Silver with black/maroon leather
FSH - MB and specialists
550bhp by MSL

I have a CLK 270 CDI Elegance Auto and want to change the factory stereo. I have seen some 2005 versions of the stereo on ebay, but I just want to know if they will fit and work in my car?

The technician has commented:

The pipes were fitted last year year by a superb indie and as far as I know there's no reason why they shouldn't be...

Everything sounds like it should, turn the key and get a single crank noise then nothing.
I disconnected the batteries today and...
My SL500 (R230) - the one with the nightmare ABC suspension - has suddenly developed an alarmingly loud, metallic scraping/grating noise from the rear end.
First of all, I thought it must be an exhaust component adrift, but a (very limited) inspection of the underside revealed nothing loose...
