    Inheritance tax and expensive motors?

    Does anyone know if assets such as cars and boats etc are still exempt from the ridiculously low (IMO) inheritance tax? I know that precious metals and stones like gold and diamonds are taxable, and I for one would be the first to inform the inland revenue of every such item in my possession...

    MB's on ebay - expensive?

    I've just been looking at MB's on ebay - just looking, bit too scared to buy one from there. I was struck by how expensive they seemed compared to those on Auto Trader. I know that a Buy It Now price may be optomistic, and the auction could end a lot lower, but some of them seemed to be £2k more...

    Retrofitting Command in an SLK - expensive but worth it

    Bought an SLK in December without Command. Having driven SLK's with it, I really did feel I was missing out! After getting a decent bonus at work, I took the plunge this month and got Command retro-fitted. At the risk of being told I've been stitched, I thought I'd share the process in case...

    Worringly expensive sounding noise S320

    Hi all I just wondered if anyone has experienced anything like this with the 320 petrol or with any other W220 S? I am getting a very loud continuous noise just after start-up which continues for varying lengths of time. It sounds like a motor of some sort and also sometimes continues after I...

    Storage heaters - expensive to run?

    We've just had our offer accepted on a lovely big house :bannana: One of the downsides is that the village has no gas and so it has electric storage heaters. The house was built 20 years ago and is a 3200 sq foot 5 bed. Anyone got storage heaters - are they OK? I've heard that they can be...

    Why are MB sparks so expensive?

    Dealer price for changing sparks on E240 is a shade over £200 (and that's with 10% off parts and 40% off labour) I think there are 2 sparks per cylinder so = 12 spark, but even so... :crazy:

    As if diesel wasn't expensive enough already...

    I pulled into the Shell station in Reading today and filled up as usual, 55 litres into the C250's tank, according to the pump. So what's the problem, you may ask? The tank was 1/4 full when I got there :eek: (backed up by 300 miles on the trip meter, which I zero on every fill). So...

    oh dear, I hope this wont be too expensive :(

    Just driving round town today and realised the car wasnt kicking down - in fact it wasnt changing gear at all. Parked up and reverse wouldnt select either. Turned the ignition off and restarted and it seemed fine again. Then drove home and the car doesnt seem to want to get out of 2nd gear (I...

    Warning - Wheel nuts - W210 - Expensive lesson

    Be careful how you tighten front wheel nuts on your W210 ! Tried to replace front tyres on E300TD last week. Tyres fitter (Costco) called to say could only release 2 of 10 wheel nuts. I arrived and with the largest bloke in the fitting bay could not shift the other 8. ( Drove home, scaffold...
