I'm sure the oil level is right, not sure what the amount listed on the invoice is (but that's not necessarily related to how much oil they put in minus how much oil they took out).

Rather than...

The cable which connects to the iPod is easily replaceable, and I had to do this at some point (when the iPhone 5 came out? I forget) because the newer phone wouldn't charge. The fix was a...

Shouldn't be a big surprise that an 11 year old car needs shocks/struts :)

You wrote "new front lower arms" -- there's two different sorts of arms down there. 140 is called "strut rod" in EPC, and...

Ive had my car since new (2007), with 105,000 miles. I haven’t had any front-facing bulbs replaced ever. Not headlights, nor fog/cornering.

You wrote that the engines are selling for $1300. That's what I'm comparing against:

Option 1: Buy $1300 engine. R&R engine. Sell old one, as broken, for a few dollars.
Option 2: Buy $500...

It is neat. My car has it -- in addition to turning on/off the lamps turn in the direction you're turning.

On my W211, I had the same issue. Took it apart and lubed it up ... which fixed the problem for about 12 months. I've replaced it now.

Thanks. I think MB's answer to me is "take a hike, Jack." The settlements were capped at 10y. I bought my car in Feb 2007.

That caliper says "Resolution: 0.01”/ 0.1mm; Accuracy: ±0.2mm/0.01”. That is, it'll display tenths of mm, but it's only accurate to +/- 0.2mm. If a new rotor is 30mm, and you must replace when...

I believe what usually goes bad are the door handles. A bit 'fiddly' to replace, but reasonably easily done. Not inexpensive, though, perhaps $200 per handle.

See, e.g.,...

I have an early-2007 E350 with an M272 engine ( 30 396553, affected range is <= 30 468993), but the balance shaft issue hasn't cropped up yet.

Please don't use calipers to measure disc rotor thickness. Especially cheap ones. They're not that accurate. You should be using a micrometer.

For example, (these are numbers from some random...

Was this a reply to me? The only engine codes I've ever gotten from this car is P0015. There are a set of codes which indicate the problem reasonably definitively, this isn't one of them. In fact,...

I've now tried both.

The Arkon IPM 121 lighter socket holder is a complete non-starter. There's no way for it to be installed in the lighter socket and move the gear selector to/from P.
