    Dash Camera placement & the Law?

    Generally anything placed between the driver and the wiper swept area of the windscreen will be considered to be an obstruction to vision and therefore illegal. Obviously for the purposes of an MOT it can be removed prior to the test. You are unlikely to be picked up on it by the Police unless...

    Recommended exhaust shops for cheaper cars - ATS, F1 autocentre etc

    Buy the system from Eurocarparts and fit it yourself. A lot cheaper and a sense of achievement.

    "Interesting" news for European owners of recent Mercedes diesel cars!

    This is a 'voluntary' recall for the vehicles likely affected by the issue. Even if my car was one of them it would not be going back to the dealer for a ECU re-flash which could have a detrimental effect on performance.

    How to do an W/S211 E320 EGR blank

    I was aware of the reputation of Celtic prior to having the remap done. Apart from releasing the extra ponies I was wanting to blank the EGR valve to stop premature wear on my engine. I have no way except the seat of my pants to verify the figures quoted but I'm well happy with the old girl:D

    How to do an W/S211 E320 EGR blank

    It looks like I've blown my quota of pictures.... :wallbash: I fitted the new blank on the exhaust manifold side of the EGR pipe to make reassembly easier. It's a bit fiddly to get fat hands in to hold gaskets, the blank and wee screws in place but I managed fine lying across the top of the...

    How to do an W/S211 E320 EGR blank

    I recently had a Celtic Tuning remap by Redgorton Garage near Perth and as part of this I had them (electronically) delete the EGR from the ECU. The effect of deleting the EGR from the ECU means the ECU no longer looks for it functioning, although the valve itself is still open to the crud...

    Hi from South Lanarkshire

    Hi all, :cool: I've returned to MB ownership after roughly a 12 year break. I used to have a 1991 300TE that I loved. I recently bought a 57 plate S211 E320 from a used car dealer in Glasgow. It's got a few boost/limp mode related problems that the dealer is trying to resolve at the...
