  1. Only for w204. Bought $1500. Selling $500. Plug and play, Easy install and remove. Safest and quickest way to add more hp. Test drive available. contact or sms 94515997 reason for selling: going for stage 1 high boost with ALS remapping.
  2. I’m on api too. Can pm me to share your experience in api and why your wife say no?
  3. For bypass, do check if you can remove the car battery and will not affect the bypass. If not, there will be a problem if you change your car battery without supplying a parallel power source, the bypass will be gone and the ESL might revert back to original state.
  4. Interested in the sunshade. Is it the magnetic type?
  5. Latest mod

  7. Bro, is on normal road, drive normal. Only certain area are steep, especially reaching the top. Drive safe.
  8. I hope my experience with my steering lock issue can help others. I'm driving a W204 and my ESL fault started intermittent where it happen once in every few weeks and after afew in /out of keys, it works normal again. Only last few months where it drive me crazy. It happens almost daily and it took me as long as 10 to 15mins to get it to start. And it worried me that i will never get it start again. So i started doing some research and get some quotes on changing the ESL. The cost of changing the ESL turn me off, singapore workshop charges S$1500 to 1800. Malaysia workshop slightly cheaper RM 3800 to 4000. Youtube teaches on how to DIY, just replace the bloody small DC motor which taobao can buy at RMB30 per pc. But anyway, looks simple but complicated for me. So i drop the idea to DIY. Somehow I was blessed that i come across a bodykit shop owner in permas jaya who recommended me his next shop can do the ESL repair, because he has the same issue like me and has done the repair on his W204. The repair cost RM1500 plus another RM50 for wheel alignment and comes with 3 mths warranty. I considered it very cheap compared to changing a brand new S$1500. But the repair takes 2 days, so i enjoy a 1 night stay in JB. Is been 2 days driving, the ESL is working good and strong. Keeping my finger crossed, hope it solved once and for all. if you dun want to spend a bomb in changing the ESL and want a cheap skate method like me, pm me for the workshop address.
