    Free BUMP for you! I actually downgraded from stock 18" staggered to 17" for a softer ride and cheaper tires. Last week, I came across a bargain that I can't resist. Brand new AMG rims with tires taken off a E200 AMG Line. Car looks much better than 17" softer ride

    Very much depend on your mileage! I sold my PFL Nov 2011 due to the high mileage hitting >190k km in 7.5 years 1. Every 60k km expect to change engine & gear box mountings 2. Timing crank gear happened to me my ride at around 70k km, after changing did not had the problem again. (common issue) 3. Turbo leaking is quite a common issue 4. Gearbox pcba is not a common problem 5. Other wear & tear will be your brake pads/rotors 6. Alternator kaput is also a problem if you've not change yours 7. Ball joints, steering linkages - depending on mileage 8. Wheel bearings depends on mileage As a car gets older with mileage, expect other wear and tear to comes in. eg. engine carbon built up, cooling system - radiator, water pump, fuel pump, starter motor, piston rings, top gasket FC will also likely to increase as compare to a new car. A newer car will definitely has lesser maintenance costs. Old school - Most wear & tear comes around 100k km or 60k miles

    Dear fellow W205 owners, Just to keep you guys noted about my recent experience, with a terrible fuel leak. It started about 2 weeks back, that i notice the presence of fuel (by smell) almost each morning. As i had to rush daily to send the family to school and work.. i only could check after the end of the first commute. Opening up the hood, there is no more fuel smell, used torch to shine onto the undertray and its dry... so i left as it is. just over the weekend, since i had more time in the morning, i started the car, popped the hood and decided to check.... i started to smell the same fuel smell again... so started to shine my torch at the undertray.... i could see a puddle (which i initially tot it was water residue).... Just a min into the engine warming up, i start to see dripping! i immediately headed down to the workshop and have them check the car. Again, because the car has fully warmed up, there was no more leak! trays were just slightly wet and nearly dried up. Workshop then noticed the fuel stains around the high pressure fuel pump, and told me to leave the car overnight so they can check the next morning when the engine is cold again. True enough, they found the source of the leak. the factory clamp on the fuel return hose was not tight enough. After inspecting the hose, they said the hose was good, just the factory clamp wasnt tight enough. So they added another clamp and this fixed the fuel leak. I will monitor for the next few days to see if its really resolved. If you encounter the same issue where you cold start your car, and you smell presence of fuel, please do check for leaks, it can be as simple as checking if your undertray is wet or damp. I have checked that the a/c water drain will not drip at that same spot where the fuel leak is. I attached some pics to show you the leak, and the source of the fuel leak. As there is no modifications made to the fuel delivery of the car, i consider this a production defect from the factory. My car is purchased from PI, and even the PI told me this is not considered as wear and tear, and they will warrant the change of parts if needed. Hope this helps any bros, as fuel leak is a very highly dangerous situation we will want to avoid! IMG_3590.MOV

    Welcome to the forum Patrick / Phioux! Hope you enjoy your stay here. CnC should have the original boot mat for sales. They will exactly fix your boot space like all MBs The price should be around $170. Go over to the Alexandra MB accessories service counter to inquire. If they do not have stock there, they will check with the other branches especially Pandan Loop. If MB Sg has no stock, they will order for you!

    Hahaha! Bosses wanted GLC cos she has driven Prado, Q5 & ML and feel good sitting atas and son wants easy loading for his bowling balls. How she wishes I've the budget for the new GLE....guess I've to work much harder It's Bosses ride as I get to drive only when I return home from Jakarta. Bosses eventually decided on an used 1 yr 8 mths old W213 (Thanks to 1st owner to absorb the very high depreciation costs) When I wanted to buy my car in Jakarta, Lady Boss contemplate between Mitsubishi Pajero Sport or Toyota Fortuner - each cost less than $10k more than our current COE. Boss decided for me to buy Fortuner so bosses get to sit whenever they come to Jakarta

    Was looking at W213 also.. But getting in and out of a saloon is becoming a chore... And also both bosses liked the GLC.. Its a no brainer cos its their daily ride.. Not mine.. Another issue is W213 lousy overtrade.. 5k.. I got 17k for GLC.. Boss wants... Boss gets.. Coolie have to obey

    Waa Ah Bui you still lurking in this forum around like me You lucky! CnC gave you high overtrade for your GLC. When I went back to my old SE for GLC250 quoted me $218K I said I don't want to take loans. Nabeh quoted me very poor overtrade ($2k on top of body value - OMV $59k -high spec with COMAND & Pano Roof & COE$65K ) Timing crank gear, turbo failure (mine leaked oil on to the alternator so alternator up lorry also), 60km engine and gearbox mountings are usual wear & tear for the W212. I did not spent $8k on Turbo but the bill was for $3k+ Mine had gearbox PCB failure & rear shock absorbers changed Wise men think alike We (my Wife & Son) wanted the GLC250 but when they saw & went inside an 1yr 8 mth old CnC W213 E250....chiatlak...but no regrets ....still cheaper than a new CnC GLC250 by nearly $30k if I traded in the W212. I was swept over by the W213 main features over the W212 - a. 1 long digital dashboard (2x 12.3" HD Display) with COMAND NTG5.5 (gotten free 2019 Maps update from CnC) b. Apple Carplay & Android Auto (Finally got Waze, Google Maps, Sportify, etc on the Infotainment Display) Goodbye to phone holder. c. 64 Colors Ambient Lighting (had been yearning to change the PFL W212 single color to FL 3 color ambient lighting) d. 360 deg camera (Helpful but warning tone can be annoying) e. Adaptive Braking Assist System (Some assurance not to rear ending or X Traffic bang people rides or pedestrians) f. Auto Parking Pilot (Much improvement) g. Fold down rear seats (CnC all along did not gave this option for C & E Class - finally they did)

