Finaly back in a CL!!! Pics in side CL63

Its been a few years but I'm finally back in a Benz. I just purchased a 2008 CL63 White on White Designo. I'm extremely happy with that car. Car is stock besides rims, lowering module and tint.

There are just 3 thing wrong with it. Can you guys tell me if these are common issues that can be resolved rather easy or is a trip to the dealer necessary?

1. Outside temp is way off. By about 30 degrees. Any way to calibrate this?
2.I-phone plug int he glove box wont charge the phone. Only plays music. is this normal?
3. Bluetooth wont pair with my I-phone 5. Says devise is unrepairable.
4. The circle control for the command center seems to be sticking. when moving up in to an option and pressing down on it, the selected menu wont stay open and just closes right of way. Any input on this?

Enjoy the pics!

Beautiful Car!
I believe there is a problem with Apple v6.0.2 and higher with MB vehicles. I only know because I could not connect to a loaner M350 a few months back. This may not be unique to your car, but I don't know the fix.

the temp sensor shows higher? if so - it has become dislodged from the front grill and is picking temp from the engine. fish it and put it back.

also disconnect it and clean connectors. those are known to go dirty and change resistance which provides false readings.

the iphone will not charge as the connector is for older iphones (3) where power was provided over specific pins rather than the usb pins. you need a cheap adapter that will provide power to the usb pins. check ebay.

thing looks good , but in a refrigerator way... i would paint wheels black. black wheels will make it look more aggressive.

Thanks for the helpful info! White wheels are definitely not for everyone and until now i wasn't a fan of them either but this car won me over and they are staying! Ive had all sorts of car/wheel color combos and have a murdered out Viper sitting in the garage that this storm trooper CL looks great next too
