    W203 C180 Fuel issues

My 1.4tsi Scirrocco would be showing empty now so yes a good...

    Hello Firstly I am about to leave to pick up my new car (a 2008 C220 Estate), I actually went out to buy a Range Rover or M Class but saw this thought it made great value for money and for an estate car it looked pretty good. Just wanted to say hello and ask is there anything I should know...
