Looks like the the top mounting portion of my rear shock (E Class estate) has give way.

Anything I need to know in that...
I have my S212 350 CGI with 199k miles and it's burning a lot of oil. Somewhere in the order of 1 litre in less than 1000 miles. At least that was the case before renewing the PCV valve. It still burns a lot.

I was parallel parking on the street one day, and as I was lining up another person shouts at me, asking if I am parking "there or there", being smart.

In the latter photos you will see...
Just a quick question. I have started work on repairing the rust on my rear arches and hit a bit of a conundrum. Wondering if you guys can help?
You will see in the drawing below, a rough outline of the rear arch and internal lip. I need to remove all the rubber sealant in the lip...
In January last year I got the MB bug with my S212 E350 CGI estate and bought an R230 SL500 back in September..
I have been able to justify the SL using the argument that as a DIY'er it will be a lot more affordable to maintain and I will only do a couple of thousand miles a...
I have just taken the (broken) alternator out of my E class with a view to refurbishing it myself.
Would anybody be able to help me track down the correct bits for a refurb?
I am looking for:
