    Main Dealer or Independent

    I've a CLS and get this looked after by Colin and Stuart at Burlsedon Motors. Can highly recommend them. They are very friendly and approachable, do an excellent job and are terrific value for money. Wouldn't take my car anywhere else. As above PCS are also excellent but a bit further away at...

    Car polisher

    Another recommendation for DAS pro. Great machine just make sure you get the pro version. A great investment if you are serious about getting your car to look really good.

    GPS DVD Unit replacement and STAR

    Hi It looks like my gps dvd unit on my 2005 cls has failed - no power and disc won't eject. Have checked fuse and wiring so suspect it is dead. If I get a replacement unit will it need to be recode for my car using STAR? I know you have to do this for other electronic items and wondered...

    See you are based in Southampton. I live nearly Fareham and used Fareham mobile air con services - 0750 1162710. Got good reviews on yellow pages. The guy was brilliant - came to my house, checked the system over then regassed. Very friendly and efficiency. Good value for money as well. As...

    Power steering oil

    Second the dealer approach. Did some shopping around but dealer was just as cheap and you then know you are getting the right spec, just make sure you take your VIN.

    Karcher or Nilfisk

    I've got a compact nilfisk. To be honest can't fault it, does what it says on the tin. Look out for refurbished units - are a real bargain - either on eBay or own nilfisk site.

    CLS DS Vanity Mirror

    I did exactly the same - bought a pocket mirror on eBay and had it cut to size. Easy to fit back in and much easier/cheaper than replacing visor.

    CLS window regulator snapped cable repair DIY

    Had exactly the same issue when replacing mine. Spent ages trying to get the wire on the cog. Even though others have got it to work I had to admit defeat and order a full replacement from mb. Was none in the country at the time (bit surprised as it's a common issue - awful design) but got one...

    Tyre Opinions?

    Another vote for the Goodyear. Fitted these to the rear of my CLS500 about 3 mths ago. Very happy with them - quiet, good grip and as above good rim protection. Cheapest place I could find them was Tyreleader. Are some horror stories but my experience was very positive. Alternatively...
