    Hi all, just another n00b looking to do the same as the rest of you, by the fact your here as well prior to my journey starting in the world of Merc's with my 1st one, namely a CLK320, but I am struggling with it's year the log book says 2002, it was sold as a 2003, but it says first registered in 2004, as best I can see it was imported from Ireland at some early point in time, which has no doubt caused these puzzles, but I will save this until tomorrow.

    Just got myself my 1st ever Merc, and have a serious amount of questions, as I am struggling to set the flaming clock, let alone anything else, this is vastly down to no books with the car (only the service book), so I need to source manuals\instructions on the cars features, so I can get it set up how I need, then once I get to understand the car more, I can then ask the questions that I still need help with, so please bare with me, I will try and get the right sections to post in, but apology's if I get any in the wrong place.

    Only if that comes with chips lol.

    But no it is legit, I am just trying to make sense of it all, to enable me to figure out if it's a 208 or a 209, as it crosses both time lines depending what you take as most accurate, which is due to being an import from Ireland when it was quite early on I think as the log book says 02/02/2004 on both registered, and registered UK, but under special notes it comments about manufactured 2003, but I will get hold of Mercedes to let me know what version it is for sure, Thanks guy's.

    When I bought my car the owners manual was missing, I downloaded the PDF version and also got one off eBay for £20 for completeness.

    Yes a downloaded version was the immediate option I was looking for, then if I needed more I would get physical manuals in time as needed, just a case of finding that, along with getting the right version, so will be searching for that soon, Thanks for the reply.

    On the vehicle registration document or at the number displayed on the top of the dashboard[ passenger side ] look at the Vin number It will start WDB 208-------- or WDB 209 -------- depending on which model you have
