    W208 CLK230 Kompressor (1998) lazy at mornings

    I think it maybe slightly over fueling to heat the cat up. After a minute or two it should be gone. Youĺl soon get use to it.

    W208 CLK230 Kompressor (1998) lazy at mornings

    I think the ignition timing is advanced slightly as well while the cars warming up, so it sometimes sounds noiser, like the exhaust is blowing slightly

    Battery connected to wrong terminals

    Because we all make the occassional silly mistake, most manufactures design in measures to protect the car from us! so hopefully it won't be too serious. When you try and start the car the ecu checks a number of things first such as the cars in park, key fob security, etc You'll really need to...

    Question - Removing Battery

    When removing the battery on a 1999 SLK 230K - other than needing the radio code is there anything else required? For example, some Fords need the red master key. Also, will it clear the fault codes in the ecu? Thanks

    M11 - A120 Junction Speed Trap

    Got caught yesterday doing 70+mph in a 50mph :doh: O.K. - I was speeding, therefore it's my fault ............ but what a place for a speed trap! For anyone who knows the area, I was heading north up the M11 and taking the direct feed onto the A120 East bound. The feed over the M11 junction...

    S600 - Zoiks!

    Note 100% feed back for past 12 months but check out feedback on the ebay account. Always worth arranging a visit on something like this, probably a good deal but get the confidence from having a look first.

    Chinese in central London

    We stayed at Radisson Hampshire right on Leicester square, quite expensive but very good. After a couple of drinks around Covent Garden and Piccadilly we headed off in search of a chinese, checking out those we'd been recommended. Although the reviews of Yauatcha were good, we decided to see...

    Chinese in central London

    Thanks for all the recommendations and comments above. The plan is to arrive mid afternoon and take a wander round. Sticking to central London and looking at various reviews online, Fung Shing in Lisle Street, Gerrards Corner, Haozhan, all look like they'll suit our tastes. But we never know...

    Chinese in central London

    Desperate need to impress the Mrs, so booked a decent (hopefully) hotel in central London but with so many Chinese restaurants to choose from in the China Town area and Soho, etc, does anyone have any recommendations? Would prefer walking - strolling distance from Leicester square. Any help...

    "Bulb failed" light illuminating when no bulbs are out, S124

    I had a similar problem, luckly mine was an easy fix, I just took out the bulbs and cleaned up the points of electrical contact. Worth gently tapping the lights to see if any flicker due to a poor contact. I found that the warning light would stay on even if the bulb worked after a while...

    Modified car insurance?

    As above, Admiral, just click on all the mods you've got. My previous car had several mods but it made very little difference with Admiral insurance. I am older, so that obviously helps. Really worth it in the event of an accident and it's obvious (body kit - wheels) that the cars not standard.

    No problem with mine but no difference in performance. If you go for a K&N, remind anyone doing servicing in the future not to change them!
