    Driven: E300 BlueTec Hybrid

    It is based on a 250Cdi and not the 220Cdi. Power is quoted as 204hp from the diesel, and that is the 250Cdi spec.

    C350 ~33mpg :(

    I agree with jqworle on this. Seems a bit low. My aim with my C250 is to average around 48mpg on the commute. The reason is that my 2006 Impreza WRX (2.5l) gave me 24mpg on the same run, and at the same speed. If I can double the fuel economy, I can save £30 a week on fuel. That is the...

    Underwhelmed with Becker Satnav?

    The USB port in the center console provides power. I plugged in my phone on the way home, and it charged no problem. It also charged without the ignition on, so handy if you have something that needs to charge.

    Underwhelmed with Becker Satnav?

    Does the USB socket in the console provide power? If so, that can charge your phone, whilst also keeping it safely tucked away. I will give it a try on the way home today.

    Day 5 of ownership...

    Just a quicky. On the OBC there is the screen that shows the Range and current fuel consumption. Is there any way to get it to show the consumption above 40mpg? Also, on the Command screen, in the System menu, there is a graph showing the fuel consumption for the previous 15 minutes. This...

    Day 5 of ownership...

    I shall be filling up every Friday (it's convenient for my travelling). So I shall update Fuelly then. I reset the OBC when I got the car, and that is showing around 41-42mpg. After a few weeks, and my mileage settles down, I'll get a better feel for the economy. In the meantime, I'll just...

    Day 5 of ownership...

    Well, day 5 has passed, and this was the readout on the OBC when I got back from work. I did not specifically try to save fuel, but it just happened that there were no people in front of me causing me to brake, and there were no hold ups at the normal places. The car has now done 490 miles...

    24 hours to go...

    It shows which belts in the rear are fastened. My sister was in the back in the left hand seat. The icons showed a filled person on the left side, and the others ghosted, exactly like Goldfish11 said. I'll get a picture of it later. In the meantime, here is a picture of my car (finally)...

    24 hours to go...

    Sorry for not posting any pictures. I took a few on my phone, but have not had a chance to actually do anything with them yet. Moved house yesterday, and used my 24 hour old Merc as a pack horse lugging cases and general stuff the 2 minutes down the road. On a plus point, it coped well...

    24 hours to go...

    Woohoo!! 0 Hours to go. However, I am at work, and do not finish until 12pm. Car is at home on the drive. The driver has said that he will return at 1:30-2pm with the keys. How frustrating! I have asked my girlfriend to take some pictures of it for me...

    24 hours to go...

    As it is only 2 minutes walk from where I am now, I think that would have been overkill... ;) 7 cases of stuff brought back from China, plus all the boxes of things I left here will mean quite a few trips to get it all moved though.

    24 hours to go...

    All, I am waiting at work for the call from the dealer to tell me when my new C-Class is going to be delivered tomorrow. It is after 12pm, so I have the morning to get through with my hire car - Vauxhall Isignia. For the record, it is a C250 CDi Sport Edition 125 Auto Saloon. I am not sure...

    www.contracthireandleasing.com I have gone with a company called Vehicle Savers. C-Class C250CDi Sport Edition 125 7G Auto - 6+23 for £425 inc. VAT / month. I did notice they have a new set of deals for cars delivered before the end of September, but I am guessing that these are old reg...

    New C class comand and HTC Desire

    From what I have read, the contacts need to be stored on the SIM card or in the phone memory. When you add a new contact in Android, it asks where you want to save it. Default is to your gmail account. This is not on the phone or the sim card. It allows you to have your contacts available...
