    Hi folks, I have ( I had thought) disabled the auto door locking feature on my 2012 C Class in case I get locked out. Book says it locks automatically if the wheels are turning and the engine is running. I turned it off at the start of my last trip by holding the 'unlock' button until I heard...

    Osram Nightbreakers Turned Yellow

    I've had H7 Osram Nightbreaker + in for a couple of years now, I'm sure they weren't this yellow when I first fitted them. Is it likely that they have turned yellow over time ?

    Look what turned up on our driveway this morning!

    Found this on our driveway this morning. The tree surgeons use the PTO at the rear to drive their chipper - you wouldn't want to fall into that! Great use for an older vehicle.

    Diamond turned alloys

    Well, the winter hasn't been kind to the ('diamond turned') alloys on the Kia and they started to go milky on one of the edges. (Not as bad as the AMG ones on the CLK though :/ ) So the nice man at Kia replaced all four free of charge :rock::rock::thumb: I've looked on the web, and I can't...
