I had a Racechip installed 2 months back cos I wasn't used to the slow pickup. The first thing I noticed was that the gears hold longer.  I drive about 60% - 70% on highways and the rest urban.  Just checked my FC today. 9.5l/100km with average speed 26km/h.

 

Racechip is set conservatively as I don't know if there'll be any problems if I tune it too aggressively.  Even with this conservative settings, it's a much better drive.  So far no issues.

 

any fuel savings?

I don't see any change in FC after the Racechip installation. Just feel the car has more torque.

Trawling through my profile, i found this old post, and how time flies because we are now past the 3 year mark and more than 50,000km! Overall i'm happy with the car although my two cents:

In terms of updates/defects:

  • check your seat belt dispenser, it may rub against the upholstery on the B pillar if it does not have the seat belt guard (found only on newer cars). If not, silicon/plastic door sills or edge protectors from Autobacs can also solve the issue. 
  • check your engine mounting before warranty is up, somehow the engine mounts (there are 3 of them) seem to disintegrate rather quickly in some cases. 
  • i noticed that there was always a pool of water under the car, either from air con or coolant, and in my case it was coolant leak, so that was fixed. This can be easier to spot if you are parked facing downhill on a slope. 
  • the only sign of excessive wear in the interior is the parking brake button, which has now become a solid rectangle of light instead of the outline of a P. 
  • had to change the wipers and tried the bosch aerotwin, but it seems to squeak a little more, so stock is still best. 
  • parkassist Parktronic is quite fun when you're trying to parallel park and you have people outside staring at you as your hands are in the air (because you dun care). Also useful after a long journey and you don't feel like parking. =)
  • still in love with the coupe styling (frameless windows) and the rear brake lights
  • installed blackvue starting to have "please check SD card" even tho newly bought and formatted. Rebooting it works though. 
  • changed battery a couple of times. These things don't seem to last in our electricity hungry start-stop car. If you find that your eco mode is not engaging and always on orange, that is your first sign that battery is going to go. second sign (which may not appear) is the engine taking abit longer to start in the morning. 

Things i might do differently if given the chance to do it all over again (aka semula):

  • engine bay heat insulation
  • AMG line
  • night package

All aesthetics and comfort changes. =)

 Just to add a bit more info here about low batt...

The left wing mirror does not auto tilt back fully to memorized position after shifting from R to D....usually stops after 80% .

Park Assist will not work. The sensors will fail to pick up the markers when you position the car for parking. Warning signs will pop up on the dash screen if the batt is really low
