Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, iCarsoft Diagnostics v3.0

A DIY mechanic wants and needs to know all about their car, and a proper diagnostics program/unit is therefore invaluable. I opted for the iCarsoft Diagnostics unit v3.0. I will probably look into Xentry/DAS in the near future, but having this small powerful device in the car is a godsend.

Its powered by the car, so essentially hassle free! Don’t forgot to update the unit using the software on the iCarsoft website.

Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Replacing the Supercharger Pulley Bearing (Nachi)

I decided to replace the supercharger pulley bearing with a fresh new Japan made Nachi bearing. One of the easiest way is the hot/cold method, where you heat up the pulley and freeze the bearing itself. This results in the bearing sliding into the pulley with relative ease.

I could’ve also used my workshop press, but I didn’t want to force it in. I followed this guide for it:

Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, a new chapter

Sold the Mini Cooper S R53 JCW not too long ago to pursue my dream of driving a V8 powered car with a lot of muscle.

I have been investigating for over a year what I really wanted to drive. Started with the E55 AMG W211, but the looks (especially the interior) looked a bit dated to me. Until I found out that the W219 chassis had the same engine in it, the CLS55 AMG.

I found one close by (there were only 3 on sale at the time) and after a good chat with the owner and a marvellous testdrive, I bought it. Absolutely love the car! A lot of maintenance has already been done by me and a lot still has to be done. Im happy with somewhere between 500 and 600BHP, but that is something for later.

Enjoy the pics!
