    Hi

    My brother has a 2003 E200 Kompressor Elegance and does not like the crashing ride. It is fitted with 225/65/16 and the dealer has even swapped wheels with another car to eliminate the tyres being the problem. I checked out the datacard and it is fitted with Option 482 Springs for higher ground clearance. Has anyone else this option fitted and does it make the ride rough and harsh.

    He loves the car otherwise and would be reluctant to change in this market but might be forced to if he can't get it resolved.
    Any ideas??

    Thanks,

    If those springs are also the same as the 'heavy duty' springs they will be 'well ard'.
    If he wants a supple ride fit standard springs.
