  1. mirror behaviors after key replacement

    W211 E-Class
    Everybody I have an issue with my side view mirrors after having one of my keys replaced on an 05 320...and its driving me crazy. I had the black plastic fob replaced to the new chrome fob. Not my choice as MB no longer carry the old one anymore. Anyhow the side mirrors used to remember their...
  2. E320 CDI Opinion Needed

    W211 E-Class
    I'd go lower miles. Having a car that came with NAV and the AMG rims here are my thoughts. The NAV system is needlessly expensive to keep updated. Heck any smartphone is much better and cheaper. As well after certain updates you can no longer input a NAV destination while moving. Something...
  3. Quality Bluetooth hands-free on w211

    W211 E-Class
    I have an itronic. What you will find is most of these, Tookie, iTronic, and there are a few others, all use the same basic components. (inside the box they are almost identical) It took awhile for mine to come because cartronics only procures them in volume shipments. But, once you get it...
  4. Bluetooth staying on when car is off??

    W211 E-Class
    The 211 has two batteries. One for the ignition and another for accessories. So the fact that the COMAND system remains in a semi-active state will not run down the battery responsible for providing power to the ignition. The bluetooth modules AFAIK reside on a constant 12V circuit. I use an...
  5. Things you ask why did they do this on the E Class (Opposite of hidden Gems)

    W211 E-Class
    I had to laugh about getting wet when washing the windscreen on the motorway. That drives me crazy too. Not well sorted that. Anyhow...i have one to add to the list. 2005 model anyhow. What is with that joke of a cup holder? You have this completely over-engineered robocop arm looking...
  6. Vibration from right rear

    W211 E-Class
    Sorry, been a few weeks since I've been on the site. The $590 you were quoted is a good price. My local indy was $374 for parts and needed 3.2 hours labor for another $315. So that would have come to $689.73 before tax. I live in MD so mileage will vary on pricing obviously.
  7. Looking to buy need advice

    W211 E-Class
    I purchased my 2005 used, with 46k miles on it, in the spring of 2008. It was not a CPO car. The only thing still under warranty in this state is the brake system up to 100,000 miles, which expired 5,000 miles ago. I've had 3 repairs of what I would consider large but not outside of normal...
  8. CDI owners enjoying the cold northeast weather?

    W211 E-Class
    Another DC example I live up in Annapolis and my car tends to be my office. We've only had a couple really bone chilling stretches of weather this winter. Certainly this winter has been quite a lot less cold than last winter. I'm about 32mpg on a typical commute this winter. Come summer...
  9. Vibration from right rear

    W211 E-Class
    I've recently started having a curious problem with my 2005 CDI. Only when the car is cold, it will experience a vibration, almost a groan, from the right rear of the vehicle. This only happens when turning left, under acceleration, going up hill. Once the car is warm all is fine. This doest...
  10. New Owner, looking for some tips on Bluetooth and Nav

    W211 E-Class
    cartronic For reasons of having stuff built in, and having good call quality, I researched quite a few options. I wound up with an iTronic device from cartronics. The Comand system sees the device as the merc phone unit and you also have the other advantage of streaming your tunes to the head...
  11. 2006 E320 CDI city mileage question

    W211 E-Class
    The milage variances of these cars is radical to say the least. Over the past 7800 miles I've delivered 31mpg overall. I regularly commute in the Washington DC Beltway/parking lot. Things that will affect your milage are hard acceleration, stop/go traffic, and short trips. On weekends, when...
  12. E320 CDI Who has the most mileage?

    W251 R-Class
    Chiming in for historical sake 2005 320 CDI -- 92,334 miles as of this post. Parts replaced this afternoon: Batteries this afternoon (they were original mfg date of 2003, replaced preventatively) Engine Drive Belt (Amazingly, also original) Major Parts replaced since ownership: EGR Valve...
  13. Questions on the diesels, need input

    W211 E-Class
    17" or 18" tire/wheel packages on the CDI's are not so uncommon. In fact I got mine with the AMG combo. I roll on E55 wheel/tire setup which are 18" with staggared width and tire wall size. While the 16" does offer lower rolling resistance you can make up for that using the Michelin Pilot...
  14. Questions on the diesels, need input

    W211 E-Class
    I purchased a 2005 E320 CDI in the use a couple years ago. It had 40k on it when I bought it. I just flipped 90k this morning. They are hard to find, in the US at least, and generally will carry a premium price over the gassers. I went with the older engine for the simple reason they are...
  15. #2 Glow plug failure

    W211 E-Class
    I just got bit by this and it will be the last time my car ever sees the inside of a mercedes dealership service center. I had Plug 1 go on mine causing the check engine light to go on. I didn't have time to consult this site before hand. Paranoid extended driving would incur engine damage I...
  16. New owner of E320 CDI... and some questions!

    W211 E-Class
    I don't know about anything to tell you "exactly how much fuel you have" unless you are talking about a range feature that displays miles/kilometers until empty. One of the menu's will start to show mpg/equiv. If you cycle through you'll find two mpg/eqiv and then finally range. The first...
  17. "REST" AC button

    W211 E-Class
    I love that feature. Nothing beats knowing your car will maintain its climate while I skip out while doing errands.
  18. Newbie Questions concerning E320 CDI

    W211 E-Class
    owner experience I've owned my 2005 E320 CDI for a year now. it is hands down the best car I've ever owned. I bought mine second hand from a man who was a mechanic. This was his wife's car. I'll usually get between 30-32 mpg driving to work in the DC area with 50/50 freeway/traffic driving...

    Audio & Telematics Forum
    current software update disk information COMAND-APS FAQ (Current Software Update Disks and Special Software Update Disks) scroll about half way down, that will tell you the version you likely have and then if a service CD is required...and from what you've stated you'll need one. Then to...

    Audio & Telematics Forum
    I was looking through an ipod forum tonight and came across this simple yet effective solution for dealing with the use of an FM Transmitter. Those of us who have used them, and drive a lot, are familiar with how the channels from city to city can impact your experience with one of these...
