    W221 seat bladders

    Hi All, One of the side bolsters on the driver's seat (dynamic seats) is leaking. You can hear air escaping when it should be inflating. STAR reports that the bladder isn't holding pressure so I suspect it has a hole in it. According to EPC the bladders aren't available individually. They all...

    W221 Wheel Bolts - What size are they?

    Hi All, I can't remove my wheel bolts!! 17mm socket doesn't fit properly (nor does anything else is my socket set). I managed to get one off with a 17mm socket but not comfortable forcing the socket on the others bolts as it's clearly not the right thing to use. Anyone come across this...

    W221 opinions on reliability

    Hi All, I'm considering a W221 S500 (or S63 if price is right). What is the general consensus on these please? Thinking of looking at an 08 plate S500 tomorrow. I seem to remember the early W221s had reliability issue so would assume an 08 plate comes in to that category? Are there...

    Replace 211 E Class with something smaller - Recommendations please

    Hi All, Time for my mum to give up her E Class. She wants something smaller so easier to park etc. She drove a Toyota Yaris the other day and loved it. But I can't accept that. Whilst I agree that she needs something smaller, I feel going from an E class down to a yaris is too great a leap. What...

    Hi all, Been considering a used M Class for a while now but can't find a good spec low milage etc. So been talking to couple of local dealers to see if they can source something.
