    W203 - C270CDi vibration

    I might be going mad here, but I've become aware of a very subtle vibration through my car. First noticed it immediately after service and thought it was maybe that the dealer had dropped the pressures on the All Season tyres and I was picking up their extra "coarseness". However I then...

    TDI tuning box for C270CDi

    As above really, found this in the garage while clearing a few things out. Plugs onto fuel rail - easy to fit and remove. £75. Can be P&P'd for a few extra squids, and it probably fits more than just the 203 C-class too, given the 5-potter was used in lots of models. Thanks, Geoff

    Is your CDI going into limp mode?

    During the last couple of days my C270 CDI has been playing up! Firstly, it would accelerate as normal through 1st & 2nd, but as it went into 3rd there was no power, no acceleration, it felt as though the turbo had gone to sleep. This then progressed to the engine not revving over 2500 in any...
