    Two SL bargains needing a little TLC...

    Buy the car @£4495.00, sell the wheels for £1200, scrap the car = loss of £3295.00, surely.

    Everyone Should Watch This

    One of the scariest places is the car park. Motorists become pedestrians and pedestrians become motorists, right before our eyes. I see stupid driving and dopey pedestrians constantly. In the end we have to acknowledge that the motorist is the one with the deadly weapon.

    Interesting article on Diesel engines.

    A first class piece of writing. I love cars but have no experience of maintenance. I understood the article. Highly informative.

    I just got roasted for insurance..big time.

    Trumps difficulties arise when he is faithfully reported verbatim. He is surely the least articulate President ever to have held the office, certainly in my lifetime. He dislikes the media because it reports his words & actions. Scrutiny is his enemy. His repetition of the phrase,'Fake News' is...

    I just got roasted for insurance..big time.

    Denigrating mainstream media has done terrible damage in America. The easily-led have swallowed it hook, line & sinker and now believe that Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are genuine sources of information. There's a constituency for this drivel even in our own country, God help us all.

    Ceramic paint treatment?

    Big claims for longevity come with the territory. They're also uncheckable. If you leave your car tucked away in the garage, the shine will last indefinitely. If you venture out onto the road, it depends what the roads are like, surface, weather, traffic. And of course if you live by the sea...

    Modern cars & lucky escape on A19 this morning (daughter-in-law)

    Sorry to read of this accident, just glad no one was hurt. The bent metal is covered by insurance, personal injuries are a whole different matter.

    One rear tyre wearing unevenly

    I took the car to check the tracking and got all four wheels rebalanced. Our bumpy road surfaces had taken their toll. Glad to have sorted it. A closer look at the paperwork reveals that the tyres have done 8,500 miles, so my first post was unintentionally misleading.

    One rear tyre wearing unevenly

    Four new Continental contact Sport 5 fitted 2,500 miles back. Hunter tracking done at the same session. My nearside rear tyre is worn on the inside edge. The others are all doing fine. What causes this & what's the fix?

    The New S Class Has Arrived

    Just curious Barry, is this for private use or do you run a limousine service? It's a really impressive car. Driving or riding in comfort.
