    Cabrio decision help - A207 vs A238 vs A205

    Don't worry about the DPF in a modern Merc it will do little regens all the time without you taking it for long runs etc. You will never notice it doing so.

    Ignition left on

    I did the same, lots of strange and worrying messages came up, Oh no what have I done !! Put it on a charge overnight and it been fine ever since.

    C207 2012 E350Cdi - iCarsoft DPF Data

    I use short runs, my Dpf regen happened when I took a short motorway drive at 60 mph for 15 mins. You don’t need to go fast or thrash your car. My iCarsoft V 2 won’t do a forced regen on my E class. https://forums.mbclub.co.uk/threads/icarsoft-monitored-my-dpf-regen.272580/#post-3050978

    C63S - 3 year service items missed?

    I would imagine the AMG models have a beef’d up version hence the more regular service intervals, or do they ?

    Thinking of a 207 Convertible

    Mine is unmarked also, apart from the crappy artico “leather” on the drivers seat bolster, that has a very slight split at 44,000 miles.

    Mercedes c220D performance air filter

    I think you should keep the original, performance filters won't make any difference.

    C63S - 3 year service items missed?

    Be very interesting to hear their independent opinion of the quality of removed ATF, also the reason for changing at 14,000 miles and 3 years. I can understand if the vehicle is doing 18,000 miles a year, and i can understand the reason you are changing it as (the very unlikely) failure would be...

    C63S - 3 year service items missed?

    I can't say I'm surprised the previous owner declined the ATF change at 3 years and 14,000 miles. How can this expensive high quality fluid be degraded in such a short mileage, do mercedes assume the car is driven on a race track every weekend ?

    Service rip off

    No, we had to buy 2 rears as they had lots of tread but showed signs of sidewall cracks, they were michelins and over 12 years old.

    Service rip off

    I agree, I bought the wife a 44000 mile Peugeot 207 ages ago from a little old lady, the rear tyres were still original and had loads of life left, the fronts were on there second set, doubt if on any front or rear wheel drive car will have equal wear. I don't see the point in changing all four...

    Thinking of a 207 Convertible

    My E250 has a top speed of around 150mph and returns average of 46 mpg according to stats I just looked up, if that’s correct then you won’t go far wrong, I used to have a BMW 325 petrol convertible that was smooth as silk but got fed up doing 25 mpg when the novelty had worn off.

    Thinking of a 207 Convertible

    I have one but it's the diesel 250 version, but I still like it. Great mpg and very refined at cruising speeds. What do you need to know ?

    ICarsoft monitored my DPF regen?

    Have you tried any other 250 model to see if it will work.

    ICarsoft monitored my DPF regen?

    I set mine up and stuck it over the sat nav screen, watched DPF go from 60% to 5% while on a steady drive out.
