We just purchased a 1997 E320 last week and have been trying to program our Genie intelicode garage door opener to the car's remote. After calling Genie, they faxed us with directions that did not work on our car. They told us that if the car was an early 1997 model, it may not work. Has anyone encountered this problem or have any advice as to how we can program it into our car. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

1. Push the "training button" located under a little door on the opener itself (the unit that is hung from your garage ceiling). A light may come on when you push the button.
2. Then push the hand-held garage door opener button that makes the door go up and down while you are holding the hand-held opener 2-3 inches from the button you are "training" in the car.
3. Hold both buttons (on garage door opener and in car) until the light on the visor (or rear view mirror, depending on the model) starts to blink quickly. That should do it. Try a couple of times if it does not work the first time.
I would like to put larger chrome wheels and tires on this vehicle. My idea was to use the stock wheels and tires for the winter and the new ones for the summer.
What is the largest wheel and tire combination I can use?
Who has already done this?
My concern is that I do not want to get incorrect readings from my speedometer/odometer/on-board navigation...
Thanks for any input!
I just went to replace my wiper blades for the first time for my E320 (2002). The blades did not really last that long(6 months) with not much use. Does anyone have any suggestions for replacing them with something other than the normal replacement wiper blade. Something that might last a little longer?
Thanks for any suggestions.
Does anybody know of a "trading post" where I can share and obtain different COMAND CD cuts? I have successfully burnt a copy of my COMAND CD and use the copy in case I lose the original. I'm interested in obtaining (a) a newer version for my region as well as (b) other regions.
Bite the bullet & do it once, the right way. get the phone from the MB dealer.
Has anyone else upgraded the wheels and rims on their 2003 E320???
If your going to spend money, spend a few extra and get at least 19" wheels.
I have 19" wheel and it's lowered a little.
It looks amazing and the ride quality is not that bad.
Looks great, handles great and still rides fairly well considering the setup.
"Hands Free" and "Hands Free Voice". I would choose the former as I don't do a LOT of driving and talking, but when I do, it would be nice to look up numbers on the dash display instead of trying to do it with my handset.
On the other hand, I already own a Motorola V-710 (which is one of the same phones MBZ sells for $600+) which is Bluetooth and voice compatible, so perhaps it is not really worth the freight unless I were a driving fool?
Appreciate your thoughts
I've had my 06 E-class sedan for almost a year now and noticed the other day another E-class with a different tail lights than mine. It was badgeless so I couldn't tell if it was a 350 or 500. It had a bunch of LED looking lights on the top part of the tail lights. I know for sure mine does not look like that. I've looked at a few sites and could not find it. Is this an AMG thing and can I order it somewhere for my E-350? Anyone know?
Can one of you E-class owners or experts tell me whether the hands free communication option in the 2006 E350 allows you to use your own phone via Bluetooth, or whether you have to buy a new Mercedes phone (and therefore have yet another phone number!). I would like to be able to use my own Bluetooth phone, through the E350 audio system, giving it voice commands. Can I do this? The dealer isn't sure.
It's been only two months since Mercedes announced the second coming of the E-Class, an updated version of the widely popular sedan that features a number of new revisions. More power, slightly enhanced styling, and a wealth of new electrical components are just a few of the changes the 2007 E can boast of.

I gotta tell ya, MB just keeps on ripping you off. I guess they assume money doesn't matter to us.
