    Oh la la, the joys of......

    Car (ML63 2013) will have been in the garage for two weeks this Tuesday on a Tier 1 warranty. I am fed up with the dedicated AMG team so got in touch with the CEO of AMG, Tobias. They have now pulled it from AMG and handed it to the management board in Germany to deal with. Fingers crossed...

    The joys of selling on ebay

    I've often heard of folks having bad experiences with selling cars on eBay, just didn't think it would happen to me. Sold a Ford Fiesta on eBay, it was an MOT failure and clearly described as such, car was bought for the sum of £72, the car was paid for via PayPal and despite repeated requests...

    Oh the joys of driving a wagon!!

    Loving the car at the moment, apart from one silly but ANNOYING niggle - a damn squeak is driving me potty..! :wallbash: Seems to be coming from the load cover area, passenger side - anyone else experienced this and perhaps know of an easy / cheap fix..? (apart from removing the load cover...

    The joys of SM

    The Citroen SM that is, I know you lot. So I just picked it up and let's deal with the bad bits first - the instrument lights aren't working, or Citroen require some bizarre switch. The problem of test driving only in daylight only. The plus side, the speedo in kmh anyway. The newly...

    The joys of internet ordering

    and the aggrevation caused by oiks in vans who deliver stuff. Well I was pretty hacked off already having contemplated damaged bodywork today but this evening I nearly blew a fuse. Water softener ordered and delivered today as promised. All good so far. So I open it up this evening to...

    The joys of jacking up a W202 Sport

    Let's see if I've got this right. If you are trying to jack up the front of a W202 the only points you can use are the rubber jacking points on the sills or the subframe cross member. Once you have jacked up the vehicle you ought to use axle stands and the only place you put these is under the...

    Yet another thread about the joys of W124 ownership

    I've just returned from a 2,000 mile jaunt to the south of France for a week's holiday. Fully loaded up cruising along national roads (I'm too tight and uninterested in taking the autoroutes). The W124 was absolutely impeccable and simply superb. When I had to 'make progress' by getting past...

    The Joys of the big screen (rant)

    Rant warning! So I went to the cinema tonight.... The first thing I saw was a rat on the screen that told me not to watch pirated movies - that the sound would be tinny, the visual quality bad and I would see people going to the toilet in front of me... After finding my seat, I realised...

    [sarcasm] The joys of owning a MB [/sarcasm]

    My 420 has an electric blind which is operated by a button just near the gear knob. I pressed it today, for the first time in like 6 months, only to find it simply buzzing but the blind not going up.... ...has anybody had this before? Has the blind simply fallen off the mechanism and needs...

    The joys of pouring ATF into a diesel tank.....

    Just finished my first full tank of diesel in my new (to me, obviously!) '87 250D. I chucked in half a gallon of ATF (autobox fluid - very detergent to clean the fuel system!) along with the tankful of diesel. What a result! It idles better, runs more smoothly and quietly, and even pulls...

    The joys of photoshop ...

    I saw this and thought of our very own Shudester. Posted on Pistonheads - and I was in fits of laugher - a top quality posting. WARNING: If you're on a 56k dial-up it could take a while to load (but worth it in the end I think). http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?t=84160&f=23&h=0 K
