I'm new to the forum and looking to buy my first MB – a petrol CLS350, ideally a facelift model.
Budget dictates that it will probably not be any newer than 2008, so what should I look for (good/bad)?
There don't seem to be that many around, so I realise I can't be too choosy - however, any...
My CLS started to have issues starting when warm so after searching I went with the most common fault and replaced the CPS. Car started after this but the next day the car won't start at all. (Cranks but no start). So I was going to move on and try replacing the fuel pump relay but when I...
Hi all ,
I am new to the forum.
First thing is first , little background. I had CLK 270cdi , which I sold due to London ULEZ. Then bought another brand which turned to be not reliable . Now I am at a point where I am about to go back to beloved MB . Within my budget I am split between buying...
I'm looking at getting a w219 CLS. I've got 2 in mind at the moment. A 350cdi grand edition or a 2005 500AMG.
Both are similar mileage but the 500 has air suspension and a V8 and is £2500 cheaper than the 350 which is obviously newer and the facelift model.
Is the 350 worth an extra £2500 or...
I am in thoughts of selling my 2006 CLS 500 due to a recent house purchase and with all the expenses in renovation.
few details for this lovely car:
bulletproof M113 V8
registered in January 2006 so it has cheaper tax £320 (and not £580 from mid 2006 onwards).
tellurium silver which is a...
I think I may be fishing in a dead river!
I’ve finally decided what I’d like to buy once my flat has sold but I’m wondering if I’ve overreached
I’d like a 2015 on model (facelift?)but I would really like the following;
Premium Plus (If that’s an option)
Sunroof (or Pano if...
It’s definitely the CLS Shooting Brake I want. However, I’ve also decided that used car prices are going to fall due to the lockdown etc., so in the meantime I’ll be doing all the research I can.
I’m also in the process of selling an apartment so the profit from that will ease the paying for...
Looking for some understanding of how the park assist system starts to work. I have noticed it being extremely erratic in my case: sometimes after driving for a bit, and upon slowing down, the park assist option pops-up and the car parks itself perfectly. However, sometimes the park...
Hi guys recently bought a faulty w219 that wouldnt start. Diagnosed it as the crank sensor, popped the new one in and it fired straight up.
The car hadnt been driven for months before I bought it, todays the first day i got chance to take it on a quick test drive.
After the first couple of...
My question is which Merceds CLS models have the ambient lighting in them or is it an extra option in all of the models. For example the CLS220 2014 is it an option or not even an option as I might get that car but without ambient lighting I won't get it.
I turned on my Mercedes this morning and noticed that a message appeared on the driver dashboard: "Check front left daytime running light". So I got out of the car, had a look and saw saw that only the right side was on.
Does anyone know how I can replace the light myself (preferably...
I have a 2009 CLS with OE HID. I'd like to change the D2S bulbs. I've taken a look, got the large cap off, but haven't worked out how it's supposed to come out.
Any one offer any hints ? Any online guides ? I've looked at the usual places etc.
Do the headlight housing need to be removed ?
I had a SAAB 9-5 Aero estate for 12 years, great car to drive, incredible performance in its manual guise, but age took its toll, after almost 200,000 miles it was time for a change, but what will fit the bill? No more SAAB, so I'll "upgrade" I hope that is the correct term without insulting...
The other day I was traveling along a motorway when I realised I had no turbo power. I had to reduce speed to pass a toll plaza and it took ages to get back up to speed gearing up at low revs, iif I accelerate it would not kick down and engine didn't rev, but once up to speed it was ok...
Just wanted to ask you for your experience and opinion about owning CLS W219.
I own 320CDi 2006 75k millage for last 3 years and are at the point when I find myself with two options. First make a long term commitment and stay with a car (as i love the look and can forgive...
