    Hi. Anyone know the ampage of the power to the centre console phone cradle in a w204? I want to use it to drive a power socket fitted into the rear blanking plate. A lot cheaper than 60 or 70 quid for the whole ashtray unit that I would never use.

    Vito alloy rating

    Would alloys with a load rating of 690kg be ok on a vito 109 compact ? Company I contacted on eBay say they are fine, a lot of searching seems to suggest otherwise ? It's all a bit confusing

    Looking to fit some 18" alloys to my vito. I know I need to be careful on the load rating of the wheels I buy, going on what I believe is right (half the axle weight on my VIN plate) I need 730kg. I've found a number of wheels and they're all 690kg. I'm guessing the extra 40 kg will make the...
