    Thoughts on a GT?

    There seems to be a few GT models around with tiny mileages in the £80/90k area. Is it likely that values will drop significantly further in the next couple of years or do an SLS? I'm not in any hurry and it will probably be my last foray into this stuff but is now a good time to buy? Info on...

    Thoughts?

    So.. I just took ownership of a 14 plate CLS 350. Brilliant car. But I have since discovered a poorly repaired key scratch on the right rear quarter panel so much so that when you run your hand through it, you can feel it. Yes I missed it when I inspected the car. I bought it from as an approved...

    Been playing with a spray can....... thoughts ???

    Been thinking about putting another colour on the C63's lower front spoiler, I initially did it with 3M Wrap, but it just didn't have the glossy finish I was after. Having done a bit of spraying in the past, I decided to go the whole way and bought myself a can of BMW Mini Chilli Red. I prepared...

    Thoughts on the 211 star badge grill? Yes or no?

    So I've recently updated the front of my car I was never convinced on the star badge grill but after I colour coded it and the theme of the car being silver and black it looked better than I thought I'm not sure putting the original grill back on painted gloss black (no chrome on the car) would...

    Benz On The Green 2018 @ GOODWOOD. Your thoughts?

    Hi Everyone, As the title suggests, what would you think of Benz On The Green being held at Goodwood next year? Our thought process is that we are sadly outgrowing the pub and Goodwood would be a fantastic place to hold the event, with the capacity of the Chicane Paddock and Hurricane Lawn...

    Random questions and thoughts about my new E300 hybrid

    So I've done close to 600 miles in my new E300 Hybryd and wanted to share a few thoughts about it and also ask a few questions. Is it just me or is the gear lever counter intuitive to use? I feel like pressing forward should be Drive and pulling backwards should be reverse, but it's the...

    R Class - starting problems - any thoughts?

    For a while now, when starting from cold, the engine turns over fine, but doesn't start for about 8-10 seconds, followed by a small cloud of dark exhaust fumes at the back. It hasn't got worse (or better), but starts fine when warmed up. Batteries are fairly new. Any ideas what the...

    Selenite Grey with Red Leather - Thoughts

    Ordered a C43 AMG with Black leather with Red stitching seat option but on further reviewing these seats see that they have used strips of Alantara and also you have to have the Red seat belts and for me its a bit boy racer. Interestingly the Red leather option seats are slightly different in...
