    :eek: Hello :eek: I have just bought (2 Months ago) a Purple Vito LWB 2.2Diesel. (160k) My plan is to convert it to a day bus, while still keeping the van as a van for other projects that include window cleaning and gardening. So far so good, apart from needing new Brakes on the front and...

    Hi from Brighton.

    I just bought my first ever Mercedes. A C class 1.7 petrol automatic. It had 81400 on the clock, and for 10 years old, still drives wonderfully. I'm trying to put photos up, but for some reason it's not letting me. Anyway, she's had a real good run out (as as result of the Christmas engineering...

    Car aircon - recommendation, Brighton area?

    My OTHER little cherub (only he's not so little now) has duff aircon on his Peugeot. He's tried the main dealer, who supposedly topped it up (but it still isn't working) and said they could not find a leak. Funny that; I topped it up about a year ago, and it was fine for about a month, then it...

    Star diagnostics - Brighton or surrounding areas?

    I need to stick my car on a Start diagnostic machine but i'm being quoted £110 minimum by Mercedes. Does anyone know of an independent that has the kit? Anywhere near the M23 will do, or down as far as Eastbourne to the East or Worthing to the West. Had a look on Google but it's needle and...

    Rivervale MB Servicing, Brighton. Any good?

    I've got to book a 'B' Service in the next couple of weeks. I have spoken to my local MB dealership and they want £815 inc VAT for an SL. I spoke today with Rivervale Cars, in Portslade, Brighton; they want £455 for a B service; quite a difference! More importantly, they are an 'Approved MB...

    Very hot day yesterday on Brighton seafront. The Speed Trials started half an hour later after, sadly, a stabbing on Madeira Drive at 0240 closed the road and caused havoc with competitor access. The organising club, Brighton & Hove Motor Club, did a great job to drag the event back on schedule...
