Best price for the team stuff but I do agree.....but it is still a deal because it is cheaper than originally it was so I believe it is still worth posting :).
I applied to new tidal account but still no subscription. Is there time we need to wait for activation?
I persevered with this and spoke to a helpful agent who recognised straight away what the issue was … Although I had created an account, added my vehicle details etc. I still did could not see the option for ‘Online Music’.What you have to do is make a call from your car to MB Contact (Should already be in your contacts list).By doing this, it sends the cars details and activates your Mercedes Me account.Popped back in the house, logged in and the option was there. Boom! 12 months free music!! (y)
You read it completely wrong, check my earlier post or just read the actual Ts and Cs. What you quoted just says the app is only on the head unit of those vehicles not that the offer is only for them.
Confirm your vehicle has the new MBUX –– if you’re not sure, check in with your dealership. Ensure your Mercedes me account is linked with your vehicle. How to link your account. Via the screen in your car, select “Media,” “Online-Music,” then select the TIDAL tile and log in with your new TIDAL account. Start listening! Create your own playlists with the TIDAL mobile or desktop app, or try our custom Mercedes-Benz playlists.
Activated on website, but in app it keeps asking to restore purchase or try trial. Guys any ideas? if i unlink my tidal account, will that remove the promo ?
Found this in Purley Way. Its MB Intense edt. Bottle is same as La Parfum.. slightly different colour.
I avoided the rain! If I could get to Bishopbriggs again I would, but I won't be there for a few weeks. Good luck.
Thank you! And i really appreciate you taking the time out for it. Cheers
No sign of any fragrances in Jamaica Street, Glasgow, I'm afraid :|
T-shirts, Polos, Jumpers,Jackets, Caps etc available in different sizes. No offer on caps unfortunately. Defo on jumpers and jackets though.. if you do manage to get there, speak to the owner Dave.. he gave me further £10 off on tommy trainers.
Have it put down.
Fall? Did you???
Seriously considering this as my Fiat Panda is on its last legs.Do I own it after the lease period or have to give it back?
We overlook a small public car park and Monday to Thursday a guy in a Mondeo parks in the corner and sleeps like that!
The aesthetics are a little garish. The GT 4-door coupe 63 S puts out 630bhp compared to 577bhp in the standard 63. Both equipped with a 4.0L twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Is it worth £150000? Individual preference. Similar coupe styling & performance would be the Porche Panamera Turbo or Turbo S E-Hybrid also with the 4.0 L V8 engine comvined electric engine outputting 671bhp. There is the Aston Martin Rapide S, V12 at 552bhp but similar £150000 premium. The M5 competition I would say is a worthy contender given the 4-series 4-door coupe doesn't feature the V8 twin turbo in the 5-series. It may be a saloon but the competition edition at £96000 outputs 616bhp. The BMW M5 CS will likely be out soon probably outputting closer to 650bhp although I am sure at a premium. The M550i is being launched in the UK and at £76000 has V8 twin turbo at 526bhp, probably the most sensible choice. Another sensible/affordable choice could be the KIA stinger GTS 3.3L V6 twin turbo with AWD but an option to select RWD.
This offer is still on, just booked my 2012 in for the adapter on the 16th Feb, and the offer is still on, it's still free.
Yeah my car is old as eff
Cheers. I have a 2013 so hopefully a little more functionality will be available!
Not really no. But it is free so still worth it. Tells you petrol. Distance to next service...
Hi, is it any good? Mines booked in for next week
Do they have any "In In In In In In In In" T Shirts? (excited)
Good christ, this place is turning into the Guardian comments section where every article is somehow linked back to Brexit (lol)
Still too expensive!
It's the usual problem, isn't it? 30% off a stupid price is still a stupid price. Not to mention the £7 for P&P.
Had me in stitches (lol) (lol)
Yes, my partner has quite a few items, he’ll pay that price but sorry I’m not going to, total rip off
Have you ever bought F1 merchandise? The caps are normally £35-40.
