    Mercedes Dash Cam

    Again I think that is to comply with regulations (stop people messing with it whilst driving etc). I've used Nextbase cameras pretty much since dash cams came out because insurers used to recommend them although that is pretty much irrelevant now. I imagine there are a number of other dash cam...

    Mercedes Dash Cam

    It has to be manually activated every time you start the car. As above this is to comply with regulations in various countries

    Mercedes Dash Cam

    I agree, the functionality is very basic in comparison to third party offerings but I believe there are reasons behind this. For example, the manual start of the built in dash cam is intentional in order to comply with different regulations in different countries. If you took your car to Austria...

    Recall letter power steering.

    My parents got a letter for Mam's A180d but I haven't had one yet for my A35. Good to know the A35 is also impacted by this. Hopefully will get a letter shortly.

    Greatest Mercedes TV advert ?

    I remember the 'snow date' advert from a few years ago around Christmas time advertising 4Matic models. Having said that even though I have a 4Matic I wouldn't be driving the little g*t anywhere in those conditions.

    MISERABLE FOLK!

    Some people are just born miserable, I've had a few people comment on the A35 when I'm out and about which is quite a surprise and quite nice to be honest. On one occasion I was at the Petrol Station filling it up when a head appeared from in between the pumps shouting "nice car mate!", I nearly...

    Defensive Driving?

    We should be anticipating hazards at all times and we should not necessarily assume that other vehicles around us are under 'sane control' and will follow the rules. We should be prepared for the unexpected. For example, had the victim anticipated junction and slightly dropped off his speed on...

    Defensive Driving?

    As per the Roadcraft handbook, 'you must be able to stop in the distance you can see to be clear'.

    Defensive Driving?

    Clearly she is fault because she pulled out into oncoming traffic,the fact that she forgot what side of the road she was driving on is concerning to be frank. However, perhaps he could have anticipated the junction better and reduced speed to to deal with the potential hazard of a vehicle...

    A35 AMG - thinking of getting one

    Before I got my A35 I researched the head gasket/cylinder issues as I was also concerned despite the car being new. Whilst it is documented that the M264 engine is prone to such failures In the A35, the issue does appear to be rather random. Some people have experienced it, others have not and...

    Delete all Contacts

    The contacts are pulled from your phone when it connects so if you de-auth your phone it should also remove the contacts, I don't believe they are actually stored in COMAND. You can check this by going back into the phone menu and selecting phonebook after you have removed your phone. If you do...

    A35 AMG - thinking of getting one

    I've got a 2022 pre-facelift A35 and so far it hasn't missed a beat. Coming from owning a number of C Class saloons the ride is more harsh but it is an entry level performance car, personally I don't find it uncomfortable even when In sport+. I'd be looking for a premium plus spec car as it...

    Service Plan and personalised registration number query

    I believe it is the norm, when I purchased a pre-registered C Class a few year back they always referred to its original plate until I asked my dealer change the registration to my private plate.

    Mercedes Warranty Quote

    Both my Brother (also has a C300d) and my Dad currently have extended warranties on their Cars and have no complaints with it. The only thing I would advise is to look closely at what is covered and what isn't because it isn't a like for like replacement of the Manufacturer's Warranty and is...

    Mercedes Warranty Quote

    Yes, normally a letter is sent out to the registered keeper with a pin number and login on it. You need both of those to go through the quotation process. As it expires in January I'd expect a letter in December sometime, from experience I've usually received such letters a month before the...