    I don't suggest you do the FL upgrade... I just traded in my 2012 W212 for GLC200... Reason being the Turbo is leaking and my guy told me it will be a min 8K (Just hoist up view) to easily 12K... not fixing it will have me filling 4 ltrs of engine oil every 3 weeks...BTW, my mileage is also very low..7ys only 100K km...Like @Kepiting1sg, I had plans to renew COE once it reaches 10 yrs. But the potential damage could easily reach 20-25K for future issues... Thus I decided to change ride, all thanks to CNC giving me a high overtrade for it. I think you can save up the moolah for future incidents like mine. Spending 8-13K for a already phased out look is not my choice. Just my 2Β’ worth. In the end.. Your car.. Your money... Your choice... CHEERS

    Is your battery & brake pads/rotors warranted by CnC? All these are wear & tear items and are not warranted by CnC unless your battery kaput in less than a year maybe. The recent servicing about, my car went in with ambient light revolving tweeters & air con "turbo grills" They didn't say they will revoke my warranty. If you go remap your car and engine or gear train go up lorry (not likely though) and CnC knows, then what do you think about your car warranty for your engine & gear box. Old saying "Mod Don't Scare! Scare Don't Mode" I've purchased quite a few rides from CnC and never before they wanted to revoke my warranties. I started with a new W203 C180 in 2003 from CnC I put on a full Lorinser Body Kit with Brabus Rims Changed the horrible looking Halogen lamps with Original Hella Xenon from Benzline Put on C230 Supercharger, All Kleemann Piggy Back, Air filter , bigger Fuel Pump, Extractor/Downpipe & Catalytic Converter with LTA approved Lorinser Exhaust (I got the TUV Certifications from Lorinser for LTA) - Work were done by MBM Sent the car in during the warranty period, no one in CnC ever say they will void my car warranty. A few times CEL (aka Check Engine Light) lan lan go back to MBM and definitely not CnC I guess I was young then doing what the folks here like to do i.e to squeeze more HP, Zhng their ride, etc

    Price lah, bro. Only the rich buy things without having to know the price. Anyway, Do try to verify that the mileage is genuine and not tweeted (10 Years car with 120,000km is pretty decent) For a 2019 renewed COE, I would say the price should range about $58 to $63k range, depreciating at about $6K/year. Other than all these, it's condition of the car and if all parts are still in good working condition. And google on the car dealer and check if they are on case trusted and not blacklisted. Ask for test drive and check for warranty coverage period etc; because any repair or replacement later is just equivalent to purchasing the the car at a cost higher. Just standby a few Ks to have some parts replacements. That's the pros and cons of getting a 10 yr old car; you are subjected to much lower depreciation but you are subjected to all the unknown wear and tear of the car. Hope more gurus here can advise you further. Good Luck, Zappee....

    I wanted to share this with fellow owners. I just did the major service, service B, on my W212 E200 at Kee Yong Automotives. I must say they are reasonable and does a good job. My compliments to Dave who communicated with me, I would recommend this workshop for your precious MB car servicing. I changed all my brakes and it definitely cost very much less than C&C. I had compared with other workshops mentioned here including MB Auto Garage in JB. I must say that Kee Yong is reasonable. MB Auto Garage is not cheap and they cost about same as the sg workshops so no reason to go all the way there. In any case Kee Yong gives 6 months warranty for their work. Hope this helps.

    I did my Express Service B for my W213 at about 27k km (30k km servicing) and next servicing will be Service A at around 42k km (45k km) Do the Express Service B for 1 day as it's supposed to be 30k km servicing. Tell the SA to advise you and do not change if a. Need to change battery (do it outside) b. Need to change brake pads and or rotors (do it outside) This's the scope of work they do for Express Service B Prices could defer depending on model

    so here's the quick update after collecting my car. First attached pic with the fuel leak circled in red, is on the stock clamp. Unfortunately the vid file is too large to upload, but basically on startup, the hose immediately got wet and covered with leaking fuel. The issue is not from the hose but from the clamp which is not tight enough. So the workshop replaced this with the screw type clamp. fired up the car and no more leaks. simple fix and lucky to avoid any further issues like accidental fires... will continue to monitor for the coming days.... hopefully this is the end of this particular issue. *fingers crossed*

However lucky i check my repair sheet n bill..found 2 items supposedly under warranty but charged $29 which was to oil and adjust my bonnet coil spring due to alignment issue and got them to waive it..
