    CLS Brakes

    Picked up a 2013 plate CLS 250 CDI AMG last week. The brakes are IMO awful, feel very soft to me, i have to really stomp on the brake pedal to see any kind of urgent braking.

    B class service - car says B, ESS says A

    My 11 month old, 7800 miles, B180 petrol is telling me a B service is due in 30 days, but the ESS report from the MB site says an A service is due... bit confused why would the car think it needs a major service after a little under 8K miles. Anyone else seen this kind of thing?

    C63 finance offer from MB, very tempting

    even the stock model is a pretty good spec IMO - leather, adaptive xenon, sunroof, mp3, cruse control etc. only thing i'd consider adding would be parking sensors.

    Just bought my 2nd merc - i really have this time!

    I had the same problem in the B class, found that i needed to sit upright more and slouch less to get comforatble.. basicly sit correctly and it was very confotrable and supportive. was just a hard habit to break from slouching a lot in my previous car.
