With no prior warning, at the end of a 400 mile journey my E280 CDI was hissing loudly from the rear and smelling of cabbages. The hissing (and smell) persisted for some minutes after switching the engine off. Is this the catalytic converter? Or something else?
Thanks for any thoughts.

The replacment car after the W124 was written off is a......ahem.....diesel Rover 75 estate, 1 owner, full history and 130k miles for £500 bargain I thought. Great on fuel and nice and comfy the only things I don't like is it's a manual and by crikey is it slow.

I've only had my W211 a few weeks and i am generally very impressed by the quality, feel, fit and finish of everything.

Did Volvo really do this?
So you have quite a nice looking car according to photo 1, but then you see the interior. Is this Volvo's doing or a mod by someone with no taste? Anyone like the colour of the interior?
