    My S211 had its 'F' service today... All ok

    Same boat as me, I will go down the road of a S212 but will edge for a 250 this time but I want a facelift so that's at least another 3-5 years away.... Hopefully by then, the 280 will be fine) yours is a cracking example of the e estate and they are great all round cars bar the little issues...

    So the shed is back

    I think it will, I found it a little bouncy at first but after a couple of weeks the ride was firm and the handling so much better. You could always look at it is the sheds renaissance

    So the shed is back

    Sounds good, don't the springs take some time to bed in? I found that when I had h&r's fitted to my c320.

    Lower balljoint MOT fail

    Have to.... The work I now do falls within local licensing laws and the car is subject to an enhanced mot. Hence the power trip he has.

    Lower balljoint MOT fail

    Long standing reputation for poor attitude with customers, rumours are rife he likes to be pleased with presents as well as enjoying what supposed power he has. He has also allegedly been known to make comments about failing cars when in a bad mood.

    Lower balljoint MOT fail

    Same here, not sure but in the past a split was a fail and a crack was a pass? He's claiming the split is at the back..... I will be taking it back to him as the part is under warranty. It's not a dodgy garage, very by the book etc and they test the local buses etc. The guy is a first class...

    Lower balljoint MOT fail

    MOT tester failed my S211 today due to as he put the lower rubber being split. On examination, the rubber is not split but cracked and nothing that would cause grease to leak etc. Where do I stand with this? Can I contest? The joint was only changed in october last year.

    MPG quirk...

    Hmmm, I do also note that my gear changes can affect my mpg quite considerably which is why i always do the throttle reset thing which might be a placebo but I always feel a difference after its been done.

    Feeling a bit lonely now...

    Even beemers have their issues, a family member has a 320d which has just had a new steering rack fitted due to a common fault.... Just shy of the £1k mark to fit, then there's the swirl flap issue which,ok has been solved on facelift models but there's still a lot out there yet to go pop...

    Removal/install of parking sensor

    Anything I need to know? I understand that when in gear, the faulty sensor will make a clicking sound? is this correct? Do they turn a certain way? and do I have to use silicone when inserting the new one? and is it simply plug and play? I am pretty certain its a rear sensor, the fronts...

    Buying E320 cdi

    At a guess, 50MPH at 1000 rpm? for a long journey? which I rarely do. Best I have had is 44ish on a run to Birmingham crusing at around 80ish. Locally, I can drop down to the low 20s in heavy stop start traffic but average around the 29s in medium traffic. I am a bit dissapointed with the...
