Glad you had a great time - fantastic looking car, and lovely weather for it. Would love to see how much more supple it is compared to a 'regular' E-class.
Never been a fan of black wheels before but yours look amazing with the silver paint!
Where is the lake in the picture with the three cars?
I don’t think even Shell claim that V-power diesel is doing anything more than cleaning/keeping clean, helping the car try to maintain its potential.
That’s why I use it anyway, especially on a higher mileage car that has only been in my ownership for 20-25% of its life.
I’ve never seen any...
I don't think the turbo is different, but apparently the injectors are. There are a couple of other changes I've noticed, such as a different location/type of PCV, as well as a slightly different looking turbo pipe.
There is a bit of a remap/different map, on the 265, too.
The 265bhp with the...
Both OM642 revisions should idle at about 550-650rpm under normal conditions, and 750-850rpm when cold or during DPF regen, which is why I was asking.
I wouldn't rule out an issue that stops the car from regen-ing properly, and therefore it keeps attempting it.
I'm at about 7k miles since the last service, been quite busy and doing lots of motorway miles. The regular interval is 1 year or ~15k miles, right?
Do you guys change the oil/service every 10k miles instead?
I'm thinking of buying one of those oil suction pumps so that I don't...
I have taken that whole section apart and placed felt tape all over it to get rid of the rattles and squeaks. I’m afraid you’ll likely have to do the same. It’s probably more the air vents above the radio, but there’s loads or creaky plastic there
Also try putting the sliding tray back to the...
I had an e39 with an m54 engine and I would not describe it as reliable (at least once over 100k and/or 15+ years old)
I love BMWs but the plastics in the engine don’t age well
I did a lot of work on that engine, and they weren’t galvanised back then (similar time scale as MB) so would rust. I...
It was - they had really nice cars inside too, but I didn't want to be too nosey! Gives you a bit of confidence in the place when there are classics and AMGs everywhere.
I've had good service from them a few times now, so I do recommend them.
