    Replacement headlamps W208 CLK55 AMG

    No, unfortunately as I am based in Dubai the breakers are not an option. Thanks for the ebay heads up. Will hold off on the lamps for now... Don't want to be disappointed.

    Michelin Pilots - W208 CLK55 AMG

    Cheers guys... Got to the root of the problem and it wasn't the tyres after all. The left control arm bushings and steering damper were weak causing vibration at certain speeds. At least that was what the garage said. Parts on order so will know soon enough.

    CLK55 AMG power lag

    need to find a nice stretch of open road at the weekend and give the theories a go... The choked up run to and from work hasn't given me the chance this week. Thanks for the tips.

    Fuel gauge playing up - W208 CLK55 AMG

    That would explain it... Got some fuel cleaner in there at the moment. If that doesn't shift the problem, may just leave it as I can avoid the problem by not overfilling the tank (up to the cut off point at the pump). Very strange phenomenon.

    Michelin Pilots - W208 CLK55 AMG

    Yes, will try that too... Worth exhausting all possibilities before forking out on a new set of rubber! Car is going in for a replacement washer motor anyway so will get them to look into the problem (another excuse to charge me another 100 quid or so!)

    CLK55 AMG power lag

    Just leave mine permanently in sport mode... I think the overall result is that there is a lag and we all have different approaches to work with it!! Thanks for the tips ;-) Sometimes I do miss a manual gearbox... Just a shame that 80% of the time we sit in traffic!!!

    Problems after running low on fuel - W208 CLK55 AMG

    Good point ;-) Was on a 40 mile stretch of open road with no speed cameras (there still are a couple in Dubai)... My eyes were glued to the road and not the fuel gauge!

    Fuel gauge playing up - W208 CLK55 AMG

    Thanks Scorcher. Will check that out after I've tried some fuel cleaner if it doesn't fix it. Great wheels BTW - did you adapt those from standard? I have a snow white car and was thinking about getting the wheels done in black.

    Michelin Pilots - W208 CLK55 AMG

    It was standing for a long time before I bought it and the vibrations at speed are definitely from the wheels... Had the car serviced recently and they found nothing else apart from changing the discs and pads (and the vibration was there from before). May take it back to be looked at again...

    Problems after running low on fuel - W208 CLK55 AMG

    That makes sense... Thanks for that. Was thinking that some debris from the bottom of the tank could have accounted for the running problems that lasted a short time afterwards. Hopefully no real harm done.

    Where does the SIM go in CLK 2002?

    Well, if anyone could help double checking this it would be much appreciated. It is Eid holidays here at the moment so the dealers are all closed until next week. The VIN is WDB2083741F174516. Thanks again for all the assistance in these posts. This is an excellent forum with some really...

    VIN and age of the car - CLK55 AMG

    Checked my VIN online and it says the delivery date of the car is 10/00. Could this be when the model was introduced as my registration says 2002?! This was what I bought it as... Based in Dubai and it is an import from Japan so it is possible that it is a 2000 model but must have ben one of the...

    Michelin Pilots - W208 CLK55 AMG

    Feel it at all speeds but more pronounced around 60kmph... A mechanic I know recommended to run them at 50psi for a while, but didn't think that would be a good idea!

    Where does the SIM go in CLK 2002?

    Thanks... Okay, I checked the VIN (thanks for the heads up that the VIN is the chassis number - confirmed my lack of knowledge!) Unclear about the phone option as almost everything is listed as options. But think you are right about the handset - will follow up with the dealer. Something...

    Replacement headlamps W208 CLK55 AMG

    The only thing I dislike about this car are the hazy headlamps... Make it look dated and ugly from the front-end. Can anyone recommend good quality replacement projector style lamps? Seen a few on ebay, but don't want something cheap and nasty to arrive - and they obviously need to perform as...
