    People are so dumb.

    Just removed the awful plate holders and metal pressed plates and found some numpty has just drilled the front one into the bumper, making a right mess. Going to have to be a Chipsaway repair I reckon. I`ve "touched up" for now till I can get it done properly!!

    Noob here so apologies for sounding dumb

    I've not been a car owner for very long but i bought a C Class in December and am smitten. The wheels are tired and I'm thinking about either refurbing them or buying new ones. What are the sizes I need to look for? I literally have no idea. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Meanwhile in Kent- The clever dumb balance theory is tested again

    A man had a lucky escape after he used a petrol-soaked rag to light a bonfire - and created a fireball. He then accidentally kicked over a petrol can and the fire spread to decking and an outhouse. Two fire engines from Dartford and one from Thames-side were called to a garden in Button...

    Dumb people...is there any hope for them?

    I'm currently selling a car on e-bay and got the following question "Hi I am interested in this car, but because I live in Belgium I need left-side wheel. Is the wheel on this car on the right side (UK) or on the left (Europe)?" Seriously, I do wonder about some people, a) being a UK...

    Dumb first question - how to work aircon in W210

    Hi everyone, sorry this is probably a bit of a stupid question but I've just got myself quite a decent old 1997 W210 E320 Avantgarde and although I'm assuming it has air conditioning I can't work out how to use it. My car has the simpler style of heater controls as shown here.... I'm...

    Dumb question: Brake Bleeding

    Hi, I have a RHD w124 and I'm going to tackle the servicing myself just because I like getting my hands dirty, and I'm budget :) I've got the Haynes and Brooklands manuals, and they state the bleeding sequence as: a) Right hand rear, b) Left hand rear, c) Right hand front, d) Left hand...

    Dumb blondes ...

    A blonde, wanting to earn some extra money, decided to hire herself out as a ‘handywoman’ and started to canvass a nearby well-to-do neighbourhood. She went to the front door of the first house, and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do. ‘Well, I guess I could use somebody...

    Dumb or not ?

    I heard on the French radio a few days ago that a British driver got done doing 142mph in his Ferrari, on his way to the Le Mans. The Gendarmerie gave him a on the spot fine and banned him from driving in France, living his wife to take over. Well, obviously undeterred by his experience, he was...

    Do I really look that dumb??

    In line with another current post by Gollom about tyre shine & its effects, I wonder if anyone else out there has had some dodgy sounding pearls of wisdom or fault diagnoses given to them about their car. To start the ball rolling my wife had an ageing Chevette some years ago and was informed...

    Really dumb thing - lost screw

    It appears that whilst putting some of the trim back together on my CLK (W209) I managed to drop a screw into the gear box selector :crazy: Whilst it doesn't appear to have caused any problems I am worried about it being in there! Any ideas how to get the thing out ? Is it likely to blow...

    Stupid, or Dumb? M5 Southbound, 0745

    There I am on my GSX-R1100 of 90's vintage, cruising at 85 in the outside lane passing the sleeping commuters being calmed into near coma by Radio 2, when a pikey looking Turquoise Shogun decides to drift from Lane 2 to Lane 3, he is almost on top of my heavily braking bike before the shock...

    Dumb question time

    Sorry guys, I know I said I'd try not to ask dumb questions BUT.... OK I have a 2001 CLK 230 Kompressor (6 spd manual) coming next week, I have done the deal with a 12 mth mechanical breakdown warranty which tbh is not exactly brilliant and has a £500 maximum claim limit, but as I was scared...

    Sorry if this is dumb

    When I start up my mums BMW 318 it idles without the rev counter moving in the slightest, when I start my C200, for the most part it is still but it occasionally sifts down and up very slightly. I didnt have my car from new and I dont remember if it was any different when I got it but I am...
