    A senior moment...

    Tonight Mr 110rry and I have to travel to the Midlands to be at an AGM at 09.00 Saturday. So, a couple of evenings ago I booked a hotel near to the venue via Laterooms. Then I promptly forgot where I had booked! I expected that I would get an email confirmation, but nothing arrived. So...

    Top Gear Moment.....

    Just sort of happened whilst on holiday in Wales and got to about 400 miles on 3/4 tank. Then was going to fill up but kept delaying and got to over 500! (501 miles, a record. I filled it with 56 ltrs which worked out at 40.4mpg. 65ltr tank), for an E300td. Surprising as over half was at...

    I don't want an AMG

    Well, OK, to be more accurate I don't want to own an AMG other than an SL or SLK. In MY opinion the loud engines and sportier (AKA stiffer) suspension don't suit anything other than sports cars. It's plain to see that very many people love their AMG saloons, estates and 4x4s, and that's their...

    Probably just a senior moment but a quick gearbox question..

    Morning all, Been having a think about my 2014 c180 coupe recently as it's been in for some bits and I've had a couple of nice courtesy cars. I have the auto box with the supposed 7 speed transmission. However only until recently driving both an SLK and a CLS have I noticed that in the...

    7G Gearbox - One off problem moment

    Guys, Was driving the other day (w209 2006 CLK 320CDI), and all of the sudden, the car felt really weird after a junction (huge lack of power & lots of revs on pulling out), turned out that the box has selected 5th gear & wouldn't use anything else. The journey has also included a short...

    Whats being discounted at the moment?

    Performing my usual dithering, I know I have to bin the C63 while it's still worth something, so mincing around seeing what's out there. Used cars I can ask a buddy who's a car dealer to pick something up for me, but then had a look at new stuff out of curiosity. I'm literally all over the place...

    Lets Hear Of A Significant Moment In Your Life

    With the forum being a community (for most) and it being a quiet Sunday morning I thought I'd start another "people" thread, by enquiring about a significant life event that could be shared. Happy or sad, cheerful or morose. Birth of children doesn't count, unless different from the norm...

    Candid camera moment

    While applying grease to the axillary battery terminals in the boot of my C class it struck me I had not seen the actual battery. Admittedly I have not removed all the plastic garbage under the bonnet to look for it. But then I have to ask, has it a real battery or just the little thing in the...

    A Senior Moment

    Sybil (190) is currently sitting on the drive due to too many cars and not enough garage space. Looked inside her and spotted some condensation so decided to purchase a waterproof cover from Halfords for remainder of the winter. Did a quick survey - tape measure - placed order online and got a...

    Will You Put Your Hand Up To A Stupid Moment?

    I'm not proud, so here's my starter for 10. A pal of mine in Worcester, and his entire road, were flooded a number of years ago, after the local tributary burst it's banks in a storm - it was evening before I got to him, and all the power had been cut off, meaning darkness. The situation was...

    c63 spur of the moment purchase

    I bought a Jan 13 C63 from a dealer the other day as an almost spur of the moment purchase. I would like to say what a truly lovely all round car it is. It is difficult to imagine that Id ever want anymore from a car, it is refined when you want it to be and then in S+ mode, it has enough grunt...

    Bought a Merc on the spur of the moment

    Hi, I was driving home today when I spotted a beautiful 2001 CLK 230 Advantgarde cabriolet sitting on a garage forecourt. Always liked these motors as my dad has had one from new in 2001 and still has it, and has never let him down. Anyway, I nearly mounted the curb as I rubber necked the...

    Proud Father moment ...

    Tomorrow I shall be attending my eldest daughter's graduation as B. Ed (Hons). She will become a Primary School teacher. I will have a couple of tears in my eyes. Firstly, as she receives her diploma and then as I pay the bill for the big family meal tomorrow evening. Worth every penny...

    Moment of madness!!!

    I know many of you will understand this!! I was the proud owner of a C Class W204 silver, leather, 2.0L petrol auto for several years. I then had my moment and traded for a pretty cool Audi A3 59 plate, from the moment I took delivery I really started to miss the quality, the drive, the...

    Hello, I'm looking at a C350CDi at the moment

    Hello MB peeps Firstly, can I say I am not cute :D (sorry, I am also on Brisdkoda and it is a standard opening question to new female members). Secondly, I should stand up and be counted. I own an A4 3.0TDi Quattro and although I still have a year to go on my PCP, I can get out of it now...
