    Hello all,

    Buying a W231 SL 500. Just wondering if there is any mechanical/electronic updates or recalls to that model year that I should make sure they were done (car registered June 2012). I did some online search but couldn't find any.

    Car is 31K miles with Full MB service history

    Thank you

    You'll probably need to ask Mercedes.

    Yep my friendly main dealer did that for me FOC. Took him 10 minutes?
    From some systems WIS ??, and my vehicle records He found one Comand Update, that he was not sure if it had been done .. he would have had to do a STar to confirm that.
    He said it works perfectly, I wouldnt bother, but next time its being Stared ask them to check that.
    They did when the battery had an issue, and sadly it had not been done.
    But hey its not mechanical .. and works fine so I will ask MBS if its worth doing when I go there next time.
