    S212 tyres advice

    Thanks for the reply – that’s helpful. One concern I had was that an extra 20mm in contact with the road on each wheel could make a noticeable difference in cornering – or 20mm negligible in this case?

    S212 tyres advice

    When I got my late 2015 E220 BLUETEC SE estate (S212) it had 225/50 R17 Goodyear tyres. 225/50 R17 appears as a possible tyre size on the inside of my filler cap where pressures are listed. I recently replaced all 4 tyres with exact replacements – Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 225/50 R17...

    Upgrade of sound system on 2015 S212

    I got my COMAND firmware updated and, without a doubt, the sound has improved with slightly better bass and a little less harshness at the top end – to the extent that I had to change my tone settings to more neutral settings. It's still not what it could be, but I can live with it now.

    Installation of reversing camera and CarPlay/Android Auto on S212 (2015)

    As an update to this old thread, I got CarPlay/AA enabled at my local MB dealership a couple of weeks ago (after an unsuccessful attempt a few months back). I just needed to speak to the right person who knew it was possible and what it required. I think it adds a lot of value to the car and it...

    S212 engine query

    Thanks for the replies so far. I'll have the mounts checked when it's in for a service in a couple of months but I don't recall getting vibration through the transmission tunnel (and I tend to rest my leg against it so I'm sure I'd have noticed). Yes it has start/stop (that only just started...

    S212 engine query

    I acquired a 2015 S212 E220 Bluetec (OM651) last summer – my first Merc, first diesel and first automatic car. It has 85K on the clock but a FMBSH (and was last serviced 2-3 months before I bought it). The car runs well, but I couldn't help thinking that my engine didn't idle as smoothly or...

    Installation of reversing camera and CarPlay/Android Auto on S212 (2015)

    An interesting perspective – and one I think I could relate to. I wonder if I might be guilty of trying to up-spec my new (to me) car for the sake of it… As for CarPlay/AndroidAuto – I know I’d get a lot of use from that.

    Installation of reversing camera and CarPlay/Android Auto on S212 (2015)

    Thanks for the replies so far – very helpful. To clarify re the reversing camera: I’m just looking for a standard reversing camera that comes up on the screen when I select reverse gear, hence the idea of getting a pulled one from eBay.I realise it may need recoding/engineering mode on my...

    Upgrade of sound system on 2015 S212

    I've recently bought my first Merc (after four Mondeos) – a late 2015 S212 E220 Bluetec that I really like. However, I'm seriously underwhelmed by the sound quality from the stock audio system. In short, it's really harsh and tinny! I listen to proper hi-fi at home and even the stock system in...

    Installation of reversing camera and CarPlay/Android Auto on S212 (2015)

    I've spoken to comandonline.co.uk who tell me that my late 2015 S212 *can* be upgraded to CarPlay/Android as it appears to have Comand 5*1 (or is it 5.1?), albeit controlled via the wheel rather than touch screen. That would certainly explain why the usual key combination won't bring up...
