    Is it worth changing air filters early?

    S204 early 2011 Side mirror repeater/indicator lens

    I all. Looks like someone has clipped my mirror resulting in just the actual repeater light lens being smashed. Pretty sure these are a part in their own right. Does anyone have either the MB part number or the actual part for the offside but that I need. Thanks Adam

    Any early CLS owners out there ?

    Hi all, I am having an internal debate whether to part with the W124 coupe, not because I have fallen out of love with it, but as i've had her a good 7/8 years now, more for a change. I was looking at E39 540i's as I do very little mileage these days and could afford the fuel. However...
