    Garaging a C180

    Am getting a new garage door sorted - opening 2110mm. Car will fit through this with a couple of inches to spare either side. A shade tighter than GrahamC200's garage, but should work fine. Thanks for all the posts on this thread. &nbsp;<img...

    vibration on steering

    Given that you've just had tyres changed this sounds mighty like a balance problem. If the garage that did the tyres can't sort suggest you go elsewhere.

    Garaging a C180

    Thanks for all the interest. 1) A fourth way of measuring the width of the car (through the open windows) gives 198cm. 2) The wing mirror tip is 228mm from the window - that's on the basis of a right angle line out from the window. 3) The wing mirror itself is 237 mm from mounting to tip...

    Garaging a C180

    Following posts on this board I've got paranoid about the measurement. I've done it three ways: 1) straight across - of course the bow of the windscreen does make this a little difficult, but it can still be done. 2) Plumb line from the tip of each mirror to the ground, mark the points, move the...

    Garaging a C180

    Thanks for all the comments. The tape measure is right, so it has to be the wing mirrors - not something I would have thought of without the contributions above. I found a C180 in a car park, and the wing mirrors look a lot smaller than those on mine. I'll see the MB garage on Monday and see...

    Garaging a C180

    Thanks for the replies; appreciated. The measurements suggest a width for the C180 in the range of 1720-1730mm, which is V12's 68 inches, Guy's conversion of 1727mm - though I've come across one measurement at 5'9&quot; which would be 1752mm. As far as I can tell with a tape measure my C180 is...

    Garaging a C180

    Can anyone help me with an exact wing-mirror-tip to wing-mirror-tip measurement for the C180 Classic 1996? Web sites variously give the width of the C180 as 1723mm, 1725mm, 1728mm and 5'9&quot;. This must be measurement without the wing mirrors - I have a garage with a width of 1958mm, and the...
