    Airmatic Re-programming?

    Does anybody know if the Airmatic air suspension on an E320CDi S211 can be re-programmed to alter the ride heights? Basically, I would like to have a setting where the suspension is raised approx 15-20mm over standard. The raised setting is too high and will revert to normal setting...

    Swap tyres front to rear?

    Just picked up the new E-Class estate at the weekend, the rear tyres are showing a bit of wear, probably 3-4mm left, the fronts are much less worn. They are huge 245/45 17's both front and rear, would it be best to swap them front to back so that the better tyres are on the rear for grip and...

    Small TV+DVD Combo

    I have been given the task by a relative to buy them a TV/DVD combo for use primarily in their caravan. They want a small (10" or 12") TV with built in DVD player. The caravan is always hooked up to the mains so 240v is not a problem, dual voltage (12v) would be a bonus but not essential. Any...

    Finding a new car

    Do any of you helpful lot know of any ways of searching for a new (used) car other than Autotrader or ebay? I have heard of companies that will do the searches for you and find exactly what you want, cheaper than you could find it yourself, sort of like a broker I guess? Any ideas?
