Hey All.

I own an 03 CLK 55 AMG CONVERTABLE. About on average every 4 weeks it asks me to top it up with a litre of oil. Is this Normal???

Also i have Xenon Headlights which cant be ajusted from inside the vehicle however i fine they are set too low. Its meant to ajust automatically but this dont seem to happen. Can anyone help out with why?

Cheers Lads

Check for the leaks man.. look on the ground where your car is parked or put some cardboard under the engine compartment and see if u get any oil spots on it..

How many miles do you drive during those 4 weeks. The AMG engine does consume oil and having to add oil is not uncommon. I have seen sl65's and s65's that go through a qt. every 3k miles. But common leaks on those are the VC covers where the small covers are sealed on top, and the rear main those are good places to look.
