    mine is in with indie on Monday to have a new door handle to fix a keyless entry issue so will question him on it. Knowing him well though, I bet he would agree with you and only do it if necessary. I’m like you, I check oil and coolant weekly so I’m sure I’d notice any coolant loss in time...

    W211 E63 valve body question

    Changing up doesn't seem to be the issue - it's nasty down changes that are really worrying me (not all of the time, only now and again) Believe it or not it, its goes all the way up to 6th at a little over 40mph, so maybe the car has adapted to Jersey driving!

    I have been noticing some odd things with transmission of late Not all that smooth through the gears, but worst is the down changes. 5th to 4th is rough and when coasting to a stop, 2nd down to first (in S mode) is downright harsh! Sometimes a real thump. Dreaded internet searching seems to...
