    B 180 W246
  1. Good to know sometimes workshops just press reset which kills the message but that doesn’t fix the underlying issue.
  2. So what was spoilt? The DCT clutch?
  3. Has anyone changed their wipers or tires outside? Any recommendations? Thanks!
  4. Have you taken delivery bro, I posted about the delivery process previously... cheers
  5. Why don’t you just wait for the car to alert you? The alert comes at one year or so, or at 15000 whichever comes first. Cheers
  6. Bro, it's not a facelift. The older model was the W245, and the 2011 onwards B180 was the W246. It's totally new car from ground up. In 2015, a facelift model came out.. You can ask YOM, or simply look at the car bro.. The facelift version has a new grille, new spoilers, and the rear treatment is quite different too.. That new ECO mode in the post 2015 has it's pro and cons.. sure the FC may be better, but it is achieved by going into a 'coast' mode, where the gear is lifted off... then re-engaged again when you accelerate. Not sure if it's a good idea to coast in neutral, and you keep engaging the gears, which may lead to wear and tear.. Apart from the look, the extra mode, you also get CPA plus, and a new UI screen which is 8" and higher resolution.
  7. Hi bro, You bought a pre facelift 2015 and earlier W246. Sorry no FW..
  8. Bro Since you go to Pandan, can you share or pm the name of a good advisor? The one who served me was rubbish.. thanks!
  9. What issues bro?
  10. You know, everything you get onto the road, I see at least one W246 or more.. that's how many we have in SG...
  11. There was no slot until the first week of June, so I gave them a buzz, left the car with them the whole day and it's sorted. They simply change some cables and fuses, that's what the service guy said..
  12. There's a recall going on for steering column issues.. airbag related.. did anyone get a letter?
  13. Yep tell your service guy. They can reset it and add a new firmware.
  14. Does anyone have a video for changing wipers for the W246? The ones online don't show the same wipers.. Thanks
