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 all in to £480 what changed?

Does it drive better? smoother?

£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.
