    Help, W123 shakes foron startup

    Help, W123 shakes on startup Hello, I am fairly new to this forum and this is my first post. About a month ago I acquired a 1985 w123 230e with 66k on the clock which is a pleasure to drive. In the last week, every time I start it in the morning it starts without a problem but then the revs...

    Silverstone GP Track Day 22/02 - Last Minute Drop Out Offer

    So one of our party for Monday has dropped out. As they are unable to cancel at such short notice, it means there's a cheap pass for a car and 2 additional drivers up for grabs. I'll be there in my 507 C63 with an RS5 to keep me company. Anyone interested, let me know. Mark

    Bluewater - last minute . com

    Going to get the car out tonight. They don't seem to have gritted yet so I'm taking advantage of a dry night before winter kicks in. A couple of guys have already said they'll be keen to meet up. Come along if you don't have much on. I'll run recon in the Alfa before I set off just to...

    Last minute gift? iPad Mini £219 @ Waitrose

    Just thought I'd share this - might be just the job if you're struggling for last minute gifts or looking for a good deal on iPads. I was doing the Christmas grocery shopping in Waitrose earlier this evening and noticed iPad Mini Wi-Fi 16GB for £219. Please note, it's not the retina...

    What happens when you leave booking to the last minute..

    ... you get the car that nobody else wants :doh: Maybe I'm being harsh, but it is an Atkinson Lee chauffeur special, a manual E220 CDi. This is the first manual Mercedes I've ever driven and it takes a while to get used to having to use clutch and swap gears oneself. At least the interior...

    Just take a minute...

    I know I've not been very active over the last few months, but I thought I'd just write a little piece about the seemingly constant battles that have been taking place in recent times. There are a lot of strong personalities on the forum, this is one of the things that make it a great place...

    Just humour me for a minute...

    As some of you know, I've put my C36 up for sale and was intending to drop a '55 lump in the 'C43, then maybe look at supercharging it. In a moment of clarity today, this struck me as being a bit silly; why not sell both AMG's and buy a C32? After all, I've got a bit of a crusade to own every...

    It's Been Nearly Four Months Of W211 Sport Ownership And I've Enjoyed Every Minute.

    I bought my facelift 2007 W211 E320 CDi Sport at the beginning of December and have covered a decent 3,500 miles in that time. This average will go up greatly over the summer with trips to the coast & other family jaunts planned. Since purchase the only 'parts' I've replaced have been the...

    Two Minute Silence

    Two Minute Silence BONG! Here we go again. Do I really have to stand here for two minutes? Just because some old people say so? I'd rather be reading the paper. It's raining again. I hope it clears up before the weekend, I've got some important shopping to do. Oh hurry up, I need a...

    Proms: Last Minute Advice

    So I'm going to listen to some Ravel tonight... Problem is, I have a tux in the car and a beige-linen suit on... Which would be more appropriate? She's told me she's wearing a "nice dress as it's been a while she hasn't dressed up"... so now I'm a bit worried! M.

    Last minute order change from E250 to E350???

    I'm days away from confirming an order for a 2012MY E250 CDI Sport 'Edition 125' 7 spd Cabriolet. As I will be ordering Distronic, the price differential between this and a E350 with new new stop/start 265bhp engine is coming to c£1200 after discounting... I drive approx. 20k a year, so...

    5 minute idle MPG

    Had to move the car out of the way this morning - there was some good music on the radio so ended up sitting there for 5 minutes - was a bit surprised when i looked at my mpg count to see it at 9.9mpg! Granted, i wasn't moving anywhere, but that'd sucked a lot of juice through in 5 minutes (i've...
