    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    Apparently they placed orders with 6 different companies, but have only given 2 of them clearance to be used. This means they have a big shortfall and now Hungary has resorted to try and get the vaccine from Russia instead. They're blaming the UK and the US, and anyone else caught in the...

    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    More importantly, the UK ordered the Astra Zenaca vaccine 3 months before the EU, add to that, the EU have not even cleared it for use yet, so are they just going to have it sitting in fridges until they decide it can be used? Or are they just trying to stop the UK vaccinating the whole...

    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    Well if the UK ordered the vaccines first and started the process to allow them to be used before they were even ready to be delivered, while all the rest sat and twiddled their thumbs, then why not?

    Police caution for simple accident

    Sadly, the last clip of that video was released by the bikers mother in the hope that it would avoid another life being lost as he never made it.

    Police caution for simple accident

    I only remember it was carried out by people with more knowledge than us and related to how the human brain processed information. But the findings were that many people do actually see the m/cycle, yet still proceed to pull out anyway. I've seen drivers perform dangerous manouvres in front of...

    Police caution for simple accident

    There has been a few scientific studies relating to this, I read a really good one a few years ago but cannot find it now. They found that in a lot of these collisions, the driver did see the m/cycle but their brain did not process the information as they were not expecting to see anything, so...

    Police caution for simple accident

    As a m/cyclist myself, it's always reassuring to see a guy knocked off his bike by a car, referred to as "a simple accident"!

    New petrol and diesel car sales will be 'banned from 2030'

    A cable is a lot easier to steal than a whole car though. Imagine every lamp post is a charging point, in less than 30 minutes they could have 100 cables to take to the scrap yard. When I see pictures from Norway of cars parked all along a street plugged in to charging points, I think in the...

    C63 have I got ILS??

    This might be an old thread, but my SLC has ILS and it doesn't light up blue, but my C Class does. (moot point though, as they both have Intelligent Light System stamped on the light itself)

    W209 auto folding

    After renewing the battery in my SLC, the auto folding mirrors on locking did not work. On checking the menu, it was still enabled and after a few days it just started working again. Give a few days to see if it resets itself.

    ECU remaps - be aware...

    Mine was serviced at an Indy, it too got the update. I was told they connect the car up to the servers in Mercedes Germany as part of the service, and have no control over the updates. The servers just start to download what has been determined that the car requires.

    START STOP

    I can assure you it will not work on your car if the battery or capacitor is at fault. My battery was slightly less than 100% perfect and despite using it daily for three whole weeks on long runs the stop/start still never worked. After replacing the battery, it started to work again. On your...

    What A Muppet

    I used one of those blades on the front passenger window about 10 years ago, must have been a bit of grit there and for the last 10 years all I see is a big score in the glass everytime I look at that window. Put it straight in the bin and never used one since.

    START STOP

    Not with a C250d from 2017 you won't. It doesn't have an auxilliary battery, it uses a capacitor that sits behind the glove box. It's a common part to fail and does not give any warnings when it does. Mine was replaced under warranty when the stop/start failed, that fixed it at the time but 18...

    Automatic lights

    So Mercedes spend millions and find that with the sun behind you as you drive into the shade, drivers coming towards you cannot see you as the sun is shining in their eyes. They then think if your headlights are on, you will be visible to any car coming towards you. You however, think this is...

    Automatic lights

    OK, you say they're too sensitive but I've read many posts that relate to how Mercedes have deemed it necessary to have them on when the ordinary driver might not think so?

    OK, after reading post number 7, tell us why you feel this way?

    Which iCarsoft reader?

    I think that was added with a new software update. I recently changed the two batteries on my cars and did not bother programming them to the car and they work perfectly. Not really sure what the point of that feature is for?

    On any of my MB's, it's been more like 90 or 95%.
