    430 Estate

    The only way I can possibly sell my W208 430 (which has sat on the drive for the last 6 months unused as im driving a V70 estate at the minute) is to get another Mercedes but it HAS to be another 430. Even better if someone is looking for a W208 430 and has a 430 estate they want to move on...

    W208 430 throttle response

    Thought this might be the best place to ask (in as much as I believe it to be working as designed). I know the throttle on the 208 CLKs go from mechanical to electrical, but as much as I love the car the 'pedal in a pillow' effect somewhat dulls the experience, most notably whilst moving away...

    CLK 430 Front lower arms

    Are these different to the rest of the range and the clk 55 ? SKS can't match them and the listings that GSF & Euro have are the same part number which seems to fit everything but the CLK 430? Can anyone check the MB parts system for me ?
