I can't believe that I have actually ordered my new car. It's been 3 years of searching for a convertible/roadster; and the same amount of time thinking that I can't sell the CLS55.
Well, I know I will regret it, but I can't have 3 cars, and I must have the top down experience this year...
Finished washing my car this afternoon and when I started it up to move it back on the drive it made a Big Bang noise and then a really bad knocking. At closer inspection it looks like the pulley is knackered on the air con pump.
Tried to take a picture but it's not very obvious.
I am selling my CLS55, It has the rare 030 factory performance package, details below;
AMG front bumper wth special mesh inset and body modifications for rear tyres
Alcantara AMG sport steering wheel
186 mph (300 km/h) top speed (electronically limited)
AMG "Nurburgring" suspension system...
Had my CLS for nearly a year now. It's been good fun and I've enjoyed working on it but it's reached a level where I can't go any further in the passion of engineering and hobby stuff without spending silly money on a Weistec charger etc
chap on PH bought a CLS55 for the engine .. he's putting the engine/gearbox into an old Merc.
but the rest of the bits are for sale

My work XJ has gone now so looking for a replacement daily. Was looking at a Maserati QP V but the ideal would be a ZF Auto that is a little more than my ideal budget for a nice one. Also not sure about the variator issues they can suffer from.
Got my attention to a CLS55 or CLS500 as a...
I'm after rebuilding my supercharger but can't seem to find any info on doing it?, have many people on the forum had it done or even done it themselves? Want to know if there's a kit you can buy or even if there's any popular specialists that do them?
Whenever I search online i end up at the...
I want to change the piston ring in my pump
as it's got lazy due to the leek I had .
Can I just take the pump off .
Was wondering if it had a valve on the system to keep the air in or will I need to support the car when it's all released . Cheers
Do find my car seems rather slow to go up the
gears in manual mode , it feels like an age to feel
the next gear , I know you can have a map on the
Soft wear but would this speed it up or is it just
how this old rugged box is !!
Well finally got around to fitting my S/c pump
today , overall about 11/2 hr job , pretty straight
forward if you have all the proper tools ,
Good pliers , pipe clamps and some 10/8 mm
sockets .0h and a couple of led torches ;)
Can anyone comments on the above? As I do believe they both shares the same chassis?
I am currently looking to fit a set of BC coilovers for my cls55. But they only do this for w211.
To fit the coilovers over the airmatic cars i will need the rear control arm from a non airmatic car, can...
So in 2 months of my cls ownership I've had to
A new battery
New S/C cooling pump (to be fitted )
New parking sensors x4 (to be fitted)
New rear air shocks x2 ( to be fitted )
4x continental 5ps fitted .
I I've decided to get both rear air shocks done
and I'm having trouble getting someone to do
the job ! Tried a few garages with MB experience
and they say we will have to do some research
into how it's done and the time we need .
One said 5hrs per shock , but I know when
your doing one the...
I've bought a cable to connect my IPhone 5
to the the car through the AUX port but cannot
get it to work , this is the second one I've been
sent . There is a cable hard wired in for a iphone 4 , I just want this to work for my music any
help appreciated .
Does anyone know if the airmatic shocks
On the 55 are the same as the other cls models
the 500 ect , I'm guessing they might be stiffer !!
Mine keeps dropping on the rear driver side ,
I fixed a leek on the res but it's still slowly dropping ;(
Budget is £10k to £20k, which will mean either a W164 ML or W/S211.
Anything considered, even if it needs a few quid spending on it, I don't mind.
I'm scanning the usual sites and also have my feelers out elsewhere.
Apologies for making my first post on here a problem post but the guys over on Pistonheads recommended this forum. Love the car, except its stuck on my driveway going nowhere fast as it stands.
