Hi everyone... I haven't been on here for a long time... I used to have a couple of mercs in the UK, then had a couple of BMWs and Audis.... then I moved to USA in January with my job for a couple of years and thought I would go back to Mercs. I bought a C63 AMG 2010 and GL550 2011. The GL550...
Hello folks, I'm going 'home' in June for a walk down memory lane in my Uni town and home town in Illinois in a month or so. Tonight I've been trying to check the legal drink driving level in my home state, but I'm confused. The Illinois level is 0.08%. The U.K. level speaks of microgrammes...

Interesting article on how regulatory differences between Europe and the USA means huge costs for car manufacturers.

From San Francisco airport (or a reasonable cab ride from)
Would want ideally a Dodge 2500 or Ford F250.

I thought I would be clever and get the throttle pedal from USA as I am on holiday there and my car logged the same fault twice.
The USA merc dealer couldn't source the part even though I had the part number. He just said that the part number I gave him was not availble in the USA and the...
I ordered extended paddles from VIVID USA (Months ago ) and they are giving me a right *ucking about,

Quinton Wilson has just returned from America where he refuelled a Mustang from empty to full for £26.

New Merc. units are a ridiculous price, and I haven't been able to locate the correct used replacement in this country. But have located a couple in the states; all the reference/part numbers match.
Has anyone done this? I've spotted a cat back s/s system for sale in Texas. It's 340USD plus 220USD shipping. Does anybody have any idea what taxes etc might be payable.

Off to the US next month for a few days and wondering what the best option is for getting a card for roaming data access.
Will camp out on WiFi where possible but looks like I will need to use local the networks as well at times.
With great excitement I approached the rental bays at Orlando airport to see what a premium car would be.
It transpires it's a very nearly new Nissan Maxima. Never heard of one? It's fairly large, solidly built and cruises well. 3.5v6 petrol hitched to a CVT gearbox. Plastics are a tad...
