    Hello all,

    I was wondering if someone has either done it or knows if it can be done. I have a 61 plate 2012MY E350 CDI with NTG4.5. It has the brown/black colour scheme, which I do not mind, but would prefer the newer one black/grey/red. I know these are two different versions in terms of GEN1 and GEN2, but is there a firmware update which may update the scheme for mine, or is it what it is and cannot be changed?
    Any advice is appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Hi
    I am quite certain it cannot be changed.

    I thought this would be the case. No loss was just wondering if it is something I can change.

    Thanks for your help.

    Actually, it may be possible. The GEN1 and GEN2 software was merged into one release and a configuration item (not settable from engineering mode) was added to change it. So, it may be possible to do a firmware update and then tweak things ..

    Hello Richard,

    Yes i read somewhere that the firmware was combined, but my tweaking days are gone. Cannot be bothered with that on a car with a warranty etc. It was a simple option in the engineering menu when on the latest firmware I would have gone for it.
    Otherwise I am happy as it is till it's time to upgrade the car in a few years time.
