    F/L W210 E55

    I agree. I've had 5 of them, although only one E55 AMG. Mine was a facelift. I pxed it for the cl55 but the dealer I sold it to left it to rot in a car park. I found out if was left there for at least 5 years :(

    Two opposites but attractive what is...

    I love my slk55 but the matt colour puts me off (just my preference). It gets complicated when paint repairs need to be done as well.

    Rattle/buzzing c63

    Lifters, cam lobe wear etc is evident at specific RPM regardless of load. Does it make this noise in park as well?

    Rattle/buzzing c63

    Do keep in mind, the general internet population are going to struggle with just videos. Noises are hard enough to diagnose when you have the car! Does it make the noise on full throttle?

    Rattle/buzzing c63

    It is clearer and still very subtle. I don't know if its much louder in person or possibly you are expecting the car to be too quiet? If its louder than the video in person, then do check the steering colum rubber gaiter at the bottom of the column to ensure its not perished or torn, this will...

    P0D1A (00) EV/Hybrid battery pack cooling control valve b open/short

    Because nobody has posted about it? Most of these are still in dealer network and under warranty, but this valve (coolant switchover valve) is used in loads of places in loads of MBs and they fail like clockwork at 100k miles. Pads and discs are consumables. Sounds like supplying dealer didn't...

    P0D1A (00) EV/Hybrid battery pack cooling control valve b open/short

    No but it's very common, and not too expensive to change.

    W205 Head Unit Issues

    NTG 5.5 comand on a facelift car. Not seen one fail yet, but I'm sure main dealer has, as most will have just come out of warranty.

    C class rear subframe corrosion W204 - 2024 update!

    I have had a few replaced FOC with £0 total costs. I have had an equal amount try and upset customers on things like brake lines etc "whilst they are there". Same with things like propshaft flexible couplings. Its a bit cheeky IMO, especially the bolt argument. If we broke a customers...

    W222 gear selection issues

    It's the lever, but on yours its in the steering column module instead of the center console. Same thing likely to be at fault, but a bit of diag worth doing to save chucking parts at it

    W205 Head Unit Issues

    I have seen pre facelift (ntg 5.1) fail in this way that requires a replacement unit to fix. If you post your vin, we can yell you, or you can pop it into an online vin decoder

    Rattle/buzzing c63

    It's very very hard to hear in the video, so I'm basing this more on your description of the noise. It does sound exhaust like. As your mounts had failed, have you checked for a cracked catalytic converter around the base of the weld at the top? It's hard to see and is common when mounts are poor.

    M113 rough idle no fault codes.

    Do a smoke test on the intake system, you will probably find loads of leaks around the maf sensor/housing.
