B250E DC Charging option?!

Everyone: An article describing the “bearing repair motor problem“ by Electric and mentioned here by Peter also has embedded a DC option for the B Class by QC Charge in CA. Read the description and the availability. Equipment price is about $3000. There are some pictures that explains this topic a l...

Re: It's more than electric, It's a Mercedes

Hey everyone! While everyone waits on what’s next from MB the folks from Munich came up with the Cooper SE. Although development has taken a really long time they (BMW/Mini) will start delivering in March here in the States. Affordability is the pitch that they are using. Ergonomics? Did I mention h...

Re: Back to the future?

My dear club member! Get rid of it while it’s still operable!!! I’ve driven a Model 3 now for 3 months and can't put into words the joy I get out of it. The B Class is a sweet car with so much potential. Unfortunately, as you stated MB has dropped virtually all support for this model. How sad!! I ha...

Re: Back to the future?

Well guys/gals: This just in from MB HQ. “Thank you for your interest in the EQC — an innovative new direction for Mercedes‑Benz which is getting a lot of attention! It launched in Europe and other markets several months ago and has generated so much interest worldwide that Daimler AG has had to mak...

Re: Tire recommendations? Cheap & quiet!

Well...just as I was about to install the tires I sold the car. Returned the tires and bought a Model 3. My goodness what a difference compared to the B Class. The ride in the B Class is slightly better - I think but that’s about it. The tech in the 3 is like driving the “iPhone 20”. I had a glitch ...

Re: Calling all 2014-2015 owners

Peter: Thank you for your insight. I had it checked today ($150) and you are right!! It is a spring/ring behind the airbag. For another $600 (part/labour) they’ll fix it for me once they get the part. They had done the Takata recall back in February this year to add an extra ground wire and a contac...

Re: Back to the future?

Hey y’all!! I was “over there” (song) this past summer. Lots and lots of B Klasse cars. Gas, diesel and EV. Many as taxis. I recall seeing a UTube vid on a B Class EV test mule out in the cold in Sweden/Norway. Don’t know what happened. However, according to AutoBild (German mgz.) the 2020 MB GLB SU...

Re: Calling all 2014-2015 owners

Hello all! Steering wheel started making strange clicking sounds yesterday. This seems so odd as you all know that the car is almost silent. It didn’t seem to bother anything but it became even more annoying. While leaving a parking lot I turned the wheel and heard a snap sound. The battery was a li...
