    C43 - new discs and pads - do they need bedding in?

    I've never done anything specific to bed brakes in but the usual advice is take it easy for a whole after changing because the new brakes won't be as effective right out the box. I wouldn't go slamming on or doing any hard breaking and leave your self plenty of stopping distance. I always give...

    Understanding IAT's and power loss

    I dont have any experience with cls but warm air is less dense than cold which would also mean less fuel in so less power. On top of that warmer intake air has a higher risk of pre detonation so the car probably takes some timing out to reduce power and protect the engine from knock.

    MB Indy South Yorks.

    I've struggled to find one local to me in Sheffield. There's a place down brightside/Attercliffe called German auto Centre that I've had ppl tell me about but never used them I've took mine to europa a couple of times. They're not main dealer but an official mb place. So far I think they've...

    New E53 delayed, spec reduced

    I'd want a reduction in the cost of the car or cancel the order all together. Mb are passing off their higher costs to the customer. While prices may have to be adjusted going forward I think they should honour existing orders or reimburse for the things they promise but can't deliver. Moving...

    E63 caput @ 43k 🙄

    Which would go along with what jobsworth said and the hot exhaust igniting the unburnt fuel.

    E63 caput @ 43k 🙄

    Anti lag systems create this effect intentionally to keep the turbo spooled up but maybe that's different because it's not under full load

    E63 caput @ 43k 🙄

    This is just a guess off the top of my head If a cylinder misfires there is a momentary loss of power. I think this could result in increased load on the crank and in turn the conrods when the next cylinder fires correctly. I think this is only an issue under full load and wouldn't be an issue...

    Stage 1 @ MSL & resonator delete....

    @jonboyE63 I'm considering the resenator delete on my car. Did you keep the secondary cats (not 100% if there even are any, not been under the car yet) or take them out too and did they straight pipe where the resonator went or go for a X or H pipe. Cheers pal

    E63 caput @ 43k 🙄

    If so maybe its a safety thing so the engine runs a little cooler and ensure it never goes lean

    E63 caput @ 43k 🙄

    Would that not be an indicator of a further problem like burning oil or poor combustion or tune perhaps rather than anything wrong with the plug. Would the new plug not just get coked up again or if you cleaned the old one up and put it back its fine. Symptom rather than cause. 🤷‍♂️

    M156 vs m157 amg engines c63 e63 amg

    @f17ant Thanks for the comparison. I was looking forward to hearing someone's thoughts who had experienced both. I've got an m157 e63 but not been in the new versions.

    Rust protection question

    Don't do this, it's asking for trouble. Resin is too brittle and would come unstuck from the arch I'm sure and then you've got somewhere to trap moisture between the 2 layers. I would prep the surface very well. Paint with 2k epoxy primer which is all but indistructable and finish with some...

    Rust protection question

    Dinitrol do some pretty good stone chip and cavity wax type products and sure they would have something suitable. I wouldn't use rc900 though, I thought it was pretty poor.

    Tidying up new (to me) e63 estate

    Maybe I'm old fashioned but I don't trust products that claim to do it all. I can't imagine the scholl s20 would have enough cutting power for the deeper scratches. I've never used it though so maybe it would be up to it. I take your point about the wax but it genuinely was in decent nick and...

    Tidying up new (to me) e63 estate

    Thanks. To be honest I've still got a fair bit to do but as often seems to happen other things have taken priority and the cars have to wait a while.
