  1. Aliexpress sells the widescreen cockpit but Chinese version only it seems.. Installation of the digital cockpit can be diy'ed if the English/International version can be sourced.
  2. Nice! Looks like the brows on the front headlamps for the GT R, A and CLA are all getting the same fierce look.
  3. Stock MOE RFT from C&C staggered setup for 2.5yrs now with 40K, still have some life on both front tires. Had to change the rear set few months back due to a nail into the edge of sidewall.. So far, the stock RF's have been pretty acceptable to me..
  4. Anyone here tried to diy the TPU clear protective film from Taobao? Does it affect the appearance of the center panel and does it peel after parking in the sun? Thanks
  5. Very nice!. Love the rotary tweeters any time. TMall sells the same stuff, just not sure of quality and who to install in SG.. Eyeing for my E class but will have to check how warranty will be affect w C&C
  6. 40k km, 2.5yo W205. Always hovers around 7 - 8l/100km never above 8. 18" 5 spoke AMG staggered and switch between Caltex and SPC RON95. 75% highway
  7. Turn off A/C about 3-5mins before destination. A habit cultivated after my W205 returns a foul smell few months short of its 2nd year. A chemical cleaning by C&C clears the stench perfectly and till now the car has absolutely no foul smell whatsoever. Thats how I am convinced a minor adjustment of habit helps with this problem,, What is the reason behind your question though?
  8. Thanks Joecamel, yes this is more to ease the manual polishing work. I am thinking to try out cheap palm held models than invest too much at the risk of turning into a white elephant.
  9. As soon as I get the complimentary floormat from C&C (i believe its called the 3D floor mat), I just place them over the stock floor mats from day one. Not sure if that makes sense at all but the 3D keeps visible debris from reaching the surface beneath. What do you folks do otherwise with these many car mats?
  10. I am just curious if anyone uses a portable car polisher and if that really helps than manual polishing by hand and cloth. Manually polishing my W205 now but I am thinking of getting a handheld polisher when the E class arrives..
  11. Alternate between washing the car by myself and at the gas station each month. Polishing and vacuum always by myself after a good wash. Using Meguiar detailer and Amorall wax for exterior and some German technology leathercare treatment agent for seats
  12. Currently on Iridium Silver W205, waiting on delivery of my E200 Selenite Grey in Nov/Dec.. Will post more when i get my hands on the new ride. Love my W205 to the core now..
  13. Thanks Merc888., this is encouraging. I am getting my E200 end of year and currently enjoying my W205 in the last 2.5years with very decent FC of around 7 - 8L/100km on the average. My daily route is halfway across the island on the highway with another 25 - 30% in urban traffic, and am curious how the e200 will perform - not very optimistic with a bigger engine and heavier chassis until I see your post.. Are you usually on Eco mode? Thanks
  14. I was on 98 all the way for my previous ride advised by the manufacturer because it is a turbo charged FSI engine. However, my sales person confirmed 95 is sufficient for the w205 even though it is turbocharged..Btw I have taken 3 more readings and the average consumption is 12.6km per litre. Not too bad as the engine seemed to have run in.
