    S205 Steering wheel vibration

    Maybe that is where the problem is (starting). A worn rubber or spring, shock.

    Remapping a remap, (2009, 211, om 646)

    When i bought my 211 2nd hand, I suspected it had been remapped as it smoked under hard acceleration, but it accelerated!! It was thus fine-(de)tuned by mercedes who flashed the memory (for good measure). Smokes (a lot) under hard acceleration still.

    Sorn write off

    Test driven such a car (212) the other day. Really nice interior but. Paint with stone chips, spots etc, one headlight slightly damaged, very minor dent on rear fender and I bet some suspension parts on their way out. But most importantly, it did not have the power and oomph I expected from it...

    Keep the 211 or replace with w212?

    To me, acceptable is 10% of a 10% depreciation on a brand new car. I.e 400-500 annually. However, 'i was there, done that' for the past few years. A renewal is in order. 212 vs 211 ...cost no object.

    Keep the 211 or replace with w212?

    W1ghty, the answer can be estimated quite easily if you know how often you would probably need a need a replacement and at what cost VS maintaining existing car that has near zero resale value. (Std financial management topic: lease vs buy). In non financial terms however, if the saving you make...

    Keep the 211 or replace with w212?

    However this is not about cost. (below a certain amount, cost is irrelevant) If a newer 212 will be more enjoyable and at least as reliable, then the 211 will go.

    Keep the 211 or replace with w212?

    Agreed. But what is expensive? Say 10% depreciation on a decent newer car, amounts to 1000, my estimate. Any repair on the 211 below that amount should be acceptable? (Not that I expect it). Did a fair amount of maintenance on the 211 including rear shocks, new ac compressor and ac pipes...

    . Hi guys,. I have a very high frequency vibration through the sterring wheel at around 70 mph on a certain patch of a certain road. First thoughts is that it is normal - my other cars do not like that road either but react more subtly. After watching the above video I am thinking of booking...
