After some aggressive negotiations I managed to secure £7k trade in on our 2011 C180...

    CLK W208 - problems with swapping Audio 10 with Audio 30?

    Hello everybody :-) I'm looking to buy a CLK and since the head unit has somewhat limited support, I'd like to install one of those Dension devices that replace the CD changer. However, as far as I know, Audio 10 doesn't support one. Unfortunately the car I'm eyeing come equipped with it...

    Merc techs - engine swapping advice please

    I have a 98 c240 Sport estate which I love, but is rather lacking in the 'go' department. Consequently, I have been looking at the low price of similar aged rusty E55 saloons and am thinking of using one as an engine donor. Although I have a fair amount of experience with fabrication and engine...

    Hi everybody. Im just wondering is it possible to swap the engine for ML111 EVO Kompressor? At the moment I have it ML111 EVO non kompressor with only 129bhp. Is it only the engine and ECU that Ill need to change or also differential and drive shaft?

    Swapping M104 in W114 Coupe. Is dual fuel pump a must in M104 E320?

    The original setup for W114 (250 CE) uses one fuel pump. In a W124 E320 the fuel is supplied by two fuel pumps. Is it absolute necessary to install this setup in my swap or can I use the existing one that is bolted on to the chassis already?

    ECU swapping W202

    A quick question for our gurus on the forum. If an ecu is taken out of w202 and put in another will it work together with EIS and steering lock? Is it plug n play or is there more to it?
