    Hi all, Just wanna share and not sure if any of you here experience this in your GLC. Had my GLC for 9 months already. Approx 3mths into driving it, i start getting knocking sound coming from the rear. Couldnt ascertain what caused it. Brought it down to the dealer to have them check but couldnt find anything. (i though it was something loose within the suspension system) It happens when going over uneven roads (which cause your car to flex). most often and obvious when you approach a slope (up or down) at an angle. Funny thing was, it only happens while driving low speed + flexing. Cruising around over uneven roads was ok. Got so irritated with the noise, i started my own little investigation. 1. Removed everything i had in the trunk - Just to make sure it wasnt something i put in the trunk that is hitting something. 2. Rear seat belt buckle knocking against the plastic panels - secured the buckles before driving. the sound was still there. 3. Rear trunk had loose panels - Hard to replicate but i tried shaking some of the panels to see if it makes the same sound. nothing. 4. Rear trunk roller cover (or whatever you call it) - removed the whole roller cover thing and drive around. Sound was still there. 5. Rear folding seats - folded all seats down and drove to the exact same location that caused the sound every time i drove past. sound was GONE!! Repeated it a few times just to confirm. I was more or less convinced that it was the rear seat latch hitting each other when the car flexes. Solution: i used electrical tape to wrap the latch. This caused the rear seat to be latch much tighter in place. Had a test drive for a few days. The irritating sound never came back!! There are definitely some rattling/knocking noise within the cabin which are inevitable. But this was just too loud and way beyond my acceptable threshold. For those that have the same irritating noise/sound, you may want to give it a try. Cheers!

    Door Projector Lights, high intensity and very well defined projected image. Not cheap but worth the extra over the cheaper ones.

    Finally installed the diamond grill on my GLC. Worth every penny and loved the new look. I ordered from Taobao. Paid $380 including shipping.

    My first post here! My GLC 200 is coming in Oct/Nov, and my sales rep told me 2 weeks back that the GLC 200 was available for a test drive, so went down to take a look. You can skip to 4:14 for the start of the car part.

    As I see it, there are no other explanations except that these cars coincidentally ALL have boost issues in their stock condition or dyno has an issue. A very valid question which should be answered here openly for all to understand better.

    Expecting to collect my E250 Avantgarde next month, so started thinking of some mods. Adding options from C&C has been difficult without drastically affecting delivery date or price. So I've been thinking about what mods are achievable after market, and at cost efficiency. I'm listing down some possibilities here to share, and appreciate suggestions and comments: 1) Rims. Stock is 18", staggered. Would be nice to change to at least 19". 2) Night Package. A nice mod for light coloured cars. Can be achieved with stickers or spray paint. 3) Bodykits. AMG Line? E63? 4) Boot spoilers 5) Roof spoilers 6) Air filter. K&N reusable filters are normally the goto filter for most cars. But there has been some not so satisfactory reviews on the use of K&N in W213. Perhaps wait for more experiences. 7) Steering wheel. Change to AMG flat bottom. Note that you need to get the ones with airbag. The airbag in the stock steering wheel cannot be reused. 8) Air Balance Package. Elebest says they can do this. 9) AMG sports pedal 10) Burmester speaker cover 11) BBK 12) Lowering springs, if you find your ride not low enough 13) Tyres, if you dislike harsh run-flats 14) Side mirror covers, such as the CF ones for E63 15) Door pin. These comes in aluminium only for the Exclusive. For Avantgarde and AMG Line, its black plastic. You can change these to aluminium, or AMG ones, if you fancy. Apparently, the door pins on W213 can just be screwed off without removing door panels (even for the rear door). I'm skipping performance mods like ECU tunes for now, since our understanding of the engines is still rather immature.

