    W212 Bluetooth issue / dropping out

    2nd time back at the dealers to investigate the Bluetooth dropping out. They said that after investigation there was a software update for the command unit, which they have installed. Why they didn't do that 1st time, I dunno.. Fingers crossed. Have used several basic nokia handsets in the car...

    Trolley jack points for w212 coupe

    Bought my first trolley jack. Would like to jack up the front, then the back in order to take off and clean up the wheels. Two at a time if I'm able to. Are there front and rear central jack points clearly noticeable if I look under ? Apologies for sounding so divvey.

    Winter tyres for e250cdi coupe

    Last winter caught me out. Wife and i both have rear wheel drive auto sledges and we live on a steep hill. Contemplated buying a cheap 4x4, but having one "spare" just in case it snows seems a bit wasteful.. Just wondered if I need to buy new rims and snow tyres and keep them in the gge...

    BUT she would have the nicer car then ! :-) I had already half decided on the 250 with 7 speed box, just wondered if anybody had a 200 and could sing it's praises. Appreciate the feedback.

    Fuel consumption

    I do the same journey into work most days. I'm a bit OCD with the computer/mpg these days, it's always on the screen. I get between 44 and 56 mpg from home to work (8 miles). VERY much depending upon whether I think about my driving style (and manually change up downhill etc etc) or whether Im...

    Olympic Tickets - what did you get?

    Pentathlon. Applied for loads. Just got 4 tickets for this. I have 2 young kids and thought they might enjoy being part of it. I'm not fussed personally.

    E 200cdi blue efficiency

    Evening, Just wondered if any body has a newish e class 200cdi? My wife's car is approaching 3yrs old and she has an e220cdi. Not been a bad car, but she's only averaged 33mpg since she's had it. On a motorway at 65mph, it only does low 40's. The 200 looks a tad slower on the 0-60 etc...

    Mercedes planning X6 beater...

    I erred into an X6 for 6 months. I liked the drive position. Hated the letterbox rear window/view. Went round roundabouts well. Upon reflection and reading the above, I can't work out why I bought one :-) Will be interesting to see how MB will create a rival.

    Bluetooth phone keeps turning itself off/on

    Could not update firmware via t-mobile from the phone. It thought it was on latest firmware revision. Downloaded nokia ovi and manually installed latest one. Not missed a beat since. MANY thanks !

    Vintage diesel Auto MB

    Really appreciate your comments. Didn't realise that the zero tax started in 73 - learned something new. What a cracking looking vintage MB! Wife has a new MB for longer journeys etc. I was just thinking that rather than chase the latest/best, perhaps I should look retro. I gave up driving...

    Bluetooth phone keeps turning itself off/on

    Newbie question. Got a year old E 250cdi coupe BE (usual injector drama's) but OBE thing drives me nuts. Have a pretty standard Nokia phone (6700) set up for Bluetooth in the car. Most of the time it works fine. However, randomly the Bluetooth just disconnects mid conversation and after a...

    Vintage diesel Auto MB

    New to the forum, so please excuse my ignorance. Contemplating buying a pre '71 MB as my next vehicle. I feel like I'm a bit caught up in a must have / need latest model cycle, having switched my cars 9 times in the last 5 yrs. Ive had Bose sound systems added and then hardly listened to...