An absolute rip off, my partner is an F1 fan, but £25 for a baseball cap 😡
even with the discounts some of those prices are eye watering (shock)
I’ve had it fitted for a few days now and it does work. Yes it is just a Bluetooth ODB2 adapter. I’ve seen zero items that cost money to use, perhaps my car has only the minimal support. I can see: How long parked and location/directions to assist return to car (if you need that help!) Parking time reminders Fuel level Odometer Selected retailer info (you can change this) Time and mileage to next service (I used an independent last time and it still has the info) Battery voltage (not useful) Functions: Find a local parking space (not live space info obviously so no better tha Google) Refuelling stats Record of trips (trips can be disabled and deleted individually) Accident alert (that may cost I’m not going to try it!) Make a service booking (gimmick) You can disable individual functions in the app if concerned about privacy. The big issue I have is that the Android app uses power even when the car is not used. 3% today and I’ve not been to the car. When used 4 times yesterday for a total of 30 miles it used a horrific 10% of the battery so I may be halting background use, losing almost all functionality and requiring running the app to get any info for later. Others are rporting high battery usage so perhaps they will rectify. If you get it, you can try it and just uninstall if you find it useless or too much of a privacy concern
I have a 2014 C-Class. I've played around with the Mercedes apps and services since I got it and can confidently say they are utter, and complete, rubbish from start to finish. Mercedes need to revamp their online offerings because, at the moment, there is absolutely nothing to recommend them. They're slow, buggy, inconsistent and limited. 'Free' is still too expensive.
Get this fitted and you'll have the service department calling you up every time you have a blown sidelight bulb or similar. The dealers make very little margin on selling cars or parts in the first place but they make a huge amount of profit on anything they can put through the service department. This device is designed to bring more work into the official service workshops, not to help the owner of the vehicle.
True, they make a half decent taxi though.
Exactly this. £5 for the adaptor, loads of free apps that will tell you all manner of metrics, OBD II problem codes, blah blah blah. Instant and average fuel consumption etc.
I put a request in for a GLC Coupe. Will see what happens.
They slap a high insurance excess on and will get hounded with sales calls after, but a good shout if looking to test a new merc (y)
No business email but appreciate the post HEAT (y)
Was this brand new or pre-registered? Can't see anything similar online, did you haggle for this or was it an offer advertised online? Cheers
I had an old Toyota that cost £300 that I used to go 4 miles to work and then back every day for the last 7/8 years, which has cost me next to nothing, but was getting to the point where that was changing. I also have a top spec Mini countryman that I lease, and my wife drives that. Drove past a little peugeot 207 convertible in white in a garage by me a few weeks ago. Couple of years old, looked nice and shiny and was under £10k, and I just bit :-) So I've got both types of deal. I just like the peace of mind the lease gives me against costs on what could be an expensive car.
I can see the merit of both choices having only bought new once, 20 years ago. and have been a S/H sub £2000 guy since then , but as I mentioned in another thread my last 4 MOTs have cost me £500+ each, so this kind of deal is getting more appealing the more I think about it....
Kudos simply for a polite logical and reasoned comeback. I'm still a lease fan, but I do understand your reasoning. Horses for courses and each to his own, but I really am hoping you get the hassle free period you envisage. Best Wishes.
Well, i have been using 14k to 19k cars as local run arounds and going out cars at the weekend. I then decided to purchase a cheaper car for local run arounds/school runs..etc. First bought a mini 1.4diesel for £1000, sold it 5 months later for £1100 spent £0 on it. Then purchased a vw tdi for £2100, had that for 2 months now and no issues, had one before for 3 years and like i say never had a single issues. Hoping to keep it for a good 3 years this one, and it should sell for the price i paid for it in 3 years time so no loss there. These cars do not need expensive servicing like you suggest. They need a service every 2 years and the service parts are cheap for it. In fact, i service my own cars so the labour cost is zero once again. My friends vw tdi is on 269k miles, never had a issue. Mines 100k.
I got ripped off on this kind of deal. Took my 7 year old Audi in for a health check, the dealer said I should get a new car, so ended up costing me over £350pm.
You don't have to buy any of the recommendations though. I have two free health checks with BMW every year and it's never cost me anything in 10 years, plus you get a nicely cleaned car when you go back. :)
When I got the spring health check they didn't even bother with the hard sell. Was nothing wrong with my car so just went home with a free car wash and brand new wipers. I don't think they'll make things up to try and sell you stuff you don't need.
How can anybody mark this hot, when it's fairly obvious it's all just a scam to get you to take your Mercedes into the dealership so they can then find all manner of things which need fixing, as they say there's no free lunch.
and I'll get my coat.... X)
I have sky TV and coffee at home plus I don't have to drive around looking for my nearest dealer. I'll get my coat :p
I have heard of people living near airports with a interconnecting train (LGW ,BHX) etc taking kids for a fun ride in the trains .
haven't voted either way but the comments are hilarious.
It could possibly be a clean or change to the air/pollen filter for the air conditioning. I may be wrong but forgive me, I don't drive ;-)
No, it didn't include a recharge. As soon as I got the sales pitch for £35 worth of sale, I excused myself and saved some time.
I sent request never recoeved a call back
Doesn't sound right... Check here: Summer_Health_Check Were they offering you the full check with re-gas perhaps for £35? Link indicated the air conditioning treatment alone will be free.. I took the spring offer just a couple of weeks ago and had my wipers replaced free of charge.
