Comment Re:BMW vs. Mercedes (Score 1) 403

That's interesting indeed- I know Merc's parts support for old models is great but didn't realise they did manuals etc too. Currently I run an Audi quattro, but Audi's attitude is to take down anywhere that puts up it's "EKTA" parts catalogue. Their parts supply is dreadful too, you really would be amazed at how many things are NLA or extra hard to get. I've got a fog light lens that has been on back order for over a year. Looks like my next car's going to be a Merc.

Whyever aren't features like ABS fitted with any form of error logging? There's no definite way for an accident investigator to know that ABS failed, so who knows how many accidents that has caused. Same goes for stability control. I know they can check the mechanical parts of the system and look for a worn pad or leaking hose, but if there was a controller or sensor fault who would know, except the victims.
