    HID Downgrade? Another daft question...

    Anyone know if it's easy to "downgrade" from factory HIDs in my W220? It's a '99 model, and has just the dipped beam as HIDs, not a bi-xenon model. What I wanted to investigate - is it possible to retrofit some after-market headlamp assemblies, and either incorporate the factor HIDs into them...

    Daft question... What colour is my W124

    It's bodywork time soon hence I'm ordering some kurust, filler, primer and paint. It's mainly the front arches though there are a couple of other spots here and there. My plan is to use a dremel to grind out the rust and get down to bare metal, kurust, prime and then paint, however I've no...

    Possibly A Daft Question But...

    ...you don't know until you know... Where is the best place to set a pair of axle stands under the front of my S212, so I can remove both of the front wheels to sort out a painted finish on the disc hubs?

    A daft snow tyre experiment....

    I've never understood all the fuss about winter tyres, partly because in bucks, we only get bad snow and ice for a week at the most. During the past few winters using carefull driving, I have been able to get around perfectly fine with my all season contis. The only time I have got stuck, is...

    W140 - a daft idea as a daily drive

    Mercedes-Benz S320 (W140) For Sale (1997) on Car And Classic UK When my E36 goes into the garage for the winter I'll be needing some wheels. Just watched Transporter and found myself thinking how good those black S Classes looked. Mind you, his 7 series BMW was nice too. Am I deluded...

    Polybelt tension (daft question)

    The instructions for removing/replacing the polybelt suggests holding off the tensioner with a 5mm pin or drill but I cannot see a hole. Access to get a good look is not easy. I would be grateful for a clue where to look! Thanks (R129 SL500)

    What a daft way to put an S Class off the road!

    Has anyone ever popped their boot lid with the key ... only to find the key won't then come out? This doesn't seem to be a freezing problem but, nevertheless, I've pumped as much de-icer and WD40 past the key as possible - and warmed it with a hair drier, but the lock just won't give it back...

    Daft question about W/S button

    OK, This might seem like a daft question, because I'm sure that mose MB owners know the answer to this already. What does the W/S switch next to the auto shifter on my CLK do. I'm guessing its for switching the shifting program of the auto, but I cannot really feel any difference whether its...
