    Been obsessed in finding a solution to this common Mercedes bugbear since 2010 when I first had a C250. Some old timers would have read my thread that I wrote on juddering wipers. Even after changing to a CLA45....the problem still persisted. Went thru many threads on this topic in other Mercedes forums & have done many 'been there tried that' suggestions that were thrown up. I was in the AMG Private Lounge recently & saw some old threads on this topic (2014) when I read an inconspicuous 1 line post by a member. Apparently no one paid any attention to him as there was no follow up on his suggestion. He said that he applied 1 coat of Amour All Tyre Gel on his wipers and that solved his problem for good. I was skeptical, but WTH...I have a Amour All Gel sitting in my garage, why not give it a shot? Instead of 1 coat....I gave it 2 coats (typical kiasu S'porean) It really works! Immediately, the wipers were super smooth. After 3 downpours....it still sweeps smoothly. I have 2 other used sets of aftermarket wipers in my garage which were casted aside as they were juddering just as bad. Applied the gel on them also....voila! It works on them! Amazing solution....go try it! Pls don't ask whether other tyre gel works....you try it & update here. Sharing is caring.

    Hi @vincentwee, I'm sorry that you saw my post as a long advertisement. In fact I have to say I'm a little bemused by your response. My objective of the post was to share with fellow members on the pros, cons and challenges between using piggybacks, loading and custom tuning ECU maps. (And any other hardware mods that could affect the ECU) Partly motivated as well cos I have heard many bros (and maybe sis) complaining about the issues they have faced with piggybacks and simply loading ECU maps from other workshops. Hence I thought it will be good to share my positive experience with Dynotechnica rather than having more peers to go through more painful experiences. I am not trying to convince but merely informing my peers here about tuning workshops. End of the day the decision lies with the car owner. As for your difficulties in understanding of my post, if it is too complicated, I can suggest you to ignore it or try to contact Benny @Dynotechnica to find out more about tuning. He has tuned more luxurious cars like Bentley and beast-mode cars like GTR before so I think a S300 should not be too big of an issue for him. (Best to check with him though.) And I'm pretty sure he will be able to explain much better than me since that's really more of his job than mine. Maybe it's not a question of how it will help a S300 but rather a question of how you want your S300's driving experience to be. I'm sorry again if this reply is too long for you. Perhaps it is in my nature to be longwinded.

    No point worrying about the fuel consumption. How much can it vary? Just drive and enjoy, no point feathering the pedal. Your biggest expense is the annual depreciation (plus insurance, road tax, parking, maintenance, etc) of about, say, $18'000 onwards, depending on which model you buy! That is about $1'500 per month. At $2/litre, that is 750 litres of petrol! Driving too slowly is detrimental to the engine too!

    After researching and reading forums, I've decided to give back to the community after finalling installing ceramic brake pads (ATE on W205) after the warning light/message came on. - they are not expensive - there is no squealing or screeching - lower brake dust have yet to observe as today is day 2 - it does not have the stress sound when half breaking - the braking power is similar to the stock brakes I read that ceramic pads are supposed to be quiter, produce less dust, last longer but wears your rotors faster. Also after the warning light comes on, the old pads still have about 7% left so don't listen to your mechanic to change pads until after the warning lights come on. I did servicing in Oct and they say must change must change and they lasted me four months without issues.

    Hey jtang thank you so much and I even wanna kiss you! I had to register and say something. I live in LA and had exactly the most annoying wiper blades in my car! It was so embarrassed when my friends sitting in my car. How could a premium brand car's wiper blades made such noise! Of course I have seen every post relates to wiper blades on mbworld.org, and also few of the Chinese websites/forums to try to find a solution. As always, nothing really worked, until now! I am so glad I didn't give up searching and I've got lucky enough to see this post! Thank you so so much again jtang, this gel is like a magic. It just made the wiper blades smooth as hell! Jesus this is amazing, it is magic! My 4matic SUV is no more a vehicle that being afraid of the rain and snow! I love you, thank you haha! This solution should be told to all the MB owners all over the world! The wiper blades problem is pretty common in MB cars for sure.

