    "Interesting" news for European owners of recent Mercedes diesel cars!

    Hi, Looks like Mercedes are going to "do a VW" - to their European diesel cars - to fix the emissions! Software emissions fix for three million Mercedes diesels - BBC News Let's hope it doesn't damage the performance, MPG or reliability of the cars that get updated! Cheers Steve

    Tinted / darker glass on recent Mercedes?

    There are two tinted glass options I know about as current order options. A. Infrared-reflective, noise insulating glass all round B. Privacy glass (just the rear windows, right?) In real life... How much darker is B than A? How dark is A in real life? Just out of interest, can they both exist...

    Recent buying experiences

    Due to assisting 2 sons to buy cars over the last few weeks, and then one for myself, I've managed to max out my most pleasurable hobby quite well recently. However it wasn't always a pleasurable experience of course, and it's fair to say that Mercedes were squarely at the bottom of the pile...

    Recent niggles

    Is anyone having minor problems on the new E-Class? I've recently noticed a few issues with the temp displays whereby the drivers side internal temp display either seems to stay lit when the key is removed or does a kind of 'split screen' display where you can't read the numbers properly. Also...

    1991 W124 230E - Well sorted after much recent work.

    Here is my advert for my lovely Mercedes W124. Unfortunately, after nearly 5 years, I think the time may be right to sell as I’m not going to have much free time to use the car in 2014 and I have two other cars to occupy my time. It’s an excellent car that’s benefited from a lot of worthwhile...

    Do most recent Mercedes have flimsy Sun visors

    In my 09 w204 sport the sunvisors are made out of some kind of black polystyrene like material, is this in all the w204's or just the sport? I dont like them but no big deal. Are they also in other Mercedes? Thanks.