    Did not expect I would change my W212 so quickly...thought i would drive it for 20 yrs or more. But in the end, took the plunge as the color i wanted was available. This will be a keeper and I’ll be even happier to drive it for 20 yrs or more. 151. Pagoda - FL W212 E200 E Edition W213 E250 AVG

    How to remove and install the door lock pins yourself. Applies to most if not all Mercedes car models. 1. Tools and material - replacement door lock pins (make sure they are the correct dimensions and length) - claw wrench - rag 2. Original plastic door lock pin, make sure it is in unlocked postion. Retract your windows fully to prevent accidental damage from the wrench action. 3. Using the rag to protect the relatively soft plastic door pin, grab the pin firmly with the claw wrench and twist it in anti-clockwise direction. 4. How the removed plastic door lock pin and the anchoring screw stub looks like. 5. Installation of the stainless steel door pins are simply twisting them in clockwise direction till they are finger tight. I don't find any good reason to make them tighter than that. Unlocked position: Locked position:

    Black hood mercedes badge. Very good quality copy. Fits perfectly.
  22. 2 likes
    Just did a swap of my hood badge for the black one to match with my black rim caps. 1. Preparation: - 3M Painter's Tape to protect your paintwork. - trim removal tool (not too big as you want the pry edge to be as narrow as possible to get under the tight fitted badge) - rag for cleaning up finger prints and the dirt under the original badge. - of course the badge you want to swap for. Make sure is the correct model. Note the 2 pins in vertical alignment. Some are horizontal. 2. Paste the 3M Painter's Tape around the hood badge as close to the edge as possible. 3. Use your trim removal tool and try to get the narrowest edge underneath the badge. Try all round to find a relatively looser spot. Once you get your tool under, it is very easy to simply wedge the trim removal tool further in. Go all around to ease the badge up without breaking the 2 anchoring pins. 4. Once the badge is removed, you can see the grommets holding the badge pins down. No need to replace these unless they are worn or you have removed the badge forcibly at an awkward angle, damaging them in the process. Clean up the dirt around the area and position your new replacment badge (check and double check the orientation!) before pressing it down. 5. Stand back and admire your handy work!

