  1. WTS unused service credits for my Mercedes. Let me know if keen. Can arrange meet up for accessory purchase at Alexandra showroom Cheers
  2. I am selling under local warranty, full set with adjustment tool. Details below. https://www.kwsuspensions.net/products/coilovers/street_comfort Reason for selling is because it is still too hard for me. Installed around April 2018 and clocked about 1,500 km. Paid $2,850 and is willing to let go at a reasonable offer. Looking to close at around $2000. Can deal in person for goods transfer or meet at autovox distributor workshop. You need to check the cost of installation from them. I estimate is around $240 with wheel alignment at auto Kinetics. PM me with offer if keen. Regards

  4. I am at 17", did think of down size to 16" but people thought I was crazy....
  5. Was considering goodyear f1 as3 too but ended up with Conti.
  6. Forgot to share. I bought continental premium contact 6.
  7. 5 months passed, still can't get used to the bumpiness so decided to get all wheels changed to non RFT. On normal roads, seems better but can't quantify the % improvement. On Highway, the ride is noticeably less bumpy. I think this is probably the limit of what softer tyres can do. To really push the envelope, I think replacing stock suspension is the only way. Currently looking at KW Street comfort. In 2018, with new workshop ruling in place, C&C can no longer void warranty for jobs done at 3rd party workshop. I think this would mean that once I get my suspension changed, only that warranty is voided and not my entire car. After all, 3 years? I think it is very unlikely for a suspension to break down and be eligible for in-warranty replacement. Cheers
  8. Merc has loads of features but it is not the most intuitive in terms of ease of use. Hence I had to go back to basic and read their manual. This is an user guide app for Android. I use it primarily on my tablet, very handy. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.daimler.moba.kundenapp.android
  9. Yes, this is correct although I hate and don't use this feature. Just turn your a/c to 18C settings and your start/stop will not even trigger. This is because once stop, the battery cannot sustain the cooling to maintain 18C cabin temperature.
  10. Wow. This is scary. Quick question. 1. Does it happen during cruise, stationary or anytime? 2. If it happens at highway and make you suddenly go so close to car in front, did brake assist kicked in? Fingers crossed. Me month 2 ownership now. Cheers
  11. Latest update. Went to my favorite tyre shop in MacPherson and deflate the tyres and change to nitrogen at the light load settings recommended by MB. The ride comfort was noticeably improved. This will definitely buy me some time before my next change to regular tyres. If you guys are like me, rarely carry full load, give it a shot!
  12. Closed circulation disabled is a built in function and not related to start/stop. It will automatically disabled in about 20-30min after activate depending on cabin oxygen level.
  13. I did a test ride with the technician of CC in my one month old car. He can hear it and to told me is normal engine characteristics sound. DOH...
