  1. Depends on the number of stickers you can stick on your car. Stickers on windshield will give you more horses.
  2. Very likely is a converter fault. My friend had the same issue and got his converter replaced under warranty
  3. 1. Apply some lub to the top of the window. Hope this helps
  4. If your intent is just to make polishing easier then the portable ones (assume 12voltd)are ok. For paint correction you will need higher power ones for the speed and you will need proper pads for the task. Also if used incorrectly it may burn the paint.
  5. try to reset transmission http://www.mercedesmedic.com/reset-mercedes-benz-transmission-procedure-instructions/
  6. still has the fugly and old stick a tablet on the dashboard design
  7. How long were you driving for when that prompt came out? I have driven to pagoh on ns hw without being prompted
  8. Cause for me is the windows rubbing against the seal. U can test it by cracking the windows open. If no sound then you should have the same problem as me. Try to apply a little spray wax att the edge of the window. It should work for about a week. Take it as part of your car wash routine. Brought it in to cnc 3 times still not solved.
  9. Might be caused by carpets and seats. Try wet vacuum and interior detailing.
  10. thing is that when air circulation is off, fresh air in here is warm, increases AC workload.
  11. any experience with the puncture prevention coating? am thinking of changing to normal tyres too.
  12. Have read thru the manual. But cannot find the button. Gueas car not equipped with this feature but cabin still feels warm.
  13. used to have this issue, disabled the auto start-stop and smell beginning to go away. when the engine stops, the ac capacity decreases, resulting in condensation which may lead to mold in the ac vents. also try to park car in a well ventilated place too, like someone mentioned earlier. dont know why car seems to trap moisture. try to drive car w windows down and ac on and temp set to hi for about 10 minutes on the expressway to help eliminate the smell. hope this helps.
  14. Changing to coil overs sounds extreme and may not really improve ride quality imho. Perhaps the way to better ride quality may be to downside the rims and get higher profile tires.
  15. Not sure if this is related, the engine fan runs at full speed for about 15 seconds after i shut down the engine. Maybe its pushing the warm moist air into the cabin.
  16. did you notice any water leaking from the car after you topped up?
  17. think the water tank is rather large, how much did you pour in?
  18. Same issue on w205 as well.will raise during my next service and share resolutions if any
  19. wow, looks bad 3 methods, from the conventional to extreme! Method A: have experienced good results from this Things you need microfiber clotheX2 rubbing compound, ! used meguiars ultimate compound 1. clean the affected chrome parts 2. TAPE OFF THE PAINTED AREAS, leaving the chrome parts exposed as compounding will remove you sealant/wax 3. apply the rubbing compound and buff with some strength the affected areas, small sections, dont allow the rubbing compound to dry 4. wipe off with the other microfiber cloth. if the dullness fades, repeat step 3 and 4 till satisfied Method B: have tried this on the taps at home Things you need microfiber clotheX2 Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) 95%, can get from most pharmacies (some say use girlfriend's nail polish remover also can but i havent tried) 1. clean the affected chrome parts 2. TAPE OFF THE PAINTED AREAS, leaving the chrome parts exposed to prevent damaging your paint work 3. apply the toothpaste and buff with some strength the affected areas, small sections 4. wipe off with the other microfiber cloth. if the dullness dullness fades, repeat step 3 and 4 till satisfied Method C: this is extreme. try at your own risk. have seen it work on rusted bike parts Things you need Cola (low sugar content) aluminum foil 1. clean the affected chrome parts 2. TAPE OFF THE PAINTED AREAS, leaving the chrome parts exposed to prevent scratching your paint work 3. pour coke to the affected areas 4. bunch up the aluminum foil and rub the affected areas 5. pour remaining coke into cup and enjoy the shine when completed if the dullness fades, repeat step 3 and 4 till satisfied good luck and share results
  20. Pls post pic so that we can tell what can be done to help. Im general, a polish should be able to remove common defects. If using non automotive polish ,tape up the paint work near the chrome strips to avoid it getting on the paint work
