    My latest PROBLEM

    I wonder if the brackets are "sacrificial" to save the expensive light unit in the event of a minor impact ?? , seems convenient that the screw holes are already in the light unit and the brackets set is available from the dealer. K

    My latest PROBLEM

    When you zoom into the top bolt in the pic it looks like an eccentric , possibly to set the L + R alignment. A few on eBay with similarly broken brackets , if yours has the LED lights then they look frighteningly expensive. If the car hasn`t had an MOT yet then it may be an issue if the beam...

    BMW 840i gran coupe

    Good choice , the stonking B58 motor coupled to the ZF8 is a great combo. Was recently contemplating replacing my 440i but cant find a suitable replacement and why would i change something that impresses me every time i drive it. Dont know what MB servicing is like now but the BM gets a...

    Garage vs Car Port / Open Air

    We have an 8m x 3m concrete sectional garage with an apex tiled roof that was built around 15 years ago and has been moisture free since it was built. Even in the coldest temps a small oil filled heater keeps any condensation at bay. Built in just two days by a local company once i had poured...

    Wiring loom for analogue clock

    If it is only a three wire connection then why cant you just use three pieces of wire either soldered ,or pushed , onto the connectors at the rear of the clock ? K

    Wiring loom for analogue clock

    I kind of get the £40 ish for the harness but £40 ish for delivery is a bit of a pi$$ take , considering it would probably be sent as a large letter. K

    Wiring loom for analogue clock

    Can you not use individually shrink wrapped female connections to fit onto the male connections on the rear of the clock ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/284256159080?epid=887313222&hash=item422efcc568:g:vV0AAOSwVdlgdY7X The style of the connection looks familiar , what about wiring connections...

    eBay ?

    It was listed as "cash on pickup - other , see listings" , in the "see listing"option it offered a bank transfer option. So where does this "code" get entered as i have been all over the listing and order details and at nowhere can i see an option or a drop down menu to enter a code ? K

    eBay ?

    Sold a bike a week ago on eBay ,reputable dealer collected it tonight and paid via bank transfer. How do you mark payment as received + item collected as eBay seem to have made something that used to be soooo simple soooo complex. Searched the "help" section but to no avail as it seems the...

    Chrome wheel bolt covers

    Unless they are ultra expensive alloys or rare i would ditch the potentially problematic locking bolts and just fit standard bolts in their place. Cant remember the last time i heard of a set of "normal" alloys being blagged. K

    Toaster recommendations please

    Normally when he hears the toaster being primed he saunters in as he associates the burnt bread smell with cheese and he stands waiting for the moment it goes off , still gets a fright though. You think he would learn , same with bees - every year he catches them and every year he gets stung...

    Should you purchase fairly new Mercedes cars from Mercedes dealers ?

    Off list , for Joe public paying list the car would have been £24k , we paid £12k. Obviously Enterprise would have got it for much less as they would be buying in bulk but i was happy with what we got for our money and the fact it had 30m warranty remaining. K

    Should you purchase fairly new Mercedes cars from Mercedes dealers ?

    We bought a 6 month old Juke from our local Peter Vardy , i questioned why such a new car was outwith the dealer network. Turns out some of these big "supermarkets" buy newish cars from rental companies who buy them new , run them up to around 10k miles then auction them off , ours was from...

    Toaster recommendations please

    Dont bother with a SMEG , ours takes ages and when it pops the toast hits off the underside of the wall units as if someone in the production line had fitted a set of Koni spring to the eject mechanism, for a laugh. Even the dog does his best Scooby Doo impersonation when it ejects as there is...
