    Replacing 2016 E-class 220D... any thoughts?

    Thanks for the link. I am 100% with glojo. What an excellent thread. The decisions made by the UK product managers to limit our choices are frustrating and unnecessary :wallbash:. Based on the options available in other markets, we know it is utterly trivial to offer these choices to UK...

    Replacing 2016 E-class 220D... any thoughts?

    Yes, and I have ruled out the c-class. According the the available images and the configurator the car cannot be ordered with light colour upholstery and a matching headliner. Cream/beige leather (called macchiato by the marketing team) gives you a black headliner.😕. Even worse on the c-class...

    So it would appear! C220D Sport £39,820. E220D Sport £39,270. Metallic paint option for either car £685. This is for July 2021 production.

    Replacing 2016 E-class 220D... any thoughts?

    I think I was wrong about this. The price I looked at includes the first years road tax, which (presumably) is not part of the price the government use as the list price. So for diesel E220d or petrol E200 entry level E-class can get one for just under £40k with metallic paint. For the C-class...

    How brighten up interior

    It is a matter of taste. I am not interested in a black interior, described by the MEMERC7 as "funereal" and I agree. For my part, I wouldn't purchase a car with an interior I am not happy with. I don't buy the idea that everyone wants black, which is the story told time and again by the...

    Forthcoming C-class - headliner choices (and seat backs)

    Looking at the configurator on the MBUK site, if you choose the Macchiato coloured interior on the forthcoming C-class you get a black headliner and when you try to choose the light colour headliner in the no-cost options you are changed back to the black leather seats, which I don't want. I do...

    Replacing 2016 E-class 220D... any thoughts?

    My memory is that the coupe was released later and that was def. the position with the estate. Unusually, the saloon and the estate are being released simultaneously for the forthcoming C-Class.

    Thanks Scooby_Doo... I should have explained more clearly that it is the saloon that I am looking at. Sorry .

    Replacing 2016 E-class 220D... any thoughts?

    Yikes. I hadn't seen that. The clock is one of the great pleasures of the car :). Pleased to learn that I am not the only one who doesn't like privacy glass! I toy with the idea of buying the car I want and getting the rear glass changed but its undoubtedly expensive and presumably would be...

    Replacing 2016 E-class 220D... any thoughts?

    Thanks Tramper. An excellent point. This is one of the reasons for staying with my current car. £550 in year 2 onwards seems ridiculous. Looking at the current list prices for an entry level E-class or C-Class, be it petrol or diesel, with only one option of metallic paint, they all come in...

    Help please - thinking of buying a C Class.

    Martinjs wrote "there are plenty of good independent MB specialists around". True but beware: I had my car serviced by an independent specialist (approved by MB) and there were no problems with the service provided, and we got a proper Mercedes stamp in the book (so to speak). The unexpected...

    Replacing 2016 E-class 220D... any thoughts?

    Hi I have a current model E220D, purchased at the start of the model in March 2016. I am considering buying the same car, face-lift version, but wonder about the following. Any thoughts from experts or even just enthusiasts on these forums would be welcome. I tend to keep my cars for 5-6 years...

    E-Class -COMAND not working properly after windscreen replaced

    OK. Thanks for the feedback. Have now realised that the speed limit recognition isn't working either - it seems to work, but this only based on sat nav data, not the camera. EnEm

    E-Class -COMAND not working properly after windscreen replaced

    I don't know if anyone can shed any light on this problem with W213 widescreen COMAND. Windscreen had a crack and was replaced by MB main Dealer (at cost of nearly £700). After this, the COMAND is not fully working - after entering a destination the time does not count down as you drive to the...

    Good advice... but in that case give me back my basic contols, buttons, levers and knobs. :D

    W213 - six months on... mixed feelings

    Hi. The issue is not can you clear the warning. It is what is the remaining range available to the driver before the car conks out through lack of fuel. When the tank is full and running out of fuel is not a risk, the vehicle displays the remaining range (under several different options...

    W213 - six months on... mixed feelings

    OK thanks, will double check but I think they have "improved" the software on the W213 to make sure the driver. has no idea how much range is left!

    W213 - six months on... mixed feelings

    A fair question..:D I want to write down the mileage on the receipt after filling up. An old habit. If I am the passenger, the mileage is gone, before I get a chance. Also, in the old car the button to mute the speakers or turn off the irritating spoken instructions was accessible to dirve...
