    BMW850 failed MOT (I'm not surprized), power steering was not right, then the CL55 AMG went into "Limp Home" mode on the way back from the previous garage. Throttle Sensor failure, so now the Merc is at another garage :-( Whats gonna be the third thing??????

    Yes, I saw you asking for indie recomendations. I see you're in Wimbledon (I used to live there), if no luck I use TM Motors in Walton on Thames. Not too far and they have loan a car (which I currently have) :)

    Throttle sensor replaced, now as good a new once again.
    I have to laugh as it came as a whole new pedal, so in effect I'd actually worn the pedal out. There's a first, but I'm NOT surprized :)
    Thank you TM Motors once again, who also have the poshest loo I've EVER seen in a garage :)