    Key positions: Position 0: when the key is just inserted into the slot without any turning. Position 1: turn the key one click to the right (clockwise). Position 2: turn the key another click to the right (clockwise). This should be the last position before you crank the engine. To confirm that u are in this position, all your dash board warning signs will be displayed like a christmas tree decoration:becky: Position 3: Crank position if u turn the key one more click to the right (clockwise) but note that this position will automatically return to Position 2 once you release the pressure on the key. Reset ECU/TCU steps: 1) Make sure your car is stationary with the engine switched off and key out of the ignition and in your hand 2) sit in the driver seat 3) insert the key into position 0 4) turn the key 2 clicks clockwise to position 2 5) step on the accelerator pedal fully to the floor (until you activate the kickdown button at the end of the pedal travel) and hold for > 5 seconds. Don't need to be exact but I usually wait for about 10 seconds just to be safe.. 6) now with your right foot still fully depressing the accelerator pedal, turn your key counter-clockwise to position 0 and hold for >1 second. I usually hold for 3-5 seconds without any detriment to the effort. 7) now release your right foot from the accelerator. Your key should still be in the ignition hole at position 0. 8) Wait for about 4-6 minutes (the timing have been reported to varies across different models) 9) in the mean time do not touch anything electrical/buttons in the car as the ECU/TCU sort of "reboot". 10) when time is nearly up, listen for a single "tack"-sound coming somewhere from the steering column. That is indication that your reset is successful 11) now take out your key from the ignition hole and you are done. 12) if you want to drive off immediately, still must complete step (11) before re-inserting the key to start your car as usual.After reset, you will notice that your car holds the gear longer as you drive around. Some say drive around your usual style so that it will learn it and adjust to your style optimally. Some say drive it aggressively for 10Km so that it will learn the more aggressive driving shifting and your car will be more responsive. What ever it is....you can try both ways...it's free anyway:bounce:

    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

    It's been a while since I updated the forum on the mods done. Did a modified night package vinyl stickers with matt black stickers for the window frames, roof rails. CF effect stickers for the wing mirrors, front and rear bumper chrome strips, foglamp area vent strips. Removed all the emblems from the rear except for the star. 20" Stance rims in brushed titanium finish staggered. Changed my diamond grille to the GLC 63 style vertical grille.

    We know for sure that all mercedes benz vehicles undergo stringent quality checks in Germany manufacturing workshop. Next someone would need to drive the vehicles up to the Vehicle Trailers to transport to shipment. Another person would also need to drive it to the Vessel before sailing across from Germany to Singapore. Again there will be another person driving the new car from the Vessel to the Holding Bay at Singapore Port & so on and so forth till it reach Singapore C&C Collection Centers. I believe all types of car would go through this same mode. At C&C Collection Center, the C&C Technical Specialists would do another stringent checks within the center but what I understand nobody would test drive each of the new car to ensure it is in tip top condition before delivery to the client. One of the main reasons is that they do not want their staff to test drive the new car to prevent unpleasant incident. So, as clients collect their new cars, they will feedback to C&C any unacceptable quality challenge when one experience it during the course of driving and the reason for giving warranty coverage to iron out any issues. However, through our experience, we have wasted precious ample time & efforts sending our new cars in & out of C&C. As this is the premium car, we would expect nothing less but the best quality in handling over to clients. Wondering if anyone has any better suggestions to C&C to improve on its overall quality standard? My suggestion to the Sales Person is as follows:- 1) I would make myself available once the new car is at the C&C Collection Center & test drive it together with their technical specialist for probably some appropriate distance (5 to 10 km) so that any unwanted noise, unacceptable vibration, none working gadget etc that is physically detected would be rectify by C&C before delivery. 2) Spend sometime with the technical specialist to learn all the necessary controls, tips of maximizing the vehicle. 3) Spend time with the technical specialist to show what are the quality check items. Above suggestions is my own as I have engineering background & proficient in auditing protocols. Any other suggestions &/or thoughts please?

    I had similar issue with my W205. Just like you I tried changed all the battery but in vain. I struggled for 3 days. Here is the trick.( saw how it was done ) Stand beside the driver's side door with your key. Press the door handle than open the door. For some unknown reason everything will be back to normal.

    ...because after trolling the forums for a while now, you guys have poisoned me to such an extent that: 1. I already have a mod wish-list AND a Day-1 mod list, and my SE still can't tell me where the hell my W204 is 2. I know I can ask about everything about my car here and someone will helpfully point me to some workshop that would probably do a great job and suck my wallet dry 3. I am starting to chant "if mod, don't scared. If scared, don't mod" in my sleep, and more importantly to my Minister of Finance. I'm sure a lot of new-comers will have similar findings. Great group, I can't wait to go to my first SGMerc GTG!