    W204 "secret" features Saw this in Malaysia forum.. Didnt verify myself and most of it is in our manual (*Copied from : http://www.mbworld.org/forums/c-class-w204/249371-w204-secrets-thread.html *) (*Updated on 090821 for #45*) 1) aux input in glove compartment. 2) aux input is accessed from cd menu (in my non-multimedia pkg). 3) hold alarm on/off pointed at small square on driver's-side door handle to open/close sunroof and windows. 4) power source in glove box is 12v switched (i remember there was some discussion about that). 5) if you have the automatic tranny, push the stick to the left and hold it there, it'll downshift to the gear lowest possible to allow you to be in the powerband to pass cars. And pushing the stick to the right side and hold it there will put you back into the normal automatic shifting mode. 6) Little arrow on the fuel gauge points to the side of the car that the fuel filler is on. 7) there is a way to reset your service indicators and other lighting options by pressing the OK and TALK button I believe. 8) badges in back leave no holes except for the star. (???) 9) A slight tap of up or down on the turn signal tree allows the turn signal to flash 3-4 times for a lane change and then shuts off automatically. No need to full engage the turn signal and shut it off manually. 10) Steps to Reset the TCU. Resetting the TCU will reset transmission to factory shift points and the car will 'relearn' your driving style. (a.) Turn the ignition key to the on (not start) position. (b.) Press the gas pedal to the floor and hold for five seconds. (c.) Turn the key to the "off" position (don't remove the key), then release the gas pedal. (d.) Wait at least two minutes for TCU to reset. 11) brake rotors stay at peak efficiency from feathering initiated after a certain number of windshield wipes during rain. 12) headlamp cleaners activate every 10 windshield washes. 13) when the sun / Pano roof is left open on an extremely hot sunny day, the car will automatically close it (tilt position) after a while ( when the car is parked) (euro p2 version only) 14) again if the car is equipped with Sun/Pano roof as well as rain sensing wipers, the car will again close (tilt position) the roof as soon as the sensors detect rain ( when the car is parked ) (possible euro p2 only) 15) PRE-SAFE system, which automatically closes open windows, sunroof, and move the seats, headrest + steering wheel to a more protective position - all done within milliseconds as soon as the car senses that an accident is imminent. This is the 2nd stage of pro-safe. First stage is the passive pre-emptive measure, like ESP etc. The 3rd stage is post an accident, which includes automatice shut down of engine and cutting off fuel supply + turning on hazards lights + lowering windows slightly + unlocking all doors. 16) rollbackassist : if i am on steep hills, i notice a roll back assist engages. I think it might happen if i press down on the brakes a bit harder. Release and the car holds itself for a few seconds before rolling back. Works Great! 17) autosense wipers that actually work! 18) on the cruise control stalk: If you push the stalk all the way up, it will increase the speed to the next 5mph increment (ie 52 goes to 55). If you push it down it will decrease the speed to the next 5mph increment (ie 58 goes to 55). 19) this is not somthing you can controll but the new W204 also has vents behind the rear wheels that exit out of the tail lights to keep them clean but more inportantly helps to give the car an overall drag coeffienecy of ONLY .29 20) with the MM the stereos volume will raise if you enter an area with loud noise. 21) If you have the transmission in C, and you punch off the line hard, it uses 1st gear, not second. 22) Leave your headlights in Auto mode & the parking lights & fogs will remain lit when you arm or disarm your car when it is dark. 23) Little arrow on the fuel gauge points to the side of the car that the fuel filler is on. 24) While listening to a cd, the music register or satelite radio, we all know that sometimes you can't read the full title of the song playing. Just press the # button on the dash and you will see the full title and the artist. 25) * key will allow you to jump to a specific track or radio station 26) If you have previously engaged your cruise control at lets say 70mph and are off cruse control but want to reset it to your current speed, raise the cruise control lever to the up position. This will reset it to your current speed where if you pulled the lever towards you, you'll be returned to the previous set speed. 27) slight tap on blinker gives a short 3 blinks for lane changes 28) if you use two fingers you can do all fore windows at the same time, up or down. 29) when the trunk is up and you're still in the driver's seat, you can see out the back, through the center mirror. The hinge lifts up and away, letting you see oncoming traffic before you open the door. 30) Auto dimming mirrors get light when in reverse. 31) dial mounted on the center console will not allow you to change stations or functions display unit unless the hood is raised. 32) In autos, u dont have to turn the ignition key all the way to start the vehicle. in other words, car can start before u complete the turn of the key. Also the car won’t let you re-try the ignition if the car is already on. 33) hood can be pushed up to 90 degrees while open 34) Discovered this feature yesterday. I had the wipers on permanent, not auto intermittent. When I stopped at a traffic light, rather than continuing on wiping permanently, it went into auto intermitent mode by itself. Then as soon as I started driving again, it reverted back to permanent wiping. 35) Wipers, will auto stop when the car stops, then resume when you start driving, with an occasional wipe as needed. This functions works in any mode you have your wipers on. It is dependent on how much it is raining. If it is raining alot dont expect them to stop. 36) Also when you are going down hill with your foot off the gas or on the brake, the car will shift down the tranny so you will have more controll and power to the wheels if you need it. 37) you only get the beep beep beep on the alarm if you actually have an alarm. otherwise just lights will flash. 38) tilt down mirror won't tilt down if you're backing up quickly 39) tunnel mode is available on the 2009 w204 (hold down air-recirculation button) 40) trunk has emergency release on the inside that stays lit for 60 minutes after closing. 41) To set and activate tilt down mirror when engage reverse gear, put ignition key to position 2, adjust passenger side mirror, press "m" memory button and its done. 42) To open driver's door only - press "lock" and "unlock" at the same time in remote control for 5-6 secs until the red LED blink. Now if you press "unlock", only the driver's door will be unlocked. Press "unlock" again, all other doors will unlock. To cancel the mode, press both "lock" and "unlock" for 5-6 secs until the red LED blick. 43) With key in ignition switch, if you open the driver's door, the rest of the doors will remain locked. 44) You can switch on aircon by pressing the Air-recirculation button (center button of temperature control, driver's side) 45) if you have your wipers on intermittant and you push the wiper stalk in briefly (without triggering the windshield washers), the wipers wipe rapidly 9 times then return to intermittant mode. This is handy when you are driving in light rain and suddenly get splash by passing vehicles.

