  1. Special Order Items for your E Class

    W212 E-Class
    Took my car in for service today and stopped by to speak with the Internet Manager on duty and here is what I found out regarding special order items not listed on MBUSA's website: 1) Rear Manual Side Sunshades (This does exists for US folks) 2) Sun Protection Package (I think includes above...
  2. Good Internet Manager to Deal with in SoCal

    W212 E-Class
    A buddy of mine is looking to get an E coupe. Any advice on a good Internet Sales Manager he can deal with. Can't seem to locate the guy I bought from over 2 years ago so I ask if any of you have a good recent experience here in SoCal.
  3. MB Baby Seat - Still Available?

    W212 E-Class
    Not sure the age of your child but MB makes 3 version for the corresponding age group. The Duo Plus is the convertible seat age 1-4 I believe. This is the most expensive one since it has Baby Smart Technology. It has a chip that will automatically turn off the front passenger airbag should...
  4. 2012 Acoustic Feedback a honk or a chirp?

    W212 E-Class
    My 11' E350 has the annoying honk as the acoustic feedback for locking and unlocking doors so I turned it off since day one. The other day, I went into settings for the first time in a long long time to adjust the ambient lighting brightness and came across the feedback so lead me to ask if MB...
  5. W212 Lacking that "Wow" Factor

    W212 E-Class
    Here in the U.S., these options are not available. Which leads me to my other point, MBUSA doesn't even offer much options for the E. I even read somewhere on the MBWorld forum that MBUSA doesn't even offer a leather dash when you order the Designo Magno interior. That sucks!
  6. W212 Lacking that "Wow" Factor

    W212 E-Class
    Back in 2010, our BMW E60 535i Sport was bought back by BMW and we needed a quick replacement car. We ended up with the 11' E350. It was somewhat a hasty decision given the situation. At the time, I was afraid to get the BMW F10 as it was launch year with a new N55 engine. Fast forward to...
  7. Mystery Instrument Cluster Display Icon

    W212 E-Class
    This "P" icon you see is normal. I noticed this icon as well but it only shows up at speeds under 15 mph. Usually pops up when I'm slowing down for a stop sign or traffic light. It stays on when I accelerate and disappears when I get to 15 mph. This is the Parktronic aka "Parking...
  8. Dent Removal Recommendation Los Angeles Area

    W212 E-Class
    Got a small ding on the front passenger door not bad but just bugs me. No paint damage. I heard of Dent Wizard when I googled this forum but they were older posts so not sure how these guys are nowadays. For such a small ding, do they need to remove the inner door panels to fix it? I don't...
  9. 2010 E350 Nav Update Needed

    W212 E-Class
    W212's all have hard drive based navigation so not sure if there is a disc update for it. The company is NAVTEQ, they provide OEM disc updates for Mercedes, BMW etc. Had their discs with previous Mercedes and BMW. I always thought with hard drive based units, the dealer will update the map...
  10. OEM Mercedes Accessory - Rear Entertainment System

    W212 E-Class
    Anyone have the rear entertainment system from Mercedes, not the factory installed ones but the ones under their OEM accessory that attached to the back of the front headrest. They come in pairs for $1900. If anyone has them, my questions: 1) Does the audio play through the vehicle's...
  11. Driver Assistance Package available in 2010 E350 Sedan?

    W212 E-Class
    As far as I know, only Mercedes' Pre-safe braking system (Part of the Driver's Assistance Package) actually stops the car for you if a car stops abruptly in front of you. This is part of the vehicle function as long as Distronic is enabled. Other manufactures have it built only in the cruise...
  12. Removing rear seat headrest

    W212 E-Class
    I asked the same question a few months ago here on this forum and got no replies. I guess we're the only two W212 owners that need to remove the rear headrest. I needed it so it will give our child seat a better fit. Anyhow, I also don't have the rear folding seat option and can't pull the...
  13. Why is the E class offered as a 2 door?

    W212 E-Class
    That is true, the E coupe is really just an updated version of the CLK which is based on the C platform. The E coupe is a W207 chassis. The last E coupe was on the W124.
  14. E550 4matic vs BMW X6

    W212 E-Class
    I'm a straight shooter and I'll be blunt. I don't like the X6 when it first came out and my opinion still stands today even when I see one in the street. I would much rather look at the X5 with the M Sport Package. I believe the X5 gives you a bit more rear cargo space as well. Just my $0.02.
  15. Paint Underneath the Rear Taillight

    W212 E-Class
    I read about the stuff done at the VPC to repair minor shipping damages, I think under 3-5% of damage. Otherwise VPC needs to report it to the dealer and dealer to the customer. Usually there would be a delay in delivery. I thought typical damages would be to bumpers and side mouldings which...
  16. Paint Underneath the Rear Taillight

    W212 E-Class
    Had our E350 for about 9 months and recently noticed this paint flaw the other week after I washed the vehicle. It's the small gap area under the taillight and I noticed there is a flaw in the paint like rough edges that were not smoothed out. It's funny we never noticed this the first 8...
  17. Anyone Notice This?

    W212 E-Class
    I stuck my hand inside the right side hinge and noticed the foam as well but it was set further inside the spring hinge. So the left one is out of place so I pushed it in more. It is an "insulation foam" for the spring hinge. EPC part# is A2046821704. Weird they would put this insulation...
  18. Anyone Notice This?

    W212 E-Class
    I noticed some small foam debris inside our trunk and each time I clean it up, it reappears a little later. I did some probing and found that under the left swing arm on the trunk there is this foam material that sits on the spring hinge and each time the trunk is opened and closed, the spring...
  19. w212 rear camera

    W212 E-Class
    Don't feel left out. We here in the States don't get power folding mirrors, not even an option whatsoever.
  20. A very "Happy" day for us (this time!!)

    W212 E-Class
    I'm glad it all worked out for you. If I recall from your photos of the wreckage, there was frame damage and insurance companies will dump the vehicle to avoid $$$ and future liabilities if they were to restore it back to MB safety specs. Anyhow, good to hear you're getting a new Benz.
