#26 of 42 Radio Problems
Apr 29, 2005 (4:19 pm)
I have a 2001 Mercedes with horrible radio sound quality. The CD sounds great, but with the radio I have intermittent problems with the quality, or tone, of the music going bad. Sometimes the right speakers turn off completely, then the sound returns to perfect. They replaced the radio, the amplifier and they say they have checked all of the wiring. Next they want to replace the antenna amplifier. Any similar problems, or suggestions?
#27 of 42 Telephone in 2001 E320

I purchased a 2001 E 320 & it appears that the car already has the factory/dealer installed phone system. There is the cradle in the center arm rest. What phones will work in that cradle? Do I need to get a specially-equipped phone to work with the MB-system?

Are you talking about AM or FM reception? The AM reception in the E-class has been pitiful for many years now and cannot be improved. If you are talking FM, keep pressuring the dealer. I've had a '96 and an '01 and both FM radios have been superb.

Are you still as sold on the integrated phone as you were a year and a half ago? Am about to order a new car and wondering if it is worth the investment. I see two prices on the list:
"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

#32 of 42 Integrated phone on E 320/ E350 2006

Does anyone know whether these cars come prewired with phone/hands free and just need to have certain codes input to make things work? Or is there additional hardware required? Looks like all the buttons are there, and I have some technical specs that look like the data to turn these things on, but dont know where it would occur. Just curious.

Did anyone ever respond to this posting? I'm about to buy a 2001 E320 that has the phone equipment but I'm not sure whether it will work with my Treo 650. Any ideas?

www.wireless4mb.com is where you need to go. The answer is no. The MB handsfree system includes a cradle/phone combination in the armrest. You have to use the MB phone. They are coming out with a bluetooth "cradle" option shortly. You might be able to upgrade an 01E with that cradle and then be able to use the bluetooth connection of your treo.
#35 of 42 E Class Tail lights - LED
May 03, 2006 (8:46 am)
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?
