    Hi, Did the like for like battery require coding or did you just swap old with new? Today a Res battery warning displayed on the dash and I suspect it could be down to the battery...

    To warrant or not to warrant (or to sell) my C63

    I'm in the same situation. Same mileage, same age, same car and I've not had a problem either. If the warranty is less than £100 PCM and you won't miss the money then maybe it's worth the cash even only for selling it on at some point should you find a motor you fancy. Alternative is having a...

    Supercharge or GTR?

    I tried a MY17 GTR recently and I was sold almost immediately- it's a different kind of fast compared to a C63. MY17 interior is leaps ahead of the older GTR models and whilst it's not as good as the C63, it's not bad either- i'd even go as far to say the door cards are better than in our cars...

    W204 C63 or w212 E63?

    I'm not sure what premium the 507 holds but you could get a standard model and get a Eurocharged map for £550 from MSL at the minute and have 95% of the 507 performance (all the bhp but not the lightweight engine internals) and have a wad of change if £10k is the premium. Doubt you could notice...

    W204 C63 Newbie

    Yeah I did mine with smooth black hammerite. Dead easy to do with them on the car. Just make sure to do a few mm onto the surface where the wheel bolts to as its exposed when the wheel is back on.

    Is it or isn't it a 507?

    **WHY DO PEOPLE INSIST ON MAKING CAR ADVERTS IN BLOCK CAPITALS?** IT'S LIKE THEY'RE SHOUTING SAME WAY AS THE TW@T ON THE CILLIT BANG ADVERTS. Anyway, I'm guessing it's an impostor. Nice car all the same though from the looks of it.

    W204 C63 Insurance

    Same here. GoSkippy were the most competitive this year by a fair amount. £346 for the year which isn't bad.

    Main dealer service- supply own parts

    So some feedback here. Main stealer seem happy to do the work with supplied parts, didn't question anything. Labour is £450 for the three hours work so only saves £68. Maybe not worth the hassle but I'll ponder it.

    Main dealer service- supply own parts

    Never knew that. £1104 for two services is the quote online (tried the code AMG150 but that's expired it seems) so would make the A service next year £373 which I think is a bit steep given there are no additional items required next time. Any idea how much a standard A service is? That takes...

    Main dealer service- supply own parts

    Thanks for the input guys, appreciated. I did consider a service plan but I doubt I'll have the car another 3 years. Would benefit the next owner for sure and maybe a good selling point when the time I guess but wouldn't make sense for me at the minute as a cost reduction exercise. I'll get in...

    Main dealer service- supply own parts

    Hi guys My car needs a service next month, a rather expensive B service and also requires spark plugs and brake fluid. How do I go about having the work done at MB (I want to have main dealer service history so no indie) but supplying my own OEM parts? Can I just call and request a quote and...

    C63 Rear Tyres...after 4k miles

    Is there not a tread wear number on the tyre wall to indicate how soft the compound is? Could compare MPSS to OE tyres to see which one is softer.
