  1. you went back to C&C, so assuming you have warranty? the price is rather high just to fix this (but guess that's just how they charge.... 10% part, 200% labor and misc.. LOL). there are more proficient merc workshops around now...
  2. if local, usually from PAS Auto... Else online, i get from ebay/Amazon/online stores in Australia, Japan, US, Europe....
  3. it really depends on the current wheels you are on (the width and offset). You can do a rough measure from the centre of the rim to where your fender edge is and see if 20mm is indeed okay or not. i went previously with 12mm spacers to have them seated just slightly inwards from the fender edge (to avoid any unnecessary fender rub). Wheels were the AMG Line 18". W205 Sedan.
  4. it can happen to just about any car that runs on direct fuel injection (having a high pressure fuel pump in the engine bay). Just occasionally at cold start, open up the bonnet and check (through smell) if there is presence of fuel. Good checking habits (just like checking oil and coolant levels, temps) will ensure a good running and healthy vehicle.
  5. yes it is possible, you can choose between both setups.... quite a number of variants/shops for you to choose from for the hybrid turbo...
  6. Hi, i would like to check with the new owners of the facelifted C200 (1.5T) versions, if any of you can advice on the turbo model/part number? thank you!
  7. i asked seller which you linked to RHD and they mentioned they are all LHD.
  8. The last photo where i circled shows where the high pressure fuel pump is, which the metal cover sits over. The hoses can be located below. The one you circled with the zip tie, thats the electrical connector to the pump.
  9. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000001997476.html?spm=a2g0s.8937460.0.0.66122e0eaJkzNb It's sgd195 in aliexpress.
  10. You can fully open, just need more prying. on the right side of the intake box are 2 hinges, the top cover can be unlatched from there. (not needed for changing the filter, but if you want to vacuum the box this provides more clearance.
  11. Loosening the clamp of the turbo inlet hose to the top cover may help a little. But you won't be able to remove the top cover fully. Just pry it open enough to slide the filter in and out.
  12. Using the 255/40 over the 245/40, you will get a pretty straight looking sidewall as opposed to a rounded one. For wheel spacers, most will advise you not to use it as it may create issues like vibrations... but if you intend to, look for hub-centric ones. the thinest hub centric spacer should be 12mm. I would not advise doing both. using a 12mm spacer to protrude the wheel and using 255/40 which straightens the sidewall, you may encounter fender rubbing.
  13. yes, all is good. been monitoring since March 4th, no fuel smell in engine bay. Had the car sitting for a whole week as well, restarted (no fuel smell)..... after a short drive, still no fuel smell... so all is good!
  14. quite curious bro, on your list of mods and where you tuned/dyno your ride. care to share via pm? thanks...
  15. yours should be the 7G transmission, you will need about 7L, plus the trans filter and tray gasket.
  16. well, just keep to the blue coolant that you poured in for now. wait till the next time if u need to do any fluid change, then switch over to the pink one.
  17. no, its the pink colored coolant. it is classified as Specification 325.5, while the older blue colored coolant is 325.0 The part number for the coolant is A000989282509. You can get this from the stockist.
  18. Hi All, I am selling my W205 AMG Line 4 pot front brake kit. Whole set comes with Calipers/rotors/pads/brake lines. Direct fit to C180 and C200 non amg line models, and a fantastic upgrade for better braking! $1600. PM to discuss further. *sorry for the dark pictures, its due to the home orange lights*
  19. so here's the quick update after collecting my car. First attached pic with the fuel leak circled in red, is on the stock clamp. Unfortunately the vid file is too large to upload, but basically on startup, the hose immediately got wet and covered with leaking fuel. The issue is not from the hose but from the clamp which is not tight enough. So the workshop replaced this with the screw type clamp. fired up the car and no more leaks. simple fix and lucky to avoid any further issues like accidental fires... will continue to monitor for the coming days.... hopefully this i
  20. Dear fellow W205 owners, Just to keep you guys noted about my recent experience, with a terrible fuel leak. It started about 2 weeks back, that i notice the presence of fuel (by smell) almost each morning. As i had to rush daily to send the family to school and work.. i only could check after the end of the first commute. Opening up the hood, there is no more fuel smell, used torch to shine onto the undertray and its dry... so i left as it is. just over the weekend, since i had more time in the morning, i started the car, popped the hood and decided to check.... i st
  21. that bro, is also a coolant top up, but specifically for the turbo and intercooler cooling. there is a new revision to the setup in the W205, the newer version only has one now.... see my engine bay pic attached.
