    My 'New' W208 Courtesy Of Clive @ Benzworx

    I’ve owned a 1998 230 CLK Elegance 5 speed manual for very nearly 2 years now and really from the first time I drove it I loved it. It originally had 88k on the clock, service history up to 76k but it had perhaps fallen on hard times slightly and was starting to show its age- courtesy of a...

    Question About Floormats

    The front mats on my W208 are the original thick velour type but are looking a bit tired now after nearly 15 years so I was looking to replace them. Obviously I can get them from the main dealer but they cost and arm and a leg, so I've been searching on Ebay for genuine mats at a cheaper price...

    Car Insurance Just Ruined My Day!

    I've been the owner of a w208 230 CLK Elegance for about 18 months now and I've been very pleased with it but let's face it you get the wanderlust now and again and consider other cars. Well to cut to the chase, I've seen a W208 320 CLK Elegance, FSH,very low miles, exactly the same colour as...

    Fuel System Decarboniser On This Week's Wheeler Dealers

    I don't know if anybody saw this weeks Wheeler Dealers on Discovery or caught it on Killer Hertz's very useful link thread but I was fascinated by the engine clean up done by Edd China on the Jag XK8. For those that haven't yet seen it, they take a late 90's XK8 circa 80k on the clock and Edd...

    HELP!!! I Have A Swimming Pool In My CLK

    I probably made a mistake last week when a mate of mine asked how my 1998 W208 CLK was shaping up and I replied 'Oh bloody brilliant no problems at all!' Because today I've discovered a bit of a problem....... here goes. Like most of the country over the past few days we have had heavy rain...

    W208 Instrument Cluster Change

    I've decided to change the instrument cluster and heater controls on my CLK Elegance to the white sport dials but have a quick question about mileage correction. The new dial shows over 150k while my car has done just over 101k. Everything works fine on the new items and I think the white dials...

    Petition Against Planned Closure Of All DVLA Local Offices

    I had to visit my local DVLA office last week and noticed a poster there regarding plans by the government to close all 39 local DVLA offices. I have used this office a couple of times in the past year and always found them helpful and efficient, as opposed to the service provided by DVLA...

    This Is Why Insurance Goes Up Every Year

    Back in February 2010 I was involved in a minor damage RTA whereby a woman in a Ford Fiesta drove into the back of my car at a speed of no more than 10 mph. It caused damage to the rear boot lid, bumper and boot floor and while it was a bit of a shock I was not injured in any way. The woman...

    I've seen advertised on fleabay a fully working 2004 model MF 2540 double DIN CD/ Radio MERC PART NUMBER A 209 8 20 2689 reasonably priced. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the single DIN unit fitted to my CLK apart from the fact that it refuses to play copied CD's and it can't handle...

    W208 Faulty Indicator/Wiper Stalk

    The vehicle is a 1998 Elegance in quartz blue with just under 90k on the clock, all documented and in fairly good order. Bought it on a whim about 7 weeks ago and all has been fine and dandy until last Thursday afternoon. It was a glorious spring time day here in Sheffield when I decided to...

    Key Reprogramming- What's The Real Answer

    I know there's a few threads on key reprogramming but it seems that there's quite a lot of conflicting advice regarding the issue. I ask because I've recently bought a 1998 CLK230 W208 which only has the one key, its the 3 button type. Now I know some will say you should never buy a Merc...

    Hi To Everyone

    Greetings to all. I have joined the forum after buying a 1998 CLK 230 the other day. Trawling through the net I found the MB Club site and thought what an invaluable thing it is for anybody who owns a Mercedes. The CLK has done 89k with full service history and just needs a little tidying...
