Mercedes is going back to real pedals and real wires. Most of the Woohoo crap is out the door.

COMAND causes relatively little bother. It is simply the fact that most technicians have no idea how to pin-point the issues that arise. For a long time I have suspected the use of very long GPS cables and shoddy amplifiers on the rear glass as being the bulk cause. Apart from the excessive current draw which MY01 repaired.

I remember once that my car drove past the control house of a bridge when the bridge motor was partially engaged after it came back down again. The brakes, accelerator, radio, dashboard all engaged randomly with noise and random events.

So if anything the car suffers from RF screening problems and IMHO that is where the FM amplifier blew, which took me another 8 months to get replaced because MB mechanics were too lazy to remove the rear windscreen.

From the dealers I've spoken to its cars fitted with command and telephone that experience the most issues with the new E class.

I think the New "MOST" fibre optic system has something to do with that as well, audio gateways being replaced for fun apparantly .
