  1. Hello, newbie here. I recently picked up a 1997 Mercedes Benz 230E and drive it sparingly for perhaps only about one weekend a month. Given that mileage accrual is low, it may take some time before it hits the mechanic’s recommended mileage for the next servicing. That is, it may take about 2 years or even more. The last service was in April 2018. It has still not reached the indicated mileage. My question is: should I send the car for servicing at a frequency based on time lapse since the last servicinginstead of based on mileage accrual? If so, what is the recommended or maximum time I should allow, before bringing the car for its next servicing? I was told the interval should not be more than a year, is this correct?Thank you in advance!
  2. Hi guys ,i am new to the community. My name is Jeffrey, 19 years old and currently driving a 2008 Mercedes E230 W211 . My hobby is researching and taking photos of cars! Hope to meet new people here who shares the same interest in cars! Here are some of my best shots of my W211 E230! Looking foward to sociallising with you all and your meet ups!
  3. Hi everyone, Recently (around 4 months?) my W211 have been popping out with problems after problems. Initially was loud humming sound when accelerating on low RPM, error signs appearing on dash and i actually thought it wont be affecting my drive so no action was taken . Until this week, the car begin to jerk/vibrate (also only low RPM) and noticed a decrease in performance, very unresponsive in throttle. Visited workshop and was asked to do a gearbox overhaul (also means no car for 4 days ) and some other replacement as priced below: Gear box overhaul $4000 Spark Plug $25 x 4 = $100 Ignition coil $125 x 6 I guess old car = more problems is true I have been visiting workshop several times from the start of the chain but was reluctant as I only have 1yr 4m more to drive it, car will be going to scrapyard afterall (always hesitating whether its worth to spend this money on a 9yo car), but now I'm getting worried it might not last until then. I even checked with scrapyard and was offered $5000 for a used gearbox (was expecting less though) Not an expert or experienced in merc but is the price quoted reasonable? Repair or scrap? Workshop recommendations are welcomed too. Open to suggestions
