CLS55s and tires...
Do the CLS' NEED to have MO approved tires? The cost isn't an issue, it just seems to be more restrictive on what tires are available with the markings. The tires on it are 285/35/18 (not standard CLS wheels but they are AMG)
Also, does anyone know what...
So, been without a merc now for a few years and must say I regret selling the CL55 AMG...
I'm looking at getting a 55 plate CLS55 AMG.....it needs to be a 55 reg for a few reasons...
My Private plate is a 55 reg...and as such can only go on a 55 or newer car.
I like the cheaper road tax of £295...
I'm looking into lowering my cls 55 amg . Has anyone here done so and can you point me in the right direction?
I've come across this lowering kit as I think it may be the right one but open to your opinions:
Lowering kit W219 CLS320CDI, CLS350, CLS500, CLS550, CLS55, CLS6
After looking around for a while, I managed to find a very well maintained silver one!
Heres the ad :
Mercedes-Benz CLS 5.5 CLS55 AMG 4dr
Albeit high mileage, it was in very good condition, no expense spared, all receipts and serviced on time, has a good MOT history too.
Got it for £9,400...
Plan on going CLS shopping in a couple of weeks, as bonus comes through this month.
Anyone thinking of selling up?
Mileage not too much of an issue
FSH either dealer or specialist
Not too fussed on colour but prefer black if possible
Single slat grill is a bonus
Had my CLS55 for just over 6 months now, sorted out a few niggles (seat control box, ball joints, blocked cats) and slowly getting her in tip top shape. Also did a few mods, Black grill, Black wheels, side badges, Carbon Wrapped pillars, decat and remap.
Safe to say though one of...
Considering buying one of these to sit alongside my C63 and potentially a future investent..
Do the 5.4 engines suffer any common problems? How reliable is the airmatic suspension and are transmissions reliable or do they suffer any issues? Anything in particular i should be looking out for...
I wondered if you'd be able to help me shed some light on this. I've owned my CLS55AMG for the last 2 years and it's always ran faultlessly. It has however always had this weird whining/grinding noise coming from the underside of the car towards the rear of the engine.
im looking for a nice cls55 amg. Ideally silver. Must have the 19" 5 spoke alloys. Less than 100k, must have excellent maintenance records.
Wondering if anyone is thinking of selling shortly?
While I personally feel the interior of my 11 year old CLS55 has aged quite well say in comparison to the E55 and even some of the C63s, I want to make my car look and feel more modern inside as it is still showing its age compared to new Mercs/other cars.
Obvious things are the steering wheel...
i'm looking for an exhaust clamp as mine is breaking up but i'm loathed to pay £24 from Merc, but i can't seem to find one online, it looks like a Mikalor clamp except instead of it having flat clamping surfaces it's kind of curved. Part number is A0004901041
Any suggestions would be great
