    Can I turn off washer jets for the headlights?

    At this time of year I find myself cleaning the windscreen of flies etc. After the pre-requisite number of windscreen cleans the jets activate on the headlights covering the front of my lovely black SL350 with the fluid, which then dries to leave watermarks etc. Does anyone know whether I can...

    Are Hybrid mpg and co2 levels fantasy and misleading

    Is it just me ? I'm fed up reading about stella mpg and minuscule co2 emissions on hybrid exec cars, which attract all the relevant benefits of low emission vehicles including full tax allowances for businesses that buy them and low benefit in kind for employees that run them. And yet "real...

    SL 350 buying advice

    My sons have grown up and have their own cars and so the need for a 4 door car is now less. As a HUGE Merc advocate I'm now looking at the SL. Needing fuel economy (and so a 350 for me) and a panoramic roof, is there anything else I should consider when buying one if these. I'm looking at...

    DRLs don't mean rears are on!!! Is it me ?

    Day after day in fog, rain and dusk, the number of cars with no lights or relying on their front facing Daylight Running Lights, seems huge. I know my own automatic lights don't always activate in fog, but I have the sense nonetheless to switch them on manually. And as for rain etc. I travel...

    Mercedes Me = Tracker?

    Does anyone know whether the Mercedes Me app acts as an acceptable tracker for car insurance purposes? I know I can trace my car if I've forgotten where I parked it, provided its within a certain radius (as if i'd ever do that :confused:) however I wondered whether the system could track the car...

    Mercedes me app

    Well what a pile of poo. Feckin hopeless in my view, considering the brand that it is meant to represent. Everything about it disappoints. From a tortuous log in that requires a password far more complex than my bank, together with one of those "type in the chracaters" in the box which...

    My 17 year old son's W211 E320 V6

    Who'd have thought ? 13 years ago I bought my first ever brand new Mercedes, an E270 cdi W211. An awesome car and I was very very chuffed. I was 40. Fast forward to 2015, and after 8 months with a driving licence and in a BMW 116i, my 17 year old son asks if he could get a W211 E class, only he...

    Command online with Tom Tom traffic

    For some reason the live traffic information has stopped working such that regardless of where I navigate to, there are no traffic problems to be had. In contrast to the Map app no my HTC, and the fact that I'm actually sitting in a jam! Any thoughts what can be done to rectify? It's on a...

    Designo Alanite Grey - thoughts ?

    The new CLS is on order, Diamond Whie as my current car, but mad moment about the Designo Alanite Grey..... Seems to be a sort of Matt Grey, which as a student in the 80s I feel I could have "rattle canned" from the local auto parts shop What do the team think ? Worth £2,500 because no other...

    Aargh, kerbs in Monaco car parks . :(

    Why do I feel like a learner driver again the minute I'm faced with a French underground car park more suited to a Renault 4 or 2CV, complete with helter skelter entrances and exits with 12" kerbs ....". The CLS did not fair well today and I only have myself to blame for the fact that I now...

    Yesterday I ordered the 2015 CLS for delivery last week of October. There seems to be very little with the dealers about the specific specs and it was a forum member that put me onto the Internet new car websites which do seem to have some details. Ended up on Orange Wheels and what an...
