    I will never believe anything I see on Fast and Furious EVER again! All jokes aside, I appreciate knowing it is limited.

    W208 electric seat issue

    Back again. Passenger electric seat won't go forwards or backwards. I can hear a solenoid or relay click under the seat but no movement. All advice appreciated before I start ripping into it!

    CLK430 rev limited when in park and neutral?

    Thanks. Panicked a little. I need to buy an OBD2 reader too as I've the MIL light on. Any suggestions of a good cheap one on eBay. ? Cheap as in I've gotta spend loads on getting the body more ferrous than oxide. Love the car. Gonna be a great project.

    CLK430 rev limited when in park and neutral?

    Hi Guys and Gals My CLK430 project - I've only driven it for 10 miles and it is now SORN I've had it running on the driveway for oil change etc. Have noticed it seems limited at 4K when revving it (fully hot of course). I didn't gun it on the drive home from collecting it. This normal?

    Getting the best out of a W208 CLK430

    I'm kinda after the "V8 coming through" exhaust note. Without scaring small children. Or getting arrested. The car will only be used for occasional driving pleasure, I'm not fussed about hearing Bieber on radio 1! Looked at variable exhaust valves, my 3.2 Audi had one. That coked up though I've...

    Hmm the TC light came on for a second and went off. Something else I think, given the time. It was like pure limp mode. Will look into the i980, thanks for the recommendation! I might change the maf - planning a mega service to bring the car back in shape!
