    My new E220

    The problem is the erratic Active Lane Assist problem only happens maybe once or twice a week and not always in the same places. Enough to wind me up and frighten the life out of me but probably not going to happen on a short test drive. My dash cam has caught the deviation but it's not obvious...

    Parking Pilot

    I have the "Park Pilot" that does everything (steering, accelerating, braking and gear change). All I do is choose the space and the car does the rest. In theory I could even get out and use my mobile phone to complete the parking once I have chosen the space and which direction I want it to...

    My new E220

    Thanks for the feedback. The dealer has "checked it over and not found any problems" with it but I think I will push a bit harder. They did that while trying to retro fit the rear USB sockets that had been missed off the build (still not done) and I get the feeling the check was a very quick...

    Parking Pilot

    I have used mine for bay parking a few times for a bit of fun and it works flawlessly. Normally I just drive straight into bays going forward but the park pilot has to go past the bay and then reverse back at an angle and drives in forwards (assuming I have selected to go in forwards). So as...

    My new E220

    So after a few months some of the magic has worn off! The active lane keeping assist is more like a suicide device as the car seems to have no idea where the lane is and often drags me on to the grass verge / into the hedge or off to the opposing lane even though I was central in my lane. So...

    Multifunction Telephony retrofit

    Thanks Richard. Sounds like it is a bit too much for me to tackle on a brand new car. I was hoping it might just be a new module or two that could be plugged in :-)

    Multifunction Telephony retrofit

    Hi Richard, I don't know the VIN yet as not getting the car until the 29th. If the looms are there is it just a new module? Does it replace the wireless charging parts or is it an additional unit? Any information on what it requires based on your upgrade would be very much appreciated.

    Multifunction Telephony retrofit

    Hi, I have a new E class estate on order with the wireless charging option. I will have the external telephone aerial as part of the Remote Parking package but I now see that for the phone to connect to the external aerial I should have ordered the multifunction telephony option and not the...

    My new E220

    After a break from Mercedes with 2 BMW 5 series I am coming home. New E 220d Estate on order and will hopefully be delivered around the end of July. I ticked all the options except the Air Balance Package so should keep me entertained for a while playing with all the toys :-) Now searching the...

    Flooded the car

    I had a phone call yesterday from a gentleman that had just bought my old car off e-bay. So today I dropped off the remaining bits that were not in the car when the insurance company took it away, e.g spare key. He seems confident that he can get it going again so I wish him good luck.

    Flooded the car

    Thanks. In my mind I know your right but despite it's faults it was one of the best cars I have had so it was hard to accept it's demise.

    Flooded the car

    I have stuck with auto and estate (sorry tourer). Also gone for the beige interior to keep it light inside. Lots of other toys as well so it has most of the things I had on the E plus some more. I know what you mean about the sound and in theory the mpg shouldn't be too much lower so with the...

    Flooded the car

    I finally got an answer from the insurance company a couple of weeks ago and it was written off. The estimate to repair was £9500. They mentioned it would need a new wiring loom as the connectors had started to corrode. We got a pretty good deal from the insurance company so can't complain...

    intermittent parktronic problem

    Mine played up like that intermittently for 2 years before it failed completely. It always worked when the dealer had the car so they couldn't find the fault. Once it did fail completely, about nine months ago, they located the fault and replaced one rear sensor and since then it has been OK.

    Flooded the car

    I had a call from the dealer to update me on the situation. The engine is running and "sounds OK" :bannana: but they have to get access to some more control modules so the insurance assessor can do another inspection. I don't know what they had to do to get the engine to run. I don't think it...

    Anyone seen any good number plates on cars lately?

    I often see FAX 1T on a 4x4 around Horsham way.

    Flooded the car

    That makes me feel a bit better knowing that my absentmindedness didn't compound my stupidity :) the only info I could find before was for the GL which states three inches and I thought if the E was the same then it might have just been enough.

    Flooded the car

    Just got back from holiday and still can't find out what is happening from the insurance company. I retrieved all my personal belongings from the car the day after it arrived at the MB dealer (except the CDs and DVD that are in the drives as there is no power) and while I was there I measured...

    I like your logic, I will keep that in mind :D
