    Dynamic Handling Package - E Coupe

    Has anybody got this feature and how effective is it ?? My C207 has 19" alloys and on some roads it would be nice to soften the suspension somewhat. Although MB have added 19" alloys to all C207's they still list the DHP as an extra @ £550. I've just found the only C207 (E400 excluded) I've...

    Rough road handling! Life span on struts and springs?

    Hi all, I'm wondering what the effective lifespan is of factory fitted struts and springs? My R129 is really starting to rattle and bounce alarmingly when driving over rougher country roads. I know that the staggered 18 inch wheels don't help and I'm having some suspension components checked...

    SL350 r230 Woolley handling

    She's nearly 11 years old now and the handling doesn't feel especially sharp - I appreciate these aren't race cars but it feels a bit tired on the road and almost disconnected, more so at the rear end. The kind of feeling that can only be described as the wheels shiftying around under the body...

    W124 handling problems

    Hi everyone, hope you can help. I've just got rid of my 190E for a W124 300D, and all's well apart from a few handling issues... - At anything above 60mph, it seems to sway and weave quite badly - It tramlines slightly at all speeds, feels like a slight tugging through the wheel - It feels...

    Improving ride quality and handling of a C350 CDI sport

    I've had numerous cars and driven many more, from track biased to luxo barges. I find my C350 CDI saloon Sport quite harsh in terms of comfort, but without the handling benefits. I reckon the springs rates are too high and the dampers don't seem to react to road irregularities well enough. Too...

    C-class handling, is this normal?

    I have a 2011 w204 c class. I'm really happy with it but the handling is very odd and I was hoping other owners could tell me if it's normal. I do a lot of motorway driving and I find the car is constantly pulling in one direction or the other. When the road cambers or if there is any crown...

    W204 AMG Handling Pack front grille part number

    Hi, I've spent some time looking at grille options for our W204 AMG Sport Estate to break up the sea of silver at the front and recalled seeing a post that suggested that the genuine AMG Handling pack grille was a good option. Does anyone know the part number?:confused:

    C63 Coupe sport handling mode display

    I have tried to search the interwebz with regards to this, but to no avail. I like to monitor what is happening, but when Sport handling mode is selected I do not appear to be able to view anything else on the MFD. Am I missing something obvious or is that just the way it is? Other...
