Facelift issues

8 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm new to the forum. Checking with seniors around for advices regarding facelift issues.

Currently bought a used C180k with renewed coe. Recently sent for inspection n surprisingly the car failed the inspection because of the facelifted tail lights.

I've know tat a lot of pfl w204 have already been facelifted to the newer looks. Those tat have replaced the frt bonnet n headlamp as well   How do you all passed the inspection? Especially those who have done the wide body conversion to black series look.

Any idea is the facelift a legal option for w204 model?

Looking forward to the advise cos can't renew the roadtax because of the inspection.

Thanks in advance.

My brother has renewed his 2009 PFL W204 and never has problem during hisannual car inspection.

The only mod on his ride is only the tail lamps

Likewise my friend 2010 E350 PFL C07 (E Coupe) has done a full exterior F L mod has no problem passing his annual car inspection.

Its was sent to bukit batok vicom.

Eventually I bought a used set of PFL tail light to passed the inspection.

But from what I know CnC also did help their customer to do facelift conversion. Wondering how those converted by CnC passed their inspection. I heard from others now they r very strict on facelift conversion.
