Would ideally like the HK sound option and panoramic sunroof. A factory fit tow bar would be the icing.

    Dirty thoughts about a 107SL

    Since the untimely demise of the C43, I've been Merc-less. My 'temporary' stop-gap car, bought whilst waiting for the insurance payout, is an Audi A4 diesel, but worryingly, it's starting to look like a permanent fixture. :ban: Lately though, the voices in my head have been urging me to buy an...

I've been asked to submit a couple of examples of C43's of similar spec and mileage to my insurers as evidence of the fact i think their 'market' value is well under...

    Another bent Merc

    Without wishing to sound too self-indulgent, it's been a slightly sh*t few weeks - and today the icing was put on my cake of woes. A suicidal pheasant stepped out in front of the W204 C-Class hire car I've been using since my accident. Travelling at 60-ish I wasn't about to swerve into oncoming...

    Brake Assist

    Frightening experience on the M6 this afternoon - overtaking a truck, I was in the middle lane, came up behind another car and dabbed the brakes slightly to shed speed. I merely tapped the brake pedal and it seemed to shoot to the floor and full braking force was applied. I can only think the...
