    Have been looking forward to getting my C180 'Superchipped' today.  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/banana.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':bannana:'>

    Got to the place at 9am, they started to strip out the ECU and then said it could not be done. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/omg.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':eek:mg:'>  Although I checked my ECU was a Bosch, they said it was actually a Siemens made ECU badged as Bosch. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sarcasm.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':sara:'>

    Needless to say I was a bit dissapointed as I was looking forward to an extra 10-15 horses galloping away under the bonnet. Anyway, back to plan A and I shall continue saving for a bigger C in a year or two or three.......or five <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    Sorry to hear about that Jimmy.

    The following helps me live with mine: Don't push it too hard and you won't be disappointed, enjoy the high MPG and low Insurance. Remember it's still a Mercedes.

    Cheers.
