    1997 W140 S320 - spares or repairs

    Right folksies, any interest in my S class? The garage I've dumped it at reckon it's a suspect faulty ECU that's causing it to start but not open the throttle. I've no time to sort it out with my new job and I'm moving into a new flat next week so it has to go. It's a 1997 S320, it's had 2...

    Don't bother breaking quarter lights (not that it would benefit you), do a "lift" glass instead. A replacement one is about £25 on ebay and you can fit it yourself instead of getting it bonded. Of course if you're only going to break it that may be irrelevant. Can you get anything inside to...

    S211 - I keep finding new toys

    I'm guilty of this too, when I discovered the self close worked on the W140 I'd always use it (though now I've decided it's best if I don't so I don't waste the pump :o), when I left the car I'd press the Rest button to keep it warm and I always waited for the window wipers to work themselves :o

    I only ever use online banking to check my balance :o, is it good enough for that?

    Which bank?

    I'm looking to escape from the delightful banking establishment that is HBOS, the current favourite replacement is Clydesdale bank. Any recommendations? It'd be nice to have someone that gives a hoot instead of making as much money as possible from me! It's just a basic current account and a...

    Has the current model ranges devalued the brand

    I think it's safe to say we're already there, in my family we've always had and ran car's for a long time, for example my parents bought a 3 year old Rover 214Si back in about 1996ish, it was an ex company car with company car miles, we ran that car for around 5 years and it never missed a beat...

    How long does a police warrant last?

    No, I've not been naughty, just watching Road Wars :o and curiosity's got the better of me. One of the suspects was released on bail and disappeared so a warrant was issued for his arrest. Does this warrant last for life or does it run out?

    Cheap electrical bargains

    Definitely a bit poo, a few of us talked about sharing fuel costs and nipping down to pick up some stuff. I'm after a home cinema system and all I see are reasons why I should get 3D :o.

    Washer question?

    Pah, my last 3 cars have had headlight wash with wipe, much better than squirting water! :p They are actually quite useful in winter....when they work!

    what product for cleaning alloy wheels-lots of caked on brake dust

    At the moment I'm using Autobrite Very Cherry non corrosive wheel cleaner, it works really well for me. I'm also using Migliore wheel sealant too.

    DVLA’s SORN shambles: legally unenforceable and administrative chaos

    I scrapped my old Vectra after it was broken for parts back in 2008, I sent the V5 away soon after, I had SORN'd it and when the SORN would have run out no tax reminder came. I presumed this would be correct, fast forward to this year and I get a fine for £80. I've not paid it yet, though when I...

    Yesterday's little adventure

    I'm not going to thank that, in fact where's the unthanks button :p, it works and at the moment that's one better than the S class can say, oh and it used half the fuel but that's irrelevant :o:p
