    Whats more reliable? V6 or IL6 E320cdi

    Straight 6 (211/later w220) is the better of the two as is the 5 speed gearbox attached to it, sbc would let it down though in the 211. V6 (642) has a few common issues that are not cheap to fix and comes with the 7g tronic gearbox.

    deflating airmatic and bleeding brakes - which tool

    Just undo the rear unions on the suspension bags to let the air out, the car will automatically re-fill on start up. To bleed sbc you will need either a decent diagnostic machine that activates the sbc pump or a good quality brake pressure bleeder.

    What controls the turbo actuator?

    W211 SBC brake pads: I'm going in.

    Has your sport even got sbc? I'd imagine it has abr, this means stadard bleeding method will work and changing the brakes won't come with any warnings! Do check though! As for bleeding sbc with the pedal it will never work.
