    Cracking up :)

    So, my SL was in for its annual service yesterday with Mercedes Maidstone. Half way through the day I got a call to tell me the service was done but would I like them to replace the cracked additional brake light in the boot lid. Cracked? I just washed the car on Sunday and didn't notice a...

    Engine warning light - no message.

    Maidstone Mercedes were very helpful and booked the car in today for a while you wait slot. They had it all sorted in just under 2 hours. It turns out the faults were related. Apparently the ECU takes input from the external temperature sensor to assist with setting the right mixture. It also...

    Engine warning light - no message.

    Thanks Keith, I agree. I've driven the car again today. It's starting 100% normally, running the same and I can't tell anything is wrong except for the light. I guess I'm just a little worried as the worst thing that could happen is it breaks down on the way to my dads funeral.

    Engine warning light - no message.

    Don't know if these are related... 2007 SL350 (R230). A few weeks ago I noticed the dash was displaying external temps much above reality (for example today it showed 18 degrees). Unfortunately my dad died the week before last and so I've had other things on my mind. Today, while...

    Steer by wire being fitted by Nissan soon

    Maybe it's an urban myth but I thought BMW fitted a steer by wire system to the 7 series back in 2000 or so.

    The Official Gucci & Burger DB5 1:8 model thread

    It certainly wasn't easy to fit it all together. I think I tried and failed to fit the front about 20 times but in the end, on one attempt, it just fitted in place. If the doors are binding then clearly it's not in the right place as once it is, at least on mine, the doors fit very well. Make...

    Welcome. I'll be very interested in your impressions of the car as I'm considering changing my 2007 SL for a new SLK55.

    The White Dog

    Sorry to read all this Rashman. First and foremost I hope the dog makes a full recovery. Knowing how much you care about your car, I don't have any doubt that it will be repaired to perfection but I hope the process isn't too drawn out for you with availability of parts etc. Unlike others here...

    Faulty NTG1 Comand?

    I don't know about the MCar unit so can't comment. How is the phone connected? To the same unit? As for DVD's I haven't had any problems with home made DVDR's. I have many VBR MP3's and have burnt them as is. Sorry I can't be more help but delighted to help with the roof module. Mine continues...

    Faulty NTG1 Comand?

    What music source are you listening to? In my 2007 R230 with NTG1 I experience no such drop outs at any time. My iPhone is connected through a Viseeo MB2 via bluetooth and I mostly listen to an iPod playing through a Dension 500. The iPhone receives emails, texts etc. and the music never drops...

    You have a car sized display case in your very large room ...

    There isn't a car in the world that if I wanted to own it I wouldn't want to drive it so I guess the glass case would be useless to me :)

    Audemars Piguet Watch....Real or Fake

    I would say it's definitely a fake because of the thickness of the AP. On the genuine ones this is much thinner. Also, in your pictures, although I appreciate it could be the picture quality and lighting, I can't see the luminous edging to the digits that exists on the genuine watches.

    Anyone seen any good number plates on cars lately?

    I believe this turned out to be 'news' based on a comment made by an MP. There's a thread on Piston Heads about it together with a response from the DfT to someone there asking if it was real. No date has been proposed or announced from what I can read.
