    2011 E350 CDI Estate - corrosion!

    I've recently noticed some bodywork corrosion on my 2011 E Class Estate. A bit of a funny area to get corrosion, I think... Rear wheel arches on the inside of the door jams down by where the 'plastic' sill covers meet the rear quarter at the back. Not an area where the body work would get much...

    World champion Lewis Hamilton will start the Chinese Grand Prix from last place on th

    I'm currently not a fan of F1. I'd rather watch paint dry. My must watch is Moto GP. Anyway, as reported this morning on BBC. Quote. "A power-unit problem for Hamilton meant his difficult start to the season continues. His 17-point deficit to Rosberg could grow further on Sunday." A power...

    Privacy glass too dark

    This may rank as the most daft question of 2015 but here goes. I really don't like the tinting on my rear windows. In anything below broad daylight it's impossible to see out of the rear windows when reversing etc. Plus I think it just looks daft. I'm assuming that, as it's factory fitted...
