Termite says hello! '04 ML500 content.
I'm an enthusiast of many kinds, but mostly collect VW and Porsche. To date, I have in my collection...
77 Chevy Malibu
84 VW Rabbit GTI (332K miles)
84 VW Rabbit Cabby (building a TSI setup for it)
88 VW Scirocco 16V
85 Porsche 944 N/A
The little lady has an 04 ML500, and that's what brings me here. The euro forums I frequent don't have much of a Benz following, so some of the guys pointed me here. Teach me oh mighty Benz heads!
My girlfriend is looking for simple things to start. You know, the usual "mods" that people start with. First, she would like her car "to growl when I turn the key". Her words. Man oh man, is it just me or do systems not exist for these things? Guess it's off to just piece together some mufflers and resonators and have them welded in.
Her poor ML has a few other quirks and problems as well, but I'll dig through the posts here first to see if I find the answers. Small things like cruise not working and ESP not staying off. It's off because the dealer she bought it from has two different size tires on it. One is 2" taller than the rest. Soooo not good for that rear diff. It keeps engaging the ESP and yanking the wheel or slowing us down while driving. Until the news tires we ordered come in, we just turn ESP off, but it keeps activating now and then still.
