    Very sorry to hear this, the times I came across him on the other side he was very helpful and knowledgeable.

    For me, the true measure of a man is whether he's tried to leave this planet a better place and I think Malcolm has done that.

    Never met Malcolm but have seen the level of help he has offered to hundreds of people.

    It was kind of expected but as said it is still a blow.

    God Bless you Malcolm

    Sad news, I cannot recall any meaningful contact with him but mainly enjoyed his posts.

    I get the impression that he can look back on life and know that he did some interesting things with it.

    I'm hoping to make it, albeit I'm in Houston on a job which may run over (hoping not). I bought an SL from Malcolm, true gentleman - I hope to be there and meet up with those of you I've not met yet....

    My CLK seat works properly, thanks to Television......

    Such sad news for the Thesaurus of Mercedes knowledge

    Will be away on holiday, but I am sure it will be well attended and everything Malcolm and the family want it to be.

    Very helpful, generous bloke but God could he get wound up if someone disagreed with him, usually to the extent he ended up with a long ban from which ever forum he was on at the time.

    One of those personalities that makes the world a more interesting place.

    Never met Television, but he helped me here and on the otherside after he was banned from here. Always went out of his way to help those with less technical nous:thumb::rock:
    Superb font of knowledge - the world needs more people like him - he will be missed:(

    Malcolm was generous with his time and knowledge.
    He's helped me with a few niggles, - parking sensors, Bose sound system / D2b, and dash switches spring to mind.

    Saved me a fortune, and lots of time. (And I'm sure many more of us)

    I salute you Sir. Thank you.
