Its a carbon-fibre stick-on, so no need to replace anything.

Not exactly... u have to use the Other selection From Reset... to actually see what u are achieving for one tank of fuel till reserve tank. 

Mine is 250d... im averaging ard 650km per tank avg speed 20km/h using Comfort mode with 20inch AMG rims.... my frens averaging ard 850km/tank with 19in rims and 1 guy did 925km/tank on ECO mode with 19in rims... of coz their avg speed is higher.IMG-20170706-WA0007.thumb.jpg.a9b1435338ea2c0702e79c2500bd050f.jpg

I did some read up on these air valve caps and their effect on TPMS internal sensors. Corrosion due to the material used for the special valves with these aluminum valve caps are top issues overseas but that is also partly because they have snow and salt on their wheels once a year.

Another school of thought is that the special TPMS air valves acts as an antennae to allow the communication of the internally mounted sensors with the vehicular body TPMS control unit. so putting an aluminum cap might mess with the signal.

I keep my dull grey plastic caps on despite it being an eyesore..LOL

Thanks for the info man! Never knew there were such issues...  I'll see if C&C sells the metal ones with the chrome plated and ABS interior. Those are supposed to work fine. ^_^

Neodymium magnetic sunshades for all the windows. They have the 9 pc (including rear windscreen) or 8 pc (just the side windows) set.

But for the 4 windows, you need to stick 2 metal pieces at the top of each window. Pretty useful so far! :)

Was considering also the black and red/black, but these suit black rims better in my opinion...

Seems more efficient now after running in the engine for the past 3000km.

Getting 614km with 2 bars left on the petrol gauge. Fuel consumption @ 9.4l/100km. Not bad in my opinion! :)
