    E200 W212
  1. I also need to change my suspension. mileage almost 130k. anyone who can recommend. will appreciate
  2. I also have the same problem with my rear camera with my E212. I know TOMO-CSE Autotrim were the one who install for MB. I will visit them the next few days to check.
  3. After holding off for 6 months, it is time to change my shocks as car is getting a bit hard. My Ride is W212 E200 Year 2011 - Mileage 100KM. To save some cost, Intend to buy from Stockist and get a workshop to do the fitting. Can any bro recommend a reliable workshop.
  4. My ride is W212 E200 -year 2011 with about 80k mileage. Find it a little hard and bumpy during braking. I was quoted by C&C for shock absorbers at $4300.00 c/w GST less 10 to 15% off.
  5. Bro Kellog, Yes I know how you feel. My 4 wheels has many scratches too. First scratch was like a pin to the heart. Anyway, C&C can polish it up like brand new, I think its about $150 per rim. Problem is that you have to leave your car there for at probably for 2 days.
  6. Bro Kellogs, Congrats. Silver and Dark Brown seats is a great combination. Did you choose aluminium trimming?
  7. 7 Gtronic is a great feature but it is inconsistent and problematic. If you do encounter a problem with 7 Gtronic means it is time for you to let go that car. I hope 7 Gtronic Plus will solve all this problems. Guess 9 Gtronic should an be fantastic but most probably will be only in Sin in one and half years time.
  8. Hi Bro Kellogs, It is a transmission problem when the engine loses substantial power. Problem it is intermittent and difficult to pin-point. My car encountered a "Red Warning Light" at the dashboard which I was informed was never encounter by any CHI model.
  9. Congrats Bro on your new ride. I have been driving a 2014 model E200 Elegance for almost 2 months already. It is a loan car from C&C because of the problems I had with my 2 year old E200 CGI. Understand that C&C never encounter a problem like mine in the CGI series before. Still waiting for CC to give me a good trade-in before deciding.
  10. This New 2014 Model 200E/250E Series Merz Car is a great with some good features especially the brake system with hold function. However, the "Economy-Start/Stop feature is really unnecessary and a put-off for me as it is activated by default each time you start the engine. There is a vibration felt each time the RPM returns back to norm start position. You need to press a button to de-activate this feature each time you drive. One of the features missing which I would have liked to see in this car is the "Distronic Plus" feature which I think is not included. I think Merz has replaced it with "Warning Triangle" feature instead. "Distronic Plus" feature is a Fantastic Feature which some older CGI model had. Cheers
  11. Tested the E250 Avantgarde Model last week. Understand that upgrade from E250 Elegance to E250 Avantgrade, there is a 10K price difference. You get different Front grills, 3 spook steering wheel, Tyres are 245/40/18 & 265/40/18, Intelligent lights & Suspension should be about 1.5cm lower. After paying so much for this car, I would go for the Avantgrade if I could afford it too.
  12. You are spot on. Gone are the days when you have knowlegeable SA's. These SA are all now very mechanical. Probably too many Merz cars on the road for them to service. Seems like the CGI series has quite a bit of electronical problems.
  13. Yes, agreed it is massive depreciation for driving about 2yrs. Problem is I don't really have an alternative as my car performance is really really poor and I have totally lost confidence.
  14. The major problem is the transmission amongst other issues. Seems that the tuning is not consistent. Been to C&C on several occasions to rectify this issue but each and every time they have informed me that it was within specs. Recently, they did a software update and car performed well. However, after 2 weeks the problem started again and then an "Red alert symbol" appeared on the dashboard.
