    I think that could be because the ramps are facing the wrong way BC! Have you tried pointing the pointy ends at the front of the car? :D

    I have, I could have driven it up but I’d be in the market for a new bumper if I did :(.

    Took it into Mercedes Southampton for its first A Service. They even did a free map update to Comand without me asking (I didn’t want to bother this year because I just wanted a quick while-u-wait service). They also gave me a free “Brussels” key ring which, I see, retails at £9 on the MB website. Quite impressed overall.

    Even better, of course, because I didn’t have to pay for it after they threw in a two year service contract free of charge when they messed up on the delivery on my car. Took me back to my old company car days when I could just walk away after a service without getting my wallet out!

    Gave the UnMerc a bit of TLC after the last week+ of gales & torrential rain.

    Mrs stole my normal spot whilst I was away last week, so car was sporting most of neighbour's tree after the weekend storms.

    Thought I'd give it another decontamination, then test the Meguiar's Ceramic Spray I bought 2 weeks ago.... Will see what happens when it rains later!

    Took it in for recall on the ECU software update, and had the maps updated on the full Comand system. Took 3 hours.

    On the short run home it seemed more responsive and smoother, subjective I know. Will monitor fuel consumption to see if any adverse effects.

    Whilst sat drinking coffee and eating biscuits had clear headspace to put together a presentation for inspiring youngsters to consider STEM careers next Weds. 12-15 minutes to a group of 30 students at a time, 9 times in the day. Thoroughly enjoyable it will be. See, us white males can do anything, as well as create all the worlds ills :geek::D:cool::cool:

    Went and checked the results of yesterday's endeavours, after a big hail storm and much rain overnight.

    There is Boris desperately pimping himself around the country for every vote.
    And all he has to do is drop Petrol down to 85p a litre .... and he would get a landslide! :)

    At lunch to-day my Sister said in the event of an impending frost she had an application that she sprayed on the screen at night and the screen didn't ice up. She was unable to tell me what it was. Anybody know anything about this stuff ??
