2011 S430 with 170K miles

Hi, my name is Edwin,

I love to fix things. I find great accomplishment and joy in solving problems by leveraging what I read on the forums and taking it a step further if needed.

The S430 I just bought this week has a number of little issues to resolve and I slowly but surely am solving them. Most of them with the help of this forum.

I have already one item I'd like to contribute and that is step-by-step with pictures on how to fix the side-view mirror LED indicators, without purchasing any replacement parts. I also have a short description on how to take out the flip-up cup holder to remove coins and other stuff that makes it into that space underneath the cupholders. I noticed a number of posts that don't show an answer, and I found out that the solution is quite simple. I will respond to the two open threads.

I have a background in electronics and software, I don't shy away from using the soldering station. I am not good with Engines and choose to stay away from that area and pay someone else to do that (no I don't change oil).

Thanks for this great forum and I hope to contribute as well as leverage this forum.
