    Changing from 17's to 19's on a W205 C220

    Well, my wheels arrived but they were damaged by the courier in transit. They've gone back for a refund and the search continues. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Changing from 17's to 19's on a W205 C220

    I had a look, but I couldn't see a figure for the width of alloys I'm getting. Done a bit of research and they should fit, but you never know! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    W205 centre console colour change

    It's dead easy. The hardest part is working out how to get the silver trim at the base out. Once that's done, unscrew the 2 screws you can see and then just tug it back and lift it out. Once it's out then everything is just screwed or clipped in to the back of it. To get the silver bit out...

    I've got bored of the 18's and have now found stunning set of 19's. Fingers crossed they'll fit! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    W205 centre console colour change

    The console is in! The only real problem was putting the wrapped covers back on the air vents. After 20 minutes of faffing about I decided they wouldn't go on, so as a result I've kept the piano black on the vents. This will then match the screen, side vents and control units. Here's some...

    W205 centre console colour change

    The chrome surrounds are part of the heater control unit, the touch pad and the ash tray unit. The chrome insert is only plastiwelded in, so I put a screw driver on the back of the weld and turned it a few times. This breaks the weld on the back and the trim piece can be prised very carefully...

    I haven't removed mine yet. This was a spare centre console that I acquired. I'll post up some removal instructions when I've changed them over. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    W205 centre console colour change

    A couple of hours later and it's all done. Looks OK, but I'm not 100% sure on it. Think I'll probably be getting it dipped in some weird design at some point. The wife has found a nice and not so subtle blue flaming skull design that she quite likes!! But I'll get it in the car before making...

    I may just go for the carbon wrap for now. Funds are getting tighter and tighter because I can't stop buying wheels!! Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    W205 centre console colour change

    So, I'm finally sick and tired of looking at my scratched C Class piano black centre console. It's been changed once under warranty due to peeling and fading issues, and now it's fading again. I'm sure they've made this out of the softest plastic known to man as it scratches as soon as a fly...

    Rang them earlier to inform them. It's not worth taking chances nowadays. My last 2 cars were heavily modified and they knew about every change.

    Changing from 17's to 19's on a W205 C220

    Finally found a set. Should be picking them up on Saturday. Decided to go for 18's instead of 19's just to make sure there's not huge change in the ride quality.

    Changing from 17's to 19's on a W205 C220

    Trying to find the ET of my current ones so I can make sure that the others will fit. The new ones are staggered as well so I'll have to take that into account. Then I have to look at how ridiculously expensive the tyres are going to be. [emoji15]
