    HELP: 2014 E63S Brake Caliper Lacquer Peel

    Had the same on my E63S on one of the front calipers. A large section of lacquer had flaked off leaving the exposed part a sort of dull pink. I took the car to a MB dealer who told me it would be over £1000 to replace as it was cosmetic and the warranty doesn't cover wear and tear. I did a...

    2014 W212 Mercedes E63S AMG, Hyacinth Red, 20500 miles

    I'm looking to sell my 2014 W212 E63S AMG. Just putting the feelers out here before I advertise elsewhere. It's Hyacinth red with a grey interior and has done 20500 mainly motorway miles. The car's just been serviced and has 11 months MOT remaining. I had the car re-mapped by Acid at MSL...

    Is there a re-sale price premium for the E63S over the E63?

    Before I place my car in the classifieds section I thought I'd ask the question. I might be selling my 2014 E63S and wondered what you chaps reckon is a reasonable asking price. It's May '14, Hyacinth red with 19000 miles. Cheers.

    New w213 E63s

    It's disappeared from the configurator. Was definitely there last week. Just had a look at prices on and depending on spec you can get 6-7k off at the moment.

    How much do you reckon I'd get for my E63 S?

    I've got a 2014 E63 S in hyacinth red which has done just under 17000 miles. It's a great car obviously but it just sits on my drive most days as I only use it for the commute to work which given the nature of my job is only three or four times a month at this time of year (good job I'm...

    E63 grille cover removal advice.

    I've got a couple of large stone chips on the component called the 'grille cover' on the grille of my car (part 9 on the attached pic) and I want to replace it with a new one. Does anyone know if this can be removed without taking off the front bumper? I've seen a video on YouTube where the...

    E63S brake caliper paint recommendation.

    I recently bought a two year old E63S. I didn't notice when I bought it that a significant area of the red paint on one of the brake calipers has flaked off (see attached pic). I've taken the car to my local dealer (not the one I bought the car from) and they've told me Mercedes don't supply...

    Dealer refusing to update COMAND map.

    Bought a two year old E63s last week. Prior to collection I asked the dealer to update the map and software on the car. Predictably they didn't. The car is in my local dealer (MB of Bolton) tomorrow for a LSD oil change paid for by the dealer I bought the car off. I asked MB Bolton for the...

    C63 - E63 advise please

    Just bought a 2014 E63s after having a 2014 C63 for eighteen months. Both great cars but I much prefer the E63. I'd find the C63 could seem a little harsh and noisy if I wasn't in the mood. The E63 is a lot more relaxed; a more grown up car. It's also nicer inside which makes the drive home...

    E63 COMAND update and ECU re-map question.

    I picked up my new car earlier this week and had it re-mapped by MSL (see the E63S AMG Remap & Dyno video posted by Acid yesterday :) ) Typically the dealer didn't update the map or DAB software as requested so it's going in next week to have that done. My question is will updating the...
