    Rear camber adjustment - W211 2004 estate with air suspension

    Local alignment place did my car but said only MB can adjust the rear toe due to some bracket being used on air suspension rather than normal arms etc.. Requires a specialist tool. True or false? It's only the rear right (UK drivers side) that's out of tolerance. Reading is +0.18 degrees it's...

    W211 option 616 ACTIVE CURVELIGHT Option

    Yup same on both sides. That's good news. I guess mine are turned off as they don't seem to move horizontally no matter how hard I look. I do have vertical as I see the beam move when I start the car.

    Which Fibre Optic (Most) to RCA Adapter to use

    I think you'll be disappointed vs the quality you have now. If you have aux in maybe get a Bluetooth 3.5mm receive and run phone on aux input. You can get some with handsfree built in also. Then you get the best of both for under £40 as your phone will always be vastly better than any headunit...
