NS washer, wiper and windscreen washers and wiper all working normally. I always imagined the whole...

    R129 side plastics remove / replace

    Thanks for the tips, Grober. I guess I should arm myself with a load of replacement clips before I start.

    R129 side plastics remove / replace

    Procured some new (to me) side plastics for my 97 500. My wife has the car at work today, so haven't had a chance to look at how to remove the old ones yet. Any pointers to help with their removal without doing enormous damage to my car?

    Go during the night. Much less stressful. I'd leave London at 9pm.

    K11 NGY - CL63 AMG driven by an idiot

    Maybe I got the number slightly wrong. It was messed with after the 'K' and the car was travelling pretty fast. Definitely K something NGY.

    K11 NGY - CL63 AMG driven by an idiot

    On the M1 last Saturday, don't think I've ever seen a car driven more aggressively or with less thought for anyone else on the road. Tailgating to within a few inches of the car in front, undertaking at every opportunity and not really getting anywhere in the process. Well done, 'KUNGY' -...

    Shopping for R129 - advice please....

    The only time I've calculated the MPG for my car (97 500, 90k-ish miles at the time) was after a 1300-mile trip around the UK at Christmas last year. Mix of motorway, town, A- and B-road driving produced 24mpg. The car lives most of its life in the city, however, and consumption is doubled, at a...

    R129 electric aerial issue

    Stuck halfway, won't park or extend fully. Still getting reception, though. Tried a bit of WD40 but no dice. I can hear it trying to work and it kind of wobbles, but still it stays. Very annoying. Any ideas?

    Leonard Cohen at MBworld!!!!

    Only those who've never actually listened to Laughing Len dismiss him as 'un-cheerful.' His songs are laced with fantastic black humour. I saw him play in Brighton in December and it was one of the best gigs I've ever seen. Pure class.

    It's beautiful, but I was there on a Sunday, to see Kraftwerk at the steelworks, and the city was pretty-much closed. Off to see them at the VW Autostadt in Wolfsburg this Saturday - two shows, 8pm and midnight.

    R129 front bumper question

    1995 320 bumper - is it the same as that on a 1997 500? If not, how different is it and will it fit?

    SL or SLK ???

    It always irks me when the MX-5 is described a 'hairdressers' car'. It's not difficult to understand that it's one of the best-handling cars of all-time, and a superb enthusiasts' car is it?

    SL or SLK ???

    I found a panoramic roof for mine on eBay in February. Got it for a song, too. The vendor's SL600, same colour as mine, had been in the dealership for work to the adaptive damping (what else?) While in, there was a fire in the workshop which destroyed his car and a few others. He got a...
