Got to say that the old Merc is doing great.  Despite being stuck in traffic at Alton Towers for two hours the other day it hasn't boiled up or missed a beat.  As usual the Jeep is broken though but nothing to do with the heat Mad

Gotta say my old Benz never really complains whatever the weather Bow 

Though yesterday I noticed the steering was super super light though I guess in this weather fluids are at boiling temp even without starting the motor Rolling Eyes 

Also have a power window fault on the drivers window Headbang 

Great timing huh??

Apart from the fact id kill for Air Con in it right now i really cannot complain its as good as Gold Thumb 

Seriously though I wish this weather would go away as its beyond any sort of enjoyment now and I am praying for torrential rain :Pr:

Only thing that's been over heating on the Volvo are the seats. Black leather gets stupidly hot in the sun.

Plastics have gone a bit brittle, window rubbers leak a bit, and most of the paint has come off the roof.

If I don't cover the window/put a cover over the steering wheel, I have to use a wet cloth on it for a few minutes before I can touch it with bare hands.

But, even in these changed climate days, I suspect you may have a different reference frame for "heat" back in the Yook.
