    It's the little things

    A quiet day in the office and I've been thinking about stuff that we buy and how we buy it. I've a policy of negotiating hard on the big stuff like houses and cars, I'll have a go on smaller stuff like furniture and so on but won't compromise on the little things. Take soap for example...

    W213 - Anyone found some strange things with new Comand NTG 5.5 sat nav?

    I have updated to the latest UK maps on my new E350. Lots of strange things but one REALLY annoying one. When you get to a junction I am told keep left to turn right and vis versa. It also shows in the lane indicators in the screens. So, "take the right hand Lane and then take the first exit on...

    Cheap e500 estate and other nice things

    Used Cars for sale in Oxford, Oxfordshire | Vehicle Sourcing Ltd e500 has poor spec but for £2k I can't really see you could go too far wrong. On winter tyres and high miles but if it has a resaonable SH it could make a good hack for a couple of years. 850 looks nice too.

    Scratches on paintwork - T-Cut or have things moved on?

    The tops of the wings on my G and the bonnet have quite a few scratches that could do with being polished out. I suspect good old T-Cut is passe now, so any recommendations on a good compound to use by hand (I don't have a machine) on black paintwork please? Thanks
