    If it wasn't for bad luck...

    Monday night the washing machine breaks mid wash, great. This morning the boiler decides it doesn't want to be a boiler anymore, it wants to be a waterfall. They say it comes in three's, so what is next?

    Bad luck or neglect with tyres

    Had a nightmare the past year with rubber on the c63. First one was a blow out while traveling up to the MLS day a while back witch disintegrated a large portion of the inside wall. Then a couple of weeks after that the other rear developed a bump in the middle of the tread. This wasn't so bad...

    Interesting - MO Tyres or just luck?

    I've always been sceptical of the value of MO tyres, but today I might have just been convinced. My SLS had 4 almost new Pirelli P-Zero's but, since I've had it I couldn't get the wheels balanced properly. At 80-100 leptons, the wheel would shake...only slightly, but it was definitely there...

    Unbelievably bad luck!...

    Just back from two weeks away working, jumped in the car and was turning into a tight concealed entrance at a garage forecourt and heard a little bang, closely followed by a car passing me, as I'd braked sharply mid-entrance because suddenly a car appeared trying to exit I thought at first it...

    7 Years bad luck????

    The passenger vanity mirror in my 2006 CLK 200 (W209) cabriolet is cracked (must have looked too long!) It 's the electric one. Does anyone know if just the mirror can be replaced or is it a whole new visor?

    Bit better luck this weekend.....

    E200 GCI Avantgard, though still not a facelift model annoyingly. It's nice to experience a petrol motor with an auto box in an E-Class again, even if it's the baby one. Twice I had to check the rev counter to make sure it was running. Surprising amount of poke displayed on the short drive...

    Halifax to give away £6m - is "luck" the new interest??

    So bankers are going into the lottery business - using our money! I've just been invited by Halifax to register for their latest money-wasting wheeze - a £6 million prize draw.
