    W208 320 Is higher octane fuel safe/worthwhile

    High octane dose work but only in engines that can adjust to use it. In my 90's turbo I have a switch that changes timing. On tests turbo cars did make the most of the high octane fuels. So like a lot of people have posted try it and see.

    ML270 inlet manifiold leaking

    Interesting mod. At all the cost of replacement its MPG would have to be quite low before you would not save quite a lot?

    ML Audio install.

    Its the RCA cables that I don't want too long. On some of my old cars there has been interference from this and I think earth problems? I will have a look around the car this weekend and let you know if I find any space or any ECU's that are not needed ;)

    ML Audio install.

    Thanks V12. The only problem is under the drivers seat there are two boxes. One I think is to do with moving the seat the other I don't know. Under the passenger seat will be the sub. But going to a car hifi shop would be a good move...

    ML Audio install.

    I am upgrading the speakers in my ML (2003). So I have my speakers and I am looking at also adding an AMP to drive the speakers. So this then leaves a few question: I would like to put AMP behind the glove box, is there space? If not where would you fit it? I am thinking of using an adapter...

    ML 270 CDi exhaust manifold

    Will try and get pick up over the weekend. If you face the engine there is the center plastic cover with merc in silver in the middle. To the left of that is a pipe running from the front of the car into a black plastic box on the exhaust side of things (above pre-cat and turbo). On the left...

    ML 270 CDi exhaust manifold

    On the plastic top of the exhaust manifold (facing car, left hand side) there is a knob. I could not find it in the manual. What does it do? :dk:

    ML270CDI Worth Remapping?

    Very tempted until you see they have a 2wd rolling road and so could not have tested the 4wd ML!

    ML 270 rear window

    So it was the bottom edge on both sides. Facing the back of the car, the left hand side had the bigger problem. Although I don't mind spending cash on the car to keep it how it should be £200+ for a new window seemed a bit much. So off to Halfords for some silicone glue/bond for windows. It...

    Which oil and where from?

    Costco is good and most fully synthetic oils for the correct spec will do. The number one thing to do is change the oil when needed over any types or make of oil. I would question Mobil 1 being the best but it is very good and unless you have a race car it will more than do the job.

    03 ML 270 cdi (auto)

    Hi Just got an ML 270 for its very big boot and lots of old man comforts. The accelerator peddle is now fixed, to find the kick down would not work (now it hits it). The has lead to a new MAF and inlet manifold. So just need to get the boot lid sorted and stop the drivers side mirror from...

    ML 270 rear window

    Thanks for your fast reply dokalj If you pull the glass at the edge it will come away from the seal and you can see passed the joint e.g if I look from the edge and push from the in side I can see my fingers! I would think it should be bonded to the rear frame? So was I am asking really is "how...

    ML 270 rear window

    Hi All First post and it's a problem (what am I like). I have had my ML 270 cdi for about 4 weeks now and have fixed the peddle with a bolt, had the MAF and inlet manifold replaced. But still have a few thing to get right on it. Every time a closed the boot it sounded like there was some thing...
