    Common Sense Not Required... Tower Hamlets. Girl, 5, fined £150 for lemonade stand It appears that there is at least one person with a brain present in Tower Hamlets council, just a pity that they're not on the front line :rolleyes: Stories like this fill me with confidence that the enforcement powers vested...

    2010 S212 E500 AG - trying to make sense of the specs

    Hi 212 owners. I found a sales brochure and price list for my 212 and am trying to figure out what options the first owner added. From what I can see a 2010 E500 Avantgarde had the following as standard; Airmatic, Direct Steering, Intelligent Light System (bi-Xenon, cornering lights...

    Painful decision .. next car! What makes the most sense?

    So, it's getting to that time where 100,000 miles is only a year or two away on the C55 and I may want to think about getting rid of it. It's also got to that time where an estate or similar would be very useful for transporting bikes with the kids, etc. Something the C55 saloon is useless at...

    Insurance companies make no sense

    Last year when I bought my C63 I was suprised to find it was cheaper to insure than my e350 convertable it replaced. Aviva were the cheapest by a mile and quoted me around £450. This year this has risen to £1050! A little look around and I can get cover for £335 from Churchill. And this...

    The DVLA Has a Sense of Humor?!

    A relative managed to get a speeding ticket while in the UK... and may be offered a speed awareness course. Problem is, she has a EU driving license so providing the DVLA with a driving license number isn't the simplest thing on the planet. After reading several bits of paperwork, it turns...

    Does a diesel make sense?

    Thinking about changing to diesel saloon. Not sure what yet, maybe e320 cdi or 530d I only do about about 7k miles a year, mainly town. Given that, does diesel make sense or settle for equivalent petrol model and stomach the mpg difference?

    Does it make sense to reduce fuel duty?

    Does the price of fuel limit your mobility? Following on from the fuel thread where it was clear that we pay a fair bit of tax on petrol I was wondering how necessary it is to tax at the rate we do? Is it possible that the quantity of tax raised could be increased by dropping the rate? From...
