    I absolutely agree with everything said here. If you are going to implement a rule, implement it 100% or don't implement it at all. The end was shambolic and Mercedes have every right to call foul...

    I frenched my fog lamp into the valence below the boot lid. But that was a couple of years ago. Passed SVA in 2004 so no idea if it’s at the correct height. The fog lamp was only a few quid but it...

    I guess I’m just over cautious and under trustful. To me it just seems that since the UK came out of Europe we have been treated a little unfairly, even childishly by many of the European...
