I have been following the E-Class Town Hall for some time and have enjoyed and been informed by the dialog that has occurred here. At the moment I enjoy driving 3 Mercedes Benz: 2001 E320 Sport, 1999 CLK320 Cabriolet, 1997 C280.
My question has to do with the addition of the Timeport phone with voice. Does anyone know of a dealership in SoCal that will offer any sort of discount on the system installed. I have contacted two dealerships with marginal luck. One will sell the parts wholesale but will not install. The Other wants $2,400 for the complete installation. Wow!!
Also, has anyone heard of adding Command? It can be done on the ML320, but I have not heard of this being added to the E-Class.
Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided
I damaged one of my "sport package" rims today.
I need to find a replacement. First, I need to find the correct technical description of my wheel. Do I have an AMG 5 spoke wheel? If so, what is the part number? Does anyone know where I can locate the CORRECT rim at a discount?
My dealer wants $463.00 for the part not including changing the tire and balancing.

Well, here's my TeleAid poor service story. I too have been participating in this forum since before I bought my 2001 E320 in Nov. 2000. Love the car, especially after upgrading to 17" AMG +Dunlop SP 8000 tires, and then six months later to Eibach springs, as they use in the AMG.
Now, for TeleAid. I had decided not to renew, about the same time I got three different letters, two weeks apart, warning me that the credit card that I had registered with TeleAid was no longer valid--- Great, I said, saves me a call to have to cancel this worthless service.
Two months later, my wife asked me about a $250ish charge on the card...I panicked for obvious reasons, then calmed down and realized it was just TeleAid. I was furious that after telling me I was unrenewable they found a way to do it. I called them up and was promptly credited back to the card.
Then in mid January, 4 weeks after the phone call and cancellation, I am driving my daughter home from gymanastics (she is 8), and the radio was commondeered-- scared the SH&$T out of me and her, and hear a message "This is blah blah testing your TeleAid service,,,something like that" This lasted for ten minutes. I could not gain operation of my radio, and pushing the SOS TeleAid button to tell them to knock it off did no good.
They're lucky they did not cause me to panic and have an accident. Bastards.
Have you checked Tirerack for a replacement rim? I've seen many 5-spoke rims for around $200 there. There are also a good number of AMG wheels on ebay, though tougher to find a single, I'd imagine.
Not sure about the right part # though.
When I turned on the heater in my E320, not only did the AUTO indicator light come on , but also the EC button light. I cannot cancel the EC button. In other words, I cannot get the heater out of the Economy Mode. Any suggestions?
