    Keeping a car if you do hardly use it???

    Well another three months have gone by and I have only covered 600 miles in the C63!!! So, I am really beginning to question the point of owning it as it spends 95% of the time sat in the garage… I don’t need, or even really want to sell, as I can think of nothing to replace it with. But as...

    Keeping Headlights Clear

    Plastic headlamps. A safety feature? I'm sure this may have already been covered somewhere, but is there any way to keep them from going milky? My old S210 E240 is blessed with glassy clearness and I'd like to keep them that way. Already 16 years old, they are certainly due a turn. Is...

    My calipers are powder coated yellow. When clean they look superb, but they get dirty quickly. The only way I have found to clean them is to remove the wheels and get to work on them. I don't mind doing this, but what is the best product to use to clean brake dust etc. off them? And is...

    Chancellor keeping an eye on fuel prices!

    C63 removing primary cats ONLY & keeping secondary cats/resonators- anyone done this?

    Hi all, I've watched loads of videos of people who have removed secondary cats and or resonators. To me, personally, a lot sound really raspy and un-refined, more like a shouting car rather than a deep rumbling puuurrrrr like the original C63 sound. I just watched this video, I think, going...

    Keeping calm

    Sometimes keeping calm pays off in unexpected ways. One day last year my good lady texted me to say she was stuck at work and could I call in at the supermarket to pick up something quick for dinner.

    Keeping alloys clean

    Does anyone use any products on alloys? I have 18" amg's and am looking for a suitable product to give the alloys a shine after wash and also act as a dirt barrier. Ideally where I can just rinse the dirt off rather than scrub! Cheers

    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...
