Re: Some fancy 116 wheels

In terms of appearance, my preference for W116's has always been colour coded steel hub caps, with the Mercedes star in the centre.

In terms of shoes, Imelda Marcos always led the way. :)

Re: WANTED: Front Bumper Bar For CLK

I will ask at Parramatta Smash repairs - they do almost all exclusive Mercedes work. They always like to get genuine approved Mercedes parts.
For that reason,
don't build up your hope too much....

Re: used car trade in values

How about a 10 year old Holden V8 in average condition?

How about any 10 year old hybrid car in above average condition, that needs a new battery?

Re: Car of the week

Not too surprising, to my way of thinking.

My first Holden was one of those horrid 4 Cylinder 1750 Toranas, (Vauxhall Viva derived), with the Bedford light truck engine !
I wouldn't mind if I...

Re: Linnwood House Display

I have strong personal memories of the black Wolseley 18 / 85 that is pictured.
My grandfather purchased it as a new car in 1948. I was able to positively identify it, because the steering column...

Re: The end of the 6.9 road :-(

If you are parting company with a 6.9,
buy a W211 supercharged E55 AMG. They go faster ! :D

Re: Commodore

Any Australian V8 Commodore is very likely to hang onto it's current market value, at whatever condition level it happens to be in.

Re: Polished W126 Wheels

They look OK to me but
it would be essential that they are PROPERLY prepared and finished with a good quality protective clear lacquer, to keep them that way.

Re: New 17 & 18 Barocks

The only reason why I have low profile tires and monoblocks on the 55
is because they are original equipment for the car.

I guess that Mercedes is supposed to know better than I,
and that the...

Re: New 17 & 18 Barocks

Look better than the 18" monoblocks I have on the 55.

Having said, that I am not really a fan of low profile tires.
I guess that is due to the ride I became used to in my 6.9, with 15" wheels and...

Shell Caltex & BP 98 are all OK. Cleaning agents have been added to premium fuels for about 10 years so far.

If such a problem exists as a result of soft metal used for the sprocket wheel,
AND
the car has not been serviced every six months from new,
THEN
wear can be detected in the camshaft lobes.

The problem with the quad cam V8 M273 engine and the V6 M272 engine was that the sprocket wheel that drives the timing chains wears out prematurely.
This allows the distribution of fine metal...
