    Leather dying and conditioning

    So after quite a lengthy journey over the past 13 months my R129 is in pretty damn good shape now but I would like to colour in the wear on the drivers seat bolster. I'd also like to clean and condition the leather if that's possible with the coated leather. I was going to buy it all from...

    '08 E350 petrol - Too Cool Runnings (or watching the thermostat dying...)

    The new (to me) E350 runs at 80 degrees on the coolant temperature gauge, not 100 like the E55Ks. It seems to take longer to come up to temp than the E55Ks, too, but I had assumed that it was just that it read differently. Not so... Sunday morning, trundling along at 50(ish) mph in the long...

    W204 Stop/Start gradually dying.

    210 door mirror dying or sick?

    My drivers side door mirror has been a bit off colour recently and i wonder what's up with it? At first, there was a thin portion along the top edge that didn't reflect too well. It looked as if the mirror film might be delaminating from the glass. But this has now spread, and there appears...

    Are Large Capacity Petrols A Dying Breed

    Now, before you V8 boys attempt to sniff out something in my thread that's not there, let me tell you I scan the trade most weeks, looking at S212 E63's and waiting until the time/spec is right for me. However, there are 3.0 twin turbo diesels producing in excess of 300bhp now and (being...

    Dying the fabric in the door cards

    When I bought my 1994 250D last month I wasn't that keen on the garish colour of the door cards. The combined effect gave the door panel a pinkish look which is not for me. :o So I bought some Rust-Oleum vinyl & fabric spray paint today from B&Q. I had seen some scary videos on Youtube of...

    Key fob dying

    Well, pushed the button to open my car and "nothing." Couldn't unlock the car! It did eventually open though so off I went on my journey. Locked it again at other end, then when leaving, couldn't get in for ages. It just would not work. I presume it is the battery..... So now my car is...
