Looking to change my front brake pads. Have noticed euro car parts have ATE ceramic so looked at a few reviews some good and some bad.
Any recommendations on pads to buy? EBC Red Stuff came up in a few searches but some people saying that the initial bite is not as good.
Question from any W204 C class owners.
With the 'Eco' start stop feature enabled, can you hold the car on the break pedal without stopping the engine.
All other cars I've driven with start stop require you to push the brake pedal slightly harder once stationary to turn the engine off, my merc...
Well after just 12 months the CLS has gone … so, a few random thoughts and observations.
Registered Dec 2014 but was 2015 MY. I bought at 19000 and took it to 34000 miles.
Two minor issues so had to call Merc recovery twice.
The fuel filler jammed close and the emergency release snapped...
Clicking noise coming from ABS pump every time I brake!
Right this is driving my insane.
I have just finished painting my brake calipers I did it by leaving them attached to the car so there hasn't been any air introduced to the system. Simply detached the calipers from the mounts removed...
As awoken early on Sunday Morning by the German Police to tell me my car had been broken into by two youngsters, luckily a neighbour spotted them.
When I went down to check their was no damage to the car with no signs of breaking? Has anyone heard of anything similar? Didn't have anything...
Should the w211 estate e280 alert or warn when parking brake engaged?
I can't count how many time I have set off down the road and forgetting to release the darn thing.
Having adjusted the parking brakes on more occasions than I'd like to admit due to the above I thought it high...
Passed the 1000 miles yesterday and finally put the CLA into sport+ and pushed it a bit, what a car it is, the bang of the sports exhaust and downshift blips are addictive. Endless grip and all the brakes you could need. I've not redlined it but got close a few times. Be a while before I try...
I've got a clk500 on a 54 plate that I bought recently with a small front bump and it's a cat D with 160000 miles on the clock
I'm not convinced yet either to brake it or sell it as it is I will put some pics up here and the parts price list and if there will be enough interest I might...
I hope you can help, I have an issue with my car where the break light works intermittently. I can be driving for half an hour and it may appear on the dashboard to say the break light isn't working, and it does in fact stop working. After returning to the car after work for example...
Has anyone bought an aftermarket wind break for their R230 SL?
The one on the other half's car has two holes in it (cigarette burn maybe :dk:) and as minor as it is, it's the little things that detract from it's condition.
So I was on eBay and came across a few of them for sale that are...
Hello lovely people, I just looked at my last posts and it was 7 years ago!! Time flies far too fast. I would love to say that I've been travelling the world, or off driving my dream cars, but looking back it appears I've just been working.
Anyway, it's time for a V8 MB convertible. I have a...

Just a quick post (after reading forums first)
My brakes are not the best. Little bit spongey and lax.
Don't get me wrong- I've owned other manual/ auto Mercs and their brakes have been top dog.
I hate to say this but the Audi braking system is next level stuff...
