    W211 E320cdi springs/shocks shot or blame the bad roads?

    Gentlemen, Took my E Class Estate four-up on a run yesterday and couldn't help but thinking that the ride had got firmer since I bought it 3 years ago. 149,000 miles and by the look of the full MB history it's never had any suspension needed. Tyres are all good and balanced. Should I...

    I blame E55BOF I bought an Alfa 166 3.0 unseen

    Sorry E55BOF but your influence is spreading :D One of our regular vineyard customers came in today to pick up his Christmas order every time I see him I ask how the Alfa 166 languishing on his drive is doing. This time he said it has to go by Christmas (eviction notice from the household...

    Automated vehicles --the blame game

    With test trials of fully automated vehicles ongoing at selected locations in the UK a programme on the radio today posed some interesting questions. In the event of an accident between two automated vehicles who is to blame? The vehicle manufacturer or the driver/owner/occupier. It was...

    Not sure PSE Pump to blame but boot will not open at all.

    Good morning, Yesterday was a great day for to blast around with the top down. I took my SL (R230) for a run and parked up at a hotel. When I went to lock the car not much happened so I had to manually lock it. Unfortunately the cases were in the boot as I could not unlock it (even manually)...

    No one to blame but myself……….

    The other day whilst discussing my son's soon to be acquired new A-Class, I very foolishly said, in front of witnesses, that seeing as both me and my son had new vehicles, my wife could indeed have a car to replace her Saab. About thirty six hours later, there I was at the MB dealer, again...

    Insurance renewal - 42% increase for single 'no blame' claim made by named driver!

    The insurance is due on the SL shortly, so I rang Elephant to 'disclose' the incident Mrs BTB had in her car earlier in the year (somebody ran into the back of her Audi - all liability accepted by the other party and repairs paid for by their insurance). "No problem sir" said the man, "but...

    Blame culture.

    OK, so I read this a couple of times but I am not sure why NR are to blame here. I also see that virtually all the comments seem to agree... Tragic? Yes. NR's fault? Uh? Any ideas? Network Rail Charged Over Teenagers' Deaths - Yahoo!

    A frustrating day and partly ECP to blame!

    I ordered Pagid front discs, front and rear pads and wear sensors from Euro Car Parts recently and today decided to fit them. All went well, I quickly had the front caliper and carrier stripped off, cleaned and ready when I unpacked the new pads to find that they are rectangular and the...
