    Mercedes Benz W202

    We had a C220 Diesel a long time ago. It was a very nice car but the C220 version suffered from a problamatic Diesel Injector pump. For some reason most of the C220 in SL had had the Diesel pumps fail and replaced. I would recommend you go for the C250 which was from what I hear didnt suffer the same faults with the engine.

    Triumph T R Restore Project

    In most old cars its basically an additional small gearbox (epicyclic gearbox) that is strapped on at the back of the gearbox giving an increased gear ratio to the output of the gearbox. So basically all gear ratios are increased when the overdrive is engaged. Its mainly used to let the engine cruise at a lower RPM when cruising at high speed for long periods (i.e highways) to lower the strain on the engine. http://auto.howstuffworks.com/automatic-transmission8.htm

    2013 Range Rover

    I think it looks stunning but the price has gone up significantly. Here in the UK they start at £71k whereas they used to start around £55k I think.

    Mercedes Benz C220Cdi On Permit

    Yes the 520D does not do anywhere near the MPG figures that BMW quote. In stop start traffic without auto start/stop the real life figures are 25-30mpg (8-10 km/l) and highway/motorway cruising 40-50mpg or a bit more (14-18 km/l). Still quite good for such a big car with such a small engine.

    Automobile Engineering

    The BEng (Bachelor of Engineering) is a specialist degree usually leading to accreditation from professional bodies (i.e CEng). The BSc Engineering follows a broader curriculum and is not recognised by professional bodies.

    Thank you Sampath for the great info and thank you Mr Hettiarachchi if you are reading this for that glimpse of the past. Being an avid enthusiast of all things historical it was very nice to read through what you had written. Im sure there will be many more people here who would love to hear more.
