Don't think the 550i case will set precedence. 

 

The "cannot feel/hear but ran over a cyclist in father's lexus"  case's judge don't seem to need a test drive to quickly agree that it is all the car's fault for being too well insulated...

I notice the recommended tire pressure on a b class with standard run flats is 250?

 

That makes the ride even firmer than it is currently.. I wonder if any bros run with less pressure?

Guys, i just got an 3 years old E250 (R18). I am seeking advice regarding the Nano treatment did by C&C.

 

I suppose the ex owner already did the Nano treatment when he collected fr C&C as i saw the Nano sticker pasted on door side.

 

Does this Nano treatment similar to those PPS found in the market, eg. Ceramic, Glass coating?

 

How many years does this Nano treatment suppose to last? Should i do ceramic coating now since i just took over?

 

Thanks for your advice

 

cheers!

C&C open house today as posted by some others few days back. Seems like even C class has offer n I wonder whether it's really a good promo or just another gimmick just to kick off sales for the Rooster year?

With COEs expected to strengthen by end-2017/2018 and with further quota cutbacks thereafter, they are sure vying to be the No. 1 selling brand yet again in Singapore!

Huat Ah!

So why not buy another car as a spare. Likely you can sell it 2-3 years later with zero loss. And who knows maybe even a profit from the rising coes.

Only a fool will punt on the probability of (future) margin trading gains on a depreciating asset!

The only way to know is to ask a rep, and compare it with the offer price bros posted from the motor show. Imo Coe fluctuations will influence the prices more unless they are still trying to push the 7g version..

Congrats on your new car.

The Nano similar, but at three years, unless he did the last treatment just before he sold it, the effect may not be there anymore.

You get two treatments free.

Your hand will tell you if you should renew the PPS.

Or just ask the seller or ask C&C when it was last done. Good luck.

C class price recently hiked to $188,888. They probably just give a small discount and go back to previous $185,888 price.  [:p]

Anyone able to help?

Is it ok to run with slightly lower pressure?

Cheers

Its ok to lower the tyre pressure slightly. My sis pumped about 240 when she was using RFT.

 

After worn out of the RFT, change to normal tyre better. More comfortable.

Mercedes TPMS is auto recalibration or must press a button to recalibrate after each pumping?

Not sure about newer models, w204 isn't auto.

Anyway it isn't difficult to find it in the menu.. Just do it loh..

I didn't do that when I pumped air last week.. no warning signs, and my car didn't explode or cry out...

However the ride is rather firm... might be the run flats..

Thanks! Haven't got my car yet. Just reading around to learn as much as I can while waiting.

 

My previous W203 did not come with TPMS then.

 

There are some TPMS system that has dedicated pressure sensor valves for each tyre which can show up each tyre's exact pressure. While some TPMS uses the ABS/ESP to extrapolate if one of the tyres are losing pressure from the difference in rolling diameter.

By right whenever your pump your tire, you should reset the new pressure so the computer can capture this is the new reading to benchmark.

mine is quite suffice, though i don't think there's a pressure sensor valve in each tyre.

twice detected air leaking and the instrument panel blinked red to 'check tyre pressure'.

only didn't tell me which tyre kenna. 

 

more high tech one i heard people install outside is having sensor per tyre/valve and has a panel display showing the pressure in each tyre. machiam like F1  :D

For the new Merc models, it has the display of individual Tyre pressure reading.

W204 is not using TPMS only in W205 TPMS included.

W204 is getting what it called run flat monitoring, it measure rotation timing of each wheels. If there is one tyre rotation out of timing it will display "check tyre pressure". Lower pressure on tyre affect the diameter therefore also affect rotation timing. After preussure confirmed on all 4 tyres then need to reset the system.

TPMS is very useful.

 

my stock one doesn't display the exact pressure. it only lights up when it detects that pressure is low.

 

eve of CNY eve it lighted up. turned out to be a slow leak, pressure was 200kpa.

 

if i had a display, i'd have found out earlier.
