    New COMAND Icon

    Never had it before and have used Mercedes Me since getting the car at the end of 2015. It is on all the time as well. I think it was agreeing to the find my car feature that activated it. But can’t be 100% as I agreed to two or three things I hadn’t previously used.

    New COMAND Icon

    Thanks I don’t think it is though (although I still have no idea to be fair). If I search for hotspots using my phone it doesn’t find any. And there are no settings or options on COMAND to activate/deactivate or otherwise set it up. And assume any hotspot facility would use a data plan which...

    New COMAND Icon

    I recently received an email from Mercedes Me asking me to agree to the "Special Terms of Use for Life Traffic Information - Car-to-X Communication". I logged in and did this (and a couple of other features I hadn't used before. Next time I got in the car I had a new icon on the COMAND screen...

    Rear Fog Lights - 2015 E350

    Thank you everyone. Much appreciated. I will stopp worrying that something is broken :-) I always assumed cars with single lights did so to save money on build costs, but they can't argue that on the E Class I hope.

    Rear Fog Lights - 2015 E350

    Hi All Quick question. Does the 2015 E350 have one or two rear fog lights? I have owned the car from new but not used the fog lights until the last few days when we had really bad fog. I have one light that comes on at the rear (from memory, passenger side). Could have sworn my last E350...

    Bridgestone Tyres Splitting on 2015 E350

    Got my current E350 in October 2015 (second E350 I have owned). This had a build date of late September 2015. First car had Continental tyres on, but this one has Bridgestone Potenza. Not a problem - or so I thought. At my first service at 15k back in August (hit the mileage trigger...

    Keyless - Kick Boot to Open?

    Interesting. Thank you. Didn't think about tow bar. Car is clean so not down to dirt. Be interested to know if anyone else has the factory fit folding tow bar and the kick sensor working. Will ask dealer next time I have cause to be there as well.

    Keyless - Kick Boot to Open?

    It was part of the Premium Plus package and is termed "Keyless Go Comfort Package" in the list of what that pack includes. The E Class manual doesn't indicate there are different variations so am assuming I have it fitted and am either doing it wrong or have a fault. For those who have it...

    Keyless - Kick Boot to Open?

    I have embarrassed myself sufficiently already trying to activate it :-)

    Keyless - Kick Boot to Open?

    I know what options are fitted as I specified them. Keyless is a single option - there were not different variations of it. I know that there can be regional variations sometimes. On the face of it though, if I have Keyless then I should be able to kick the book open :-)

    Keyless - Kick Boot to Open?

    Just changed my car from a 2010 E350 to a 2015 E350. One of the features I have now that I didn't previously is Keyless. The manual says I should be able to open the boot by makinrg a kicking motion towards the lower centre of the back bumper. The theory being that if you have your hands...

    New E350 - 9G Gearbox - Late Changing/5th Max

    Car details in signature. Only had the car two weeks and only put 600 miles on it so far, and very happy. Upgraded from a fully loaded 2010 E350. This car is a big improvement over that one. Experienced something odd today. Set off from a car park and it held in 1st gear for a long time...

    Blind Spot Assist Inoperative

    Cleaning the car made no difference so off to dealer I guess! What is the most likely cause?

    Blind Spot Assist Inoperative

    I have had occasional failues on the adaptive lights and the lane keeping assist. They always reset after engine off/on. I did have dealer look at lake keeping assist going inoperative but it was working when they saw it and no fault was found. Could these all be related? I just put them down...

    Blind Spot Assist Inoperative

    On the way home last night I got the Blind Spot Assist Inoperative message on the display. This stayed on for about 5 minutes which was the remainder of my journey. I then turned the engine off and removed the key before I started the engine up again. The yellow triangles in the mirrors came...

    Thanks both. Much appreciated. Will inflate tomorrow morning to full load pressures when cold and reduce it back down after my many towing runs.

    Tyre Pressure Question when Towing

    Thank you for the reply. I am not towing a heavy load but the trailer will be full as will the boot and back of the car. We will be making multiple trips involving several hours on the motorway each way - almost all the towing will be on the motorway. If I inflate to maximum pressure would...

    Tyre Pressure Question when Towing

    I am going to tow for the first time in about 14 years, and the first time in the E350 in 5 year of owning it. Moving house and using a borrowed trailer. Nothing too big - trailer is smaller than the car. Should I inflate the tyres for load or not? The picture on the fuel flap shows...

    Engine Sounds Rough Under Load

    Never got to the bottom of it, but it cleared up on it's own. I put it down to a bad batch of fuel making it run rough maybe. Thankfully no repeat since. Hope you get yours sorted. I know how annoying these things can be.
