I second this. Seems normal to me.

I had a left side clunk on my car. I heard it every morning heading to work. Mine turned out to be a broken motor mount. Mounts were replaced, no more clunk. Just something to check while your at it.
Knock in front drivers suspension
"I bought my car with 100K miles and one of the first things I did was replace the very noisy/worn front suspension bushings. I did upper control arms, both thrust arms, inner and outer tie rods, sway bar end links, all ball joints...its all new OEM stuff. The car used to make a lot of knocking and clicking noises, so its hard to tell if this knock I'm hearing now was present before the refresh, all of the noises went away except this one. But my question is, does anyone have any idea what this could be: When my car changes pitch positively or negatively, goes over small bumps, large humps, up and down ramps into parking lots, there is a knock only on the drivers side. I've gotten my head into the wheel well, and the fasteners keeping my new suspension in are all tight so thats not it. ..."

I'm not sure I could do that for 14 minutes, let alone days.
Quoted from ArmoE55's post
"I left the tranny in 'C' mode for the longest time... 14 consecutive days. Yes, without manually downshifting, either. Can anybody top that? "

You will have to modify (cut) the rear bumper to use either of those exhaust tip setups.
CLS 500 Mods - Feedback welcome
"Hi guys, Recently bought a 2005 CLS 500 with only 58k miles for a pretty good deal. Needs some mods for me to be 100% happy with it. I'm pretty indecisive so any feedback would be welcome. Just as an FYI, I'm trying to do everything on a budget - baby on the way! List of jobs: 1) Doesn't have AMG Kit on, I'm going to either replace the front bumper with an AMG bumper or put the on it. Do people just change the front bumper for an AMG without the full kit? AMG kits are so expensive I couldn't justify doing front back and sides. 2) Needs new Wheels. Looking at 20" ones as I put 19" on my SL and I always felt I could have gone bigger. Choice between the which I had on my SL or replicas of these 3) I'm not happy with the lack of exhaust note. Original idea was resonator delete with ..."

Start the car, let it run for a minute and pull the dipstick. Then shut the car off with the dipstick out. I am willing to bet you wont hear the noise. It sounds to me like your purge vent valve is toast. It sits behind the intake manifold. This is an easy way to diagnose it. The valve fails and crankcase pressure builds up. The noise you hear is the pressure bleeding off through the stuck valve.
check engine light came on and loud squeel
"Gents, Can you provide any quidance? I was out and about this am and while heading home my check eng light came on and upon shutting down the car a loud squeel came from under the hood. Car is dirving strong as i did get on it a few times as I was driving home from my sons school and from AJ's -(getting her cleaned up for the weekend) i of course immediately called my SA at the dealership and have not heard back - (big shock) - Any of you have this happen to you? Best Mike"

We need to get someone to setup a group buy with WALD.
Where did you get the DRL's? Wald?
Painted my Vossen CV3s (passenger side)
"Passenger Side: Gloss Black Barrels & Matte Black Face Driver Side:"
I had a tensioner fail and cause the belt to fail, which in turn wiped out a bunch of other stuff on the front of my engine. I had no indication (squeals, etc.) that the tensioner had stopped spinning. The car went on the back of a truck and the dealer said the "tensioner failed."
E63 belt shredding problem ...
"Hi guys I am at my 3rd belt in 2 years around 15000 mi The first time it shredded it broke a few pullies Second time and 3 rd time it only ripped one complete grove of the belt What can this be? I never replaced the tensioner and have 60000 mi Thanks for your help Erick"
In my neck of the woods (Central coast of California) stations routinely charge .25-.30/gallon more for credit vs cash. My problem is this: CC companies typically charge the station 3-4% per transaction. At $4/gallon, 4% would be .16 cents a gallon. So, where do they get off charging double what the CC companies charge them? I won't go to station that has tiered pricing. Gas stations make money based on volume, so the CC fees should be averaged into the single price.
--Cash vs. Credit Card: Gas Stations Charging Different Prices--
"may be off topic but do any of the state's in the east coast have this?? I just came here in Washington and some gas stations have cash or credit prices. Cash for unleaded was $2.99 and credit card was $3.25 while most others were $3.55 regular and $3.78 premium. I know in Fl I haven't seen this but the cheapest is $3.07 and premium I think $3.45"

The set was less than $900 shipped to my door. Quality is excellent, I am running OEM pads with them.
I'm not using the stock hats. I don't believe the stock rotor portion is replaceable. Stock rotors went in the trash since they were close to minimum thickness. Benzwerks rotors allow for replacement of just the rotor. For those of you looking for rotors, call Serge at Benzwerks. I think you might be pleasantly surprised with the quote he gives you. I'm not telling anyone what to do, just speaking from my personal experience. Giving the OP an option.
Quoted from FromM3toAMG's post
"too bad you cant/shouldnt reuse the stock hats.. if its that serious just buy one piece rotors."
Benzwerks 2 piece rotors are less than $1K/pair and you can replace just the rotor portion for around $250.
Got brakes on the e63 and saw something totally
"new. I had one peice front rotors on it from the beginning and now my dealership installed a 2 peice front rotor anyone else have the same experiance. Plus its nice to have better cooling on the rotors now. This just gives me more options when I need to replace them again and probably will save me some money. Just was curious if anyone else had this hapen on a 2008 E63. TIA"

"Pretty much finished with the outside unless I decide to paint the chrome trim."

Awesome write up! We appreciate the effort.
K-MAC Bushing Install Guide for W211 with Airmatic
"Finally had time to install my K-MAC bushings in the front end. Sadly, we did not have time to install the rear bushings, so we will do that in a few weeks and I will update this thread at that time. Here is the process as I documented it. Here is a side-profile picture looking down the side of the car. You can see the negative camber our lowered rides are dealing with. Note that I am running the MB crash bolts in the front, which only allow so much adjustment, definitely not enough to get back to factory specs. These are my alignment specs before any work was done. Turns out I had some pretty bad front end toe issues. Last alignment was about 9-12 months ago. This is what you get in the Front End kit (part #502216 K). 4 identical bushings, 1 extractor tool & 1 press tool seat. ..."
Can you post pics of your fitment? It's not even close on my 63 and I am trying to come up with a way to make it fit.
Quoted from JoshBlond's post
"fitment was pretty rough on mine. Heat gun and c clamps solved the problem. Bolts epoxied on were completely useless. Besides all that looks badass!"
My diffuser will be here tomorrow. SHWEEEET!!!
