    A few photos I took for you guys - for fans of the older and rarer MBs

    Went to my friends place the other night. Self confessed MB nut. All of these cars bar the 91 500E are his. He has another Bornite 94 E500 on the way... Beautiful 500E from the US E500 Limited with an 8 piston brake kit and retrimmed interior...

    Do all MBs suffer from rust eventually?

    The dreaded R word appears in almost every thread, so this morning whilst washing my car I had a few thoughts: 1) Have there been any changes to production techniques and materials in recent years to give us hope that the future may be a bit brighter? 2) Is the degree of rust a factor of how...

    Lots of MBs in Moscow!

    Going through my holiday photos again, found this one, taken on the F1 day near Red Square in Moscow on 19th July. Two of the cars "pacing" the circuit before the F1 cars came out were an AMG CLS and AMG ML. They sounded fantastic! Pic of ML below.

    Why BMW are better than MBs

    Tiger Woods drives his BMW into a petrol station in a remote part of the countryside.The pump attendant, obviously knows nothing about golf, greets him in a typical manner completely unaware of who the golfing pro is. "Morning' to yer, sir" says the attendant. Tiger nods a quick "hello"...

    New MBs are so good that.....?

    Hi All, As some of you know, one of my relatives is quite senior in MB Australia. We were talking about a few things the other day, and he tells me that quality on the new cars is so good that the dealers are complaining that there's not enough warranty work for them to do, and as a result...

    Are all MBs like wine?

    On getting the ML, I was disappointed with the performance ( 6th gear -yes, it is a rare manual one- was next to useless). I was considering a tuning kit when my MB technician friend said to wait to 2.5 -3k miles ; he also said it would only start to go at 12-13k miles. Well , at 3k miles it had...
