  4. Thanks LOS for taking the trouble for such a comprehensive post. some queries? mines a 2011 E250 which have 105 click,I have change almost everything plus walnut blasting as well. but I have reservation abt changing the fuel filter.heard lots of story abt fuel filter & fuel pump,if u change one,u gotta change the other or if no issue dun touch them. i Wan's to ask,what's your opinion on dat & while we are @ it,will u b kind enuff to let me noe the workshop,too? thanks in advance.
  5. Thanks dyeeng much appreciatedđź‘Ť Not realli new to mercs but am rather surprise,the amount of secrecy to all dis info. pm here pm there! c'mon guys? another my points of contention is ppl ask for wshop in the east ,in the west,anywhere NEAR their house! Our merk are all hi powered machine,it will b a joy to swing over to the best recommended ws even to the other side of the. island. we dun visit dis shop every week,every month of coarse ,dis is only my take on proceeding.
  6. Received yr pm thanks but shouldn't all dis b communicated openly,I always loves to explore wshop around zen auto here I come. cheers
  7. Thanks where yr usual w/shop,would u like to point me to the right direction? thanks
  8. Change often eo is good for u,besides feeling good,it's a good ritual . dun believe what u hear,money down the drain,blah blah abt ATF u dun have to change so early ,think abt 60k for w205 . but u can change Say 50ish. i always practise a habit,1 flush & 2 replace. only special gearbox w/shop got dis flushing facilities. anwae mb dun recommend flushing but there again in the early days they says no need to change ATF also,seal for life transmission fluid! OMG u HAVE to use Mercedes Benz atf oil ,ah Kow promo oil for the weekend juzz Wun do.yr 7g tronic got 2 types of mb oil,blue or red,important u used the correct one,dun says shop should noe,u MUST know. normally when changing eo,will try to change all kinds of fluid as well, coolant ,rear shaft oil(rwd)again the feel good factor ,perhaps some peace of mind. but there again dun change doesen't mean road side is littered with broken engine.
  9. I suppose dis kind of thing(s)works all the time. same as yr smart TV @ home. once u pull the trigger u dun check no more. if u check constantly,u only bring heart pain,enjoy yr new toy,anwae,what do u gain by checking? its all cheap thrill. the trick is to do everything , the homework, than research research research. then BANG,done deal. cheers
  10. I keep comming across compressor in dis forum but it's different nowadays. perhaps it's good back than,used to b from circuit Rd now premiere. i live in circuit in the old days but I dun have a merk then. i visited them later when I own my 1st mb ,a w204, then was good,love their DPS oil but his Mechanic quit. ali might b from c&c previously & drives an old mercs ,as a SA but he dun do the work. same here,he's the boss,once his right hand man gone,he's struggling. dats what I notice. and nowadays he take in grab cars service ,not much time & space for our mercedes no more. pretty sad.
  11. What's a B5 service for w204?
  12. U should get it done by now,anwae here's my good x'perience with dis shop. cant seems to find the address & their numbers but if u Wan I can find it somehow. its next to chip soon,the renown mb wshop,some says x'pensive but I think it's alrite,we dun go workshop every month,what. the paint shop ,think is 4 shop before them is good,bloody good,anwae its recommended by cs. Dey got their own paint mixing machine & the first time I visited them,dey takes 1 day to mix my paint cos my pre own w212 was spray before & the shades 're a bit different ,palladium silver. its cny time,I reversed & scratch my bumper,think abt 6" plus 2 other small dings. he says price arnd 89-120 depend on size of coarse.takes abt 1 day or slightly more. what I like is dey groom my whole car after the 3 areas so much so dat I ask for his grooming service. i will definitely go again for any form of repair.
  13. I used to 've a C180 and dis model is mind boggling ,so many models,so many specs. so many to choose from,I was told to pick the 1600 compressor engine. i used for more than 1 year & it was beautiful,my first foray into mercedes and RWD.traded in for a E. change almost everything,shocks(twice!)rims as I says almost........ 1 thing u must do ,reset ecu/tcu its goodđź‘Ť My usual is chip soon from Tampines,many chaps 're from C&CCall & make an appointment,can b crowded@times.Read from many comments dat dey 're pricey well,dun realli compare prices & I dun realli go w/shop every month! dey will b able to advice on mileage maintenance,dey follow mb schedule religiously.Another shop dat I recommend is in Bukit Merah ,not realli a merks specialist but many mb goes there.Got some promo now,3 service package(no deposit)1st one $50 discount from bill,2nd one,pay normal,3rd one FREE,zilch,0 !Pretty good,the only shop I noe who can REPAIRED the s class air shock with some Kit.Recently I decided to change to ATE ceramic pad after doing the research for a Long Long time,well,I'm happi.Guess dats a topic for another day.I always like to try out workshop,my Wife always say u waste money like dat.Bring your own parts might saves u a bit only cos shop dat allows, normally charge higher for labour if u bring in yr own. but its good u compare prices. the w204 is a wonderful car ,see so many on the road & u Wun b surprise many of them owns it since new. if u Wan's to noe the authenticity of the mileage ,juzz call c&c service booking line & quote vehicle number & vin number. tell them u are buying the vehicle & ask when the last time dey 're in the shop plus mileage.arnd12k a year,juzz do the Maths. bear in mind,most mb mileage out there are tweek. enjoy.
  14. Welcome i got a E212 pre face lift with 7g & its a joy. abt the 89k,there's a lot of mercs with tweek mileage,dis is my 4th one I check before committing 2 yrs ago. u should check before putting pen to paper,anwae,call up c&c ,call the booking line & tell them u juzz bought a E & wans to do a oil change & some inspection,asap. while u are it,ask when the last time yr vehicle was in @ service in c&c,dey will tell u date plus mileage when they last touch. generally 15k a year,u do the Maths . while in wshop doing eo change d SA will tell u the fault dey come across brake pad down to 20% ,mounting worn blah blah. dey will annotate in yr bill ,u can use those information to get it repair outside,which u noes is cheaper,much cheaper . i recommend u go agent cos u can update yr car thru their xentry system generally update yr record too. dey bound to have pick up something so u can go outside to sort it out ,places like chip soon or accord in Bukit Merah who got promo now. a package of 3,first service $50 off,think abt 120,second pay normal price,third one FREE. taking over pre own ,first thing u must do is flush the automatic gearbox,than a month later change again the atf.dis is one thing most ppl forget or dun Wan to do cos its costly . back in the old days even mercs says its atf is seal for life. so generally,veri ppl change those. i love the w212 cos it got HEFT,most cars nowadays 're too light or dey drive too light. sorri,get carried away.
