    Can I de-restrict my M113 engine?

    I've been looking at a website which indicates the theoretical top speed of my car and it seems as though it could hit 168mph, when eventually we are allowed back to Germany. My car hits an indicated 160mph/258kmh at 4,650rpm, with the red line at 6,000rpm, so there is capacity. Any ideas...

    S211 power bootlid re-opens

    On occasion, the powered bootlid for my 2003 estate re-opens after having pressed the red 'close' button. It closes to about 20% and then raises. We are replacing the gas struts, which are knackered; they (the indy) mentioned that there is a potentiometer too, though it is unclear if this...

    S211 E500 rear air shocks airmatic

    I have a leaking osr shock and the indy has told me that: - a leak can't be traced i.e. to a hose, as it's essentially a sealed black box - it differs from the standard S211 system as it has a nitrogen reservoir - the rear subframe needs to be dropped for a replacement - therefore we may...

    S211 Power Boot not closing

    It was working fine - and then not closing when the big red button is pressed. Could this be just as simple as a fuse, or something more complex?

    Rear wiper seized S211

    The action on the rear wiper has been intermittent for some months (which I've ignored). Now, it seems to have given up the ghost completely. The water pump works, but there is no commensurate wiping action. Additionally, the manual function (on/off) doesn't work and the light on the switch...

    S211 E500 brake upgrade?

    I have never been 100% satisfied with the uniformity of the brake performance, under load, when coming to a halt. The brakes, for example, don't seem to have the tanker-stopping performance of my SEC, but with a linear braking performance. Perhaps when the brake pads are newer, but I don't feel...

    S211: Replacement of motor drive for load compartment cover

    Hi, I have sourced a replacement unit from ebay 2nd hand (fingers crossed!). I have damaged mine by overloading the boot with luggage and 'forcing' the load cover to close by having failed to retract it (intentionally, as I like to have a clean line of sight in the boot). Has anyone replaced...
