  1. Yes it was one off time last time W204 FL comes with command online, my car was late dec 2010. They ask $750 odd last time to update map, then I update it via gentlemen from HK last time I found in this forum for half price just to get the PIN that related to the car VIN. I boy did the update once and never bother with it again. are you still into car audio also I think last time you recommend me to Cartoon Lee new Generation, now getting old ICE mod is already thing in the past.
  2. My previous W204 was comes with command online, it was crap. Map update need to pay every 2 years need to pay. Volvo sensus online on my XC60 was similar to command online but AD giving live time free map update. Actually almost getting Lexus Luxury Hybrid custom indent order including Mark Levinson system, but I get E200 just becuase of logical decision. CnC stock car need to take as it is,
  3. I just booked from CnC E200 to replace my XC60, finally back again to MB family. Confirmed this new E200 doesn't come with mobile phone integration so no Apple Car Play or Android Auto. This older version non MBUX system.
  4. I love MB but owning MB 2 x times almost vomit blood with their service and arrogancy. When my W204 out of warranty I straight away I service it outside. Now eying GLC300 either late this year or next year to replace my XC60 but I will go to PI route, actually XC 60 is really nice car but the new model is MIC big stigma.
  5. The only second time I encounter vibration is when the engine mounting and gearbox mounting need to replaced. But this is constant vibration especially for W204 can be felt at the shifter.
  6. I had this issue with C180 W204 when I fill up with RON 95 Problem gone if fill up with RON98
  7. Brake pads wear depend on the driving style. Based on my experience last with W204 it can last me 60k before alarm comes out but rotor need to be replaced too. Cost 2k in CnC down time 2 days 🖕but my car is already out of warranty so I did it out side with original part. I was shown that the rotor is worn out beyond marking point, so I decided to replace it too total cost 1k for rotor, brake pads and sensor down time 4 hours.
  8. 😀 It's ok. Sold my W204 and now already happily driving Volvo XC60 T5 for past 2 months.
  9. Will getting my new car by end of the month and need to surrender my W204 FL Kompressor, so selling some items before fitted to my C180: Original sport pedal, condition is great but 2 studs on the brake are flatten see pictures $200 (will listen to reasonanble offer) . Will fit all W203 and W204
  10. It's history, interesting yo know also how Mercedes brand derived. Also the MB first car driver is a lady, Karl Benz built for his wife. Never been to any car museum in Japan, I am not sure if they have museum, may be I just don't know. The mb museum gift shop full with AMG/MB tag shirt, cap etc in a fraction price on SG MB boutique. also Metzingen is near Stuttgart for shopping Hugo boss at good price.
  11. Forget BMW Welt, Mercedes Museum is much better. This Tristar brand history is unique and there is dark era during WW2, after this museum visit your will appreciate your merc much more. Stuttgart is 280 km from Munich, I believe day trip to museum from Munich is possible since there is ICE connection. Just take cab from Stuttgart HBF to the museum. Tip to buy DB ticket book 2 weeks in advance and usually it get 50% discount for 1st class, but note this not flexible ticket and need to travel on the train mentioned on the ticket if not conductor will impose additional fee during check.
  12. Anyone has feedback on this car, especially on maintenance? My W204k FL is 4 year old now thinking to change car this year or next. Tested W205 C180 is lovely car but equipment level is sucks big time, I prefer interior than exterior so AMG package is out! Love GLC but out of budget. Checking 3 series but I will wait for their LCi version should becoming soon, I guess. Recently saw XE it's really an eye pleasing car. Thinking may be going for test drive after my Europe trip next week but I need to know how reliable Jag is esspecially the diesel version. Had super bad experience with their
