Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Yellow Tint Film On Fog Lights

Washed the CLS55 after a little while and applied some yellow tint film on the fog lights. For now I quite like it. Lets see if I will keep it in the long run…




Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, New Battery For The Nokia Carphone

Bought a new original Nokia battery (BL-5C) for the Nokia carphone in the CLS55. I love this older technology as it just works (and keeps on working 🙂 )




Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Temporary Fix For The Oil Filler Neck

Had to apply a temporary fix for the oil filler neck, as it’s still leaking a bit (more like sweating). Used silicone sealant as a temporary measure. I will probably replace the filler neck somewhere next year.




Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Some Statistics

Someone asked me on a forum how many kilometers per litre the CLS55 does and I was happy to share that information with them. Yes it’s a big engine with a lot of power, but when you treat it gently it can be quite economical for it’s size.

I achieved a respectable 1:8.5 over 155km (mostly highway) with cruising speeds around 120km/u. Also the fuel gauge indicated a half tank when I had already driven 350km’s, which suprised me!

I love the white gauges in the black dashboard 🙂



Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Orange Brake Calipers?

Absolutely love this color on the AMG calipers. Might have to do this on my CLS as well…Something for later 🙂




Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Special Tool For Replacing Engine Mounts

Bought a special tool, which is particularly handy when replacing the engine mounts on a CLS55 W219 or E55 W211. The exhaust manifold takes a fair bit of space on each side of the engine and there is where this tool comes in handy with removing the bolt which sits directly under the exhaust manifold (on each side).

Bought it from eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/125234922812
