    Panaromic Sunroof Issues

    Hi fellow MBOs, I'm a 'newbie' here. Firstly let me say that I love my C250 ... I've done over 70k miles in a 5yo car, driving some long distance routes to Europe. It just eats the miles, made much easier with the Distronic Plus cruise control. Yesterday my Panoramic Sunroof jammed and I have...

    CLS Suspension Failure

    For what its worth I spotted a CLS on the hard-shoulder of the M6 today with a n/s front wheel at 30deg (ish) to vertical apparently jammed in the front wing. I think it was a 55 plate reg. It looked like he had managed to get it to the side safely, but it could have been a real nasty one...
