Hi All,

My Car : W211 - 58 plate E220 CDI Avantgarde Saloon

Third week of ownership and as I was driving along the A38, I went around the roundabout and the CEL/EML Engine Light came on. It was amber so I continued home.

Started the car the next morning and the light went off.

This morning cruising along the A38 again near Lichfield and PING... the light was back on. I rang breakdown who turned up an hour later and plugged in the diagnostics machine, he didn't give me the error code but he said it was a faulty 'Cam Shaft Position Sensor'.

He reset the light and said it may come back on when I start the car or after driving.

I didn't get any starting problems and drove like normal with a slightly louder engine noise.

ECP have 30% off but the brands they have are HAAS and HELLA.

A google search suggested HAAS are rubbish.

I'm planning to change the Cam sensor myself but I would like to know where you peeps recommend I buy it from.

Also, are there any W211 drivers in Brum

Thanks
