    W205 SatNav pronunciation problems

    Just got back from one of my regular trips down to Malaga in my new W205 with Comand Sat Nav. The pronunciation (in English) of Spanish & French towns is appalling. My previous car was a C350 with Comand and over 7 years I had no problems with the SatNav. As an example Malaga is pronounced...

    Sound deadening internally a C350 CDI BE

    Hello all, I am taking delivery of a W204 C350CDi Blue Efficiency which replaces my W203 2004 180K C Class. I am over the moon with my choice but one small point to cover is that the 180K seems quieter from the inside when driving in town than the V6 of the C350. Are there any retro fit...
