    substute oil cooler

    Hi,I have been quoted £500 for the upgrade on a c180 (w203) that makes your independant sound cheap but i am not sure about one model requiring more work as yours is six and mine four cylinder.I will be interested in finding out how you get on many thanks.

    £330 for oil cooler fitted, I then decided to have the gearbox oil and filter changed to be on the safe side.
    Gear changes are much smoother.

    Any chance of a pic or two please? Is the new cooler coupled up using rubber pipes and clips or how?

    Thanks.
