    W213 E63s 4Matic clunking... Anyone else?

    My Audi definitely does this, at least as bad as any Merc I've had. Conversely, our previous Porsche Cayenne and Porsche Macan did not, the Macan being the same chassis as the Q5 mentioned above. What does this tell us? Nothing. Some cars do it, some don't. But it's not a Mercedes issue...

    Ml63AMG

    You won't get anywhere near 25mpg on one of these I'm afraid. We've had two 5.5 ML63's and we're now on our second GLE 63 Coupe and all have been fairly consistent..... 13mpg is the average over a variety of driving 9-10mpg is the worst around town 20mpg is the very best, if you're really...

    W213 E63s 4Matic clunking... Anyone else?

    Wow, so much anger on this subject. My wife has an AMG GLE 63 and this skips / judders very noticeably at low speeds. I had until recently an AMG GT, obviously a rear wheel drive car, and this skipped at low speeds. Before that I had a Porsche 911 GTS, a four wheel drive one, and that...

    C63 PPP - KW V3 Coilovers

    Oooh crikey, this is a very long time ago. I honestly can't remember the settings but I did appear to document it quite well at the time - I must have had a lot more time spare back then! HHamsters repost of my settings above will be what I settled on so I'd start with those because, despite...

    Camera in Motion

    Yes good shout, thanks Peter. I have met Richard when I had our ML63, nice guy. From memory on old threads, he won't entertain any kind of video in motion (which I understand and respect) however Richard, if you see this and there is a solution to extend the time my camera's stay on (that...

    The good, the bad and the ugly....

    Thanks guys, appreciate the comments :) Had a bit of misfortune with the GT today, or rather last night, as I woke up to this... Must have driven over a bottle on the way home last night. When I say the previous owner of the car spec'd it with every option, I mean everything including...

    Camera in Motion

    I thought long and hard before deciding to post this, as I remember the general consensus of video in motion on this forum is vehemently against it. A view that, for the record, I agree with. However..... My GLE coupe has a most fantastic 360 camera and, due to the size of the car and not...

    The good, the bad and the ugly....

    Thank you :) I don't have any garage pictures without a car in it....so these will have to do

    The good, the bad and the ugly....

    Agreed, GTC Coupe is the pick but not worth £50k more than what I paid for my GTS. It will be more 'appropriate' after a year or so of depreciation. I have always wanted an Aston, both for the brand and aesthetics. Tremendous looking things, at least until the DB11. As I said, I came to...

    The good, the bad and the ugly....

    Thanks. I didn't consider the DB11 (can't really get on with the looks and a bit too expensive still) but I did look at a slightly older (2015) Vanquish. What a pile of dogsh*t. I've always wanted an Aston and they look tremendous so I actually paid a deposit on one at AM Wilmslow just...

    The good, the bad and the ugly....

    It was actually an M3 Competition Pack. I got it to tide me over after rejecting the Range Rover SVR until I could source a replacement big car for my wife. We ended up keeping it for a couple of months but I have to say, I'm not a fan. It looked tremendous, and it had superb seats, a great...

    The good, the bad and the ugly....

    OK, it goes downhill from here. Admittedly, I got the ‘good’ one out the way first but now we must move onto my second recently acquired AMG…..the 'bad'(ass), 'ugly' one :p Maybe this will be more to everyones taste? Some may remember that I tried one of these when they first came...

    The good, the bad and the ugly....

    Evening all! Well then, after a couple of years away from Mercedes sampling the utter sh!tness of Audi reliability (in an R8)...followed by the wonders of Porsche perfection (911, Cayenne, Macan and briefly 718 Boxster....but the less said about the 718 the better), I find myself in the tricky...

    What Have You Done To Your Merc Today?

    Hello all. I'm back in a Mercedes....so thought I'd give it a polish :D

    gTechniq ceramic worth it or not?

    Much as Simon mentions above, I'm also not impressed with Crystal Serum after now having it applied to numerous cars, especially given the cost and claims. Sure, it makes the surface slippery and relatively easy to clean but the main claim of the product is to resist swirls through its very...

    AMG GT has arrived

    Evening chaps..... Who invited you on here eh? You and your posh Veedub have no place in these parts ;) But you're right, the posh Fiat was certainly not an alternative. And referring to it as a Fiat is more than sarcasm....many of the visible parts are actually Fiat items! I'm even kind...

    My new GT

    That looks superb, the R8 is truly one of the finest cars I've driven - I'm not sure why I've not had one yet (should really put my Audi prejudices to one side for that one!). 950bhp? :eek: :crazy: :D Totally agree the new one doesn't look as good outside but it does have a tremendous...

    GTS is here..

    So this is where the thread is now! Yeah, I always thought when had my Turbo that I'd bought the wrong Porsche...when it was in the dealer and I had a C2 S courtesy car, I found it much more fun. Whenever I've looked at 991's, I know the 'right' car is the GTS (or GT3) but the new 991...

    E63 , what a nice car

    These are great cars, and the S is relatively rare. It was a challenge to find one at a decent price and this example seems good value. Ours has most of the important options (special paint, dynamic ventilated seats, black pack, folding seats, rear seat entertainment, driver assistance...

    AMG GT has arrived

    So, update on my shenanigans this weekend. I went to try an FF, and as I drive the dealers demonstrator rather than the one I was looking to buy, I suspect it was a lot better than the (much older) one I was looking at. I was impressed, certainly enough to let my heart rule my head and pay a...
