THE STORY SO FAR Miles driven 26 To­tal mileage 82,171 What’s gone wrong Dirt on the wheel sen­sors caus­ing havoc

Suc­cess! The big­gest – and po­ten­tially most fi­nan­cially fright­en­ing – of our £500 Chal­lenge cars is through its MoT, fol­low­ing more re­me­dial work. The gu­rus at Sh­effield-based Mercedes spe­cial­ist The Only Way Is W123 dis­cov­ered that dirty wheel sen­sors were the cul­prit of our in­ter­mit­tent warn­ing lights, and welded up a sec­tion of ex­haust that would’ve caused the car to fail. It’s good to have our S280 fight­ing fit again. DS
