  1. No $$ to buy new model so considering old model. Both are 2,500cc. 2007-08 models for both are similarly priced. Would you choose E230(W211) with V6 or BMW 525i(E60) with IL6? Why? I've test driven some time ago a C230 (same engine as E230), and a 325i(same engine as 525i) and my impression (if memory serves me correctly) is that the IL6 for the 325 is more willing to rev, more responsive. Creamy smooth mated to its 6-speed gearbox. It also seems that 325i has much better sound insulation which I can hardly hear any enging noise most of the time. I've no idea about the gear system of the Merc but the engine noise of the V6 in the C230 is much more intruding to the drive cabin perhaps due to sound insulation? The engine note is also much sweeter for the 325i while that for the C230 is more coarse. Shouldn't Merc be very good at V6 as IL6 to BMW? Besides engine, what other consideration you have? Care to share? Cheers!
  2. I am currently considering b/w these 3 models-> BMW 320i, E200CGI or an audi A4. Does anyone know which brand gives the best fuel consumption?? For servicing, i know all will be expensive.. but is there a difference in cost b/w these 3?? (Generally, which will be more expensive in servicing?) Thanks
  3. Hi all, some of you might know that i used to drive a Lexus Gs450h , bought 2nd hand 7yrs old with 117K km. Although i did choose lexus for reliability , it gave me 2 big big issues one being the hybrid battery and another being the engine blew up, hence have decided to scrap the car. with the lexus , i have learnt a few things : - 3.5 road tax can die - horsepower not worth in SG, although car is silky smooth - dont buy a old hybrid car hence, I've been looking around for the next car that will not give me so much problems ( at least not so expensive ones) and have come across a friend that drives a W204 facelift model. so far since day 1 of owning the car, the car had no major problems other than a few cheap wear and tears that were very minor. anyone can share any opinion regarding the reliability of the w204 model, buying 2nd hand , and also, after the expiry of COE, will it be worthwhile to renew COE on this model? i have yet to test drive the car, but overall looks and interior quality are pretty nice IMO any opinions regarding is appreciated, or even other car suggestions are welcome too. looking at c180 or c200 model

    Audi A5 or Merc C Coupe?

    I can't decide which one, both are nice in styling in it's own design. Power wise definitely thumbs up on A5, C Coupe not too bad too. Need your kind comments on them, cheers!

    folks, my bro is looking to buy a used c200k, probably 07 or 08 model. Most of them have mileage around the century mark. he is fine with the mileage, but worried cost of major servicing, in particular for cars that either hit 100k or 110k, or after x number of years.. any benz drivers can offer when is a c class is due for major servicing and how much roughly? Cant advise him as i have not owned benz makes before.. thanks.

    Hello everyone, I am currently driving a Kia Forte and am interested in changing up my ride. Having browse through SG Car Mart, there are plenty of choices... Narrowed my choices to these cars with the depreciation of $11k - $13k: Merc A-class - A180 Toyota Harrier Audi A3 Honda Civic Turbo Any recommendations?

    Recommended workshops for Merc

    Bro, My C class is out of warranty and looking for a workshop, any recommendation?
  8. Please look at the pictures, it's for Merc. AMG logo trim, how much is it?
  9. I am selling my Merc purchased from C&C to another conti car. I have about 2000+ balance service credits which are not transferable to other Merc owners. So planning to use the balance credits to purchase items from Merc boutique in Alexandra and to sell the items to anyone interested at 30% discount off the usual boutique price. The discount is slightly negotiable and you can decide which items you would like. You can accompany me to the boutique. If anyone is keen, please pm me to arrange meet-up at the boutique. Thanks.
  10. Can find any thread related to the new A class (W176). Any bro or sis can share your review?
  11. Will like advice from fellow car enthusiasts for advice on the 3 cars: Which will you put your money in and why? (Thanks for giving me your reason!) I am aware that the 3 of them belong to different categories but their prices are pretty similar and imho, they all look good and each one with their individual ups & downs. WHICH is WHY I am caught in a dilemma in which to get. I had also test driven them, except the CLA250(not available for test drive) and am loving how the Jag handles and how wonderful the pull of the BMW is. Test driven the CLA180SB, underpowered and am not a fan of FWD, especially so for wagon driving. For my needs, it's basically a 4-5door family-type of car with a fun aspect, definitely. Not too shabby a price when I sell in 3-4years time. Jaguar XE CLA 250 Shooting Brake BMW 330i, F30 Thanks in advance for all your helpful inputs!

    Different E250?

    Why are there 2 different look of E250? The earlier model before current. One with pertruding merc logo on the bonnet, the other without.
  13. Hi bros and sis, My current car left 1 year lifespan, so starting to shop around for another car.. im looking at 3 yr old Merc E250 or the Lexus ES250. However, need to ask around for more advice if we compare these 2 models, which is a better option? Im looking at factors such as cabin space, maintenance, FC and reliability. Any advice is appreciated. :) Thx in advance.

    Need some advice. Merc or BMW?

    Hi gurus... Need some advice here. I'm looking at either the merc gla 180, cla shooting brake, BMW 216i, or BMW x1. I haven't test drive any of them yet, will be doing the test drive next week. Anyway I wouldn't be able to tell much about the car from a test drive. Of the 4 choices, I'm seriously considering the gla180 and BMW x1. I've got a family of 3, and I do have to transport goods occasionally (maybe once a month, 20-30 boxes per trip). Any feedback would be appreciated!!

    1 or 2 years old Merc C180 (W204)

    Any bro can advise the reliability, FC, maintenance cost,..etc for this car? I test drove once about 1 year ago, quite like it. However the rear seats is quite small for 3 adults. The selling price for 2 years old C180 is about $140K ++ which is about the same as new Camry (lower depreciation and much bigger rear legroom).
  19. Hi All, I am driving Hyundai Getz now. Its COE is due in one year time. I am 33 years old and earning $4k per month. I am car enthusiast and I wish to own a new Merc C class in the near future. Do you think it is possible to own a new Merc C class at my current salary level? If not, what should I do? Any kind soul please advice me...
  20. In general, people are saying Mercs hold its value well. Using my own, it's a Jan 2011 C180 which I bought from a dealer for 140k around a year and half old. Coe was 35k. Fast forward. Taking a similar year and half C Oct 2014 below, they are selling at 147k but coe is 65k. http://www.sgcarmart.com/used_cars/info.php?ID=529153&DL=1013 Is this the indication how Mercs are holding their value? Of course, this is disregarding low-balling from dealers. I am looking at selling price in the market.
  21. Hi all bros, Was driving towards JB this morning. Many cars at the queue at Singapore side checkpoint. Accidently scraped the car next to me. We both come out from the car and took pictures of the light scratch on the paintwork and each plate number. After done that we both drives on without taking any personnel particular of each other. My concern is can the other party make claim on this and should I report to my insurance...just in case. Cheers...

It's always nice to see him make a public appearance these days. Looks like he finally switched from his trusted Lexus to a Mercedes-Benz W221, too.
