Surely increased safety was the primary objective...? An all-in-one drag anchor and buoyancy aid!
We have a VW T5, VW Crafter, CR-V with a caravan, a BMW 3 and my car going with 13 of us so space is not a problem for all the kit that includes a Gazebo (Kitchen), massive dome tent for the dining area, Awning on the T5, Awning on the caravan that doubles the size of it and the Crafter is a camper
Yeh but... a trailer full of cider would be a backup in case of drought
There is... It's to stop Rose falling down the stairs after too much wine!
(actually it's because her infant grandson is coming over later in the week).
Glad to hear its lovely and chilly
I always wondered is one supposed to change this gas/liquid as a mileage or age service item , or is it a “leave it till its broke” thing?
One of my SLs needed a top up, but they did t mention a leak ... but then under warranty so didnt matter.
Worked fine till I sold it.
Took it to one of our resident guru independents for a service any to change the crank pulley and belt idler. Had a great chat and picked up a few tips.
I don’t believe it’s a service item Peter, so leave until the performance drops off I guess. MB told me it’s normally good at least every 2 years, but mine was last done only June last year and the level had dropped considerably. It was pressure tested and found OK and had a dye test too so no leaks. I’m not sure now whether it was done properly or filled to the correct level last year, but I’ve no way of knowing now.
I’ll monitor it obviously a little more carefully now. MB Cheshire oaks charged me £49.99 (normally £84.99 allegedly) so I’m not too bothered. I noted ATS charge the same price...
Mine is very cold and I have never had it done in the 3.5 years I have owned it, might have it done this year as my Indy usually puts an offer on soon at £35
The 210 passed it’s MoT with no advisories so very pleased, the tester even praised the bodywork I’d done in the wheel wells so all in all a very good day
It needs to earn it’s keep now it has numerous trips to the tip to do for family members from disposing of washing machines and tumble dryers to old house doors I get all the best jobs lol
John ... fortunately no issues as mine is very chiily ATM
£50 wow thats a brilliant price.
My neighbour had a local place do and had some problems, and the BMW garage said they had used the wrong stuff. Sorting it cost a lot she said but all solved ... so think definitely worth going to MB. Especially at £50!
nipped up the front wheel bearings on the 221 and investigated the knocking from the front end , ARB's are up the swanny
PARTY AT JB'S PLACE!!!!!
Striped the front end down to fit new headlight washer jets.
Drove the Applecross pass. A few times. Economy not so good today.....
216 got another layer of polish before the sun got to hot this morning
Another day, another lot of stainless to clean.
These bits could take some time...
And here was me thinking my cleanliness OCD was quite bad,
I am in awe of your commitment!
It's just that they can seem from the side of the car and looked horrible. That's just the first pass which they have had so far, on my last car I managed to get them really clean and shiny, practically like chrome.
Dave hasn't been committed yet Jimbo..... the application is still in progress!
Are you after Rash's crown
