LOL This is awsome, mine was behaving pretty well so I did wash itI give mine nothing but a derogatory comment on the way past it in the garage. But I did give it a service with new spark plugs and belt about two weeks ago and I think it might get a wash later this afternoon if it's well behaved.
Interesting, its not a bad brand at all, my BMW s had Conti, my Porsche has Conti and W140 has Conti too, havent had any problems yet but now you mentioned it I might as well go check again even though I replaced it about a month agoWhats crazy is that i changed my belt out last year and i only put about 8,000 miles a year on it,and the belt is still cracking in a short time.I used conti as the brand not sure if this is a good brand or not.
Regarding flatspots on tires, I had seen some adds about this product called flatstoppers, its supposed to cure flatspots when you leave the car on a halt for a considerable time in the garage, do you have any info on that?Not too sure if you adress me there TasmanianDevil but if i can give an Hint off what could happen after the 3 weeks .
After the 3 Weeks that i didnt drive the Car , on 1st Start up she started instantly , Once the Car heated up and on Acceleration from Standing Start ,she hestitated a bit with the AC on .
I suspected that it was the Petrol to Old that it lost its Power ,I fill'd her up and the Problem was gone ,smooth as again .
The Tyres had a slight Flatspot but just a little wich solved itself after a few Km's ,probably because they are New .Other than this No major Dramas exept that i had to put up driving with Nissans /Ford's and Mitsubishi's ,LOL.
So in Short ,before you Store the Car dont fill the Petrol Tank leave it Empty like i did , fill it on Next Use of the Car .:thumbsup:
LOL Oh my, that does sound awsome indeed but as you had pointed out I could imagine how costly it could be since even a decent lifter is a lot of dough.No ,But i nearly installed 4 Automatically actvated Jacks under the Car at one Stage , I gave up as the Project cost more than the Car and the Concrete it stands on ,there is however info about it here on the Forum ,its one off my Posts too i thing .
