    Strange thing happened today

    My s212 e63 threw a wobbly today. There was suddenly quite a lot of vibration thru the drivetrain under medium acceleration. Engine light has come on. I pulled over, stopped the engine and before calling recovery I decided to start it up again and check under the bonnet for anything obvious...

    Cars in garage, whats happened in this picture to the CV?

    I had my CV joint replaced a few months ago. When they fitted it the clip was done up tight enough and it spilled a lot of grease. Fortunately I spotted it quickly and took it back where the repacked it and retightened it. Recently the car has been making some weird noises when accelerating at...

    A really lovely thing happened to me today...

    On Saturday, I washed, polished and generally titivated the outside of my little green car to within an inch of its life, then drove 30 miles round trip to a lovely garden centre. Yesterday it rained heavily and I was pleased to see the water beaded up quite nicely. For seventeen years old she...

    So this happened finally

    Finally managed to get through the running in period. The journey home from the Trafford centre was a lot more fun than the journey to yesterday! All under the speed limit, obviously. The noise it puts out for a little 2.0L is fantastic! Perhaps a little early for a full review but loving it...

    Can someone more learned than me advise what has causes the marbling on the rim off the alloy? I have just had my wheels put on again after a spell with MB and 2 of the tyres have obtained this strange appearance (see photo) I have tried to wipe off and appear to be under the lacquer. Any ideas...

    Nothing happened

    What happened to the car magazine article that stripped cars?

    Does anyone else remember the car magazine, that would have an article where they took a second hand car and stripped it down to nearly every nut and bolt? They'd have a nice photo of all the parts neatly laid out on the floor. The article would then describe how they thought the car had worn...

    Whats happened here?

    Went to wash my car, hadnt done it for a while and found this :eek: Had noticed the edges were wearing but not this bad. Is the mark just wear or has it hit something that has cut the tyre? Have ordered new tyres but thinking the alignment needs checking too?
