    "Interesting" news for European owners of recent Mercedes diesel cars!

    Hi, Looks like Mercedes are going to "do a VW" - to their European diesel cars - to fix the emissions! Software emissions fix for three million Mercedes diesels - BBC News Let's hope it doesn't damage the performance, MPG or reliability of the cars that get updated! Cheers Steve

    Emissions - seeming anomaly

    Looking at emissions that DVLA have recorded on my C - Class, I was surprised at how high they are - Have DLVA made an error?? The car is an S204 C320 Sport CDI (AMG) with mixed 18" wheels 2009 - it's emissions are shown at 209 g /km, which seems high. Given that my old 2004 S211 E320 CDI...

    MOT Emissions failure

    Hi All, I've just heard back from my wife and the 124 has failed it's MOT on emissions. She has sent me a photo of the results (attached) and it has failed on the lambda reading. My thought is that the O2 sensor has to be the obvious candidate. What do the more technically astute of you think...

    Daimler Launches Emissions Probe in the U.S

    Saw in the FT online that Daimler has launched a probe into emissions in the U.S, at the request of the Department of Justice.

    MOT Emissions advice please.

    Afternoon all. Recently had the exhaust replaced on the 230k with a straight through stainless job, including (stupidly?) a cat delete. Just got the car back from the garage and somewhat unsurprisingly the car failed on emissions. However, it didn't fail by much at all. Predictably it...

    Chip tuning emissions

    After the VW scandal and the subsequent Witch hunt that will ensue, I wonder how long it will be before chip tuners come under scrutiny of the authorities and how much MOT testers will have to pay to upgrade equiptment.

    E55 speed vs emissions - a dilemma...

    The W210 E55T (well, mine, anyway) seems to have a 'sweet spot'. Hypothetically, I recently did a 256-mile journey, which I normally do at an indicated 75 mph (yes, I'm a bad person. Stop reading now...), going (traffic permitting) rather faster than usual (my wife was unwell, and needed to be...
