Hello all. About a month ago a friend pointed out an open top sports car for sale near us both as he knew I missed my old Saab Convertible, but it was a 10 year old car and £20K+ so out of the question as a third household car just for the summer.
So I started looking at Mazda MX-5s but...
Need a small favour if any of you regularly travel from Manchester to London/Hampshire area, either way.
Looking for someone to help me transport a Steering wheel with airbag, seeing that all delivery companies have airbags on their restricted list.
Beer monies paid.
A few of us have been talking about a meet, and possible Hindhead tunnel run. Location is fairly central for Hampshire, (West) Sussex and Surrey counties, but isn't a million miles from Kent, East Sussex, London or at a stretch, Dorset (Bournemouth) either. Weather permitting, it...

I saved this car from London where it had been sat on the street for 3 years getting very little use (c.500 miles a year) after the owner fell ill, with the intention of using it as a stop gap until my newly ordered BMW is delivered. Why get something new and boring when cars like this are...
Hi, just joined as I have recently purchased a 2004 ML350. It's very low mileage and has a full MB service history. It's to be the family transport, joining a Renault Megane (shopping/daily drive) and a 1993 Nissan Skyline which is our 'classic in waiting' ;)
I'm impressed with the ML, it has...
In Hook near Basingstoke, Hampshire. Does anybody have any experience of them, good or bad?
Would be interested to know as I am now taking my car servicing out of the MB dealer network and these people are quite near.
Thanks in advance.
Are there any specialists in Southampton/Hampshire who know the 190E?
I *think* my valve stem oil seals are gone (classic symptoms), one garage I spoke to said the head would have to come off to sort it and the job would be into four figures.
I would attempt to do the job...
I recently purchased an almost mint 65k 1998 slk 230 Kompressor with black and red leather and trim from a barn clearance where it was stored for 4 years ( I do house clearances ). We have a C220 CDI which I enjoy driving but this is a different beast. I always looked at them as...

Finally took the plunge and bought a CLK 200 Kompressor on an 05 plate. Grinned like an idiot all through the test drive and get to pick it up next saturday.
Sorry about the username btw, it was all I could come up with at the time.
Hi folks. My name is David and I live in Aldershot, Hampshire UK.
I have just bought myself a 1998 W140 CL500 as a weekend car. I know zero about them so have a lot to learn.
Is there a MB 'Scene' of sorts? I have always been into old Fords before where the scene is huge so am unsure about...
Hi, I am planning another barge meeting probably at the cafe on the Goodwood Circuit around August as last time.
I am hopefully meeting up with a few Phaeton guys and some others invited over from Pistonheads South Coast.
Basically it's a gathering of big Power-Luxo-Barges anything Mercedes...
Thought I had better introduce myself before I start pestering everyone with my questions!:thumb:
Just bought a 2012 C220 Sport Estate, my first ever Merc. It was a case of keeping up with the Jones' as all the directors at my work drive Mercs so thought I would join them.;)
Went for an...
I am brand new to this club but happy to be part of it now I am the proud owner of a lovely R107 300SL. I have always wanted one of these cars and recently found an example which matched my expectations - saw plenty of dogs along the way though!
Now I have the car though I would...
Just had our 2k CLK320 Cab into their shop after I popped stuff while changing a battery.
Fantastic service from them identifying and replacing the MAF at short notice, and at a price way below my expectations.
Cannot recommend them enough.
