    Footman James/ W124

    I'm trying to get a W124 covered by Footman James, but apparently, this isn't something that they can cover as it doesn't fall into the criteria, and doesn't allow them to process it on their system :wallbash: Spoke to two different people with the same outcome! A friend of mine has had a 124...

    Machine Polisher Issue

    Good Morning All, I've had a DAS6 for a number of years, and it's not really seen any use.... I thought i'd give the car a once over today, but when switching the polisher on, the power is fine, but as soon as i touch the pad on the car, it loses most of it's power.....I'm not putting too much...
