    False Widow?

    Caught this little blighter walking across our downstairs loo. I've had a look at other pictures of them and the little dimples / faint markings looking like the usual skull can be see on it's ass but is it actually an FW or just a different spider from the same group - the markings aren't...

    True or False

    A car designed well before the modern energy saver tyres requires less front toe-in when using energy saver tyres. This on account of less drag means less load on suspension that spreads the front wheels apart = less toe-in required. Silly nonsense or something to be aware of...??

    Just found this. True or false?

    Economical with the truth? Ten myths about mpg figures | Top Gear My own experience says I never achieve the so called MPG figures, or anywhere near them. 16 mpg is good for me as I enjoy my car. I accept my driving style probably has an influence....but I bought it to enjoy. Neil

    False ceilings and lighting

    I'm toying with a daft idea that my garage needs an overhaul. It is a brick built pointy roof one but a little dust settles from the roof on to my car and i'm thinking that rather than the two light bulbs that are currently in the garage, I should have tubes to help me polish in the winter!!! I...

    W220 False Alarms.

    My 2003 W220 S500L seems to have developed a problem with the alarm, or maybe the boot catch, which is triggering the alarm. A couple of days ago I left the headlights on accidentally for an hour or so. This was after nearly a week of not running and it drained the battery just enough to...

    True or False. Mobile Phone and ATM Lifesavers.

    I have had this through on an email a long time ago and it surfaced again today. So with the wealth of knowledge amongst forum members I though I would post it to find out if all or some of it is true or not. I do think the second point would be very useful, if true. 4 THINGS YOU...
