    E320 CDI - Turbo gone, options and advice welcome

    Hi all, I have had the displeasure of running a 2004 E320 CDI which has been cursed since I bought it for my wife several years ago. To cut a long story short I've thrown far more money at it than it deserves, to the point where I'm so committed to the thing I can't see it scrapped. I had a...

    TPMS - Where to source aftermarket?

    Cracked Injector - repair or replace?

    I have spent the best part of a week fixing black death on my E320 CDI. I replaced the seal but it was still leaking after re-assembly. I did buy a bore face cutting tool but it seems that it does not reach the base of the injector. Ive ordered a more expensive laser set now which arrives...

    New Member - Tectite E55 AMG

    Hi, I'm new to the forum having just picked up my first Mercedes. I've bought a lovely 2004 Tectite grey E55 AMG. I was happy to buy a more common silver one as I love the sleeper look of these cars but I was sold on the colour when I saw it. I looked at a few but paid a bit over the odds...
