    Hi, just bought myself a little treat and wondered if there are any things i should know about the vehicle to keep it in top shape and enhance it in any way.

    Thanks

    welcome! :)

    sounds nice!

    i have a 211 (facelift) E280CDI and love it!

    what year is your car?

    does it have a 'valeo' make radiator? they are blamed for glycol contamination in the oil...

    did you get it approved used from mercedes? did it come with a warranty? full service history?

    when was the ATF last changed? (need MB or a specialist for this... required every 37,000 miles to keep the 7G gearbox running sweet)

    other than that; allow turbo to warm up/ cool down properly

    &

    ENJOY!

    Hi Tim,

    Welcome to a great forum. What year is your vehicle? I bought the same model just a few months ago and very pleased with it so far. Check if it has a Valeo radiator fitted, if it has, have it replaced with a Behr radiator straight away. Have the auto fluid changed too if your mileage is over 70K. These were the main things I had checked upon buying me vehicle.

    You can contact MB HQ, UK in Milton Keynes to see if any recall work was done on the car to rectify early electrical problems.

    Hope this helps and hope you enjoy your new car.

    Rob

    Hello & welcome to the forum Tim :thumb:

    I had an 2005 W211 E270 CDi Avantgarde for a year (which is a long time for me) and had no problems whatsoever with it.

    The engine is well renowned for doing 'star-ship miles', in fact it's the same as the bigger engined Sprinter.

    Post up a few more details, mileage/year etc, and I'm sure we can advise you a bit better. :thumb:

    Thanks all for the welcome. Mine is a 05 avantgarde done 67k. I'll check out the rad, recalls and auto box fluid. All the best.
