    Lesson learnt - insurance

    So, back in Nov 2014 I had a slight knock with another car whilst reversing out of my drive. The other car was parked and whilst I reversed I knocked the side of their bumper slightly. Damage - nothing that couldn't be easily t-cut/buffed out. But a scratch nevertheless. Decision was made by...

    Flying lesson

    I'm not the greatest fan of flying, I consider it as a means to a hopefully good holiday. In fact i'm quite proud of the fact that I have now reached such a proficient passenger level that I can even eat a meal during such a bizarre and unnatural experience….. Anyway, for some reason...

    History Lesson, Some you will know some you won't

    Some you know some you don't. There is an old Hotel/Pub in Marble Arch, London , which used to have a gallows adjacent to it. Prisoners were taken to the gallows, (after a fair trial of course) to be hung. The horse drawn dray, carting the prisoner, was accompanied by an armed guard, who...

    Lesson learned

    Well that's a lesson learned for me, last weekend while travelling up the A1 a large stone hit the smaller of the three sections of my panoramic roof, shattering it. I had assumed the roof would be covered by the insurance as glass and the window screen excess would apply, as it turns out my...

    Check your tyres. A salutary lesson.

    Ok, so I checked my rear tyres a few weeks ago. On the wear markers. Hmmm, I'll leave it till I get paid. Left it till payday, and checked them again - really low in the middle, but some tread on the outside. Pay day came around again. Really must get some tyres. Checked them last week. Yup...

    My First Christmas Lesson

    I'm a complete newcomer to Mercedes-Benz, so when the seven-year old battery on my recently-acquired 1998 SLK 230 showed signs of stress in the current cold snap, I decided to replace it and contacted Mercedes-Benz Norwich. I was quoted £103 for the battery and an additional £75 (!) to fit it -...

    A sober lesson for us all ?

    I have thought long and hard about making this post but believe in doing so it will hopefully be of benefit. Unfortunately my holiday this week was numbed by news from my Nephew that a freind of ours had died in a road accident on the A14 near Ipswitch. A tragic event that makes you take a...

    W124 - Front Springs - A good lesson

    Hello, I've recently had both the front springs on the front of my 300TE replaced. I bought some items from Eurocarparts in the end, as my local Mercedes Dealer (at Cribbs Causeway, Bristol) decided not to respond to any of my parts enquires. I had the work done by a specialist as the...

    A quick grammar lesson.

    I constantly see the word "your" being used incorrectly. When I am talking about "your" car that is correct. But when I say "your a twit" that is incorrect. I should say "you're a twit". You're is short for "you are",...your is short for nothing and denotes ownership, ( someone else may...

    A salient lesson perhaps?

    Suppose that every day, the same ten men go out for a few beers and the bill for all ten comes to £100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would go something like this: The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing. The fifth would pay £1. The sixth would pay £3. The...

    A lesson in MERCEDES 190 anatomy.

    You come across some weird things on t'internet but found this slightly surreal collection of pictures of a Mercedes 190 diesel front end cut in half. Obviously a motor show exhibit at some point but gives a good idea how well these cars were built and how repairing the heater is a nightmare...
