Booked the SL in to have some electrical work carried out on the plug and wiring on the ECU.
Hope the water hasn't found it's way into the mother board :eek:
However, top down drive to work today......as normal :D..........Oh I didn't see that one coming, I mentioned SL and water in the same sentence :shock:

Today I have gazed longingly at the 221 out of my office window, then back to the solidly double- booked calendar and the hours of Teams meetings ahead of me. And cried a little.

Crying sat in an S class is better than crying in a Ford :cool:

Hmmm, I can sense a wet joke in the making, cry produces wet water type of liquid which in turn fines it's way through r230 seals..........No crying near my r230 please!!!!!

I like spending time in my SLK, I really do… however 9hrs (7 hrs driving and 2 hrs parked on M1 with engine off) to do a normally 3.75-4hr journey wasn’t my plan for today.
Still the seats were comfortable and I’ve no back pain:), AC could do with a re-gas though :(

The worst I ever had was a 9hr drive from Sunderland back to Warwick in my old H-reg Astra. That was... painful.

Had a lovely 4 night break in Poole this week ,weather was superb,, but the traffic coming back today was murder, 4 hours to do a 2.30 journey.
Car (ML 270) was comfy and effortless though, surprisingly economical at such slow speeds as well.

Today, I have:

transferred the toolkit & reserve fuel can from the CL into the new S Class- took a bit of adaptation, as the S Class has its jack in the wheel barrel unlike the CL, where the jack clips into the platform metal next to the wheel. Weirdly this car came with 3 OEM warning triangles! 473F6957-0335-4864-8E1D-2C7404A284E7.jpeg

and replaced the broken door mirror indicator (has its own thread):
