    Hi, I new on here but have been an MB fan/owner/collector for a while. What I am looking for is an SEC 560 for myself. I don't mind the overall condition of the vehicle as I am proposing some 'updates' to the body and the interior of the car, I would prefer the running gear to be...

    How important is mileage when buying 10 year old E320CDI

    Hi, I have heard that E320CDI can go beyond 500k, or even 1m miles and with right maintenance and repairs I suppose it might well be the case. However I have a practical question. If buying a 10 year old E320CDI with the expectation of doing 40k miles (overall not per year) in the next 5 years...

    Tyre pressures are important?

    After towing a caravan this weekend with my CLK320 and putting 40PSI in the rears (ignoring the guidance from the filler cap for 4 passengers plus luggage) I can confirm that it does not feel "right" when the van was not attached. It has massive AMG wheels/tyres on, on 18" rims and another...

    My first diesel car (W211, 2005 E280 CDI). Sometime I forget to wait until the glow plugs light goes off before I start the engine. What is the risk of me (or my wife who is worse than me remembering to wait) damaging something in the engine? A friend of mine said he had an Audi A4 for 5...

    Steering damper - how important is it?

    My 93 W124 320E feels a bit twitchy at speed, and requires quite some concentration driving fast, not the relaxed experience I'd become accustomed to in previous Mercs. I have changed quite a bit on my front suspension - new wishbones with ballpoints and front anti-roll bushes. Could it be that...

    Why do some lorry drivers think keeping their momentum is more important than safety?

    One of the things I find most frustrating is HGV drivers who pull out in front of you - or even into the space you are occupying, forcing you to swerve into the next lane. Often, with no indication whatsoever. I know they need to keep up momentum, but this should never take precedence over...
