I'd like to fit a DAB into my 260E, but retain the power aerial for FM use.
I realise that I'll have to fit either a splitter or an additional DAB aerial, but modern head units don't seem to have an output signal to power the electric aerial.
I guess I could use a feed from the ignition and...
Hello, it's Nathan here from Modern Classics magazine. Apologies for the dual post from the AMG lounge, but I'm hoping that someone know somebody with one! Given the nature of the feature we're planning to do, it would be a shame if an AMG wasn't there.
We're looking for a Mercedes-Benz AMG...
Hello, it's Nathan here from Modern Classics magazine.
We're looking for a Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 saloon W221 for huge feature on attainable super saloons. The premise of the feature is mid 2000s Supersaloons from £15k-£30k, and we'd like AMG to be part of the equation.
We’re looking to shoot...
Eldest son is in the process of purchasing a !0 year old property in Lancashire and I was surprised to see it was not freehold but on a 999 year lease which had just been renewed. GR is £75 pa. Friends in the same town have also been purchasing brand new homes which are also leasehold. I thought...
Like Reflexboy, I bought this Apple Accelerator to Mercedes Media Interface cable thinking it would work in my 2011 build car. It works for charging only, but for the more recent cars I presume it does everything.
These are £50-£60 from Mercedes or via ebay.
I'll add the part number once...
Knowing that there are several watch collectors who frequent these forums, thought I would share this video.
As the title says. innovative, too complex, or just gimmicks? They're certainly different !
(Obviously speeded up in parts).
My 2003 r230 has command 2 with bose and i want to replace it with a modern system with bluetooth etc. Any suggestions and whether the cabling can link to the bose upgrade and whether steering wheel buttons will work?
So I saw a real C5 yesterday in town - I'm sure this only happens in Cambridge! - and this had me wondering:
- Considering the advances in electric motors, regenerative braking, batteries, energy efficient lights, carbon fibre and CAD/CAM design;
- Coupled with a more energy-conscious...
I have a mercedes clk 2003 model, with a factory fitted comand 2.0 unit. The unit features a sat-nav and tv which the tv worked fine in analogue until the digital switchover. Therefore, now doesn't work! Rather than upgrade the current unit to install a digital receiver for tv, I'm wondering...
After reading the forums regarding the TG special, I am intrigued by what the cars went through, and how likely a modern car would actually cope?
I just know mine would throw a wobbly at lots of what those cars achieved, which is maybe why all the challenges now involve them picking 10 year or...
I'm looking to update my current system (celestion and Marshall) and get a modern looking home cinema system.
I've had a quick nosey at what Bose has to offer but that's about it.
Can anyone recommend a decent system please
I'm just wondering what peoples thoughts are on manufacturers putting these small eco type engines in big cars . For example Ford have a 1.6 in the Mondeo & 1 Litre in a Focus, Vauxhall a 1.4 in the Insignia, Mercedes putting a 1.6 in a C-Class & probably the E-Class.
These cars are typically...
