I used to have my car serviced at Atlanta Classic Cars regularly. Switched to RBM because that's closer, but never had a bad experience with them. Great car!

It should be lit continuously, either ON or OFF showing depending on circumstance. It's possible the youtube videos were cars in other countries/markets where programming may be different.

One needs to look around on the forums. I have had the issue with my W204, and the V8 W212s were plagued by it. While Benz is not as bad as Honda in this regard, they are not immune.

Sounds like you bought parts for the M272 V6, but your car has the M276. Make sure in the future at the very least it says "3.5L V6" and not "3.0L V6" when you put in your car information.

I like the W212 much better than the W213. I also like the W204 better than the W205. The new ones have a lightness about them that does not feel like Mercedes. Also, the new flat-across dash they're...

With no ice and a little snow in Arkansas - that's why I recommended an all-around tire like the DWS06. I don't think an Arkansas car needs a dedicated set of winter tires and wheels, but to each his...

Tried this, it did not work for my car. Not only that, but I can put the whole Icon assembly on my car and it has the same result.

It's a 50/50 mix of responses. Some say Rain-X helps, others say it makes it much worse.

Mercedes official stance is not to put it on the car.

Are these HID or halogens? Given that it is a 550, I assume they're HIDs.

In the case of HIDs always swap the bulbs from side to side first. That way you know if the bulb itself is the culprit....

Indeed it seems like a safe choice for a battery, but the batteries Mercedes uses do not suck. There is something going on with your car in particular.

If it were $40,000 OTD, I'd say you were probably getting a decent deal. But $40,000 + TTL? You could probably beat that.

Unless you're in a part of the country where AWD...
