C200 AMG Rims and Wrapping of Console

12 posts in this topic

Hi Merc Forum!

Just got myself a preowned c200 w205. 

Got a few questions for you guys here. 

1. I like to change my rims to the AMG 5 spoke rims. Is replica rims OK or better to go for genuine ones? 

2. Should I go for 18 of 19? Will it affect the petrol consumption? Or negligable?

3. Can I mix around Ron 95 - Ron 98 between refuel? Like this time pump 95. Then next refuel pump 98?

4. Any recommendations for shops to wrap my center console? Don't really like the glossy plastic. 

 

Thanks in advance. 

:)

1) got money, buy legit forged from approved / famouse workshop

if not so much money, get flow forming (conti brands - made in europe)

if less money, get those (made in taiwan / china) but still "branded"

if no money, stay stock - get better tyres

2) yes will affect, 18 /19 , traditional tyres vs RFT, also the width of your tyre affect

3) realistic 95 is good enough, but most pump 98. 

quite a big debate, SPC 98 vs Shell 95 / Esso equvialent . i will take SPC 98 over 95. that is my 69 cents though.

more importantly get the correct credit card / petrol station discount card - do your homework

4) quite a few workshop - just see their FB pics - alternative come to SGMERC MU, quite a few bros, zhng . u can see first hand ....

Ok, collecting my ride on thursday, will go take a look. Hopefully there's a few preowned AMG Authentic rims for sale.

then probably for 18 inch.

Yeap, that's what i have heard, most pump 98. Coming from my previous ride of mazda 3, might just test both RON to see what's the difference

ok! will come join if i can make it for the meet up. was thinking of changing to wood console by benzline.

Hi,

Thanks.
