    E400d 4MATIC oil question

    Aw man, thats not too good. Hopefully didnt impact you too much. With the air suspension driving at some fast speeds makes you feel like you are cruising along at 70 lol.

    Can my car “auto brake” when on cruise control?

    That is just to stop you having an accident. It autobreaks the car if it thinks you are about to crash. Standard feature in all cars now.

    Can my car “auto brake” when on cruise control?

    TBH from experience if you are never going to use its best not having it. I bought a C220 few years back just for the distronic and 2 days later developed a fault. The MB garage took 1 week to find the issue after replacing the star badge, radar sensor and eventually after none of that working...

    E400d 4MATIC oil question

    TBH, i don't think MB will give that in writing. I have spoken to 2 MB dealers. My local one in Edinburgh and MB in portsmouth and both told me the same thing. I will be around 3l as well when I go for my next service. I think it's not considered an issue as an E400d is quite rare in...

    Can my car “auto brake” when on cruise control?

    Active Distronic Assist is an optional extra which costs around £1600. It's not that common but I would highly recommend it if you ever have an option in the future. As mentioned by others a few give away signs that your car has it: -shiny printed MB star logo on front - on newer cars the...

    Keyless entry - paranoid about theft

    Ultimately if somebody is going to steal your car they will. Any security device is going to slow the thief down and hopefully put them off trying to steal the car. That's the purpose of getting additonal security devices. The thief wouldn't know you have a ghost so when they try and boost...

    E400d 4MATIC oil question

    I had a similar issue. I spoke to my local mb dealer and the master tech said the E400d uses around 1k of oil per 1k miles so its normal. I keep 1l bottle in my boot in case it needs topped up. I first topped up at 2500 miles after a service and will need to top up again soon at 8kmiles. Car...

    Dipstick on a W213?

    I think the W213 has only a digital dipstick which you can view on your dashboard. It can sometimes be slightly off however if the oil gets low it will tell you to add x number of liters in. My 213 is the E400d and I usually need to top up 1 litre every 5 to 7k miles depending on how I drive.

    Keyless entry - paranoid about theft

    Ghost is the best thing in my opinion. Nobody can steal your car unless they lift it onto a tow truck. You can now get a fob for your ghost as well rather than entering a code each time and the fob works only when you are in your car. All approved dealers charge the around same price so don't...

    W213 Driver Window Switch Replacement

    Hi, My driver window switch has popped out. I am guessing it needs replaced and was wondering can I simply pull on it and then replace it with a new one or does the whole door panel need to come off and the switch console removed? Thanks

    Tyre Pressures W213

    I didn't literally mean they are going to explode. I stated it metaphorically. I don't want to inflate my tyres outwith the recommended maximum psi hence I was asking for advice.

    Tyre Pressures W213

    Hi, So I am heading in a trip and my car will have 5 passengers and the boot will have several suitcases. I looked at the fuel filler cap and it says 51 psi however the tyres state 50 psi max pressure. This is for 275/45/20. I was slightly confused and didn't want my tyres to explode so I...

    Awful quality audio over Bluetooth w212

    Really, that is strange. Could just be on older MB models. I never had any issues on my w205 or current w213

    Awful quality audio over Bluetooth w212

    Looks like you are using an android. Go to settings, sounds and vibrations then sound quality and you should be in a menu that looks similar to the picture I shared above. Or go to settings and search equaliser.
