    It will only be the heads that go rusty, all newer MB's I have owned have had rusty bolt heads.

    Changed the AGM main battery for a Varta unit from Tanya. The old battery was seven years old and been meaning to change it but thought it would get through the winter months (wrong) and now have the dreaded Stop/Start function back so that has to be turned off at start-up (grrrr). Anyway fairly easy job apart from the weight of the battery and all functions seem go so well pleased

    Which isn’t an issue with the normal bolts but is a major issue with the locking one... :(

    Top down motoring around the M25, (the concrete section sounds like you’ve a flat tyre). Still great fun though and +16’ as there’s an awful lot of hot air in the South :rolleyes::p

    I live nearby and the tunnel is a massive improvement over the years of congestion, but a noisy place with the roof down.

    Couple of days ago now but this is the first time I’ve managed to get on the forum, managed to bring our little one home from the hospital after 8 days, mum wasn’t too well but this was little ones first experience of a Mercedes, think she liked it.

    Thanks chaps, yes mum is now doing well after a blood clot and uterus infection.
    She slept all the way home from the hospital so I think she was very snug in the boat, daddies driving was a little more subdued compared to normal, will try harder in the future when she’s a little more used to road trips

    I've always maintained that first trip home from the hospital is the slowest and most careful drive of your life.
