Default Pictures of the great seat fix!



See post #344 for description of the pictures. I have been sitting on this for about a month now and it seems to be smoothing out it's little edges by me sitting on it. If I take a road trip in it and it holds comfort for hours I'll declare victory. For now the truce is holding.

car is good, i've noticed some fading on the Burl wood trim, so i have to take it for a trim replacement.

Which dealer do you use for warranty service ?

08 R350 gasser
My TDI guru is doing maintenance for this one as well
Presently I'm happy that it's not a Bluetec- chain stretch, oil cooler leaks, turbo, and injector seal leaks.
Gasser version is less problematic, it seems
The seats are very comfortable IMO and the cabin is very spacious.
I've never had anything this big. It's a wonderful road machine.
Passat is still my DD. R350 is for long distance travel.
I will miss the diesel, but I think my anxiety level will be lower
Over time I will be watchful for how the new 4cyl MB diesel pans out.

None of the problems you list have occurred on the E250 Bluetec.

DTLA. They have been A+ so far. Loaners are new gassers just to remind how nice a diesel is. I have the Black Ash I think it's called. No problems so far. Looks great with the chrome and the beige dash and seats.
