RE: cds skipping on bumps
It's time to replace your CD changer, unfortunately [:(]. Since CD changer locates in the trunk (not sure what your model is but this is for R129), it goes bad very fast. MB tried to fix this problem by upgraded to fiber-optic but only helped a bit.
The symtom is, first it skips, then later it will pause for a while until it won't work anymore.
Unless you know how to open the CD changer and replace the unit that controls the "shock", it's time to replace your CD.
