    W211 auto gear box

    I bought a 2006 E class (W211) a month or so ago. All was fine at first, but I'm now beginning to feel like I've bought a lemon. It's had a full service and nothing major was discovered so I thought all was well. However, in the last week or so two issues have cropped up that concern me. The...

    Aftermarket HU considerations

    How are you getting on with this? I'm thinking about upgrading the unit in my e320 w211. I need to get a bluetooth adaptor to use the phone functionality and that will cost about 100 quid by itself. If I went for a full upgrade I would get better nav, dab, and bluetooth functionality. Are they...

    E320 2006 (pre facelift) parking sensors

    The existing sensors seem to be malfunctioning. How can I disable them until I get a chance to get them looked at? There aren't any switches or buttons or anything obvious like that? Would it be fairly straightforward to disconnect it?

    Powered wing mirror

    I don't have a menu option to disable the folding feature. I did discover something weird though. I had the mirror parking adjust feature switched on and the n/s mirror wasn't folding at all. I turned that off and it went back to folding about 50%

    Aftermarket comand upgrade

    Looking around on eBay there seem to be loads of Android based SatNav/DAB/Bluetooth etc units to replace the factory fitted Comand system. Does anyone have any experience of these? Any recommendations?

    E320 2006 (pre facelift) parking sensors

    The data sheet confirms that there is no parktronic. I've had a look at the link to have it retrofitted. It's not cheap! However, the website only seems to have an option for the whole kit i.e. sensors too. I wonder if there was a way to use the existing sensors but add the feedback lights?

    Bluetooth Telephone

    Ok, so I do have that connector - hidden underneath a little plastic cover. So I need to find a bluetooth adaptor? Is that the same as a puck?! I did wonder why there were two coiled cables running down into the storage compartment underneath.

    E320 2006 (pre facelift) parking sensors

    Sounds like it is aftermarket then. I can't find a data card in the service book. What should it look like (presumably a piece of card!)? Assuming they are aftermarket, is there anyway of troubleshooting them or repairing them if they fail? I don't have any invoices or anything that suggests...

    Powered wing mirror

    The wing mirror on the passenger side of my 06 E320 doesn't fold in fully. I would estimate it manages about 50% of the full movement. How am I best to troubleshoot this? I don't think it's electrical because surely there would be no movement at all if it was. I was wondering if there was...

    E320 2006 (pre facelift) parking sensors

    My car is fitted with parking sensors, but it doesn't seem to have parktronic as described in the user manual. The manual talks about lights just above the dash and in the roof lining at the rear. My car does not have these. I can't find anything in the manual about any other parking assistance...

    Bluetooth Telephone

    I've just purchased a 2006 (pre facelift) E320 cdi estate. I was told by the dealer that it had bluetooth phone capability. I have been able to connect my phone via bluetooth (although connection is not stable), but when I press the TEL button it is still telling me to insert a telephone. Could...

    E320 2006 (pre facelift) bonnet badge

    I've just purchased a 2006 (pre facelift) E320 Cdi estate. It's my first Merc and I'm loving it so far. However, my wife isn't too keen on the emblem on the front of the bonnet. Is it possible to replace that with the flat badge version? If so, where's the best place to look and are they all of...
