    I got my 2007 E280 cdi Sport 124k, 3 weeks ago. It did drive fine on the test drive but im not sure if this has been happening with the previous owner. Sometimes the auto box does not kick down and the car has very little power. There is no warning lights of any kind on my dash. One of the...

    The coolant temperature in my C250 sometime hits 105C and the radiator fan still doesn't kick in. In normal driving conditions the temperature stays at about 90 - 95C. The ambient temp is about 25C. But when I`m in the mood to floor it and shift at 4k rpm for a couple of minutes and then pull...

    Future classics - anyone kicking themselves already?

    Should I be kicking myself,

    , or is the mileage just TOO high? Cheap as chips W209 Added it to my watch list a few days before out of interest but didn't see what price it had reached. Would have even been amenable to PX! Think if I had spotted this at 7.30 a bid or two would have been going in. Thoughts people- I...

    Hi I need pointers on what could be causing my aircon woes. I had my whole diavia compressor changed and the drier was replaced and pipings checked etc in May this year. Now the aircon doesn't come on immediately - only after say 10 to 15 mins on the road. When it does come on, the coldness is...

    Kicking the Cat

    I'm thinking of dumping the Cat on my 92 500SL (beats the law by 3 months). Is this sensible? I've been told that it will improve fuel addiction by about 10% (not looking for the extra BHP you understand!). Is this a sensible move? Are there issues re engine management system etc? It's a good...
