Smallest cars 'worse for fuel economy' - Telegraph
Well, well, well.
What a revelation. Even more I guess when passengers, etc. are factored in.
So does that mean the CO2 figures will be wrong as well?
Well, dropped my car into the dealers for a Service B as it was due in a few hundred miles according to the computer. Didn't ask the price at the time just booked her in and dropped off on Sunday - expected it to be expensive though.
Today I got the phone call, booked in for a Service B...
By next week my car will have had the below big components installed new within a year. Can I expect anything else on the same scale or am I allowed to enjoy it now?

I understand airmatic can be funny, but likely no where near as...

Day Two..rest day in Bergen, Southern Germany (beautiful)
Had the pleasure of meeting KillerHERTZ over the weekend. He kindly let me have his old Exhaust from his Clk to help me replace my old rusty on on mine. I also got to have a good look at his fantastic CLS AMG. What a great looking car.
So thanks Karl, you have saved me a load of money...
I was driving my car quite hard when suddenly a big white smoke came from the back.
The smoke was so big that I blurred other cars behind me.
I checked underneath the car and I could see some oil along the exhaust pipe.
Any ideas would really help.
Finally found one that suited needs but within budget! Big Gertie is named in honour of SuzyCute's stoma (Little Gertie) :) In very good condition for the year (1981) It's a Talbot Autosleeper Talisman GL 2.5 diesel. Engine pretty industrial has to be said - does not even have power steering...
I've had a hankering for a Sunday car ever since I sold my SL, which was the car I most regret selling. I looked at BMW Z4s and sat in a few older ones and quite liked them.... until I tried to get in and out with the roof up !!!
So, as I'm too tall and fat to fit a Z4, after briefly...

This kit was fitted to my Mercedes CLK55 AMG W208. This kit will probably fit other Mercedes models but I can't confirm which models. This kit offers immense braking power and is a huge upgrade over the standard brakes.
The kit consists of Wilwood 6pot callipers &...
Just a quick post to say thank you to Matt at Rebellion for "Eurocharging" my c63 yesterday.
Nice bloke with a clear passion for making cars go faster :thumb:
The car now feels far more eager to be let loose and acceleration over 4000 RPM in 3rd and 4th is lovely. The exhaust was popping and...
I thought it was about time I posted on here and thanked Andy & Paul at EC for the work they have done for me over the last couple of months. Their hard graft and insightful approach is just what I needed after many frustrating and wasteful visits to MB with a couple of ongoing issues I had on...
Had my SL55 back at MSL this week.
New Mercedes brake discs and pads all round
New air filters
Custom exhaust incl. X pipe
Awesome service and good food as always :D
Met a couple of the forum guys there too.... good to see you chaps!
Acid even rung me up to make sure I...
As some of you know I had my e55 amg written off a week or two ago by being rear ended!
After arguing with the insurance (original offer was £5500) for the car, I got a payout I was happy ish with.
Today I went and viewed a black 2004 e55 amg, was happy with the car but as it wasn't far...
Hi could anyone point me in the best direction for a big power upgrade on my cls 55. In the past I have used DMS for my Porsche turbos and a Ferrari. I'm in Cheshire but don't mind travelling for the right place. Thanks in advance guys.
I have paid Kwik Fit £300 to repair my air con, it is still not working! They charged it first, £50,still not working. Took it back, their MASTER TECHNICIAN checked it and said a hose was faulty. He replaced it and charged it again,£250, still not working!They say they cannot sort it or refund...
Is it possible to replace the totally rubbish SatNav system with one that works and can mate up to the command screen ? I would rather use the Garmin that I dumped after three months of head banging frustration than the Mercedes Nav system. It annoys me to get the trusty TomTom out when my W211...
'd like to offer a hearty "Thank You" to the driver of this BMW who decided to cause a huge hold up on the NCR at Staples Corner this morning, with his novel approach to parking.

Over the past week my internet speed has been dropping, until last Friday it was 1-1.25Mb on an alleged 60Mb feed.
My dear friends at NTL, with unusual haste, sent an "engineer" out yesterday. He fiddled around a bit, went off to the box housing the cable end, came back fiddled some more and...
