    Uber and the rise of fleet managed drivers

    Just for back from Portugal and after getting ripped off by a taxi driver in Porto, tried Uber later. Chatting with the driver, he explained that he worked (wage + commission + full use of car) for a boss who had a fleet of 10 cars all fully maintained. All the driver had to do was clean the...

    Secure Managed Car Storage in London or Essex?

    Hi, Hope everyone is well. I wondered if any of you had any recommendations on car storage facilities. I used to use one near Chelmsford - but I cannot recall the name! Auto barn or similar!! I would need the service to include the normal battery conditioning, rolling of wheels and tyres...

    Wahay - I've managed to hit the claimed mpg figures.

    It has taken a while to figure out how to drive the little Smart in an economical manner. I must say that it is really quite hard to get over 70mpg in town. But last night on my commute across west London in less than ideal conditions I managed to hit my target despite the engine still being...

    Anyone managed to change the stereo on a 1999 CLK & keep steering wheel controls?

    My Audio 10 cassette/CD changer just isn't good enough. For one my CD changer doesn't work, and I do not even own a tape to play on it! I had a Sony CD/MP3 (2003) head unit, that i would consider fitting, as I cannot afford a COMAND at present. Just wondering if anyone had managed to...

    Has anyone managed to change Merc Command sat nav to TomTom?

    I managed to stall my auto...

    Wasn't going to mention this (partly out of embarassment) but I thought I would throw it at the forum anyway: A couple of days ago, I managed to stall my 300CE-24. The aircon was on full whack, my headlamps were on and the car was at rest. I shifted from P to R (I was in a car park) and lo...
