    2007 W211 Stereo and Bluetooth options confusion!

    I have recently aquired a 2007 E class. It has what I think is an NTG1 stereo; single CD slot with integrated 6 Disc changer underneath and a matrix display. In the armrest flap bits, it has what I presume is a Nokia phone kit (it has a pair of curly leads each side in the arm rest part). Now my...

    Confusion over W204 Stop/Start battery charging

    So this is probably going to end up being a dumb question, but I'll ask anyway. I have a 2012 W204 Estate with Start/Stop. Presumably this means that I have 2 batteries (i've only found the one in the boot at the moment - I can't see one under the bonnet yet). Anyhow, I am looking at getting a...

    S210 Interior Light Confusion

    Either my car or myself is confused. Perhaps both. The interior light in my recently bought S210 E240 seems to be operating incorrectly. When the doors are opened, or indeed unlocked, the lights come on. However, rather than diffused lights it's the reading spot lamps. This both front and...
