  1. Ask yourself this main question... what is your Budget? And move on from there... if you really want to buy a used car like the above mentioned.. get your own workshop to take a good look at it.. never listen to what people say... unless you know your stuff... listen to your workshop.. cos they are the ones fixing your ride once you paid for it... I can intro you to my guy... in AMK..
  2. Get your workshop to take a good look at the calipers... are all the pins holding correctly? Pads can last you at least 30k...
  3. Cycle or own workshop?
  4. 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
  5. 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 2ยข worth. In the end.. Your car.. Your money... Your choice... CHEERS
  6. Dear owner of SFD 11 B... please don't be a CB driver... and do not go around looking for trouble... Cos a lot of times... You really don't know how to handle it when you found it...
  7. https://www.facebook.com/K.Y.C.TyreGarage/ You might wanna consider this for your rubber.... I help reduce the noise for mine.... Just FYI
  8. the E43 is just a 3 Litre ride using the same 9G-tronic gearbox... not the standard 7 speed AMG speedshift DCT.....
  9. i suggest you trade in to the tyre shop....
  10. You stay in the west? There is probably cam shaft issue for engine light and also engine mount or suspension issue for the sound.... You can go to my mechanic in Toh Guan... tell him I sent you... He fixes all my cars issue....
  11. Yes... compressor should work wonders....
  12. Please state is its Replica or Original...
  13. Shops are taking the phone at $400 or less.. and selling at less than $700.... so I think its not wrong to say it's very overpriced... End of the day... willing seller... willing buyer... Good luck to seller...
  14. GLC is 4 months... If you are talking about the Coupe... yes... 9 months...I am a PI owner... so the best I can tell you is... after 3 years the resale price should be less than 10k in difference as compared to AD... A wise man once told me... YOU BUY CHEAP, YOU SELL CHEAP... But for cars... YOU BUY EXPENSIVE... YOU ALSO SELL CHEAP.... LPPL...
  15. You need to ask Dealer... as usual... it all depends on how financially strong the dealers is...
  16. If you had read my post about buying from PI... you will realise that I put the issue on price at No 4.... all because the 3 reasons before that is so much more important than price... one being reputation... and Workshop that covers your warranty... third being you buy the car you see... Many go to AD because of peace of mind when car breaks down... Some PI will give all sorts of excuse when your car does... even though it's not that often... and sometime you have to fork out a lot of money yourself when the PI doesn't want to pay for the repair... Then it all comes to the reputation of the company... I bought my ride from V****r.... the covered the warranty when my car has issue before warranty ends... and paid for the repair... SO do your research....
  17. Let me put it this way... The present E200 at CNC sis selling at 265-270K... while PI is selling at 220-230K.... see the significant price difference??? Read my previous post to understand more about buying form PI....
  18. Like I've said beforehand... You need a min $30K buffer to even think about PI...
  19. I have said many time here about the terms in buying a car from PI.... Hope it does help 1) Reputation of the PI... internet is a good place to source for any complains about PI... ie: CASE ... or issues of non delivery... there is already post of a certain PI that has such issues... so check it out 2) Workshop that does the warranty cover... You won't want your ride serviced by some small time workshop... TRUST ME 3) Always buy what you can see in the showroom, don't be greedy when SE offers you a special price to indent what you want or what you hoped for... You wont know when you will get your ride... If you don't see what you want... PASS 4) Definitely price... PI normally don't bring in A,B or even some C models.... reason being the price difference from AD is not much to entice clients because there is already not much profit... IMHO you would need a buffer of at least $30k to even think of PI So if you find one that ticks all the boxes and ready to jump in... Congrats to you... and enjoy your ride... CHEERS
  20. No.... after 3 years... the difference is maybe a meagre $5K in trade in price.... when your purchase price... as in my case.. is a whopping $55K in difference...
  21. Bro... This is my advice to all PI buyers... All PI cars have better specs than CNC... that's for sure... and you pay almost the same price... But then again... The main issue is to take what they have in the showroom.... NEVER... And I repeat.. NEVER indent thru PI... You will have to wait at least 6-9 Months... And by then if the PI close down... you are on your own....
  22. This piece of crap is not G30.... it's actually a F10 facelift plus facelift plus facelift.... they cannot put such a long name at the boot.. so came out with a crap name G30....
  23. IMHO... E coupe are niche market.... you will buy expensive because dealer will say special car... charge premium... when you sell cheap because dealers will say difficult to dispose.... do your sums.... as long as you are ready to lose 25k min on depreciation... But do remember the New E coupe is already on its way out this year... Do consider properly....
  24. You see it there... means its from them... otherwise its not there.... unless the dealer really go that extra mile to cheat you of that extra 2k.... which is unlikely...
  25. they didnt give you free service credits? Otherwise you can go to MBM at Sin Ming Dr.... Look for Ah Keong.... see what he can do for you....
