    Parking Brake won't release - cold weather

    W216, CL500 Amplifier failure

    Hi All, Looking to purchase a 2008 W216 CL500, however the radio amp is cooked and needs replacement. £800 is the replacement cost, so obviously scouting for alternatives other than sendin the unit away for repair.

    S203 Android head unit upgrade

I fitted an Erisin ES7863GB which is a current Android v8.0 unit with Octacore processor (PX5), 4Gb RAM and 32Gb rom. I was very straight forward to fit using the supplied cables and so far everything appears to be...

    Mercs no good in winter?

    I know this has been discussed here, with some negative comments. We are just back from a spell in the Arctic circle, where MB seems a popular choice of car, including many taxis. It would appear that tyres and driver ability are the key issues. Jon

    Factory fitted w124 front speakers?

    Are these factory fitted w124 speakers? I got this car used so i have absolutely no idea what the previous owners did to the car. I read that the original speakers are 120 mm in size but the speaker that's currently in the dash is 110mm. I'm looking at changing the speakers in my dash and i'm...
