    Turbo replacement

    I have a new turbo (remanufactured) going on to my E320 cdi on Monday. Any tips on anything else that should be done at the same time? I've got the gaskets of course, and ordered the oil pipes. Anything to watch out for? Cheers, Bozman

    2003 E320 CDI - Extremely high spec

    Due to a temporary cashflow issue, I may have to consider selling my E320. It would be an extremely reluctant sale, since the car is incredible and I love it. Specification is the highest I've ever seen (and I've had several Range Rover Supercharged). It boasts at least £13k worth of...

    Stopping for puddle

    Driving home the other night, I had cause to test the SBC system on my Merc! Driving along an A road in the dark, came across a car stopped dead in front of a puddle. No brake lights, no hazards. As I (just) pulled up behind him, he advanced cautiously into the puddle (probably wisely...

    W211 320 CDI Thermostat

    So I'm sure this is not a new topic. Been wondering why fuel economy was poor, and performance erratic, and suddenly twigged as I noticed that the water temp gauge was usually indicating around 60 max, when I guess it should be showing 90 degrees. So just a couple of questions, really for...

    New Merc - Got lucky with spec

    So I sold my E350, which was sad, but I needed to free up some cash, so I purchased a mega miles E320 cdi. It seems that I got lucky. When I say mega miles, it's scarcely run in at 185k (2002 car). I purchased it in a hurry yesterday. It was described by the seller as 'immaculate for...

    2005 E350 Avantgarde

    With extreme regret, due to loss of job, I have to offer my E350 for sale. It is a wonderful car, in great condition. It is what I'd call a 'mid facelift' car, in that in doesn't have the cosmetic facelift of 2006, but has the new engine and gearbox. To my mind it's a benefit that it still...

    Mcar first impressions

    So having got my Mcar unit fitted today, first impressions are very good. Whilst the user interface is not intuitive, it does interface well with the factory fitted components. Fitting it was a pain, and I almost regretted greatly not going for the fullly fitted option. It should really...
