yes, i can see it pops out a bit but just not sure where is it exactly. is it your left tail light? the light from your pic looks more vertical than horizontal and it looks more like the tail light from a cadillac srx suv. that's why i'm kind of confused.

Yosheego, your wood console looks good to me. In fact, all the cars I saw at the dealer lot last had the same color and the sides were a little lighter on all the E sedans I saw; My dealer told me the expansion was normal too!

My car is garaged at home, but is parked outside in my spot at work, with a mixture of sun and shade. Of course, when I golf, it is outside in the sun for 5 hours or so at a time, as is the case when normally out and about.

Your posts are very helpful. Just bought E350 VIN A643834.
You appear to be able to track bulletins applying to specific cars.
What is the best way to track your info?? I assume regular readings.

I recently purchased a 2010 and noticed the issue with the reverse camera. Having all of this information is extremely valuable before heading to the dealer for service.

THANK YOU!

Check your datacard you have "272"980 .. ......

272 = 350 / 273 = 550 / 642 = BT
MY12 > 276 = 350 / 278 = 550

Yes, not certain why they issued another bulletin rather than revision but looks like they added designo trim and clean point 8/11 validation (claim vehicles produced 8/11 > are equipped with modified trim).

This bulletin applies to your vehicle – within VIN range & datacard includes 873 (seat heater for left/ right front seats) have dealer check it.
