    W205 C Class - Bridgestones changed to Michelins

    With 16,000 miles on the car, the tyres were down to 3.5mm fronts & 3mm rears. Original set and they were Bridgestone Potenza S001 MOE (Run Flats) on 18" rims. Although all four still had a reasonable amount of life left in them, they were getting much noisier and really crashing on bumps...

    In the last couple of weeks I've been made aware of car thefts via key thefts from property, including a neighbour, a cousin, and an E63 owner. All were stolen by crooks snapping the Eurocylinder locks on front/patio/rear doors, where the locks can be snapped in seconds, before entering the...

    Finally changed my door lock pins!

    Probably should have gone for the AMG originals but choked at paying £80 :( These were only £20 for the set and look fine to me ;)

    Freshly changed oil this dirty ??

    Driven my c63 10 miles back from a service and the oil seems filthy. My experience of fresh oil changes is its a golden brown colour. The attatched pic is a dab of fresh mobil 1 and the other dab is my "freshly renewed "Mobil 1 oil. Does this seem right ?I would welcome your opinions. Thanks

    In the past I've had two bad experiences with puncture repair sealant as supplied with my W205. In both cases the puncture was too large to be sealed and the tyres had to be scrapped. I understand that even if the sealant works most tyre repairers won't repair the tyre. Therefore I'm vaguely...
