  1. 😀 It's ok. Sold my W204 and now already happily driving Volvo XC60 T5 for past 2 months.
  2. ........................
  3. Will getting my new car by end of the month and need to surrender my W204 FL Kompressor, so selling some items before fitted to my C180: Original sport pedal, condition is great but 2 studs on the brake are flatten see pictures $200 (will listen to reasonanble offer) . Will fit all W203 and W204
  4. Ready stock or indent? Got discount from their advertised price? Thx
  5. It's history, interesting yo know also how Mercedes brand derived. Also the MB first car driver is a lady, Karl Benz built for his wife. Never been to any car museum in Japan, I am not sure if they have museum, may be I just don't know. The mb museum gift shop full with AMG/MB tag shirt, cap etc in a fraction price on SG MB boutique. also Metzingen is near Stuttgart for shopping Hugo boss at good price.
  6. Forget BMW Welt, Mercedes Museum is much better. This Tristar brand history is unique and there is dark era during WW2, after this museum visit your will appreciate your merc much more. Stuttgart is 280 km from Munich, I believe day trip to museum from Munich is possible since there is ICE connection. Just take cab from Stuttgart HBF to the museum. Tip to buy DB ticket book 2 weeks in advance and usually it get 50% discount for 1st class, but note this not flexible ticket and need to travel on the train mentioned on the ticket if not conductor will impose additional fee during check.
  7. Anyone has feedback on this car, especially on maintenance? My W204k FL is 4 year old now thinking to change car this year or next. Tested W205 C180 is lovely car but equipment level is sucks big time, I prefer interior than exterior so AMG package is out! Love GLC but out of budget. Checking 3 series but I will wait for their LCi version should becoming soon, I guess. Recently saw XE it's really an eye pleasing car. Thinking may be going for test drive after my Europe trip next week but I need to know how reliable Jag is esspecially the diesel version. Had super bad experience with their dealer for kangoo euro van last time, that leaves bitter taste until now.
  8. Good customer service at GEOX Wien on March trip, changed to correct size even after more than one month date of purchase without question asked.
  9. Yes noted, actually showroom charges increased a lot compared to 3-4 years ago may be due to lower sales volume but it's hard to swallow if depreciation almost 30% is due showroom profit margin.
  10. Distributor/Agent always win, I own 2012 C180K COE $55k I calculated last time showroom made $30 plus from my car with my car, dep at $13.5k plus. But last time I ask W205 show room made more than $40k COE at $60k, dep close to $17k. That's why for next car I am considering to get from PI for my next car to lessen the premium charged by distributor/agent. This just personal opinion with rough calculation. .
  11. It just marketing ploy, I am sorry I don't believe this kind superior complex issue being inspected by German technician. If Local agent service is good local senior service man should be as good their German counter part. If not it's major failure in their training system, or the local service guys working there are clowns. Disclaimer: this is just my personal opinion not to flame anyone. It's your moolah and I don't have any authority to tell anyone on how to spent their hard earned moolah.
  12. I always sent my car to CnC but this year I was totally put off. I took me 3 calls plus tai chi here and there just to know how much to change brake pads and rotor. Then I contact to Chip Soon, call get the price then go there within less than 2 hours I drive with new set of brake pads and rotor, and a happy customer. So for my 60k service I also went to Chip Soon.....service clinic mailer sent to me goes to rubbish bin!
  13. Sold
  14. I am driving W204 1.6l compressor, just be realistic this 1.6l engined C (180) class only for Singapore and India market. Anywhere you go minimum C200 with 184 horse power engine. My germany colleague laughed at my puny engine W204 with price tag for C350 in German. This is the price we pay for owning basic model merc in SG.
