    My E320 CDI aka The Dad Tank

    So, I was using a Saab 9-3 as my daily car but having caught the Merc bug from my CLS I decided I wanted some daily Mercedes action. I had a bit of a hunt on Autotrader and this example came up fairly local. It’s an early 2003 and had 104k on the clock. Full service history, overall...

    Protecting the A-Class Grenade a.k.a Automatic gearbox

    Guys, I was wondering if there's any voodoo procedure, or even normal maintenance, or anything really, that one can do to make sure the W168 A-Class' automatic gearboxes stay intact. My box has had a recent something-something-something done to it for £2k, and I'm hoping that it would be...

    Bag of spanners (aka my 300d engine) sorted!

    My w124 300td engine sounded like a bag of spanners crossed with some angry typists and a nail gun. It smoked quite badly, and it was weeping oil from the head gasket around the chain cover. I did a diesel purge with 1l of "diesel purge" which quietened the engine quite a bit - it sounded great...

    Ian Wright (AKA IAN WALKER)124 Works A Service+

    I had a trip to see Ian Walker at 124works earlier this week, around 60 miles from where I live, for an A service. Ian and his apprentice (seems very competant for a "young un") carried out the service which I am pleased with. There is a difference in dealing with these guys as opposed to...

    Arwen aka Carol

    Carol has sadly moved on from her Mercedes days. Her beloved 190E has blown its engine big time. The cost of the repair to her is more than the car is worth. So we did a deal. She has moved up in the world and is now the proud owner of a Suzuki Baleno :rolleyes:. Just thought I would share...

    traffic police shift - aka holding on to grab handle with sweaty palms

    I thought I’d post some ramblings on here about my shift with traffic police yesterday (1300-2300 shift). I’ll try and keep it informative but not too specific for obvious reasons. Arrived at 1300, had a brief hello with the people I didn’t already know, and we had a quick look at cars...

    Rate my Bottle (aka how old is this ale?)

    Howdy! A very off topic one tonight... As some of you know, I work in a very old building full of creepy nooks and crannies... I was crawling in one of the lofts, worrying about the possibility of asbestos and beehives (or asbestos mutated bees...) and I stumbled across this bottle...

    It's Swarfega Time! (aka where does the pollen filter go?)

    So it's that time of the year again... the sun is bright, the weather warm, the birds chirp merrily... and I'm stuck under my car, my every pore sweating swarfega through the grease and grim while I try to figure out why I'm doing this... This weekend I managed to change the fuel filter, oil...

    UCI - Universal Customer Interface aka SL65 ipod.

    Mercedes Benz has launched the much delayed UCI module. This hardware is designed for the MOST bus which has been used in cars since 2002, with the E-Class as the first variant. This range includes SL R230, CL W215, and S W220 which have seemingly been left out of the iPod craze. In 2008 all...
