    Loading bay rules

    I received a parking ticket whilst unloading my 1990 250TD which was in a loading bay. It was for being an incorrect type of vehicle. The rules are that only "motor vehicles and trailers constructed for the carriage of goods" are allowed to stop in loading bay. I want to argue that my 1990...

    How do I route a wire from engine bay into footwell?

    What is the best, i.e. the safest, way to route an electric wire from the engine bay of 2006 W169 into the driver's footwell? Is there an existing conduit I can just slide an extra wire through? I'm fitting DRLs to my A200, and don't really fancy damaging anything in the process :crazy:
