    I gave the Mercedes an oil and filter change over the weekend, this included having to buy a 14-sided filter housing removal tool (why Mercedes? Why?) but another tool in my arsenal for future use. Overall the job wasn't too bad, but having to remove both undertrays to get at the sump plug was a faff. However, the front wheels are basically right in the front corners so I had no issues getting it up onto my ancient set of ramps which have rather a steep rise angle.
    Anyway, it runs a treat and delivered about 37mpg over 5 gallons which is entirely acceptable. I checked the plugs and air filter but they were all fine, backing up the service history suggesting it had been given a full service in summer 2018, about 8k miles ago. Overall its a great car, and has been heavily utilised taking loads of old shit to the dump recently in advance of the big move at the end of the month.

    The journey began in Ipswich, home of the tractor boys dontcha know. 
    Now in london’s Famous London, home of extinction rebellion and stinky toilets. As I can think of no other reason to be using public transport this early on a Saturday, presumably a lot of £300 Micras and the like are getting collected today!

    Well it’s WTF o’clock on a day off, it must be an autoshite collection. Off to the ends of the earth for a car which, if I looked longer/harder, I could probably find within 10 miles of my house. But where’s the romance in that!
    so, train number 1, with some other sleepy-eyed types who presumably are off to collect a 13 year old mondeo or something....

    I like your thinking, @barefoot. That is a vehicle that would actually justify such a ridiculous journey. If you have a line on such a beast let us know!
    it turns out London to Manchester is a fucking long way, so I’m letting the train take the strain again. I shouldn’t complain though - the guy on the other side of the aisle is heading to Aberdeen to pick up a Rover 45, and the guard has to spend all tomorrow going to Dawlish to collect the Kia Picanto he ‘won’ for £160 on eBay...
