    Anyone know what this is off?

    Thank you all, what the heck is that doing in my car? Oh well, maybe finally rattled loose from some recess, left by previous owner. Cheers

    Anyone know what this is off?

    Upon cleaning the car following 4 weeks of the missus driving the kids around in what appeared, at the end, to be a mobile tuck shop rather than our 08 E200K saloon, I found a piece of what I think is car interior, so can anyone tell me if it is off the car, and where it goes? Thanks all.

    MO or MO Extended?

    Just thinking on this, im about to change all 4 tyres, and I don't wanna put runflats on. If I just put four normal tyres on will it confuse my car as it has TPMS?

    Ripped off!

    As pi$$€d off as you are, I think you are doing the right thing giving them the chance to correct it, and with the proviso that you are no doubt going to have their work checked ad soon as you leave their garage :)

    W211 Rear Suspension swap finally creates car issues

    Yes, I suppose so, I undid everything at the wheel hub end. Ok, will do. What am I seeing to? is it, as Tigger says, an alignment issue? Thanks so far, all :)

    W211 Rear Suspension swap finally creates car issues

    Wow, its been, like, ages since I was last here, sorry chaps, I seem to have purchased a ridiculously reliable Mercedes. So, had our 57 Plate W211 200Komp Saloon for a while now, and on its last service, at Deutche Mark, in Doncaster, was informed of a spring on back end being on its way out...

    shortcut to W211... the post 2006 model.

    SBC? Is that the brake system? I think I did enough research and saved just enough money to get a late 57, that's not got the dodgy SBC unit has it...? So basically is it just worn suspension and listening out for timing chain rattles? Finally a Mercedes as reliable as a W124 but without the...

    Hi guys its been a while. I've just bought a W211. I used to use JAR Motorsports, John was helpful but I don't think theyre there anymore. Any ideas? Am I just looking for a garage that's not Europa, when Europa is the answer? I don't have anything against Europa, I'm just near the dearne...

    not new, but been gone a long loooong time.

    Hi guys, it's been absolutely ages since I sadly offloaded my S124. Should never have done it. And after spending 2 years trying to find a car as good as a merc, I've decided to get back on the ladder. Picked up a really lovely E200komp on a 57plate. Oh God, it's great to be back, guys

    cat d write off (v plate)

    Does anyone know how can you find out, if at all, what accident a v plate car was involved in prior to being straightened out, so to speak? Is there some sort of public record?

    Would you buy a car that...

    When I called the finance company you're right they were dead helpful, but it seemed its as though it was almost hpi clear, but not quite as though they were processing a transaction maybe? Gonna wait it out til I get the all clear from hpi, just to be safe. Buyer beware, right?

    Question, What happens if hpi check flags up a finance company has interest in a vehicle, but the previous owner has proof its paid up. Is the finance company illegal and shouldn't that be changed there and then? Surely there's no grace period allowed on that situation, right? This is...

    apologies-non Merc diesel engine question

    Thanks Dieselman. Actually, yes, I did the old arrange to see it but turn up half a day early trick. And,it fired straight up and ran lovely. Blocked breather pipe. Never thought of that. It ran strong, turbo worked fine, no blue smoke, no white smoke, no suspension clunks, and hot air was...

    apologies-non Merc diesel engine question

    Wife is looking at a fiat multipla as a second car. Before you start sniggering, we ran one up to a coupla months ago as a work car, and it never missed a beat over 3 years (apart from the suspension recall, a known fault). She picked one out to look at, but on giving it a going over, I removed...
