    Tyres

    I need some for my C220 CDI. Always gone for Michelin or Goodyears but given the fact this is a derv I'm going to go for the Dunlop Sportmaxx RT2's. They are the cheapest premium tyre, good fuel economy rating and should last longest too.

    W204 C220 CDI Engine Warm Up Time

    Yes, tend to agree. What did the above cost if you don't mind me asking? I've done thermostats and water pumps on various cars before but can't find any DIY on the OM651 engine.

    W204 C220 CDI Engine Warm Up Time

    Its done 106k now. Just found it odd that once its at 90 it stays there. Other car's I've had with knackered stats either wont get to temp, or get there in traffic and then drop back down when moving.

    W204 C220 CDI Engine Warm Up Time

    Hi all. I've noticed my C220 CDI takes a long time to warm up. I timed it on a run this morning and it was 25 minutes before it reached 90 degrees. That journey time included a lot of NSL driving, although I was pottering. Its not really cold here (7 degrees) and once it got to 90 it didn't...

    C204 Auxiliary Battery

    Yes they are 12v but as far as I know when it gets down to 12v they are usually dead. 12.7v Is the normal figure anything below this means it needs charging, hence why mine is hooked up now.

    C204 Auxiliary Battery

    Interesting. Well the main battery was a bit low on voltage so is being charged now so I may as well see if that gets it working properly. If not I guess I will need to look at the aux battery again! I did find it odd that it worked again very briefly today. Only reason I can think why is I...

    C204 Auxiliary Battery

    Main battery is only showing 12.25V though. Could this be the culprit. Does anyone know if you can charge these sorts of battery? I've a knock off ctek charger I bought from Lidl a few years ago.

    C204 Auxiliary Battery

    Got the battery out now and checked the voltage which is showing 13.12V It's the original by the looks of it. The stop start has worked once the morning, oddly right at the start of a journey and then after that the eco went yellow and it hasnt worked since. I'm a little stumped now. Any...

    18" Amg Wheels Anyone want a swap?

    Thanks for the message but I dont have enough posts to send PMs yet and also I haven't got any other wheels at the moment. I'll bear in mind when I've got some replacements! Cheers Ben

    18" Amg Wheels Anyone want a swap?

    Might be a bit of a longshot but my C204 is fitted with 18" twin spoke AMG wheels, whereas I've noticed the majority seem to have the 7 spoke 18" wheels. I prefer the 7 spoke wheels myself, wondered if anyone with these preferred mine and fancied swapping. The wheels on mine were refurbished...
