Off to the Kruger for a quick trip at the end of the month and need another pair of binoculars to save us fighting over the one pair we've got.
Obviously want the best for free but that won't happen.
Budget - there is none but want quality that will last ( we go yearly ).
Not sure what to...
Bought a VW Golf Mk5 (2005) for the missus yesterday - any one recommend a good indi in the Maidenhead and surrounding areas.
Also, need to get the fabric upholstery and headlining cleaned - another recommendation would be appreciated.
Rear tyre on CLS55 went flat yesterday - no sign of a puncture, but noticed a hairline crack on the back of the alloy which seems a likely culprit. Normally I use PCS for the car, but they're a bit of a trip with the wife's car to get something small done.
Obviously getting a wheel fixed...

I can get the universal electrics but I do like the idea of just using dedicated electrics if these are just plug in.
I have just brought a couple of socket sets recently for the workshop and thought it worth sharing.
The Christmas offers have arrived at various builders merchants near you and I found a lovely 3/8" drive Faithfull socket set in a red case with proper hinges and latches. Nicely finished, good...
Looking at staying in Amsterdam for 2/3 days but will be arriving by car. No point trying to stay in the centre as obviously it's not car friendly and parking will be a PITA. Any recommendations for a half decent place to stay within a sensible tram/bus ride? Bland...

I recently bought a two year old E63S. I didn't notice when I bought it that a significant area of the red paint on one of the brake calipers has flaked off (see attached pic).

Feeling silly now: with the new car only hours away from being collected (pause for another woohoo moment), I set up the MercedesMe account on my PC and then went to get an app for my phone. But I discover it's too old apparently, so I can't use it - the Apple IOS version is not modern enough...
