Re: w116 280se shannons

I spotted this car a day or two ago on the Shannons website. I'll be interested to read a more detailed synopsis of the car when available - but have no interest in purchasing.

Re: 450SEL for sale

This car ceraintly wouldn't fit my criteria for purchase - but the interior at least looks to be in not half bad shape. Pity about the 'improvements' to the exterior.

Re: Cruise control in wet weather?

Re: Would you buy a 1997 C200?

We bought a 2000 W202 C200 Elegance on impulse just over a year ago. It is the greatest little thing since sliced bread.

The only minor thing we've had to replace is the boot hinge due to metal...

Re: Mini Cooper S - Goodwood

Completely agree with you, Mr Moderator.

Given that only 1000 are to be produced, I would have to wonder if Mini would bother making it in a RHD version. If not, it automatically rules Australia...

Re: Mini Cooper S - Goodwood

Great link Styria!
I was caught looking at the link with an expression on my face - possibly along the lines of "if we sold the C-Class, we could use it as a commute car" (keeping in mind that the...

Re: Clear coat restoration

In my experiences, I would prefer to give my detailing job to somebody who will take longer to do the job 'right'.

Re: 2010 MBCNSW Concours

Can anybody possibly tell me the name of the colour green of the centre car please? It seems to be relatively uncommon in Australia - but looks stunning when preserved as well at that example.

I'm also grateful that the design of the column itself is now far more svelte
