    A bit of a learning curve

    Hello all, I am new to this forum as I am not a Mercedes owner as yet but desperately trying to get there. I did try three years ago and three years before that but having owned BMW's for the last 25 years either as company cars or through PCP's, it seems to be a struggle to find competitive...

    Learning to fly

    I've had the itch for a long time, but I've now got a bit of spare time and spare cash to scratch it. It's purely for the pleasure and the challenge; so daylight VFR is enough for me - no intentions to fly outside of the UK or at night. I'll stick to easyJet for my holidays… A few questions...

    How do I reset a re-map's 'learning' process after new exhaust?

    I'm fiiting a sports exhaust (subject of a current thread) and have been offered a re-map too. Problem is I re-mapped the car a year ago, and was told at the time that the ECU would spend the next few miles 'learning' the new throttle settings and power, etc. So my question is: Is there...

    Learning to love my C32

    Having had the C32 for a month it's time for a bit of reflection. It's fair to say I'm not instantly in love like I was with the W124, that's probably something to do with that being purchased to scratch an itch that had been with me for some twenty years, whereas this one was more of a spur of...

    Is the "learning" gearbox truth or fiction?

    Most of my journeys are suburb and city based and as such, fairly sedate, with the gearbox being allowed to change under part throttle openings. Today I gave it some beans and I thought there was some lag between kickdown and (rather) rapid take off. It's been said that the gearbox learns...

    "Learning" mechanics - anyone done long distance learning courses?

    Hi, So I've a little experience. Back at the age of 17 I crashed my car (1994 Peugeot 405), my parents said "if you want a car, you can fix the one you irresponsibly crashed". So I bought a Haynes and changed - bumper, lights, radiator, thermostat, bonnet. I'd love to learn more, I'd like...

    Learning to Drive

    Not me :) My wife is learning to drive, and wants to learn in an auto - as she only wants to drive auto once she has passed. However, I have told her I think she is best learning in a manual, just so she has the option of driving a manual later on if she ever wants to. What does everyone...

    Learning to ride a horse

    After watching seabiscuit, I have developed an urge to learn to ride a horse. Anyone has any suggestions of a company or stables (preferably in the UK) who run week long courses? I googled and there are so many operators. Thanks.

    Learning a new language

    I can already speak English (obviously), French and a little Spanish. (bit rusty mind you) Can anyone speak Greek? And if so is it really hard to learn, seeing as it has a whole new alphabet?? Bit of a daunting thought really....:crazy:

    Learning Something About Speedtronic....

    Well, I think thats what its called! My W210 has the "dual mode" cruise control, where you can either set it to maintain a speed you set, and the "limiter" function where you dial in a speed and it won't exceed it unless you floor the gas pedal. I've started using the limiter around Rugby...
