There is no problem with running an extension lead outside, as long as there's no joint, of course! I do it all the time. Then you can swap the charger from car-to-car depending on which you are...

Don't see why not. It won't look as good as chromed metal, but would be a low-cost way to spruce up parts.

You have basically answered your own question on why the Mercedes belt is more chunky. It does more.

Most will tow to a place of your choice, not just the nearest garage, so you just get it taken home.

Bear in mind that a lot of the breakdown schemes won't come out to a car over 15 years old - check the small print. I have personal cover with the AA, which covers me for whatever car I'm driving,...

Well, it clearly isn't snake oil, which is a rather dismissive way to describe something that you just don't want to use yourself.

I don't use it, but it is a valid coolant, that many people do...

I tapped the holes and fitted button-head screws. The £110 cost of the caps is way more than you need to spend.

I think body-coloured was standard - my black XK8 has black handles. Are you sure the chrome isn't a cover that is just stuck over the original door handles?

No!!! I can't believe that there is a need for it in Scotland like there is in Florida, and also the law in the UK doesn't allow much tint on front side windows anyway. Altogether too drug-dealer.

Look nice, but I'd add a support immediately under where the rear wheels sit so that the weight goes straight down to the floor.

I'd put money on a dead battery. Almost all strange/unexpected behaviour on these cars is due to low battery voltage.

Isn't that just the amp for the stereo? Does it always make the noise, even when the amp hasn't been in use and is hot?