    Mercedes E250 came by seeking our assistance to diagnose several issues that it was plagued with after it was tuned by another local tuner who has minimal experience with continental makes. Owner claimed he felt that his car actually lost power after the tune. We proceeded to dyno the car with road load simulation and it was making about 171hp and 296nm (at the crank est). We then removed the unichip and ran the car on the Dyno again to measure its stock power. It measured a shocking 173hp & 302nm. It actually made more power and torque without the tune. Here is the graph. After all necessary data was collected, we went on to retune the car. And here is the result. The car gained 18hp and a whopping 45nm extra more torque (at the crank est) over the previous tune. No CEL (check engine light), no DTC (diagnostic trouble codes), no boost cuts, no ECU failures etc. Just a good clean tune with good power delivery across the rev range.

    From what I read, TPMS in overseas GLC has 2 versions 1) TPMS with sensors installed in all 4 wheels that will show individual tire pressure readings on the car display. 2) TPMS without physical wheel sensors. It reads off rotational differences via ABS sensors. Will not have individual tire pressure display. Will only warn you to check your tires if it detects sudden change in single tire pressure relative to the other 3.

    I tried the Armorall Extreme Tyre Shine gel too about 3 weeks ago. I got so annoyed by the juddering after 1 year of ownership. I bot new wipers and it juddered!! So, I changed back to the old wipers and applied only on the part of the blade that touches the windscreen. It has been 3 weeks and still NO more juddering. I cleaned off the oil stains with dish washing liquid and paper towels😁👍

    Hi am new here ....haven't got my ride yet but decided to join the gang here. I have zeroed in on a preowned 2013 E250 Avantgarde and hopefully I can get one with FL. I have been looking at sgcarmart and yet to find a 2013 FL model. could be be that FL was introduced for 2014 models? Sorry, I am a car noob and I am lost with all the Wxxx and the Classic/Elegance/AVG models...... lots of research to do..... Meanwhile, any tips from the gang here will be much appreciated. btw, I have not seen too many maroon colored E250s.....the common colors are Black, white, Dark blue and Silver

