    It is a 2007 E class 320 cdi estate. The longest pipe is heavily corroded at the rear O/S and needs replaced. I have taken off the covers and see that it is only the last two feet of pipe that has any corrosion. The rest is as new but appears to be one piece from the flexi-hose at the rear...

    '08 211 3.5 CGI - Which spark plugs?

    The last owner of my latest car had a 'B' service done in October, but saved a few pennies by omitting the spark plug and brake fluid changes. The only spark plugs I can find for the car are Bosch; does anyone's experience recommend using anything else?
