    Time for MB A service! Oil

    I agree. A waste of what, £50/60 and an hour of enjoyment? Come on. This has been discussed to death and some people prefer to stick to the manufacturer’s schedule whilst others like to service every 6m / 5k miles. It depends on the type of driving and the conditions as to whether it is...

    Time for MB A service! Oil

    Hi guys, I have owned the car 11 months, it had a B service 11 months ago. I’m very obsessive with maintenance, changing the oil every 4-5k, so after 4-5k (approx 6 months) I carried out an interim oil and filter change - my plan is to let MB service the car annually and for me to carry out an...

    W213 pan roof service guidance

    On the back of another thread, I bought the MB Krytox liquid and special grease for servicing my pan roof. I’ve found the servicing guide for the pan roof on two other models (one uses both Krytox and the grease and the other calls for just the grease), but mine (213) is different to both! I...

    W213 Remove hairline scratches to gloss black trim

    Yes I’ve heard that aswell. It’s more abrasive than SRP.

    W213 Remove hairline scratches to gloss black trim

    I have the same piano black trim and they do collect hairline scratches and swirls extremely easily. The best way to guarantee removal of most marks is to machine polish but very messy trying to do that inside the car, so probably removal of the trim would be required. Some say that hand...

    Panoramic Roof Maintenance

    I understand. My assumption was indeed incorrect o_O The Mrs acquired a Toyota that belonged to my mum and dad who had owned it since new, having it serviced by Toyota annually. It is now 12 years old and has never had a brake fluid change. This is one of those ‘additional’ items but unlike...

    Panoramic Roof Maintenance

    This is extremely useful information. I was looking to protect the rubber seals that surround the pan roof but wasn’t sure what maintenance was required on the mechanism itself. I have now ordered both solutions and shall be doing this. I assume from @Spider10 post above that MB don’t carry...

    Very nice E500 s211. High spec, rare colour

    Very interesting! It is obviously just me, but I think the colour is dreadful! And those wheels don’t suit the character.

    RL350 cdi engine noise

    That is loud! Any smoke, smells in cabin? Tried taking the serpentine belt off and seeing whether it still makes the noise so as to eliminate alternator and accessories?

    Funny noise on acceleration

    If steering column related, you might notice a change in the noise when moving the steering wheel which may assist in diagnosing?

    GLE 3l d engine seizure

    The problem with that is when should it have been said? At the beginning of what? I say this because I believe you are relying on the 3 year manufacturer warranty but bought from a non franchised dealer used, therefore it might have been explained to the original purchaser from new, but I...

    W213 E class replacement rear pads

    Mine cost £58.99 for OEM pads for the W213. I agree you need to find a good indie, as £280 is extortionate.
