  1. Buying advise

    W251 R-Class
    I hear you about the budget for looking at the '06s. Last year I was also looking for '06s and found out that did not save me much, so I ended up with an '07. You just have to work hard and find aggressive dealer(s) in your areas and/or nearby to give you their best price. If you dont order a...
  2. chrome trim for fog lights on a GL

    X164 GL-Class
    Here you go: Crome hood fins and fog light trim - MBWorld.org Forums A long threat, but scroll down to about Post # 46 . . . a member there posted complete DIY, parts numbers, and step-by-step pics. It's a bit involved by changing out the black/round housings for the chrome/oval housings and bulbs.
  3. For those that have the rough 2-1 downshift in "S" mode

    W251 R-Class
    How do you know if you have a new one? All '06s and '07's have the old valve, by default, unless been replaced? Mind sharing more info on your researching. Thanks.
  4. 2007 R320 CDI lemon

    W251 R-Class
    That's GREAT. Your experience at least comes with a good ending, for now at least. Wish the '08 works out better for you. Second time around, at least you know what options to get/equip the car with. P2 and HID Light Packages are the must haves, imo.
  5. For those that have the rough 2-1 downshift in "S" mode

    W251 R-Class
    Difference between "jerky upshift" vs "rough downshift"? Chucelli - Not yet but I will when I bring my car in for the Service A at 10,000 mile (in a month to two). I'll post afterward. Chucelli / or Anyone - What have you experienced with the "rough downshift to 1"? Does it happen all the...
  6. For those that have the rough 2-1 downshift in "S" mode

    W251 R-Class
    B-O-R, Thanks for sharing the info. When did you have this done? Can you provide more info on the newly released "valve body"? Is this to cure the "downshit" feel of engine braking coming to a stop? I have a couple of software upgrades done and they cured the "jerking" for "upshifting" from...
  7. R320 tdi gas milage

    W251 R-Class
    R320 mileage numbers I've got an '07 R320, since Mar 07, over 10 months, odometer now has just over 8K miles. Here is a snapshot of mileage history on my car: New - 4K miles: mix driving, avg 35 mph (60% city, 40 hwy) ~ 22 mpg (comp avg / hand cals matched) hwy driving, avg 65-70 mph ~ 26...

    W251 R-Class
    +1 Real Great Deal, IMO. All MBs (most models) can be bought at invoice any time, or even below when incentives or promotions are offered. ML class, GL 450, and R350 have been bought at 10 - 12% from MSRP throughout the '07 from posters on this forum or others. Edmunds MB forums have more...

    W251 R-Class
    About 2WD vs. 4WD. Only 4WD models offered in '06 and '07 model years. MY '08 is the first that 2WD models are offered in the RClass, MB wants to bring base model costs to a minimum and sell the base 2WD models to warmer locals such as Fl, TX, southern CA, etc. About harsh or rough...

    Congratulations !!! Magician - You've bought a GOOD Car and gotten a GREAT Deal. GOOD Car because it's very hard to find an MY '07 with P2, especially with the HID Lighting Package; you'll love the BU camera, seats memory, folding mirrors, and the 3-zone AC controller. Silver and Mac is a...
  11. a question about R class Headrest dvd system.

    W251 R-Class
    Glad to be of help. If you are like me, family with kids who enjoy watching movies in the car then having/installing the RSE in your R is well worthed. Imagine seating in those 2nd row captain chairs watching the headrest dvd monitors in front of you . . . is like first class in an airplane...
  12. MB Factory DVD Mods

    W251 R-Class
    THANKs Wow, this is very thorough instructions. I'll try and let you know in a few days. This hopefully will help myself as well as others who havent figured this out. Many thanks. :thumbsup:
  13. MB Factory DVD Mods

    W251 R-Class
    DVD settings estorilblue - Glad you figured out the setting(s) for recording/playing back-up DVD disks on your car. I've been using DVD+R and Nero as burning software but no luck with various different settings. You use the same software? The Booktype "DVD-ROM" that you mentioned is it...
  14. a question about R class Headrest dvd system.

    W251 R-Class
    jameslu - To my best knowledge, '06 R Classes (R350, R500) do not have the SRS headrests. Only since '07 the SRS head restraints were introduced for all R classes. Your owner's manual should confirm whether your R500 is equipped with SRS headrests or not. All after-market DVD RSE come with...
  15. Just Got Mine

    W251 R-Class
    Congratulations dcRklasse - Welcome to the Forum and Congratulations on your new R350. :) :thumbsup: Sounds like you got an '08 R350 with P2 . . . lots of goodies on options. What else you got on the car? RSE, Xenon lights? 6 or 7 Seats? Sand Beige is a new color on '08 models for R, GL, C...
  16. My 07 R 320 CDI *pics inside*

    W251 R-Class
    dcRklasse - Agreed on White as one of the better colors for R class. If I didnt buy one last year, I too would have considered the new Sand Beige color. Great choice!
  17. Aftermarket DVD/Camera interface

    W251 R-Class
    $4,000K !!! Wow, I know it is pricey but this much . . . then one should trade his/her in for another with factory equipped. Rob - $4,000K. What does this include? BU camera, DVD, Parktronic, IPod . . .
  18. Decisions! More advice on used R's - which one?!

    W251 R-Class
    Excellent and Congrats :owned: :thumbsup: Most car insurance includes windshield replacement under the comprehensive coverage. Mine does, with a $250 deductible and no premium increase if claimed. So for $399 that's like 2 windshield replacements in 5 years, that's not too likely unless you...

  20. R550 at SEMA

    W251 R-Class
    Nice and Unique Very nice, Thank you! :bowdown: R550? or R500? I see that you got a big screen as well as two smaller ones on the side. I see the two 3rd row seats are still there. But the two 2nd row captain chairs were taken out? Anyway, well done and thanks for the pics/links. :thumbsup:
