    Wanted- NTG1 Command head unit for 05 CL500

    As description, looking for a replacement DVD Command head unit for my 2005 W215 CL500 at a reasonable price. Mine is showing the dreaded "Flash file corrupted" message, so I think it's toast. Sometimes powers up eventually...sometimes not.

    CL500 W215 2004 sidelights can't remove.

    Hi, probably an easy one and I'm being useless but how the hell do I remove and replace my side lights on my 2004 W214 CL500? Normally you can just pull or twist, but is there a way of doing it? Is there a clip I'm missing as it's a very tight fit behind the headlights. Thanks.

    I have only had my CL for a month, and have been thinking on and off about checking this fabled drain hole for blockages as I don't fancy £££ worth of ECU destruction and a wet footwell thrown in. I have searched on here but haven't found the info, so I thought I'd ask about where this drainage...
