    E55 or 63?

    In the real world you wouldn’t as you would have to do some modifications to make it do so. I plan on leaving mine stock. It depends what you want from each car. I wanted the better styling and the option of anything other than silver. Most e55’s are silver where as Iv been able to pick a few...

    E55 or 63?

    Sorry yes I bought the car, Iv replaced the cam adjuster plates and it has had the oil and filter changed. I’m planning on doing the head bolts as part of good practice along with the cam buckets and I’m going to fit a timing chain if upon inspection there’s any wear on the guides.

    63 Motorsports M156 Camshaft adjuster plate repair kit

    i torqued then to about 25nm, there was rumour of it being 18 but after seeing tachos video i went with his spec along with a dab of loctite on each bolt so they can't come loose and let them sit overnight before refitting so they have time to dry properly. if you haven't done timing etc before...

    30 pin connector to Bluetooth connectivity?

    Yeah I have selected aux, I had suspected maybe the cable but it works everywhere else. I was also wondering if maybe it wasn’t working due to it being a phone rather than an I pod. The 30 pin connector does disappear through the back of the glovebox and assuming into the head unit. I’m...

    30 pin connector to Bluetooth connectivity?

    No I have heard of people fitting a module or whatever it’s called to the 30 pin iPod connector in the glovebox and you can then connect your phone to play music through the head unit I’m aware the one in the arm rest is phone call specific only

    Can anyone recommend a 30 pin to Bluetooth module? That will fit and actually work in my w211 E-class? there is an aux Input but doesn’t seem to work or isn’t connected, but I’d prefer to be able to Bluetooth my phone to the module and play music through that instead of having it constantly...

    7G-Tronic Gearbox Rough Upwards Gearchanges, Especially When Cold

    The transmission is still an easy service as long as the garage has the tools to do it, you don’t have to be a specialist to have the right tools for doing certain jobs on it. Just ask wether they can carry the job out as there is special tools to do the job. If they don’t have the tools they...

    63 Motorsports M156 Camshaft adjuster plate repair kit

    Mine has been Mercedes Maintained until 2017, I don’t have the receipts but I contacted Mercedes who sent me a list of what the car was booked in for, 2 and a half pages full of work, it was then owned by a German car specialist and then onto myself. I’m hoping to restore it a bit and it’s also...

    63 Motorsports M156 Camshaft adjuster plate repair kit

    Looks clean 😍 engine bay looks immaculate aswell. I’m toying with getting my cam covers done due to some oxidisation. Can’t see why it’s a resto project unless you bought it in bad shape?

    63 Motorsports M156 Camshaft adjuster plate repair kit

    I hope you have plenty spare cash, I’m sure the cams are around £600 each, adjusters around the same plus the price for the lifters although INA have apparently got better lifters unless Mercedes have a superceeded part no, I have heard of people fitting the lifters from an sls black series but...

    63 Motorsports M156 Camshaft adjuster plate repair kit

    All going well, all 4 plates had some wear, inlets more than exhaust as it seems to be most common. You get new plates as well as new pins for them also and they are definitely harder material even just by tapping each plate you can hear the difference in material. Next on the agenda is flush...
