    I am in my 30s every group I join all I see in the group are just older people and I see no one in their 30s there and when I join other groups it is still the same thing with people in their 50s and 60s and nobody in their 30s there. It seems people in their 30s don't join social groups. Why...

    Polybushes for older Mercs

    My W210 handles excellently on the twisty roads round here thanks to it's new lowered springs and AMG wheels, but it's a bit rattly and clunky over potholes. So I decided to replace the ARB links, and checked out how much suspension bushes would be. Not cheap. Then I checked out strongflex.eu...

    Advice welcome on the 'older' Merc. Sell up or keep?

    Gentlemen, I have a 2004 E-Class 320 cdi Elegance Estate in silver with light grey leather and a few toys. I have owned her for three years, she cost £5500 and has covered 146,000 trouble-free miles, 15,000 in my ownership. Unfortunately, things have now started to go wrong and I think...

    Upgrading In Car Technology on older models.

    Hi all, Been lurking in the forum for a while now reading and learning. Currently my daily is a W204 (Merv), leased as I was doing big miles in 2014. When I leased Merv, I had all the bell bells and whistles added. Comand etc, and have been really happy with the tech. Merv goes back to Merc...

    Hi everyone. I've recently joined mainly to try get some information/what to look for as I may be in the market for a Merc in the coming weeks should I get the payrise I'm hoping for.

    Getting older has its benefits..

    Not that many in my experience, it has to be said. But, your car insurance does get cheaper. I've just run the numbers for this year's renewal (due imminently) and for fully comp. on a 2006 SLK55, me and the Mrs. driving, the only black mark my one speeding ticket and 9 years NCB. Cheapest...

    Meet at Bicester 19th October for Mercs old and new.

    As the weather has been lovely I've been polishing my 190 2.5 16 to death - anyone fancy a general meet while this weather continues but with an older vibe (cars not people, not that I'm ageist or anything).

    Breakdown insurance - older car

    For some years I've insured with Churchill and have bought the add-on breakdown insurance for myself and favourite wife. Problem is that I read they cover us for breakdowns in any car under 16 years old. My E300TD will cross that threshold in January next year. I do about 20k per year...

    Ok for those who can remember the days when you buy 3 gallons of petrol for £1 (that being the green folding paper note). Whilst chatting with a friend the other evening the subject of old car related advertising came up, so who can recall the following ? (1) What did we put in the tank &...

    Older Cars Section?

    Hi All, I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but I can't find a post despite a good browse. So, could we open a discussion section or similar for cars of a certain age - twenty years or more, for example? Cars where you could lift the bonnet and still have a chance of seeing what's going...
