Is it worth getting independent view, is it the doors themselves or bad fitting?

This was mine:

Took it around Europe, cracking car. If 3.2 expired I would consider one if I could find one!

Webby, you must source a 24v one. Most will be rotten, so either learn how to weld or know someone who does.

K should be 24v, I loved mine. Really nice engine to work on, great character, 4K rpm surge always brought a smile.

Good luck with it  :y

Keep the R class or buy a newer one :-\

The newest R Class is 2012 and I think this car is going to cost in the future .....  :-\ I've had it 7 yrs. I think I'm due another car.  ;)
Previous E Class... Good for 2,100kgs ;)

But doesn't weigh much different from an Omega

E-Class also very uncomfortable, poor infotainment setup and not very economical.

I ran one for a month, 2014 E220 Estate, AMG trim. I looked forward to getting my 3.2 back!

The NCDC units were crap anyway, in my view.

CD would constantly be spat out in morning, due to condensation the the disc. The maps were very old, to the verge of being pointless. They donít take full postcode, often struggled with industrial estates or where no traditional road/number.

Waze on the other hand, start app, says are you going home? Tap go and boom, multiple options based on live traffic data and dynamic routing updating as you go, based on traffic. Not once has it given me issues in position/routing.

At least they hit a bus, not another car which would have made it far worse.

Droplinks typically show up as worn, when going over speed bumps. But you say nothing going over them?
Easily to test, car in air both sides at front. Wiggle the droplink for play, usually very easy to detect. Even I can see it on old GM ones fitted to 3.2 before Meyle went on.

Suspect something else though.  :-\

You need to have clocked up 250 posts.

Post your wanted add in test zone, some kind admin will move it.

Good outcome!
Do you feel about 6" taller than before you got that postal confirmation. I know I would!

He'd better be on the lookoout for low flying aircraft at this rate. ;D

I thought I saw a NOTAM for the Farnborough area ::)

General Discussion Area / Parking Ticket - Win
« on: 07 February 2019, 10:59:24 »
So we parked in Farnborough retail park a few weeks ago, it's recently been expanded and there are loads of new places. As we are doing an extension, we spent quite a lot of time in furniture places etc. Rather than move the car from one free bit to another, we left it in same spot. We went over the "3 Hour" limit, I received a letter in the post asking me to pay a £60 parking charge.

The letter was addressed to me, as the keeper, with a photo of the car when we drove in.

Quick Google suggested these are basically scams, I've had it successfully cancelled as I was under no obligation to state who the driver was, only that I was the keeper.

I sent this (stolen from the web)

Dear Sirs


I am the registered keeper of the above vehicle and am in receipt of the PCN you issued. I have no liability on this matter as you have failed to meet the requirements of Schedule 4 of The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 namely, but not limited to, failing to give the warning to the keeper, contrary to section 9 (2) (f) of the Act. You cannot therefore transfer liability from the driver at the time to me. There is no legal requirement to identify the driver at the time and I will not be doing so. Any further communication with me on this matter, apart from confirmation of no further action and my details being removed from your records, will be considered vexatious and harassment. This includes communication from any Debt Collection companies you care to instruct. Kind Regards.

Just had this in response:

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your correspondence relating to your Parking Charge Notice (PCN).
Further to your representations, we have investigated your claims and can confirm that your Notice has subsequently been cancelled in full and no further action will be taken.
Yours faithfully,
Highview Parking Ltd

 :D :D

Just FYI - If anyone else gets one of these things  :y
