    New (to me) E350

    Definitely going to investigate when I get back home as I am sure the driving I do should be 40 + mpg.

    New (to me) E350

    I think that dealing with the rear suspension is the first bit. Hopefully nothing too bad. Then a good service and potentially speaking with Merc UK about rear subframes. Then perhaps a remap but we shall see!

    New (to me) E350

    It was serviced about 7,000 miles ago but I will get it serviced again before too long as it never hurts. Certainly seems that others with the same car are getting better economy so it should be possible, maybe review again after the service.

    New (to me) E350

    That is really impressive economy for the performance on offer. There is, of course, a balance between driving slower for better economy and actually getting there! It is exactly 4 hrs door to door with no traffic so keen not to make it too much more.

    New (to me) E350

    If yours is a saloon, and mine an estate and heavier, then perhaps 40 vs 35-37 mpg is about right.

    New (to me) E350

    I probably should have added that the cruise control is set to 75 mph indicated throughout!

    New (to me) E350

    Thermostat is new and car gets to 90 deg on the gauge swiftly and remains there.

    New (to me) E350

    Not the best photo but all I have for now! 2012 E350 Cdi. Panoramic roof, memory seats and really clean in and out. Had an inspection done; slightly corroding brake lines and knackered mountings for height level sensors the only things. Rear suspension has obviously dropped now that I am...

    S212 rear air suspension

    My new car is doing this! Had a few Mercedes with air suspension so know this is reasonably common. I think it may be level sensors speaking with my Indy. My question is - I am abroad for 3 weeks so not at home to rectify. Will it be ok to leave like this (it won’t be driven) or is there...

    Random photos whilst I try to compress the others which are too large!

    E500 (388) Estate

    Do you think the price is too high? I think it is about there considering rareity and facelift with the 5.5 vs 5.0. 125k should be nothing if it has been looked after. 9 main dealer so you would hope (perhaps!) that it has been looked after well.

    M273 v8 - 2009 w211 e500

    I must say that I am really interested but, and I think you are right, the price needs to be more favourable and a full bill of health required. The obvious answer is but a Honda Civic if you don't want bills but that is simply not going to happen! I do fancy a Lexus LS460 which should, in...

    M273 v8 - 2009 w211 e500

    Thanks for the reply. How did you find your W211? I am looking for something to do a bit of M4 work with the occasional ferry of kids. I have an E39 530i at present which is great but will need a few bits doing to it soon.

    M273 v8 - 2009 w211 e500

    Hi Texasjohn, Were you selling an E500 at some stage on Pistonheads? It seemed like a lovely car but I missed out. I have spoken to the chap about the silver car on Autotrader and he seems nice and the car appears to have been well looked after. I also think it is overpriced, it has steadily...

    M273 v8 - 2009 w211 e500

    I think the balancer shaft issue on the M272 V6 is more prevalent than the idler gear on the M273 V8; it is certainly what the internet would have you believe. That said, you tend to only hear bad news on the internet. I absolutely get that any issue can happen to any car but with a known...

    M273 v8 - 2009 w211 e500

    Good afternoon, I am looking at a 2009 E500 with the 5.5l M273 in it. I know that some had idler gear issues but it seems to suggest that was only until 2008. It may be that 2009 was the last of the line and actually that is what they meant? Does anybody know if the issue was rectified...
