    Should 4matic change gears at much higher revs?

    Hi all, I'm not a petrol head so apologies if I get my terminology wrong. We recently bought a 2014 GLA 220 4matic, It was raining heavily the other day and I thought it was an opportunity to try the 4matic mode for the first time. I found it changed gears ( at least 1 to 4) at pretty high...

    Newer or higher up the range?

    Hi I'm looking to change cars sometime soon. I quite like my 2 door CLK coupe and don't want or need any more doors. :0) I quite like the newer C350 and E350 class coupe's but IMO they don't have as nice an interior as my current car. The dashboards are hard plastic and don't feel quite as...

    Ok so following on from my last thread, I need to replace my diff. It's current ratio is 2.82, I was thinking of replacing it with a diff from an s320 which would give it a ratio of 3.07. From what I've read, I would either: need to swap my gearbox control unit with the gearbox control unit...

    Tyres with higher speed rating are cheaper?!

    Been looking at new tyres for the Vito. Slightly puzzled why 225/55 R17 101H seem to cost significantly more than 225/55 R17 101V e.g. Continental Vanco - 225-55-17-H - etyres Continental Vanco - 225-55-17-V - etyres Same tyre make, model, size & load rating. It's not just an oddity at...

    Hi, I have an s210 e320cdi and I'm not sure if I have a problem or not when I take off from standstill it seems to pull reasonable until I let off, but if i'm cruising at say 70 and want to overtake in kick-down I get fairly weak pull in the upper rev range from say 3000rpm on but if im doing...

    Judder in floorpan @ higher speed

    Hi all My 2000 E320CDI has developed a judder which is felt through the floor pan. It appears to be from the passenger side front wheel, however there`s no shaking in the steering wheel. It is only at a certain speed. Is there a steering damper on these cars and could it be this? Thank you in...

    W208 320 Is higher octane fuel safe/worthwhile

    I have just bought a 2001 CLK 320 and really like it. Engine is nice and smooth and shows 25mpg around town and 29mpg on the open road. Would Shell V-power be better for the engine and give any increase in performance and mpg.
