    SLK200K auto - Uneven revs whilst driving, not long after starting

    Hi all - Happy New Year - It's been a while! Now between company cars, but Mrs B has another SLK, this time auto. Within a mile, the revs start to hunt.... Could be...? Electronics induced? Gearbox induced? Settles down after a further mile.... Appreciate your thoughts.

    Car stolen....

    meanwhile driving hire cars and my free upgrade from Hertz this week was an Alfa GT 1.9 ???m. Stunning car to look at. Reasonable car to drive. Sounds like a tractor. and the 3.2 Quattro version is slower than a Focus ST.

    Car stolen....

Broke into house - took keys - took car..... only a company-owned piece of metal at the end of the day but I was more emotionally attached than that.

    Advanced driving test - what have I done!
