    SL 3.0 M103 headaches

    The SL has been off the road for the last 9 months and due to work/race commitments I just didn't have time to deal with it. So feeling suitably guilty for the last few weeks I set about it swapping a load of parts and getting it ready for MOT. All new brakes were fitted...

    Hard drives wanted ASAP

    I need 4 (new) 3.5" IDE drives that I can have my sticky hands on by tomorrow morning. These are going into 1U linux firewalls so the spec can be anything from 40-250Gb but preferably all the same. I could theoretically use 2.5" drives but then I would need a method of mounting them and...

    Ouch :(

    Some of you here have met my wife Allison so this is slightly more personal to some on here. I had a call from her yesterday morning whilst I was working away - she had had a bit of an accident - turns out it was a little more serious than that. She had slid on ice (along with 4 others)...

    Technical/Tuning threads

    First point - this post is intended to be in no way critical, its purely an observation, There seem to be way too many political or plainly argumentative posts on here fuelled by the same bunch of antagonists, but little hard core tuning discussion :) Whilst there are a lot of MB specific...

    M104 HFM coilpack harness

    As above I need a section of loom for the coilpacks if anyone has it. I am quite happy to take a full engine harness - but it must be 100% spot on. Mine looked perfect right up to the point where it entered the engine inside the rubber insulation. I have the part number for the coil ends...
