Being in the motor trade and jumping in and out of various motors on a daily basis, I have noticed that a lot of higher performance cars suffer from the same thing at start up, so I suspect its (as has been stated) that its the mapping to deal with high emissions during the warm up period.
Will, I get your point re it being the car you want etc, but the fact that they have been happy to BS you right from the outset, rather than being upfront, does not bode well if the car subsequently has faults/issues.....that's when their BS levels will ratchet up big time.
Yes you have a...
Just a quickie for any of you who have a Twin Turbo.
I've got an original Turbo Technics Document Wallet + Handbooks that came with the Twin Turbo conversions back in the 90's.
I'm happy to sell it. Its in excellent condition and could be a nice edition to add to your Car's History
Quick question for you guys. A relative has asked me to sell a set of old Skool Fondmetal Alloy Wheels for him. I've got a feeling that they may have been on his W123 for a short time, but also have a feeling that they may also fit W126/C126 models.
Any thoughts...fitment size is 7J x 16 ET 21.5
Ok its not a Mercedes, but I need a good SMART Indi in and around Berks/Surrey/Oxon.
I've got a Brabus SMART Roadster that needs some attention and I'm struggling to find an Indi who specialises in SMARTS in my neck of the woods.
Personally I would avoid the 250....in my opinion a bit of a lemon. All the issues mentioned above and I've seen plenty with timing chain issues and even had one with 38,000 miles and a lack of compression.
As above....if you find a later 350 so much the better unless you find one which has had the engine work done or go for an earlier 350 with the older 3.7 engine which is pretty bomb proof.
Personally I would also avoid one which has been fitted with ABC Suspension.
Do the usual checks, ie...
