    Power increase?

    Are there any basic tweaks or modifications that can be done to a M104 3.2 to give more power without having to go down the turbo route? Im really impressed with its power and torque delivery, its very addictive! Just wondered if there is something more that can be done.

    E Coupe VAT Price Increase

If you leave it until after the bank holiday weekend, it's likely to cost around 3.5p extra per litre due to the combined effects of the rises in fuel duty (from tomorrow) and VAT (from Tuesday). UK motorists set to be hit by rising...

    Increase mpg just by pumping up tyres

    Hi, I've increased my mpg from an average of about 31 to 34 just by pumping up the tyres from 30/33 fr/r psi to 35/35 fr/r psi. This seems safe to me, but would 40 psi be pushing it??? It's a w202 c200 auto. Cheers. (PS I need a tow bar if anyones got one going)

    Replacement keys: huge price increase
