    Faint hot metal smell at speed?

    I recently noticed a very faint hot metal smell at speed, say over 90mph - on private roads, naturally ... :crazy: Is it ball bearings? - I had OSF replaced a few month ago. I also think it is when the S mode is selected, although I haven't driven in C mode for a while, other than in town...

    Reducing speed ratings?

    One of my summer tyres has a puncture and am considering using this to take the opportunity to replace the tyres to all seasons. I live in the Dales and would certainly benefit from them in the colder months. The problem is that most of these tyres either maintain their v speed rating...

    W211 E220 '04 Rear Speed ABS Sensor Intermittent Fault ?

    Hi Anyone done any of these faults found it to be more likely to be the ABS/Speed sensor or the Impulse Ring? Can get the Impulse Ring cheap enough (£12 Genuine Mercedes) but the ABS Speed sensor is over £100 for a genuine one. :eek: I'm assuming to get to the Impulse Ring it's a total strip...

    7 Speed Torque Converter Drain

    Hi, I have a 2011 GL 7sp 3.0 diesel. It has just done 40,000 miles. I get a shudder from the torque converter when it is hot and stopped in Drive, it goes when it starts to move. I realise it is due a fluid change now so I have been phoning round. One independent quotes £225 but don't...

    W639 CANBUS Speed Limiter Kit

    It's all the rage to watch your speed to within 1MPH these days, but I'd rather keep my eyes on the road than on the speedo. My W639 has a speed limiter, but not an easy way to flip it between 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 MPH. (In fact it is stuck at Km/h anyway) I'm wondering if the speed...
