MBNA Sales Execs "forced" Daimler engineers to add cup holders to the later W140s, as they claimed this was one of the big reasons for lost sales to the Lexus LS in the US market...oh, that and a nearly $35K price difference.I posted this on the other Mercedes forum (as a general radio question) with no response.
As many of you may know, I have recently purchased my first 90s Mercedes (after all of my previous ones being 80s models) and this latest one has me with a question about the radio.
When I turn on the radio (original) in my '93 (W140), it will occasionally make a "MMMM, MMMM" sound, almost like a cell phone that is on vibrate will sound. Is this normal or is my radio going out/have an issue? I know my antenna is broken and will not go to the top, so dont know if its trying to tune in a station or what? It will tune in several stations and even on one that is getting good reception, it will occasionally make that sound.
I have an owners manual, but I havent looked through it yet. I looked in an online manual, but it dont even mention the radio.
Also, where are the cupholders in my '93 W140? I thought in the console, but I cant gain access to any?
Thanks in advance!
DBAG engineers still INSIST the driver should not be distracted by comsuming beverages while operating a motor vehicle. Remember, it takes over a year to get your driver's license in Germany...and one 'at-fault' accident to lose it!
