    This 'generalism' is just that - a general rule. It doesn't work, the faster you go and if you do the maths you will find that just shy of 60mph, the 2 second rule does not work. At speeds above 57 - 58mph ish - the 2 second rule will cause you to hit the car in front (albeit at a snails pace)...

    SL55 AMG V8 Kompressor

    Finally SOLD..........am I happy or sad.........mixed feelings. Sold to a guy who owned an SL65! Said the 65 was 'too refined' and "never sounded angry". Didn't rate the V12 bi-turbo at all. Sold @ £16k. Over the 5 years I had her, I spent £5k in spares and repairs and lost £500 in resale value...

    Reluctant sale of an original and limited edition SL55.

    Finally SOLD..........am I happy or sad.........mixed feelings. Over the 5 years I had her, I spent £5k in spares and repairs and lost £500 in resale value. £5.5k over 5 years equates to £20/week....£80/month. For the honour of owning a supercar....Ausgezeichnet!

    Classic valuations

    Adrian Flux did an agreed valuation on my Merc for £15. I suggested the price and their underwriters got me to fill a form in and take 7 strategic piccies. They got back within the week and agreed my suggestion. Couldn't have been simpler.

    Trying to sell my Merc and BMW (going thru an OCD moment!). Reluctant sale of an original and limited edition SL55. BMW 323Ci | eBay (Car isn't sold - the buyer didn't show up!!). This is the latest so far: Scam - "Living abroad, looking for a present for my father, will send shipping...

    Why do owners of cabriolets do this ?

    Pathetic isn't it - one buys a soft top and non soft top people criticise us for when and where we can raise or lower our roofs WTF? Get a life lads. People with soft tops love the roof down - end of. Popping into a pub or a store for no more than an hour does not present a threat. Yes if you...

    V5c [ log book] previous owners details removed.

    From a recently previous life, it was brought to my attention that V5's and other 'similar' documentation (MoT's for instance) - all go towards Identity theft, in the wrong hands. The 'scammer' may already have some info on you from the advert, your e-mail address, your telephone number, etc. In...

    C63 & snow foam

    Lexus 500 hybrid. Two things put me off (a little) with the i8: 1. Gull wings - need to plan ahead where one parks! Also if the car rolled in an accident - how do doors open? 2. Cars introduced in UK in 2014, batteries now 5 years old - warranted to 8 years I believe? Over the next few years...

    SL55 AMG cooler fan replace

    Dave - you are referring to the SL55 AMG yes? Didn't realise I have to come from underneath as well - thanks? What is the general verdict buying aftermarket rather than OEM? (Apart from cost!).

    Tyre choices driving me crazy

    Refurbed - Rims were split, the odd tungsten stud replaced (£8 each extra), wheel rims were acid dipped and then re-enammelled (Metallic gun metal grey). Outer rims were polished but NOT varnished on purpose. It means they come up like new once chrome polished every month. North West, near...

    Mmmm interesting - quite a few women and retired vicars on this forum, methinks. Next they'll be telling me they haven't got the strength to support the hose as it stretches over the back of the boot. Ah, bless their little biceps!