I submitted a request via their website and got a call and offered if for £35. This is a big con.
i had booked my car into mercedes stratford, i arrived on the day and was informed that i would not be getting the wiper blades changed - as they needed to be the ones with the yellow dot, as i couldn't be asked with their rude receptionist, i let myself be easily fobbed off, and left to find my car wasn't even washed nor vacuumed. at this point i just shrugged it off, and worte the dealership off - as i have had previous dealing with them - mostly negative. on my way home, i called mercedes, who rebooked it into the loughton branch, this time i was offered tea/coffee/coke, told my wiper blades would be done and once all was complete, my car was sparkling clean, waiting for me right outside the entrance! lesson learnt: "avoid mercedes stratford folks" free tea/coffee/coke - tick free wash & vac - tick free wiperblades - tick free healthcheck - tick
I will draw a three pointed star on the front hood of my banged up kia and have it shining
My girlfriend took the car in today for the spring health check.... Quite disappointed if I'm honest they recommended 2 new rear tyres priced at £90 a corner needless to say we didn't get them. No wash & vac as they said it wasn't included No free wiper blades as they thought ours were fine and my girlfriend didn't want to protest too much but oh well what was I expecting?
Registered yesterday evening and got a call today from my chosen dealer to arrange an appointment
So, did anyone go? Would be great to hear of others' experience of getting the free wiper blade :P
Understand with farrari or Lamborghini but merc nah
Ahahahah basically summed up the website...
Cold. Not Frozen, or from B&M, or by Apple, JL won't pm it, No 5 yr warranty using my VIP account from Richer Sounds, cheaper on Amazon.De even using Google translate and curreny exchanger using a NatWest account incurring no foreign fees, not Aldi super 6 or Tesco store specific with zero quido or TCB. oO
heat because there are some old fashioned guys left that say what they think not sit on the fence like girls and get splinters up their ar**e. Go Clarkson id drink with you anytime lol
Why is your phone not password/code locked? Most phones now (may be IOS doesn't since Apple are backwards) have a ... "if lost please contact....." (phone owner info) scrolling on the lock screen anyway
Really that should be in your phone anyway as if the car's a write off (a key reason for needing that info in the first place) the last thing a paramedic will want to do is sit at the scene of the collision until they obtain it from the car. I'm all for that information being stored in the car as a back up if your phones gone AWOL but I'd be concerned about security of that information and how likely it could be restored when the car gets sold on. I prefer to keep my I.C.E. information on my phone as the top contact so it's the first one to check without scrolling through.
Any safety info always welcomed. Come on the rest of the UK cars....Why not put in the ICE (InCase of Emergency) info too like a phone number and relationship (i.e. wife parents company etc)
and try to sell you a new one ..........................
Good advice. Whilst you're at it, change the pollen filter/cabin filter.
Kwik fit charge more but includes a full regas with a guarantee that as many cars often end up with an AC pump fault due to lack of use - if the regas does not work then you dont pay!!! Paid £45 and ice cold - so peace of mind knowing AC works properly
The gas in checked and topped up too, will cost you 30 plus quid plus hassle to top up gas at home.
PS if you do a DIY job, make sure you select the recirculation option on your AC or you'll just vent it straight out :-)
This is not a regas, the system is cleansed by running a deodoriser through it. The smell initially is like the pink liquid you gargle with at the dentist. It's expensive but then you're paying a main dealer and you will get any levels topped up too. Some want the stamp on the service book. Not a bad deal but not exactly ground breaking either.
I think you care a bit too much.
Taxable value on this for 2013-2014 is 25% of list = £17405 Annual tax = £3480 @20% or £6962 @ 40% Less than £300/600 per month Source = here but you may have to flll in the model details.
Yeah driving style is king, you can bet they accelerate at a very slow rate during those tests. I used to have a TVR Tuscan, 4.0ltr and that would do 35mpg if you didn't hoof it around, no weight though and you'll get 3-4mpg on track :o :o :o
No, just putting a presumptuous fool on the internet right. Correct me if I am wrong, but never once did I say I turned down 10k. 10k it was an example but if you had paid attention you would of realised this. Stop clutching at straws, my point is completely and utterly valid and the sensible option if you are smart with your money. I was and still am, my only vice is cars (and gold but im rubbish at that so I'll stick to driving) Also, I'm fairly sure I know what my job roles have been as and when they changed unless you somehow know different. Now, you can come back and make another snide comment just to make sure you get the last word in, pathetic.
Yeah of course, with my driving style I usualy take 50% the figures, so for me to get 25mpg on a 3ltr engine - YES ! thats brilliant. By the way, reading through the comments and I must say I agree 100% with most of your views. Not going to drudge it all up, but I have been in very similar positions as you.
