But found that I was classed as a commercial vehicle and so my limit apparently was 50mph. I got so much mixed information about whether the...

    So after a dreaded 'top up coolant' warning on my CLS63, I checked the water level and it's pretty much where it's been for the last 6 months Oil level has gone down very slightly if anything, not risen, no excessive white steam from exhaust even in this cold weather, only thing I can think of...

    W210 E230 rough idle, almost stalling in drive but fine in park or neutral.

    Any help will be appreciated if someone can guide me in the right direction. Mileage is 173000 km. Transmission also makes a whining sound. Not sure if that is a separate issue though. Sent from my GT-N7100 using Tapatalk

    An alternative to a speeding fine?

    Would this be more effective than a £10000 fine for speeding on the motorway?

    Up to £10k fine for speeding on motorway Seems a bit extreme but prompted me to ask a question: are national speed limits now enforced by cameras on some motorways eg M25 in Kent? I saw the new Hadecs3 cameras flashing when variable speed limits were not switched on. I'd estimate the car in...

    BBC News - Man in Bradford traffic queue given parking ticket This just harvesting drivers isn't it. It can't be right that a moving car just drives down the road and "snap" £60 fine please.

    Text-driving fine to rise to £90

    Text-driving fine to rise to £90 | IT PRO Unfortunately I doubt that raising the fine to £90 will make the slightest difference to any of the total idiots who use their hand-helds whilst driving. For reasons totally beyond me, the police don't seem that bothered either. At best they may wag a...
