    CLS Specifications

    Hello all, Some of you may remember me, I've not been around a lot for a few years, but thinking of coming back to the fold. I'm hoping someone can help me out with equipment (standard and optional) for a 2011/12 CLS. I'm looking for one at the moment, and the variation in equipment...

    Hello, it's me again. Long time no speak! Anyway, we've recently picked up a W209 320cdi Sport, and I have a couple of questions for the learned masses. 1. The handbook says I have to go to a dealer to switch the bi-xenons over for driving on the continent (which is where it will spend...

    Campervan Party?

    Driving up the A605 this morning into Peterborough, I must have passed more than thirty campervans, or all shapes and sizes coming the other way. Only a couple of caravans though. Was there a party this weekend, or were they just evacuating?

    Images Question

    It seems to me that some images on my PC, when enlarged, go pixellated, whilst some don't. Is this down to the type of image file (and if so which ones give the 'smoothest' edges) or is it down to the original size of the image? Or is it something else... TIA PJ

    Stretching Tyres?

    Why do people stretch tyres? Is it because they can't afford the correct width for their wheels, or for some dynamic reason? TIA PJ

    Win XP Users

    We have a desktop pc with XP Home, and two users, me and Mrs Doofus. We use fast user switching. Today, Mrs D told me that although I was logged on, she wasn't and couldn't. When you clicked on her avatar, the screen flickered, and returned to the logon screen. So I rebooted the pc, and...

    Is it the case that some LEDs emit noticeable heat? I have an application for which I need six LEDs (probably 3mm, maybe 4) mounted 20mm apart in an aluminium panel, and faced with clear acrylic (8mm x 130mm), such that the LEDs will touch the acrylic. I am hoping (yet to be tested) that...

    GRP Advice

    I have a fibreglass panel 60cm x 120cm (3mm thick), and I need to cut it lengthways. The cut is curved. So far, it seems the best method is a Dremel, but I could do with some advice. Is it best to cut wide of the line and then sand back to the mark? If so, what should I use for sanding...

    I thought I wanted acrylic, but it seems I might not. I need rigid plastic sheets, probably in white (colour is probably irrelevant as it'll be painted), about 5mm thick, which isn't as brittle as perspex. I had in mind the kid of stuff that Fire Exit signs and the like are printed on...
