    Anyone checked inlet temp on a C230 Kompressor?

    As title really. Im guessing no, but wondered before I go and do it, saving me a job. The way the car drives feels to me like on cars when the intercooler is struggling, but its a fair size and the boost is v.low, so kinda surprised if it is, and the odd shape pipework makes an upgrade not a...

    Get your car checked before it's to late

    Well as I was cleaning my car this last weekend gone, I elected to take all four wheels off in turn and give them a thorough clean and polish inside and out. Being I had the wheels refurbed about 18 months ago It made sense anyway to take them off and give them a good inspection for any...

    Getting my 1995 C180 W202 checked over mechanically

    Basically I've had a good quote from a bodyshop on a restoration job for the above, which I bought three weeks ago. The car runs absolutely fine and to my untrained eye everything looks fine, but before spending money on it I want to be sure there isn't something obvious that will give me...

    ANPR - how much is checked ?

    When ANPR checks a vehicle registration, what exactly get checked ? Presumably insurance & MOT. But does it check if the registered keeper is a Full Licence Holder ? Does it check if the licence type is correct ? ie all the extra codes. Would it detect the vehicle has manual...

    Checked with Assyst, no Valeo radiator in my 2003

    I thought all if not most 2003 W211's came with the Valeo Rad? Once i have picked up the car from the dealer after paying in full, i'll take a look to make sure. Assyst did a quick VIN check on my new (used) car, and the tech guy told me no.

    Have you checked your gearbox latley?

    I took this oil out of a W208 gearbox today as it had a problem. Sadly neglected. Cost? new gearbox :crazy: The pic is a little small however you may just be able to see streaks in it which I assume are parts of the innards.

    The warranty on my W202 is about to expire in roughly 6 months. I have maintained this vehicle regularly. A/B services, plus synthetic oil changes in-between at every 3000 to 4000-mile intervals. The vehicle drives quite nicely and I do not detect anything out of the ordinary in the...

    Anyone checked out the MBOA site recently ?

    Seems the MBOA boys have adopted a new look. Looks strange and lacks any form of Mercedes logo etc.
