If you're gonna do the Euro plate first, I'd do MJ113K AMG. Isn't it 10 characters max?

E55 then E63, now back to an E55
Run the Euro plate! I have one on the rear (with my state's original license numbers printed and my state of residence) and I love it! I get so many looks/compliments
Hands down the best thing I did for that car.....

You'd have to push and hold the inside portion of the headlight and hold it there while super gluing it.

not strong enough.

what about my suggestion? telling them that the headlight is messed up and not working properly. that the highbeams point waaaaay waaaaay up, the city lights look weird at night and the xenon's flicker? they should replace the entire headlight for those reasons...

You can get a Euro plate and have it on our US cars legally? If it isn't too much trouble, please tell me how. If not, I guess I can try a search.

Umm...same thing with MP3s...we can get those on our stock set ups? I don't have Nav, just 6 cd in dash changer.

6. turn off COMAND
7. turn off car for 5 min & voila!
MJ - I'm having trouble with this mod and I have an 04.
All I can get the unit to do is beep once, while I am holding the
5, 3 & 7 buttons.


I tried with both the key in and out of the ignition and the command on and off.

Thanks

Thanks
make sure ur COMAND is in AUDIO mode
then pressing those numbers can be tricky...
i had to try several times to get it work...
u may want to try in different timings to get it right...
