    Are cars going to be reliable when they're old?

    I was out with a mate who works for a well known car hire firm delivering vehicles. They do a lot of courtesy cars for prominent car manufacturers. Quite an eye opener just how many cars have problems. So, probably covered this before but when people like myself can afford one of these cars...

    Anybody know a reliable reasonable chromer?

    Yes, I know, a rare beast up there with unicorns. The last chromer I used lost an original bumper bolt off my Allard and was unrepentant. I have lots of bits on the W114 that have poor chrome. For some it will be easier and cheaper to replace, for others the cost is high and I'd like to...
