    Hello one and all.

    On 1st September I took the plunge and decided to trade in my Ford Focus for a 2019 MB C-Class C200.

    And what a nice car it is. I do, however, have a few questions with which I am hoping my new MB friends can help.

    Firstly, the tyre pressure is listed in KPA and I can't change it to either PSI or BAR. Anyone know how I can do this or know how to covert KPA to either PSI or BAR?

    Secondly, the car doesn't seem to be Android Auto compatible, which is a shame. According to the nice people at my local MB dealership it can't be retrofitted. Is that true? There must be a unit out there that is Android Auto compatible that will replace my current one.

    Thirdly, while the car has Cruise Control it isn't adapted Cruise Control, which is a shame. Can this be updated and fitted with adapted Cruise Control?

    Lastly, I have found out the car has a recall notice on it. I've been in touch with my local dealer and have been told there's a problem with the seatbelts and passenger-side airbag. The car is booked in for Friday. Has anyone else experienced problems like this?

    Thanks.

    Hello and welcome. Divide kPA by 100 and you get Bar, so 230kPA = 2.3bar.

    The guys to ask about Android retrofitting are Comand Online. Email them with your VIN. If anyone can do it, they can also probably upgrade your Cruise Control but I imagine the costs will be eye-watering :shock:

    Hello and welcome, Martin. Most airline gauges have at least Bars and PSi shown - and in the recess behind the fuel filler flap you'll probably find the tyre sizes and pressures printed. If not, once you've done a conversion as suggested above that's a very useful place to put it!
