You must have in your...
Is it mainly the older cars that get treated to such lavish and time consuming detailing?
I've just spent an hour washing, drying my car... I am struggling to find time to do more planned detailing like Polishing and claying etc.
I thought I was OCD about car hygiene but some of the guys put me...
So....looks like Mrs JB wants to get back into a Merc. I have another thread running but was probably too long winded. We'll be replacing our trusty 5 yr old Galaxy that we've had for 5 yrs. It will be financed. Around £3/5k deposit. Looking to pay in area of £325 a month absolute max. Less...
Thoughts on pros/cons of a facelift w210 E55 or a W211 E500 on a £5k budget.............
I've previously had an E55 - but wonder if any of you have owned both and have thoughts.
I guess W211 E500 is a little more modern..........performance is similar (?)
Any input appreciated

Inspired by a thread on another forum I use, I thought I'd pop up a question about us, the owners of a quality marque.
How seriously do you take other material items in your life ?

Ok so after having had it for about a year I decided a little while ago that I'll be keeping my 2003 W211 E320 cdi for a while and that I should invest a little time and money in preventative maintenance, restoring some of it's good looks and doing a few little upgrades to keep me happy :D
I've got £6,500 to spend.
I'm after a C Class. I have a few questions to ask.
