OK so some plank drove into my E430 estate at the weekend and has broken the front bumper and left a very deep sharp scar on the front wing that will I think require replacement.
The car has done 105,000, is a pretty decent car really has full good history and I guess has quite a lot of life...
Done a small how-to on replacing the head gasket on a horizontally mid-engined 11ltr bus. Just incase you ever need to know :dk:

Gimme replacing the HG on one of these over a W124 300D anytime :crazy:
Last weekend I drove approx 700miles around the country...I never had any close calls, or any incidents, until....... I was within 0.5miles of my home in North London!
I'm driving at about 20-25mph going up hill. There is a large double decker bus in front of me. It signals to stop at a Bus...
There i was in Chelsea (London, for those people who live north of Marble Arc :) ) parked waiting for a client when this very nice W126 560 SEL pulled up along side me, he had stopped to park in a bay on the other side of the road.
I was watching him reversing from my mirror when i noticed...
I got a code reader for my 2001 w203, when i plug it in all i get is "err" something to do with the protocol is not compatible. The seller has told me that the controller is not can bus enabled and if the car is it wont work. Are all w203 can bus enabled ?
Aston Martin have just jointly won a competition to design a new RouteMaster bus for London. http://www.channel4.com/4car/news/news-story.jsp?news_id=18519
Should be pretty sleek for commuters :cool: - pity they will always be in the workshop being sorted.:rolleyes:
handy just for taking rubbish to the dump!
This little gadget will allow you to fit a Can Bus Comand unit into a non Can bus Car. It provides a can bus signal to the comand unit so it doesn't shut off after 30 mins and also enables autodimming when you switch on your lights. It also connects the speed signal (Apin1 to C2pin6) but you...
One for the traffic gurus on the site.
One of my drivers got caught in a bus lane on 20th May 2008.
Today is the 5th June, so that's 16 days.
Does the 14 day rule apply to these fines from Harrow council too?
The PCN issue date is the 3rd June, but I got it in the post 5 minutes ago.
As the title suggests, I received a penalty charge notice (with photographs) of me cutting the end of the bus lane to take the left turn road. No buses anywhere, no chance of holding one up, but the photo shows I was in the lane for 5 seconds. I imagine there's no point in contesting it, but...
Daily Mail columnist, Tom Utley, laments the decision by Lambeth Council for fining him £120 for driving in a bus lane. In his article he says:"The true blame lies with sloppy legislators - we have far too many laws and they are far too complex - and with the police and Crown Prosecution...
Looking for the mercedes CAN bus message table data for new model sprinter.
As far as I know the message tables are different to the PSM module messages which the body builders use.
It is a long shot I know but anybody got this info ?
I've got myself a Command Head Unit Part Number A208 820 40 89. Which I would like to install in my 98 CLK320. The thing is my car doesn't have Can Bus and I certain the unit I have does. I've read Flyer's How to install and in that he has a Can Bus interface which appears to convert the...
