    Trolly jack + long bolt in jacking point

    I've seen a few people do this now. Putting a long bolt in the slot for the spare wheel jack and then using a trolly jack to lift the car from the bolt. (See image below) I can kind of see this working as the jacking point where the bolt is placed is where the emergency boot jack would...

    Alternative charging point?

    Hi guys, Merc has locked me out again, can gain access to interior with key unlock on passenger side but drivers door and boot won't unlock and battery is dead! Last time this happened a while back managed to get the Sparks onto somewhere in engine bay which gave enough juice for remote to...

    Night vision - is there any point?

    Bemused by the Night Vision feature on my W221. I can't see the point of it. It doesn't give me anything better than my eyes can see. Am I missing something?

    Any point in shopping around for parts?

    In the past, I've rung MB in Beaconsfield for quotes. Is it the same cost for MB parts in every dealership or can they offer individual deals? If the latter, where tends to be good? Alternatively, are there any good parts companies left on these boards? I've tried and failed in the past...

    Meeting point of value for CLS55 vs. CLS63?

    As some of you may be aware, I've had my eye out for a CLS55 and have seen fair prices of around £11k for 90-100k miles up to about £15k for 60k miles (good examples with reasonable extras in the right colours). Mostly the prices above that seem to be indy dealers taking the pee. Under that...

    CLS Axle Stand Point

    Silly question time, I had a look under a CLS today, I could see each of the 4 jacking points, I think I'd get a jack pad to lift it up. But it was not obvious where the axel stand points were? Does anyone have any photos or description of where I put axel stands, on a W219?

    Hi I'm after a rear lapbelt for an R129 SL in black if anyone has one? I've a 3 point harness in the back on the passenger side (works with child seats) that I'm happy to swap. It looks genuine MB, the fittings match and it uses the original socket.

    Leather - is there any point?

    Given that most of what I read says my cars have been leather coated with a vinyl or similar product is there any point of applying leather care treatments? I have several in the garage and have been using them. My current car is an E350 Night Edition with leather seats, as this car is not...

    My E55 W210 facelift model is missing the passenger side front jacking point cover! They cost £40 + vat from Mercedes so unless I can find one elsewhere I will just have to order one from them. Happy to pay a reasonable price if anybody has one to sell! Cheers in advance Pat

    At what point do you call it a day?

    Shall I put (formerly) beloved S203 out to grass? Took her in to the dealer for service today – I know it’s daft taking an oldish car to the dealer but they’re convenient and do a not-bad price and with it only needing service every 2yrs I feel it’s worth it to keep Mobilo. Also, while there...

    Is there any point retro-fitting LED's

    I mean any point retrofitting LED's from an energy saving perspective. From what I can gather if I replace a filament bulb with a standard LED the bulb failure warning system won't recognize the LED as it draws insufficient current. There are LED's with additional parallel resistors to...
