    10% rule

    It was a mobile camera in a van. The instructor who ran my course said at the start he was ex-police. I was lucky and able to take the course in my home town where I lived so did not have to drive a round trip of 120 miles.

    To be frank it was in the New Forest I thought it was a 40 MPH speed limit, so 34 was well safe, but wrong my error !

    10% rule

    I am not sure what the rules/guidelines are. Last September I was sent a notice of intended prosecution or the option of a speed awareness course for doing 34 MPH in a 30 limit. I took the awareness course (AKA contribution to retired police officers pension scheme). So in Hampshire the 10%...

    Car has been delayed.

    Happened to me as well. Mine was the new E Class estate. Original delivery date was Mid November 2016, given 4 dates all missed. Eventually delivered to me on 31st January 2017. I know mine was a new model, so hopefully all delivery issues are in the past and yours should only be a short...

    SD Card S213 - HELP!

    Hi Nev, There is only one SD card slot, so if you remove the Garmin Card and replace with another card you will lose your sat nav. If you want your own music you will have to do what I did . I downloaded all my albums onto a USB memory stick and have that permanently inserted into the slot in...

    W213 SE Estate Delivery

    The dealership should only need 5 working days from when they take delivery of your car to have it ready for you to collect or deliver to you. So it should be any day now.:thumb:

    W213 SE Estate 8 weeks in

    Hi, To be honest I have not looked into the Garmin update. I will do this in the next week and report back. Thanks for the reminder that I can possibly update. Just need now to find a company who manufacture a boot liner for the new Estate. Anyone out there any pointers for any...

    W213 SE Estate 8 weeks in

    This is my feedback on the first 8 weeks of living with my new E class estate. 1. It is true, you can only get into 9th gear if you are in excess of the motorway speed limit. At 75 mph indicated speed, the gearbox smoothly moves into 9th. 2. On long motorway runs I have returned figures...

    W213 SE Estate Delivery

    I think things are a lot better now in terms of on time delivery. Speaking to the dealership the initial first couple of production runs were not as smooth as they should have been. But things are sorted now. So hopefully you will have no problems and yours will be on time.

    Tracking a factory order - possible?

    I think you maybe forgetting something here .You are the customer and you are spending a lot of money with them. So customer service is a right and you should expect not to be made to feel if you are inconviencing them. Remember ultimately you are paying their wages and keeping them employed. I...

    W213 SE Estate Delivery

    The XF and E Class both look good on the drive. Pity the Jaguar is going. A friend of our ours has brought it direct from the lease company at a very very good price. Has 48,000 miles on the clock, full JSH, never been pranged, in excellent condition. Price, well let's say well below trade. I...

    W213 SE Estate Delivery

    I will admit it I was wrong. At 9.50 am this morning my car arrived. The delivery driver was excellent, he called me at 8.00 am to give me an ETA, then again five minutes before he arrived (I think that was to get the kettle on). He then spent 50 minutes giving me a comprehensive and thorough...
