    Guys.

    Looking at changing to a CLK 270 cdi. What should I be looking out for engine wise apart from the usual fsh.
    I have read a bit about flaps in the inlet gumming up. Any other issues.

    If this proves to be a bit of a no goer, I have also been considering a 2.4 Alfa in either the 159 or Brera both in auto of course. Thoughts please.

    The flaps in the inlet do gum up with crud, injector seals can also leak. Do a search for "black death" on the forum.
