  1. Just to add a bit more info here about low batt... The left wing mirror does not auto tilt back fully to memorized position after shifting from R to D....usually stops after 80% . Park Assist will not work. The sensors will fail to pick up the markers when you position the car for parking. Warning signs will pop up on the dash screen if the batt is really low
  2. I have used & tried many types of aftermarket performance air filters for all my rides over many years. Bear in mind that most of them are oil based filters that can be washed & re-oiled except for Hurricane. Don't want to denigrate any particular brands, I find that BMC is the best performer....
  3. For BMC....look for Benzline. I highly recommend BMC....forget about K&N.
  4. Try to reset the TCU (transmission control unit). Should solve the problem. Watch this....
  5. Are you referring to the down shift gear shock when it kicks down from 2 to 1? Or are you referring to the throttle lift off jerk at low gear? Btw, has your car been tuned by some piggyback or remapped by a tuner?
  6. Generally speaking...RON 95 is sufficient for Merc cars...incl W204. I don't intend to speak ill of oil companies, but sometimes I have my suspicion that particular day in that particular station somehow the petrol could be tainted with lower RON.....particularly in our neighboring country. So yes...j88 suggestion of using RON98 is a good idea, even better if you alternate the 95 & 98 or stay 98 all the way.
  7. Go to Autobacs.
  8. Go buy an original aux batt from Goldenlink. Bought mine for $170. Then carry it to your favorite car workshop to install...just pay labour fee. The batt is under & behind the glove compartment
  9. It's on the cruise control stalk. Press inward.
  10. Hi Leslie....is this the car's inaugural (1st) service? The original factory oil for all AMG cars is Petronas Syntium. If you are anal about this, you can buy it at JB. Otherwise, Mobil 1 0W-40 will suffice. If not, just make sure that the other EO has the approved rating of MB 229.5 & 229.51.
  11. How old & what's the mileage of your car? If it's 3 yrs or older & mileage is about 50k km....check your engine & GB mounts. They need to be replaced.
  12. Can't open the link bro.... Anyway, one can recondition a car batt with CTEK batt charger at home. All u need is a power socket.
  13. Why sell so fast? Lol...
