    £5k limit - which S-Class?

    Hi, I am seriously toying with the idea of an old S-Class (not a coupe). I have about a £5k budget. Ebay seems to have plenty, as does Auto Trader. I'm thinking under 100k miles + FSH, not too fussed about expensive gadgets (that go wrong?) but would quite like to 'go large' on the engine. I...

    4000rpm limit

    Traffic Police: Why do they generally drive over the speed limit with no lights?

    As above really. I'm not out for a slagging match, i'm just wondering if the members of her majesty's finest on this forum could offer some explanation. I spend about 2 hours each working day on the M4, and I regulary see traffic cars doing well over the limit, about 80-90 mph i'd say, with no...

    Report in The Times and other media today. Personally I think it should be Headlined: 'Plan to reduce Road Deaths by 30%' but they know that their headline will get more response.

    Limit on garage size reversed to bring drivers back off the streets

    Good God. An outbreak of common sense involving cars! :eek: "A decade after the Government ordered developers to discourage car ownership by making it difficult to park, a local authority has produced new guidance that acknowledges that the policy has failed. Far from reducing car usage...

    Minimum speed limit on motorways?

    Why oh why oh why is there no minimum speed limit on the motorways??? :( Does anyone want to try to convince me that the doddering fools driving at 40mph (usually in a world of their own and usually completely unaware of lanes other than the middle one they seem to believe they own) pose less...
