    Hey Brollyman, did your dealer get that problem sorted out? I have the same problem: my COMAND unit reboots every 3 minutes, but only whenever route guidance is active. I managed to capture the problem on video: The problem started after the dealership flashed the COMAND unit following a...

    I have this problem too and somehow it got worse after my MB dealer updated the COMAND firmware. In my experience, it gets worse if I am streaming Bluetooth media at the same time as having the navigation guidance on. It certainly only ever reboots while navigation is active. On one 90 minute...

    C350e colour poll

    Yes, it replaced Tenorite Grey metallic on the 2017 model. I originally had Tenorite in my order (May 2016) but before the order went in to Stuttgart the dealer informed me that it was replaced by Selenite. Having seen the two side-by-side, I much prefer Selenite. Tenorite felt darker and had a...

    C350e anyone considering one?

    It's been a while since I had a BMW (had a 740iA until 2005) but having come from two Audis (A8 and S5), I love the C350e's steering. Agreed it's a big "powery" at lower speeds but I think it firms up nicely and - if you have the active steering DISTRONIC turned on - it feels grippy and firm...

    Hmmm....hope I won't have to replace the whole system. Mine was just dead dead - nothing on COMAND worked but all the functions in the multi-function display in the instrument cluster worked. Started by itself after 40 minutes or so...

    Hey! Just before Christmas, thought I'd share a couple of rim-focused pics. The first is with the factory-fitted, environmental tax-mandated 17" rims (the dealer couldn't fit any other rims and still have the car qualified for lower BIK-status here in Sweden). The second is with the...

    Had a weird problem with my 4 month old C350e the other day: the COMAND screen was entirely dead. It had worked the day before (and every other day) but it was dead for a 30 minute drive, not particularly cold (+6C) and with a fully charged battery. I tried pushing (and holding down the power...

    Thanks Ourg for a very interesting update. My reflections are perfectly aligned with yours: * I find the e-range irrational as well: forget the 32km range in the broschure, even fully charged it says 24km which becomes 16km after around 2km at 30km/h and then drops precariously on the motorway...

    Question about the pre-heat: is it always 15 minutes or is it smart and adjusts the time to the outside temperature? I e if I set the start time to 07:45, does it start heating at 07:30 or earlier if it's really cold out?

    Missed this post on my iPhone - sorry! I have a 14km commute from Danderyd to Sthlm City but I usually drop off my daughter at school, making it a 17km commute on E18 and then queuing in the City. I can *almost* make it on electric, but then the motorway (where I can hit 60-80km/h) and the...

    Thanks - interesting that there've been so few C350e's. I like it though... more exclusive! :D

    Interesting stuff Ourg. Where do you get these stats? Are they available at SCB or do you work within the industry (or insurance)? Totally agree on the 1.4L ICE in the Passat. Have a 2.0L 4-motion loaner right now until our new Tiguan arrives and - even so - it feels much less quick than our...

    Thanks guys. Brilliant blue is a beautiful colour and if I had a garage or knew I'd be washing the car more often, I probably would've gotten that. This grey was primarily chosen for its ability to hide dirt. Good to hear about the water ingress issue not being that common. I don't have a flap...

    Another new C350e owner (in Sweden)

    Just wanted to say hello to my fellow Mercedes drivers and fellow hybrid owners! After one BMW (M-reg 730iA) and two Audis (2006 A8 and 2011 S5 convertible), I recently took delivery of a Selenite grey C350e with beige interior and black piano finish as a company car (Leaseplan). We don't...
