Moving on from John D's and contributors' helpful thread on cylinder locks (https://www.mbclub.co.uk/forums/general-discussion/222924-get-those-house-cylinder-locks-changed.html), I decided it was timely to review our side door security as the 15 year old handles were tatty and felt like they...
In the last couple of weeks I've been made aware of car thefts via key thefts from property, including a neighbour, a cousin, and an E63 owner.
All were stolen by crooks snapping the Eurocylinder locks on front/patio/rear doors, where the locks can be snapped in seconds, before entering the...

So I'm currently building a new house and the local authority want me to give it a name (it's address on the street)
House is timber frame construction. In the foreground it is single storey comprising carport, single garage, utility room, study, larger kitchen diner with vaulted ceiling...
Our landlord died and his son wants to sell his house. We can't afford to buy it at the moment so need to find another place. If anyone knows a private landlord that is looking for professional working tenants in the south Essex area do let me know.
In Our through lounge we had two 3 bulb light fittings taking standard 40w bulbs, after trying various low energy bulbs, then leds. Pretty Gloomy, as the fittings were pretty old we decided to buy some modern chrome light units. I fitted them yesterday and they came with G9 40w bulbs. (They get...
And I don't mean staying put and building one which I guess is much more common. I'm seriously having trouble finding a place with a garage wide enough to take an S-class. So it's a move for sure, thus "garage" is my #1 search keyword on Zoopla as well as prefixes like large, wide - but not...
Took our 2007 Vito Dualiner for MOT today and they refused to test it.
Reason given was that they need to inspect the floor panels, and this would not be possible with the built-in dog caging it's had from new:
This has never been an issue at any of the previous MOTs.

I've been looking into some solid wooden gates for the house for some time now. Anyone had some done, electric or non electric.
I have a double drive way with a 2.5m opening on either side. Possibly a forum member here in the trade.
I'm based in Manchester area. There seem...
What's going on in your area?
Our little Close in Surrey has gone beserk in the last 12 months. Our neighbours house has just sold for an absurd amount of money which (as long as it completes) will mean we've had a 30% increase in house prices in 12 months in our Road based on actual sales...
House purchase clapses after 15 months
As it says.
I am a cash buyer. They were buying non-chain houses.
Nothing could convince them to progress at all.
Now fell through.
Very depressing after 15 months.
As per the title. I need some advice please.
I am a long term varifocal specs wearer. Normally for reading and driving and the occasional bit of TV watching. Reading is my biggest need.
My present frames of choice being (I am a ponce) Rayban Wayfarers. So I need some new ones and thought...
I'm moving house at the end of November from a furnished place to an unfurnished place, so I'm needing everything to get me going, sofa, beds, wardrobes, cutlery and plates, etc etc etc.
At the moment I'm after free/cheap stuff as it's just to get me going for now.
I also can't store...
About 3 months ago we moved into a house which is now approximately 18 months old.
Two weeks ago we had a leak which was coming from the shower in the third floor bathroom which has also caused minor water damage to the floor below.
Having had a site manager and a customer liaison...
I happened to briefly mention on another thread (about a potential incoming E63) that I'm (trying!) to fund a new build that I've mostly designed and, to my disappointment, there was more interest in the house than the car :wall bash: What is this place!?!.....a car forum or cowboy builders? :D...
