RE: Favorite/Most hated Feature on any Benz?

it makes no difference to me about tires, they are £20 each for me, they are low profile 215 (or225) 45 17's.

i have a friend who owns a tire company so i get them really really cheap or i wouldnt be spinning everywhere!!!

its only recently that iv been hammering the car as i havnt had it that long, 4 months now so im getting familliar with its capabillitys and handling.

i still havnt had a corner that its said "not today sunshine, were going straight on " ha ha

did have a scarry moment when i first got the car but that was on a roundabout and it stepped out on me without giving me any warning, i was gunning it though so it was my fault!!

oh yeah i dont have a cat on mine mate, so whats the bhp you have quoted in the book etc?

RE: Favorite/Most hated Feature on any Benz?

Hate: this is easy. Only 1 thing I hate about my E....There's only 1 fog light on the rear. Now I understand the logic for this..(why the hell do you need a fog light on the rear..) but I have been pulled over 3 times in the last 2 years by some yahoo cop that thinks I have an auxillary tail light out! Needless to say I do not turn my rear fog's on after I've been to a happy hour!

What I love. Where do I start! The speed. There were a few mods done to tune it up a bit and the handling for a big car is awesome! Especially with 19's with pilot sport AS 2's on it. Very solid with no rattles, shakes, shimies or outside noise at any speed. (other then the fact that I have low profile sport tires) and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the feeling of people being surprised when they pull up next to you thinking that rice burner is going to blow this big ole boat away...Not happening sport!

"The worst MB feature has to be the proliferation of unwashed foreigners purchasing previously owned MB's and not properly maintaining them" and or tarting them into some type of mobile bingo hall .

The best MB feature is the thor's hammer efect it has on the cars made by the great sea of unwashed when they stick their flying toasters in front of it .

RE: Favorite/Most hated Feature on any Benz?

If you look in your instructions, pull 1 stop for fog lights only, 2 stops for fog lights and rear fog warning light. Have you never noticed how annoying the fog warning light is when the car in front of you had his on? Your profile does not include your location. Here I see it all the time in city traffic where people have no clue their cars even have a extra rear warning light.

Maybe they should have timers like the rear-window defrosters have. An hour or so. Granted, it's possible to drive in fog for more than an hour, but at least this would prevent all those annoying lights you see..

Ack![xx(] That's another thing I hate about our ML. The fog light light on the dash. It's bright green and there's no way to dim it. The W163 folks say that the dealer can disable it so we're in luck.[:D]
