    C205 hub centre bore question

    Appreciate the reply, and good points well made. 👍🏻 I wanted to sense check, as been caught out once before with a precision cut part that i assumed would “be ok”, but wasn’t.

    C205 hub centre bore question

    Ive been searching around for a definitive answer as to whether 66.5 centre bore spacers will be fine when the correct measurement on the c205 is actually 66.6. It seems it will be ok but what im not sure about is whether it means the spacers will be tight to get on the hub, or the wheels will...

    Not me.😉 I was just pleasantly surprised to see it above 20 combined, despite the odd spirited drive. I bet the number will go down in the summer when the car warms up quicker and the opportunity to “drive properly” increases.

    Its is indeed! Maldon is getting overcrowded for my liking now, but i love the fact it feels like a holiday destination, like Devon/Dorset in a way.

    Oh theres no doubting its not really economical. But who seriously buys these cars expecting economy? Its all about smiles per gallon!😁 I was originally getting a w205 C63 as desperately wanted the V8 at least once before we’re all forced into over sized RC cars! But the insurance was insane...

    Thanks mate. Yes its my favourite colour out of the very limited selection. I think its called selanite grey, or something like that. Im Maldon based, grew up in Wickford, so not far from the places you mentioned.

    No apology necessary. We all have lives outside of forums🙂 To be honest im not sure about the V8 economy but im getting 23mpg combined based on comfort mode until warmed up and then sport/sport+ thereafter. Most of my mileage is short range. If i go long distance then i get around 35mpg. That’s...

    Anyone fitted c63 style rear bumper vent cover/trims?

    Hey thank you for the links mate. Thats above and beyond! CT Carbon do them it seems. Hard to determine if they are any better than the ones i bought but worth a look.

    Night Pack - Window tint levels

    Haha! Love this! Im always glad that other drivers cant see my kids randomly waving at them. Doesn’t matter how many times i tell them to stop being weird, they still do it!

    Night Pack - Window tint levels

    I bet you’ll find the rear and sides are just the factory tint. The factory tints are very dark (i just snapped this pic of mine out the window). The previous owner probably just had the door windows done to match. If you remove the film, heat it with a hairdryer as you go along to help...

    Night Pack - Window tint levels

    Looks cool, but sadly illegal and will no doubt attract unwanted attention from the fuzz (Speaking from personal experience). As said above, the max tint on the side windows will already be in the glass from factory. The rear screen and sides on my C43 are factory limo tinted and it definitely...

    Anyone fitted c63 style rear bumper vent cover/trims?

    So i bought these rear bumper trims for my C43 coupe off ebay as i love the look on the C63. Sizing them up against the car, I realised they weren’t going to fit too well. I warmed them up and successfully improved the shape so they were going to fit nicely, however made the mistake of trying...

    C43 purge valve

    Ah fair enough. I hoped it could be quietened down. But if that’s not likely to make a difference, then will just have to put up with it.

    C43 purge valve

    I have the ticking purge valve on my 2019 C43. The car is new to me since November. Google has told me repeatedly that it isnt anything to worry about, however i wonder if you have to put up with the noise or if changing it will improve things? Ive not been able to find a definitive answer to...

    Intro - new owner

    Hi all. I recently purchased a 2019 C43, so thought id say hello. I absolutely love the car. Previous owner had the Pan-Am grill fitted. The Merc dealership told me it was fitted at the factory but ive never heard of that being a new build option. My only gripe with the car is the weak rear...
