    E320 CDI Estate S210 TRAMSMISSION

    Hello thanks for responding..... It's revs high but takes ages to get speed built up..... You're right about the turbo- what you've said made me think- there's no sense of the turbo kicking in or a power boost - it's no kicking down and no turbo boost. If your on a flat and patient you can...

    2001 W210 Heated Seats

    thanks for your reply bob6600 I've done as you've suggested; fuse 12 and 18 is ok but fuse 17 was not installed. Funny, because i haven't been in the rear fuse area for months and am sure the heated seats have worked since then. To add another element to this - the passenger seat seat...

    hello - have a question The two front heated seats on my car have stopped working, however the switches that activate them still illuminate. Is there one fuse for both seats or could it be something else ? It'd be unlikely the connectors for both seats would become dislodged at the same...

    I would prefer the S211E320 cdi - the engine is made for that size of car - more torque and bhp and i would like having the money in my pocket having not purchased the newer car. use some of this money to buy a good warranty from warranty direct.
