  1. Although just a standard GT roadster I use this as a daily and love it, came from an SL550 so not as luxurious but still not bad and my girl friend has not complained.
  2. Take care what you use or you may end up with this. (08 LP640) I think either goof off or some thing else I tried did this. On the Ferrari forum I think they suggested using Easy off oven cleaner but search around and you will find many recommendations, I ended up changing my buttons out but the new ones became sticky very quickly so I think it is just an age thing and not a use problem, not noticeable in the picture but the whole housing not just the buttons are sticky. The solution seems to be having the buttons refinished, that was what I ended up doing but you need to remove them and send them off. The two main companies that do this work are both good I believe. On another note I have lost one of my buttons from the instrument binnacle, 08 LP640 the button that has the 2 zeros on it and am having a hard time finding a replacement, any suggestions?
  3. My Mercedes sl550 had a problem with condensation in the headlights, the fix was a better sealing rear boot and some desiccant packets inserted in the lights. This was an official Mercedes fix.
  4. Did you do it from under the car? I had mine done a year or so ago and they took the trunk lining out and did it from the top. I dont remember them complaining but when I asked them to do it they said good as they have seen them go bad.
  5. What other things are connected to that fuse? How easy was the swap using the gruven assemblies? I need to do this to mine asap.
  6. Its to show the mirror heaters are on, should go off after 10 or 15 mins of driving.
  7. Thanks for the clarification, I have a Balloon white Murci and after 10 years need to have the clear bra changed as it is going yellow, fingers crossed please? Do you know why he had it unwrapped ?
  8. I had a whole bunch of interior buttons/switches refinished on my Murci including the R button, sticky no more did the job I think. I now have lost the 0.0 button from the instrument cluster and am looking for a replacement for that, anyone?
  9. I am lost. The car was originally black then repainted white then wrapped grey then the grey wrap was removed messing up the clear coat on the white, or did he wrap it grey to cover the bad clear coat?
  10. I bet you managed to knock some crud from the contactors so it is now working, I think it is a pain but I have seen threads about removing the starter with the engine in place.
  11. arrg, sorry for your bad luck, I must say I saw your pictures with the tiled floor and thought that looks dangerous, much better to do this sort of thing over a carpet or soft floor. I learned that many years ago when making propotypes and destroying days of work with a stupid slip.
  12. I have read some threads in the past where the murci solenoid gets crap in it and although it clicks as though it is moving it is not fully moving and not making the contact that puts the 12 volts high amp feed to the starter motor, to test the starter you need to jump a feed from the battery straight to the starter terminal, (this will be on the input side of the solenoid) if the starter turns it is most probably a gunked up solenoid. I am not sure if you can remove the solenoid without removing the starter though? A solenoid is really just a relay where a low current feed pulls in a contactor to supply a high current feed.
  13. seen this years ago buy had forgotten how good the SV sounds.
  14. Something is wrong as the light should not come on at all, it only comes on when a problem is seen. My light comes on sometimes and I need to turn the battery off to reset it, I think I have a problem with the 2 stages as my spoiler sometimes fully extends when I am only going about 60 mph, this seems to be when the dash light comes on.
  15. Can anyone point me in the direction of the thread for repairing Murci door mirrors, think it was titled something like who need new $1000 door mirrors? Thanks as mine seem to be getting loose and temperamental ready to fail.

    New Site

    Yes, I'm pretty sure it is just a stop gap until the new site is ready.
  17. RIP, was always a fun part of the show, what did he die of?
  18. When you say "tries to turn over but cant" do you mean the starter engages the engine and it moves but not enough to crank or do you mean it seems as the engine is seized? When it died did it come to a stop with the engine turning or did it lock up? would still be best to put a new battery in and try as that has worked on many strange situations in a murcy.
  19. We had some Staffordshire bull terriers in England when we were kids, you are correct, they are loving and loyal dogs to their owners but we had to get rid of ours as they are also very protective of their owners and would become very nasty towards other people or animals if they thought our/ their territory was being invades. It is not worth the liability or worry to own one.
  20. Agree, kind of like having a "tame" big cat. sooner or later it will get pissed or just a little annoyed and take a bite, why put yourself or others in harms way. Also on topic, yes shoot the fuckers that fight dogs or abuse any animal for that matter.
  21. I kept waiting for someone to check the guy out and then the video ended, no one even moved fast, just milling around. F'ers
  22. I would agree if you are just pissed off with life at the moment but sometimes mental illness and also prescription drugs can alter your perception of things.
  23. Yes the standing start thing that stig uses is really just for fun as it includes a drag race to the first corner and as we know some really fast cars are not good at drag races and vice versa, its the same thing for qualifying lap times in racing.
