    S212 Rear Lamp Cluster

    We have just had one of the rear lamp clusters changed after a collision with a digger. The indicator is showing a fault and after an initial momentary attempt to light does not. All over lamps operate as normal and the cluster is adjusting with the red lights flashing as it the fault. Do...

    Has anyone updated theirs and is it worth it or better to stick to google Maps on the phone? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I hate Mercedes

    I’ve had quite a few Mercedes, and quite a few big bills. I eventually swore off them and bought more reliable vehicles - Range Rovers. So I’m surprised to find this on my drive tonight. I think I need Mercedes Anonymous.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    SL Shop

    My father in-law has his SL in at the SL shop, started as a health check, his bill is now healthily into 5 figures. I thought these guys were reputable, but have seen a couple of posts on the net from less than happy customers. Would appreciate my mind being put at rest (hopefully).. Sent...

    C350e

    Chap I vaguely know has just celebrated his 50th day without his c350e I believe that he has been told that it needs a gearbox, but Mercedes appear to be unable to source one... For most of this time he has had a diesel Hyundai hire car. Not quite what he expected. His catalogue of missed...

    Golf... the VW kind.

    As some know I've had ups and downs over the years with my step-son. Today he turned 21, and has actually matured into a pleasant and hard working young man. My one frustration is his lack of driving... He now works for a major insurance company and gets 50% off his insurance. So time to...

    Driving Experience for kids...

    Thought I would put up a quick review of this after today's experience. If your kids are into cars it's a good treat.... Back before Christmas I came across an advert for a Youth Driving experience off road. I have a daughter who I thought might fancy a crack at that... Today was the...

    Time to move on...

    I joined this Forum on the 8th November 2007 - nearly ten year ago... In my time I have posted 4,677 times - I'm told averaging 1.39 posts per day. I came to the forum looking for practical advice. Which indeed is what I got from friendly knowledgeable folks. Since that time many of the...

    AA European Recovery

    Thought I'd write a little review, and maybe update as we go.... Friday, the day before we left for home from Southern France our car went into Limp Home mode once. Would not do it again, and nothing obviously wrong, we put this down to Landrover gremlins and the extreme heat. Left for Le...

    We need a Landrover sub-forum

    I've been chatting to a few people about Landrover / RangeRovers. It's clear that there are a fair few number of owners on here. It's even clearer that those who don't either look on and admire the bravery of us owners, or plan to be one themselves. Come on admin - let's have a sub-forum...

    Reconditioned Turbo's? Are these as good as new or just a way of putting off the really bad news? Cheers and regards David

    Bye Bye Merc, Hello Volvo....

    Well Merc have finally persuaded me that running an older car is a bad idea. Picked up a New XC60 D4 SE Nav earlier this week. Early impressions are very positive. Quiet, refined, quick enough, comfortable and great stereo. Averaging 42.5 mpg so far with less than 700 miles on the clock...

    Three days and no merc....

    I think my most recent mercedes has had an effect that no other Mercedes has ever had. It's killed my affection for the brand... It's been three days since it went and I have not missed it at all, even when down to a 1.0 focus hire car. It's also cured me of my shed credentials as on Tuesday...

    What next....

    This time has come to contemplate my next car change. While I like the C320, it has it's weaknesses and yesterday fully outed these. Top Top - off roading in a C320 is not perfect. Sadly it seems that my clients are incapable of letting me know about fords and gravel farm tracks in advance...

    Fiscon

    I'm a little sad to be writing this post as the system had such potential.... Richard first mentioned Fiscon as a way of introducing iPod and car kit in what appears to be an oem way from the head until. Problem was the cost at around £450. Before committing to that I did a little research...

    Free Hotel Room in Dover 10/12

    After booking and paying for a hotel room in Dover for tomorrow night, I now find that I have to be somewhere else at 9AM Thursday which means I can't use the room. Premier Inn at Dover so nothing fancy, but I'v stayed there before and it's not a bad hotel with a decent Table Table attached...

    Boost Pressure Regulator Fault

    My car has had a scan and the mysterious Boost Pressure Regulator Fault has re-appeared. This interlinks with sharp rev changes at higher revs (not gear changes) and most recently limp home. I'm thinking that variable vanes on Turbo or the actuator are seizing? 1. Am I likely to be...
