My 2010 manual C200 blue eff diesel has been maintained only at MB main dealer.

my 2006 c220 cdi sport edition rear outer right sensor played up, im trying to figure out how to remove the rear bump strip which houses the sensors. it is a one piece bump strip going all the way round the bumper.
So today on my way home I had an embracing encounter with a very big speed bump. I normally look out for bumps and pot holes and always aim to swerve away from them of its safe to do so. This one caught me off guard it was a dark road and I missed it.

So today I was reversing out of our property onto a relatively quiet estate road.
Our garage is situated at the back of the property and the reverse requires you to line up straight in order to reverse alongside the house to the road, the other side of the drive is a wooden fence, the gap is...
Hi I have a W124 estate that we use heavily as a racing tow barge it has the hydraulic suspension which is brilliant but the two hydraulastic units only last a few months leading to the familiar rock solid rear suspension and instant sick bag is there something I am doing wrong I am using...
Last thursday evening I was driving home, sat in traffic and a bloke drove in the back of m 2002 W210 estate (S210 I guess).
Scratch on bumper.
Tailgate pushed in (but not the boot itself - all the right shape). The boot shuts fine too.
Got a payout coming from the 3rd party too.
The CLA coupe is due a price bump in the states according to this article.
2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA Gets Price Bump » AutoGuide.com News
This model has been a runaway success in the states evidently but less so here.
Whether this heralds a price rise in Europe or not remains to be seen?
I need to recolour and lacquer the rear headrests in my CLK, which I noticed have become flaky. When I attempted to clean one of them, the outer coating, which I assume is a lacquer, started to peel off in opaque white sheets. It looks like the headrest's got dandruff!
The rest of the interior...

How do you remove the bump strips from the car? It's a e55 amg if that matters I want to take them all off for cleaning behind and wrapping of the Crome part but I want to remove the whole part (body colour and chrome)
I have a manual diesel blue efficiency, this leads to stalling presumably if I do not wait long enough for the motor to get going properly before bringing the clutch up.
Sometime just dipping the clutch gets it to restart itself automatically (is there a config option to extend the time...
So someone bumped up slowly into me today as i was waiting at traffic lights.
Will need a new bumper i expect as it has a number of scratches and dents/creases. Everything else seems fine but will get it all checked out.
Thankfully all involved healthy and fairly happy.

Having started a few diesels by hand this one I can understand.
But this one I would think is much harder. I guess it is using the mass of the wheels as a flywheel.
And this one is just different...

Running eibach springs (40mm)& Bilstein B8 Shock Absorbers. Do I need stock bump-stops or something else?
Do bump stops influence ride height or simply govern the travel permitted for a Shock Absorber?
parked up in a supermarket carpark yesterday to go and get some money, got back in the car and started to program an address in the satnav and the car across the "corridor" slowly reverses out of his space and straight into my car!
First thing I did was hit the horn, but with the...
