    CEL and limp home mode :crazy:

    Have a 2009 CSL 320 CDI. Bought it 3 weeks ago. Got the Service A, gearbox and brake fluids changed too. A few days ago, CEL lit up followed by a lack of power. Other than that, gearbox changes were smooth and acceleration was smooth, but limited. Was 60 miles from home. Switched off and on...

    Satnav shootout ... who will get home quicker?

    Late Sunday afternoon. Pouring rain. A field near the New Forest. An S203 with COMAND sets off for the 60 mile drive home with Mrs BTB at the controls. Five minutes later I leave in the Vito, guidance courtesy of TomTom. I got back 30 mins before she did :thumb: :bannana:

    My experience of a Home / Travel insurance claim

    Unfortunately, on holiday in Portugal a few weeks back my wallet was stolen by pickpockets. It rather took the shine off our holiday as you can imagine. Reported theft to (very helpful) local Police who didn't pussyfoot about regarding the countries of origin of the scrotes by the way. I...

    Hi to all, I wondered if any members have any inside knowledge for the trend in heating oil? I had an email from Boiler Juice indicating there could be a leap in prices. I normally try to buy in spring/summer as prices normally drop, I have between 800 to 1000 litres left and this time of...
