    M156 tuning question

    I am under the impression the M156 other than the dry-sumped SLS is basically the same engine at different states of tune. Most C63's which are the most 'de-tuned' seem to be remap-able up to about the 520bhp region. The later M156 engined E63 + S63's etc had 518bhp. Can they be remapped to...

    Oil viscosity question.

    Hello people, just a quick question, I have a c220cdi on 06 plate with 127k on the clock, is it preferred to use 5w40!rather than 5w30 on an engine with higher miles? Due to the oil being slightly higher viscosity, I was given this advice for my wife's Nissan xtrail. Thanks

    Cooling question

    Hi, forgive me as I am new to this Mercedes lark, I have a 2006 c220cdi sport, when driving to work this morning the temp guage didn't go above 50 degrees, the ambient temperature was 3.5 degrees, could this be a thermostat problem, or is this normal for these engines? Thanks

    To wax or not to wax, that is the question

    My car is around 10 weeks old now and usually as with previous cars I wax this time of year and again in October. Any views on whether this is a good pattern or will the October coat be sufficient.:thumb:
