    car storage bubble

    Alabassi I have a garage that is ancient with old, flaky lime-rendered walls. Having just spent £30,000+ on car restoration I don't want it covered in crud the moment I park it up. So not for anti-corrosion purposes, really I want one to save me washing it all the time and protecting the value...

    car storage bubble

    Thank you was not aware carcoon had a framed version, so they are a) added to my list and b) adding to confusion.

    car storage bubble

    Hi All Anyone with experience of the different types of storage bubble? STrikes me you have the Carcoon etc which are frameless and I'm not keen on because they drape over the car then inflate; the Airflow type which are all transparent PVC with a slim frame and the Cair-O-Port which looks a...

    W124 260E

    That was mine. I bought it unseen at auction where they said 'as close to immaculate as you can expect at this age' or some such guff. Well, guess what - 2 repaired crusty wings and a repaired door skin sorted most of the rust along with a resprayed bonnet to remedy the laquer disappearing and...

    the first car was for sale with a guy I know who must have passed it on in the trade. The shutlines around the bonnet/headlamos made me think it had a bump at some stage.

    [SOLD] bluetooth modules

    I have 2 bluetooth modules that I've used in various e class and s class over the years. I see they do not share the same part number which might be why one of them wouldn't work when I swapped cars. Anyway one of them is definitely working and the other might or might not. Dont really want...

    w222 s class headlights

    I am looking to take my W222 to France and register it there. It has ILS so I can set the beams to flat for driving in Europe. Does anyone know if this is likely to pass/get me a carte grise or do you think I will need to change headlights (in which case I think I'll sell it before I go!)

    w126 560 US spec

    Thanks chaps, this is a very low mileage car so the consideration is in not buggering about with it too much. Freer flowing exhaust is one thing but compromising matching numbers or blowing it would not be avenues I'd want to go down. Think the answer is to say it's never going to be nippy...

    w126 560 US spec

    Thanks Alabassi. I guess a free-er flowing exhaust may get back 10 or 20 missing horses. Forgive my total ignorance but there's a compression issue too, can I overcome that or is this 'baked in' to the engine and insurmountable?

    w126 560 US spec

    Hi all looking at a US 560sel 1987. I understand these are down to c. 230BHP from 300BHP from the Euro spec ones. Anything one can do to get them back up?

    E55 on "the market"

    You're all right. It's mine (as is the SL500). The E55 is sublime and far and away the best I have seen. Epic history, too.

    SL500 on "the market"

    This SL on The Market is mine. I can confirm the car is very very good. Best SL I've had.

    Coronavirus: What happens to auction prices for an SL55 when there's a public health scare?

    the black one had a non-functioning roof which must take 2 or 3 grand off it surely

    W222 owners

    Thank you. Yes I think my days of wanting a drivers car day to day are gone. I used to have a sports ars@ to fit a sports seat. My derriere is now comfort spec and a confort seat fits it rather better! Was hoping for 35+ and I think that's OK. Its only a bit worse than the c350e I have now...

    W222 owners

    Please may I ask w222 owners what I can expect mpg-wise from a 500 vs 350d on a 500 mile autoroute run. I'm not talking a blat across Europe but a 130 kmh cruise on cruise control all the way. I do so hate diesel, I am sure if it has to be diesel the w222 will hide it admirably but I am so...

    E55 estate

    Hi Bug4Life yes I have found myself with too many cars (again), a spare warehouse and have thus decided to trade some. That said this was bought by me in 2018 to use when my horrid lease C350e goes back (I bought it way too early but it was just such a great car). Thing is I just can't bring...

    Buying a Mercedes and others saying that you are "rich."

    I never actually said the cars enrich my life. In fact I am not sure they do.......

    Buying a Mercedes and others saying that you are "rich."

    A full tummy every night, a warm home, the world's best dog (sorry everyone but my dog IS the best) and a happy marriage. I can't imagine being richer. How much money do I have? Irrelevant.
