Hi everyone, Having had various Mercedes C and E class cars for years I had a five year dalliance with another make of car. That was good and latterly turned bad so last week I have returned to what I know and love and got a used 63 reg E220 CDI, W212 facelift I believe it's also know as. I must say I am very impressed and pleased with it so far, even better than I remember from my Mercs from years ago. There are one or two new things I am having to get used to, e.g. the cruise control stalk now being below the indicator/wiper stalk and the auto shift now being a stalk instead of the lever in the centre console. Another thing I'd appreciate if someone could confirm is regarding the steering lock, or lack thereof. On my other Mercs when I put the key in the lock I could hear the steering lock mechanism disengaging and engaging when the key is removed. Now with this car there is no sound at all when the key is inserted or removed. Is this correct and how it is supposed to be now? Otherwise the key works perfectly, turns, switches everything on and starts the car. Thanks for any info!
