Definitely agree with above statement. Might be a personal thing but after trying a few sets of tyres (michelin PS2, Bridgestone RE050A, Goodyear F1-gs3, yokohama advan sport and a couple of others I can't remember) end up always going back to the conti SC3. In my personal opinion best...
Local Koni distrib didn't offer me a full replacement at the time. Considered normal wear and tear but did offered 40% discount on a replacement pair of FSD. They where eventually replaced with the yellow koni's with a 30% discount.
On smooth highway would rate them equally. Nice taught feel and...
I ran these on my "better half" S203. They where perfect when new, BUT they stop working correctly and turn into "boat" asborbers quite quickly. This also happened on my old Seat Leon which ran them for about the same time period. In both cars they lasted all of 47,000-50,000km (horible...
Have a spare w203 facelift front grille in very good condition and a spare set of hella fog lamps (including the HB4 lamps). All in perfect working order with no damage.
My experience is not Merc related so take it with a pinch of salt.
On former VW found there to be a wide range of gen parts from the as good as OEM to the very bad, most of the time not being able to figure out good from bad. Eventually didn't bother and bought directly from dealer.
Sorry can't really remember and have done it on both facelifts at home :doh:.
have you gone through the topics on the forums? still have them bookmarked:
No the actual screan is different. The standard screan has 2 lenses bonded to it, the rain sensor version screen has 10.
The bracket for light sensor will be same size for both versions, but your missing the lenses for the rain sensor.
I've update my facelifw 203 to a double din pioneer 900bt unit. also replace the standard speakers for factory replacement Rainbow speakers. That alone completely transformed sound and I'm more than happy with sound.
Obviously not major ICE and definitely not windscreen shattering sound..:D...
i use Meguiars wheel bright (1 US gallon) lasts a long time. Diluted 1:4
Use sonus tyre dressing and Poorboy's wheel sealant.
On our Seat nothing works though. Those d"#$med pagid RS brake pads work great, but pit the clear coat on wheels..:eek:
Ok, so I'm a bit sick of the aluminum interior trim in my car...:D Did I mention that both 203 have the aluminum trim...:doh:
Does anyone know the part numbers for birds eye maple interior trim on the w203 facelift?? From what I've understood no longer available through dealer but...
