    Hello, it's me again. Long time no speak!

    Anyway, we've recently picked up a W209 320cdi Sport, and I have a couple of questions for the learned masses.

    1. The handbook says I have to go to a dealer to switch the bi-xenons over for driving on the continent (which is where it will spend most of its time), but I have a feeling there's a lever somewhere. Can somebody clarify?

    2. The removable emergency key seems to have two functions: the long key for unlocking and all, but the short end also looks a bit like a key. Is that just me?

    3. I've scoured the handbook for tyre pressures,and all it tells me is the space-saver needs to be at 61psi. Any ideas about the real wheels?

    Thanks all!

    Hello again mate

    Tyre pressures should be inside the filler cap.

    Bump, for all those that obviously didn't miss me, but may be able to help anyway ;)

    Are the pressures inside the filler cap on a sticker ?

    Welcome back doofus!

    Like H, the only steer I can offer is to look in the inside of your fuel filler flap.

    There is a thin metal lever by the side of where the bulb is fixed in. Push it up or down. It's the opposite for each side.

    The key is just one key.
