    Variable Speed Gantry Cameras - some info

    I was at Autosport International last weekend, chatting to a couple of West Midlands police officers on their stand. I asked about the functionality of said cameras when the gantry speed limit signs appeared to be switched off, i.e, without a nominated maximum speed showing. They...

    M1 Variable Speed Limits

    Took a trip from the midlands to London today, there and back on the M1. On the way there, the variable limits were in operation between Luton and Hemel, slowing us down to 50 for several miles. The gantry signs said something about an accident, but there was no evidence of one. No Police, no...

    Is the level of Variable Power Sterring Assistance Adjustable?

    May seem a daft question, but I am new to my W211, and am 'disappointed' to find the car feels still feels heavy despite the dealers being unable to find anything wrong. The reason for the question is that I know that Skoda Octavia VRSs for example, have 'hidden menus' in their ECUs that allow...

    E350 Variable Brake Lights

    Anyone else noticed a change in the bright LED brake lights? I used to chuckle when stopping at traffic lights at cars that insisted on tucking up my rear end only for them to cover their faces with their hands due to the mega bright brake LEDS but I noticed a change in how they come on now. I...

    W124 E280 variable intake system

    For the past 5 months my E280 (W124) has not missed a beat, no fault codes. Perfect, except for one thing, it doesn’t have typical mid ranch punch that it should i.e. the surge at 3500 rpm. This car seems to pick up at about 4500 rpm, a 1000rpm later than it should. Personally, I’m convinced...

    Anyone know if these things are armed, if they are showing nothing (in other words national speed limit applies) Driving back from Knutsford today, noted an awful lot of people on the toll road going rather rapidly, and seemingly ignoring the cameras. If it did pop up with a Red Circle and a...

    How Variable is a Variable Servicing interval

    I've just spent several hours at Mercedes Birmingham trying to work out why my car thinks it needs a service after only 9000 odd miles. Given that I drive a E320 CDI and allot of my mileage is motorway (about 300 miles per week, aprox 190m of which is motorway, 75m dual carriageway (40-50mph)...

    A150 - Variable Transmission?

    Due to ongoing problems with my Smart Roadster which I've concluded was built on a Friday afternoon by careless, left handed monkeys who were drunk I've been issued with an A Class 'courtesy' car. This 1000 mile, 07 reg A150 Elegance is automatic, and if I put my foot hard down the revs jump...
