After a bit of advice re. the above. SWMBO is starting to bang on about trimming the hedge in the back garden as it's untidy (read out of control). She's got a point, if I'm honest. Yew, I believe, and about 8 foot high - it needs a good 2 foot lopping off the top and both...
As referred in this fascinating thread: http://www.mbclub.co.uk/forums/engine/137448-7g-tronic-tiptronic-user-notes.html as well as the User Guide, the expected behaviour of the gearbox in Comfort mode is that it'll pull away in second gear rather than first.

Just a wondering. . .
A house move is taking me from a short cycle to work, to 63 miles each way. Running the C32 is going to cost a fortune, so ideally I'd like to change it for the moment, for a smaller engined model. Probably an oil burner, just for economy's sake whilst we get our feet...

This got me wondering.
I appreciate that diesel technology has come a long way over the recent years but how about petrol engine technology?
My old workhorse is now over 18 years old, it is fuel injected, has a catalytic converter and at MOT time, the emissions are still so low I was told...
MB have pulled off a deal with Ssangyong and sold them the old in line 111 engine for their 11 seat SV320 people carrier.
The road test made me laugh in the Bangkok Post, where it said that even if you have your own oil field it will soon empty it
As the title says, I'm after a small (1.1 ish) engined car for my daughter.
She has been having driving lessons for a couple of months now and sat and passed her theory test yesterday.
As it is going to be used to aid her driving experience, we have set a budget of £500.
When she passes her...
I picked up my new toy on Saturday and I've got to say it runs wonderfully.
There are some wee niggles but they can be sorted out simply enough!
It's lost a few of its original 231 horses as would be expected but still runs nicely.
It's literally like cruising down the...
I know they have been done in the past - but here is one up for sale on Pistonheads.
I recall seeing a review of one in Evo. Essentially it said the mutts nutts in a straight line, but rather scary in a corner and fall over type way.
The other day someone was asking about whether bird droppings can damage the paintwork of your car :)
Wife has just returned home and has been the victim of ONE B52 eight engined bomb load!!! :eek:
The car was absolutely straddled, stem to stern, port to starboard. There is one evil bird...
i need help!
i am wanting to replace my boring mondeo zetec(company car) and sell my old w126 for a newer cdi engine.
ive seen that the e220 cdi (2000) will return 45mpg and there are loads of them out there for around the 8k mark (my budget) in the facelift model with leccy seats...
