    You can ask your SE to do it before collection but it may delay your car collection.

    2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

    Really? When I went 2 weeks ago, on the ground floor was displayed the S class when you go in the door, to the left of the main entrance was the C and the E. Just behind the S class was the CLA and A. On the first floor, the GLC, E and GLA were displayed on the right side of the elevator, so all were together. On the left side of the elevator was the GLC and E coupe. But then again, things may have changed.....

    Freaky Coincidences

    Don't know if you guys remember bit old Tampines road had a small buffalo farm and the road used to run parallel to an airbase. Used to remember seeing military planes taking off from there.

    Freaky Coincidences

    Erm...I also used to stay at 6th milestone and after the govt acquired the land, I moved to Toa Payoh Lor 6.... My coincidence story is that I was looking for someone to tune my WRX last time. I called several tuners and finally talking to a very friendly one who asked me to drop by his shop to talk further. I agreed and went to the shop and found out that he is my tuition mate when I was in JC. We had lost contact after A levels. Naturally, I decided to choose him to tune my car.

    Every car should have this umbrella!

    Quite a few on the market now. I used to have Door Defender, but many other brands now.

    Whether the C180 is a B&B car or not is not the issue here. Cars are a substantial cost for most of us in Singapore. And I think that by buying a car of any brand or model, I hope that I get a decent attempt by the AD or PI to try and fix the problems that arise. Enjoy the car that you have and don't be affected by seemingly negative remarks about your respective cars.

    Any issue on load? Coz I also find it more convenient not to switch off aircon and media player, but my friends all tell me to switch off as there will be excessive load (whatever that means).

    Yes, even after parking in a sheltered lot, it does feel warm. Yes, I turn off the air con every time before I switch off the engine to prevent load when I turn the engine on again. Can't help with equalizer settings as I don't really care much about music so I just adjust until it sounds ok to me. Yes, I have hit 9th gear at around 100 km/h.

    I like that the dashboard can be electronic and the trackpad looks way more seamless in the design than what the current C has. What I don't like is the steering wheel. I think it has too many buttons on it and looks too cluttered.

    Looks like the speedo is now digital?
  13. I've actually used the app a few times already. I find it a lot more convenient than tearing coupon and I don't have to rush back to my car to tear a new coupon. And, it refunds whatever remaining time I don't use.

    But on paper already your new car lose to your old car in terms of bhp, what more in real world conditions. Wondering why do you think it will drive faster whether morning or evening. Yes, ambient heat can affect the car's performance, but not so drastically. Maybe you might want to consider the C300 or C43 instead.

    My 9G so far so good. But still running in the car. SE told me to keep it in Comfort mode until at least 1000km. No hunting for gears that I can discern. Mine is Brilliant Blue. Was thinking of black or midnight blue, the as I came back from the test drive, saw a C43 in Brilliant Blue and it looked good. My interior is black, but so far no heat issues.
