Well DRM, those bass units certainly suck some power, and it has been mentioned that a drop in voltage can cause the BAS/ESP light to flicker.
Do you know what your water temperature guage was reading when the warning light came on? If it stays on I'd be concerned, but if it goes off maybe it's...
Something odd this morning when I left for work. After starting the engine (2000 C200T) from cold, the ESP/BAS warning light remained on until I arrived at work (approx 12 miles). No loss of power, no other other instrument failures (as far as I'm aware)
This evening on way home, again...
Jimmy, when you spoke to Directline regarding the wheels, they quoted "as long as they were a factory or dealer option when the car was purchased new", they only made a reference to it on the policy. I'm with Directline and did exactly the same, explaining the situation very carefully, and...
Just been through exactly the same thing with DirectLine last week. Upgraded to 17" AMG's and fitted lower suspension. My premium has increased about £120, even though the AMG's are listed as an option for my car.
I can understand the suspension mods increasing the premium as these are not...
I'll second that. George and his crew did the suspension modifications to my car, fitted the new wheels, had the tracking/alignment done and cleaned it up nicely.
It's really manic in there and you do get the impression that they're not on top of things.
I was talking to Des who said they're...
Eibach springs and AMG wheels being fitted today. They're the Eibach Pro-Kit progressive springs.
Whilst I'm not doing them myself, I'd like to check that they have been done correctly. The kit did not include any fitting instructions - nothat I could see anyway.
Does anyone know which...
May have to postpone the fitment of the new suspension. After speaking to motorsportworld, the most suitable dampers are the Bilstein Sports and they are a special order from Bilstein in Germany.
I've waited a month already, a few more weeks won't hurt (much...)
According to their website "We only use glass from car manufacturers' suppliers."
I did some research on Autoglass before they came out to repair a stone chip in my windscreen recently (under my insurance so it cost nothing). I may have to get them back out to replace the screen if it fails...
Sym, springs and dampers are specific to the estate. The Eibach springs part number 2546.140 fit these model variants - S202 (Estate) C180, C200, C200 K, C220, C230, C230 K, C200 TD, C200 CDI, C220 TD, C220 CDI. There are other part numbers specific to the estate with automatic ride height...
Car's booked in to have the Eibach springs and Bilstein dampers fitted by George Fraser. Still thinking about the dampers though. Despite many of you advising to keep the standard dampers, I think I'll get the Bilstein Sprints. Car's got just a bit over 50k on the clock and while I'm sure that...
Well, definitely going with the Eibach springs. H&R is too much of a drop for my liking.
If I don't change the dampers, wouldn't there be more strain on the standard ones? They'd be more compressed wouldn't they?
Altreed, not doing any of this myself, so I'd rather get the whole lot done in...
