  1. Time for some overdue mtc on my 05 SL55

    R230 SL-Class
    All, I don't drive my SL55 much, I bought it in 2014 with 63000 miles and I've yet to hit 68000 miles in it after more than 5 years. I took it out last night for a quick blast before I do the annual inspection. It might have been the second time I drove it this year and I noticed a couple of...
  2. 05 S55 rear ended, followed by massive ABC leak at the pump pulsation dampner

    W220 S-Class
    So the kid who does a bit of side work for me was taking my 05 S55 to my hobby shop so that he could replace the noisy ball joint when this happened. Driver must have been staring at her lap checking facebook messages when she rear ended him while stationary. He said he saw her coming but had...
  3. What happened to the lifetime?

    Off-Topic
    I've not logged in much since the upgrade but just noticed that I'm no longer a 'lifetime premium member' and am now just a 'premium member'. Was it for the lifetime of the old bulletin board or did something else happen?
  4. Does anyone know what walmart's battery return policy is?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    You'll be pleased to know that the replacement battery is still in the car to this day. No idea if it starts though because i haven't touched it in a year :)

  6. ‘06 S65 ABC

    W220 S-Class
    The burst hose is usually caused by the dampener failing (the small accumulator) which causes spikes in the pressure. Stay on top of that one and you should be in good shape.
  7. Post a picture of your SL thread

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    Love it. Welcome!
  8. STAR lowering help

    W220 S-Class
    Careful, if you use the star to adjust height, you could wipe your abc level settings which is not a fun issue to deal with (ask me how I know).
  9. 05 S55 parking brake

    W220 S-Class
    All, the parking brake on my S55 stopped working after I got it back from some body repairs. The handle came off in my hand and the foot pedal does not ratchet to apply the brake. The cable is there but it seems like it's too long. Any thoughts as to what the issue is? I checked in the footwell...
  10. Want a good Chinesium fake laugh !!!!!!!!!!

    W220 S-Class
    This is why it's good to link your credit card to paypal.
  11. Is there a DIY way to do level calibration?

    W220 S-Class
    So quick update on this. It looks like when I had the suspension rebuilt , the mechanic moved the level sensor out of position so it was pretty much cocked upside down. After undoing the bolt in the inner fender, we were able to move the sensor back into position and the car is now sitting...
  12. Idle gear on M273

    R230 SL-Class
    So my brother who lives in Winchester England has been talking to me for a few weeks about buying an R230 Mercedes. He's always liked my SL55 and would like to get one for himself. I agreed to help him look for one while I was here in the UK (which I am now). My initial thoughts was to find an...
  13. Modern EFI in the old Benz

    Vintage Mercedes-Benz
    If you're getting 18MPG, you're doing great. I would to struggle to get 14MPG out of any of my 4.5's.
  14. Is there a DIY way to do level calibration?

    W220 S-Class
    Will this work? https://www.amazon.com/Calculated-Industries-7434-AccuMASTER-Inclinometer/dp/B0148M7P4O/ref=sr_1_15?keywords=angle+finder&qid=1553783177&s=gateway&sr=8-15 This is kind of BS, if there are level sensors, they should be able to give you a reading to work from.
  15. SDS Why Do I Need It & Why Can't I Use A Cheaper Machine ?? ............

    W220 S-Class
    ok after some serious fiddling with the com ports on both the host and the virtual machine, I was able to get the system to connect. I'm still having issues with the level calibration but that's another topic
  16. Is there a DIY way to do level calibration?

    W220 S-Class
    All, my car is continuously leaning to the left (05 S55), so much so that tight turns are causing the front fender to bow out. I tried to adjust the height going into both the SDS and using my AUTEL to where I thought that the car is level. The system then asks me to enter a range (4.8-5.5...
  17. SDS Why Do I Need It & Why Can't I Use A Cheaper Machine ?? ............

    W220 S-Class
    Quick update. I was able to get the key generated and start the simulator. Now I need to connect my SDS up and get it working. It uses a USB to RS232 cable that I believe needs to map to com 2 on the VM machine. I'll try to get it going and see what happens.
  18. SDS Why Do I Need It & Why Can't I Use A Cheaper Machine ?? ............

    W220 S-Class
    Dave, Thanks, I got the external drive to boot up and was able to copy the VM to another drive so now I have a couple of backups. I'm still trying to figure how this setup works and whether a new key is required for a VM instance. This is why I'm not a huge fan of this setup. It's too finicky...
  19. SDS Why Do I Need It & Why Can't I Use A Cheaper Machine ?? ............

    W220 S-Class
    I was going to break out my SDS and see if I could get some more info on the issue with my ABC leaning to one side. I have the type that runs within a virtual machine so that I could use it on any PC. Unfortunately, it appears that the hard drive failed and none of my PC's are recognizing it...
