Well, it is now passed the MOT - £20 anti roll bar mounting bracket and a bit of exhaust welding (will replace in due course if it behaves). Insurance - added it to the classic policy the SL500 is on, which runs out in 5 weeks. Got ripped off for that - £10 for 5 weeks, I ask you...... Did the insurance yesterday, went to tax it on line this morning - and can't as it isn't recorded as insured on their database yet...Rats! Need it on the road to take it for a longish run to see what the problem with running really is. It is a bit of a pain at cold. Starts fine but hesitant to idle and can stall when put into D. But when warm (well 3 miles worth of warm) seems to be fine. According to seller, it was pretty much undriveable so more investigation needed. And doing things in the complete wrong order, now have 2 replacement front wings for it so getting carried away. But it looks great sitting there. SL500 still waiting to get the ETA back from the US - all ready but hurricane sandy has interrupted the postal service. Rats again. And was looking at 2000/2001 CL500s today. I need help.... Need to change my name from Lanciaman methinks..
