Just toying with the idea of getting a W211 NGT and when time is up, renew COE also. Just getting conflicting views on the NGT pumps.

Some said, if don't use the NGT at all also cannot, might have the engine check lights switch on.

And the NGT pumps is freaking XX.. easily 5 figures and can ONLY be replaced at AD.

By the NGT is " Natural Gas Tech". Also not much service stations have CNG.

Most of us NGT's driver only uses petrol nowaday.

 

Can forget the CNG.

Yeah especially if the car in question has been very reliable. PARF guesstimate 20+K range with an approx $8K in annual depreciation assuming current PQP.

Mine (E230) not due until July 2017.

Will seriously consider to renew COE as it has been a superb ride so far albeit the dreaded 7G Transmission common fault that I experienced just last week .

Wonder what's the PQP gonna be like by then?

My PARF is $20,119.

 

May 2016 - PQP for CatB is $46,048.

 

Total damage : $20,119 + $46,048 = $66,167.

 

Divide by 10 years, so annual depreciation for my E200NGT is $6,616.70 per year.

 

Monthly depreciation is $551.

 

Can consider to renew it ?

Worth it ! Go for it.

 

Considering average Jap car depre. at 10k , means you have extra $3400 to standby for repair every year, which is extremely unlikely to cost so much to repair

i am also thinking of getting a 07 or 08 E200K and renew when the time is up.

 

What is the reliability like for the Kompressor engine?

 

What is the most expansive item that can go wrong for it?

There are afew items that are expensive to replace as those are also considered wear and tear items. 

 

the Cam gears are known to wear out and lose a couple of teeth but the good thing is that the engine will throw out fault codes that tells you that it needs replacing. the timing chain can also get dislodge from the gears and your engine blows up. 

 

Torque converter on the gear box is the next thing that is expensive to replace ( 2k++) 

 

other than that, i feel the w211 is a very built car and built to last.

I think Avantgarde model have xenon headlight, dashboard is white vs black

Also, suspension suppose to be lower

Hi,

What Bro AHYEO meant as White dashboard refer to the speedo and rpm dial background colour and fuel/temp gauge. White instead of black colour. Apart from the above-mentioned, I also observed Avantgarde model has :

1) headlamp washer

2) bluish tinted windows
