The S211 was picked up without incident. Overall a nice car to drive back and my wife is very happy with it. The 350 engine is very powerful, feels like it has more omph than the 560SEC I had at one point.

So you bought it , congrats. 560 and 350 both have around 200KW and the transmission works better on the 350 .

And my SEC was a USA model when I lived over there for a couple of years, so it may have even been a little less, I can't remember the USA sepc. Was a nice car, was a shame to sell it.

For those interested a bad photo below.

Things to do:

1) The cargo net is missing, i have found one in the right colour at a wrecker
2) Bluetooth module needed, these are available on ebay. Still researching the difference between the knock off and genuine mercedes ones
3) car has silly space saver spare. Looks like there is room for a proper one. Need to source a used wheel.

Viseo Bluetooth works better than Mb, I should have a wheel for you if you want .

I've attached to this thread the service bulletin that describes the issue Helmut referred to on page one of this thread. it goes through the affected engine numbers and shows the hours required to fix

Update on the S211 E350. We've had it for about 15 months and put about 10,000km on it. Its been a pretty good car and we get about 13l/100km out of it.

Its recently been throwing error codes about ESP/Tire pressure. I got a code reader and I am getting a fault from the steering sensor. A reset didn't fit it so I am going to have it replaced in the new year. Apparently pretty common on these models. Also going to get a new set of tyres, luckily they are a common size (225/55R16)

In the last couple of weeks the E350 has stalled a few times and lost power.

My scanner shows cog des for crankshaft position sensor. This seems to make sense so I am going to order one and replace it.

It also has a couple of misfire codes, I'm assuming they are related to the bad crankshaft position sensor, so I will be trying that first.

I just replaced the crankshaft position sensor. A pain of a job on the M272. Lots of conflicting information on the Internet on what bolt type it is. Since you can't see it and you need to undo it by feel this is important. For reference on my car it was a TX30 Torx.

At least first test drive check engine light is not on and the car drives well. We'll soon see if it has fixed the issue properly.

A week later the new crankshaft position sensor seems to have fixed the problem.
