Plus the personal labout (especially on an MB) since so few mechanics
understand them.

Little bit of fun yesterday evening - Charles Adair took his car for a
test drive on the A5 with Roger and myself, also in MBs, acting as
chase and benchmark.  After we'd worked the cars for a bit, we drove to
the Cavalier in Lutterworth.  Apparently the entire bar heard three I5s
'idling down' to cool the turbos before we went in.
