im a 21 year old with my first Mercedes (a 2001 C270 CDI AVANTGARDE) shes a rolling project car and im looking forward to tapping this wealth of knowledge so i can reinstate a beautiful car to her former tire slaying glory!
On my W220 S500 a few strange things have been happening, hopefully nothing too serious.
I have been sitting in the car for the past few days, radio on, oiling the sun roof track and generally figuring out this "new to me" car. I did remove the command unit to install a tape adapter...
Bought a copy of WIS from ebay to help me out a little - Although I can get WIS to install. EPC will not work at all...comes up with CRC errors. Anyone know of any software utility to correct CRC problems?
Cars getting inspected today by RAC, will collect on tues but it needs a A service.
No problem with that BUT it needs (in order to maintain the MB service history)
Park brake test
Flex coupling adjust and test
Fuel / air filters
Brake fluid change
as well as the A service
well, this is the one that got past AMG....!
unusal set of AMG alloys on it, with AMG wing mirrors, and boot spoiler... :crazy:
Having taken my car in on the 20th June they seem to hold the car for serveral days, basically until the 28th June after which they had seemed to have done none of the work.
I am slightly dissapointed by the lack of information available, and I was told someone would ring me back serveral...
