Is your car lowered? I have been searching for springs for this car. Have not had any luck. Anyone?

^^ I believe Vic has the air body control and since he is an MB tech, he has access to the Star diagnostic system which allows him to change the ride height

Correct, but using the Star Diagnostic you can only go so low, to lower even further you will need to modify the height sensors at each wheel using adjustable links.


There are two different H&R lowering kits available for steel suspension, they lower 30mm (on paper)


H&R-28.740.1 up to 1105kg front axle weight and
H&R-28.740.2 from 1106kg front axle weight


The latter is normally used for larger engines and 4-matic as they are heavier up front, but we usually use the lighter spring in all applications as it tends to lower a bit more.

The wait is finally over. Ordered November 29 or so, built March 24 in Sindelfingen and ready for delivery May 1. Hood stars are underrepresented here and so are wagons, so I figured I'd changed that a bit....



Selenite gray magno



Nappa black, widescreen



That's where the star belongs.....

Between ordering (blindly) and delivery, I had my fair share of doubts after starting to read about the care limitations with this paint (handwash etc.).
Can't say anything about that part yet, but just from the looks of it I am inclined to state that I did everything right...

What care limitations for the paint do you speak of?

Here is an article about what not to do when caring for matte paint.

That's quite a downer article, but thanks much for posting.

From what I heard, the finishes supposedly got much better and less sensitive over the years. There are also plenty care products out that tend to matte finishes.

I will certainly not wash my car with two buckets every week (while I appreciate a nice looking car, I am not the type to be investing too much of my time in the upkeep I am embarrassed to say). I'll plan on dousing it down with a power washer every now and then probably, and pay the local hand-wash car wash a visit to see how they perform.

Can't be all that bad as long as you try to avoid auto car washes. And if it is, well, then I just have to drive it until it falls apart if I can't sell it. And I don't see a problem with that, if the fun driving this continues at even a fraction of what it is right now. Love this ride, and am relieved to see proof for the theory that happy drivers rarely post their positive experiences on boards like this, but the unfortunate owners who scored a lemon (rightfully so) air their grievances here. I was a bit concerned following many of these posts here over the past few months.

Best of luck to those of you who have issues with their rides. I hope one day you'll get to experience how great this vehicle is when all systems work as they are supposed to.

That is a great E400S Luxury. Nice look combining the matte paint and Luxury trim. Won't see one every day!

Just picked up my 2017 Black E43 last week and Its been an excellent ride so far! Has just the right amount of power for when I want to open it up and can also be very quiet and smooth for my 1.5 year old daughter and clients I drive around once in a while

Car and brakes looks great! Who painted them? The dealership or an aftermarket body shop? I asked my dealership (United States) about painting the calipers on an E300 and they said they wouldnt do it.