    taken from another forum. There is little known detailed information on the PI business. Recently have done some homework and will share with all of you the objective facts. Of course some chaps wont like this post, but it's all about transparency and sharing what I have found in the process of due diligence while considering selecting the next purchase. As long as you know the truthful facts and what they imply - then the potential buyer can make his/her own informed decision on the purchase you are free to spend you hard earned money on PI or AD car as you so wish. PI cars come with factory warranty? - Yes they come with factory warranty provided both the following conditions are met: (1) the PDI (predelivery inspection) is done by an authorised dealer (2) the service schedule is diligently adhered to and the service booklet stamped by an Authorized service center. - With regards to PDI, some official brands in SGP refuse to PDI the cars at all for the PIs. Hence you will see high end PI sports cars (some 911s!) getting the PDI stamp in funny places like perhaps india! strange but true. - Why is the PDI important: this make sure that during the transit and delivery from the factory, the car arrives at the customer in a standard that is fit for purchase by the customer. this does not mean just a wash and polish and stripping off the paint protector plastic. For complex german cars the factory will disable most things in the car and place the car in a "transport mode" - to exit this mode you will need a factory diagnostic tool to enable this change.....you dont simply drive on-and-off the car on a Ro-ro transporter ship....its much more complex than this! PDI is not clear, now i need the service stamps - Even if the PDI is cleared by an authorized dealer now you must collect the service stamps. Most PIs tell you that they have tie ups and you can service you car at ABC & XYZ workshop and get the service book stamped. Obviously none of these are authorized service centers....therefore the stamp is not valid in any sense when presented to the factory for claims. I learnt from the representatives of the brands that this is a must because only the authorized service center is equipped with the tools and knowhow and prior training to work on the vehicle. There are specialized diagnostic computers and software. there are specific 'guided fault finding' protocols, specific repair instructions and manuals. Germans are tight ass engineers - every screw has a torque rating assiged to it and the factory will provide all this info and knowhow to the authorized agent. If the car was cared for by the proper people, then the factory will be in a position to honor the warranty. Was offered all manner of things including up to 5 years warranty from some chap. When I asked if their appointed service center had the knowhow and the proper computers for the diagnostics + electronic repair manuals - the silence was golden! So now you have the proper PDI & service and your gearbox breaks Yes you can claim....but you have to fork out the amount upfront first usually. Here's how it works with an Authorized dealer car: - you blow up the 30 grand double clutch gearbox - car under warranty and properly serviced. - in general, AD will change you gearbox and deal with the factory, the bulk of the claim is transparent to you. even if the factory says no full claim refund the AD will shut up and wont ask you to pay for the difference would they? Here's how it works with the PI car: - blow up the gearbox - parts will be sourced from the AD cos the PI will ultimately go to them for all these big issues. - you pay upfront say $30k cash and wait for the gearbox - then your damage gets assesed, and let say the factory says they will only pay you back $20k. you are 10K out of pocket immediately. - some of the PIs might offer to top up this difference, some not at all, some avoid this topic of conversation - the process is much more difficult and not transparent to you et cetera. a good example is the M3 from a PI. at least PLM still touch it. try bringing a PI 911 to stuggart and you will get a even stiffer answer. Is my PI car brand new? Yes - according to the PI. NO. according to the factory and here is why exactly: The PI will take the car from another country, in the bulk of the cases the car will have to be registered in that country of origin - *this is when the factory warranty starts*. Then the PI imports it and it sits in the showroom locally for say 6 mths. you lose 6 mths from the date registered with the factory. Of course some of the PIs give great service and will still somehow find a way to honor the promised warranty for a given period. this may be performed outside the knowledge of the factory and at the PIs expense. *PI will always tell you that the car is brand new and never registered. Well i have done some detective work and can prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that (almost all) cars are indeed registered in another country before importing to SGP and there is a paper trail to prove it. *please note that this discussion will not entail a car known as a used import. dont even bother with these. when you find out that your OMV is rock bottom low on these classes of PI cars you wont buy them* The only time the car is indeed really not registered is when the PI group themselves are the official Dealer of that particular car in the foreign country. PI cars may not be specific for SGP Tropical Climate. Most of your german autobahn stormers are sourced from europe. they are very likely not topicalized for this region. there are subtle differences for the cars in terms of cooling like additional radiators etc. also there are different states of tuning also for the high performance cars for a hotter climate. when we go into diesel in the future the tuning too will be different for European Diesel vs Diesel meant for countries that have higher sulphur contents et cetera. Let say you have a non tropicalised "bi-turbo tricked out GT bahn stormer cruise missile". Of course if the dammed thing then has an overheating problem here being imported from Europe - the AD sure as hell aint gonna help you. you can see how much trouble this might escalate into. just ask an owner of a certain xxx DTM that is PI. its a 1millon dollar paperweight!:wacky PI cars have lower resale just ask any PI porsche owner or BMW owner what the market sentiment is like for their cars there are more things that i can ramble on about but I will stop here: In Summary when you distill every debated point down one singularity, you have only one issue to deal with when considering buying a car: - it is not about the outright purchase price. you must see it as a TCO event (Total Cost of Ownership). What is your Total Cost of Ownership? What can the AD do for you? good will? longtime customer? etc etc What can the PI offer you in terms of written assurance for the automobile which is probably 2nd most expensive purchase in your life after a house. if you are clear and know, then by all means you are free to spend you hard earned dosh at either for various reasons of your own.
