    BMW vs MB

    Having decided to complete the German treble after owning a MB and an AUDI I purchased an e65 7 Series BMW :ban:. I wanted to ask the people in the friendly MBClub why oh why parts are so expensive for parts compared to MB? Surely they are both premium German ubercruisers but the different...

    Well Autotrader - W220

    Back to the W220 then. I really fancy it but the guy keeps forgetting to send me the MOT certificate or V5 numbers so I can do a check on past MOTs. Interesting the add has changed tone a bit. I am even considering an E60 530d these days - sigh

    SPX anyway of knowing which? Or when I go an check it out how would I check if they are on the way out? I have come across putting soapy water over and letting it run and see if bubbles arise. I really like the S Class too more than the E class. Found a few german companies that manufacture...

    Ah fair enough. Coupled with the dealer only accepting cash not cards and him wanting it gone kinda put me off it even to though I would love an S Class

    W211 or W220

    I am thinking of spending between £3000 to £3500 to come back to MB ownership but trying to get a diesel 270 or 320. So far no luck in finding one with SatNav, leather and reasonable condition but I have found a W220 (s320) which ticks the boxes. What are your thoughts on pros and cons...

    Coming back to MB - W211

    After a long pause driving some nice reliable cars like the Lexus and some bonkers like an RX-8 finally subsiding with an Audi A3 S-Line Diesel :fail (which has been a money bit) I decided that I really miss the star on the bonnet and the friendly forum community. I want to buy a W211...

    Michael_Schumacher crashes!

    Just a question, but do you feel empathy for Joseph Mendele too? By your logic when Ian Huntley was thrown boiling water we should have the same empathy because both are hurting. Status and past life are very important, a good man/woman is worth more than a scumbag in my opinion.

    Michael_Schumacher crashes!

    Apples and Oranges I am afraid. One excelled at a legitimate activity bringing joy to many in the process, the other excelled at a criminal activity bringing misery to a few (his own family included whom he abandoned in Australia to save his own skin). Lack of empathy for one is quite...

    Russian recipient of Order of Lenin Dies

    To fair Markjay he invented a rifle to better equip his comrades while fighting the nazis. Just because it has been a thorn in the West's ass for over 60 years is not his fault. He didn't make any money, sell it to enrich the Soviet union. How is he different to Oppenheimer or any other...
