    HOW TO INSTALL/HARDWIRE 12V SOCKET DASH CAM W212

    TBH I have no idea, but the fact it has happened to both the ML & CLS, I am going to go with the cameras. Mine are both hardwired in, I believe to the overhead control panel. I have tried fitting a ferrous core around the cable going to the dash cam, but it there is not enough exposed cable to...

    HOW TO INSTALL/HARDWIRE 12V SOCKET DASH CAM W212

    When I had mine installed professionally, both front and rear cams, the installer told me it may affect my DAB. Needless to say, he was right. Have BV dash cams fitted to the cars and both DAB radios are now useless!!

    W202 C43 AMG

    Congrats thus far. I do agree with you on the wood trim, will be easy enough to source the 'carbon fibre' trim that adorns most f the 43s of this era. Just noticed you are only up the road from me so hopefully may get to see it at some point at a meet. Mine is a 99 one too, albeit in black.

    Cls 350 cdi blueefficiency rear bumper conversion

    Front bumper wont work @regbuser due to the DRLs being housed in the headlight on the FL, whereas they are housed in the front bumper on the pre FL. Unless you are going to change the headlight assemblies and potentially coding as well, which is mega £££! Rear is a direct swap, except there are...

    Using a leaf blower to dry your car .

    TBH Rog, it was specifically bought for my crotch rocket, but occasionally I use it on the car within the engine bay, otherwise it is rinsed with a DI vessel and left alone.

    Cls 350 cdi blueefficiency rear bumper conversion

    There are plenty of bumpers in various states (from damaged to immaculate) on the bay of dreams as Flash quite rightly points out. I think I may just have everything you would need for the conversion and no need for a paint job to boot, as it is black and in excellent condition! As you are a...

    Cls 350 cdi blueefficiency rear bumper conversion

    Thank you for clarifying. Not sure if the diffuser would be compatible with your bumper but am inclined to think it wouldn't be. If you did want to go ahead, you would need (as Flash has pointed out) a rear bumper, diffuser, exhaust tips, and associated brackets from a CLS with the AMG sports...
