  4. Any MCFers here have any experience with 10years old or more Mercs? In your opinion, are they reliable? Of course I'm not expecting it to drive or operate like brand-new, but are they worth getting? Also, on average, how much do you spend on servicing and maintenance? Thanks in advance.
  5. Looks amazing and like a s class. This is going to be a seller in singapore Ultimate luxury
  6. While the CLA concept will only be announced during IAA Munich Auto Show (5 - 10 Sep), prototype with production ready parts has been caught testing on the road in Europe. The upcoming sedan will be part of the newly founded Entry Luxury category. The smallest sedan to carry the three-pointed star will ride on the Mercedes Modular Architecture. The next-gen CLA won't have a bigger brother anymore since Mercedes is pulling the plug on the CLS at the end of this month. Stay tuned for more info.
  7. Just got a used Mercedes GLA180 need help for recommendation for servicing and repair workshop.Thanks a lot in advance
  8. It replaces both C and E coupe
  9. Yes, this is the EV version of the GLB, with a distinctive face from Mercedes-Benz EQ family. Mercedes-Benz EQB 350 4MATIC AMG Line
  10. I started smelling fuel outside of my car after a full tank refill. The smell is strongest at the wheel arch on the passenger side. THe smell would go away after the fuel levels goes below 3/4. I thought this was an isolated issue but doing a google search, people in the US are filing a class action suit to get MB to issue a recall. Has anyone in Singapore had this problem and has MB fixed it? The repair cost in the US is around the region of $2000 USD. Not sure of the price in Singapore but I shall be going to the dealer very soon. Check out the websites. If we can get more publicity then perhaps MB singapore will assist. http://jalopnik.com/...-from-customers http://www.prweb.com...rweb9725192.htm http://www.sandiego-...complaint.shtml Forum discussion: http://mbworld.org/f...11-e-class.html
  11. Sharing this DIY on how I replaced my W212 left side mirror actuator. The left mirror will tilt down when i reverse my car, but recently it has been making strange noise, I knew one of the micro motors must have gone bad, I could buy a micro motor from taobao to fix it, but upon removing the refector , I realised that the actuator assembly screw is bad, so i decided to replace the entire actuator unit instead. The micro motor should look like this, it should be on a plastic worm gear, not the one as shown. I replaced it on my W211 before and it costed me less than $10 from taobao. These are the simple tools I need. a set of Torx screw drivers and a platic pryer. bought this from Surpass, Mr Lim, jiang zua ji. for $195.00 first, I removed the reflector using the plastic pryer. The reflector is snapped onto the actuator with several snap-on clips , do it gently to avoid damaging the clips. The reflector has two heater wires on it, be careful not to stretch the wires . I did not detach the wires because they did not cause any obstruction to my work. you can see a few of the snap-on clips at the back of thereflector. once the reflector is removed, I could see the three screws that mount the actuator onto the casing, I removed the screws and the actuator came out naturally. there is a cable connected to the actuator, disconnct the cable gently. Reverse the same process, and job is done. Maybe 15 min job? Now i am a happy man, no new car but i have a new actuator, very silence.
  12. Why Mercedes skipped GLB when they’ve GLA, GLC, GLE, GLS? GLA too small while GLC too unnecessary, GLB would be just nice for a specific market segment. Only if there is a B Class Grand Tourer, I would have bought it. I waited for it ever since BMW came out with their 2 series Grand Tourer. A futile wait. Merc is missing a market segment in the absence of these 2 models. Anyone interested if such models eixst ?
  13. 275 unit all sold out
  14. It look larger and sleeker... The length and size of the rear quart window pointing to a 7 seater variant?!
  15. And now, the ongoing competition is to see who has the largest... ... screen. Automakers seem to have moved on from the horsepower wars and are now focusing their attention on a new kind of contest. Judging from car launches in recent years, it looks like there’s a race for the title of the largest infotainment screen fitted to an automobile. Mercedes-Benz is committed to taking part in this race; just look at the humongous center screen that the all-new 2020 S-Class will have. These are the very first spy shots of the luxury sedan’s portrait-style center screen which is the size of China. We don’t know exactly how big it is, but since the digital instrument panel is wider than on the current S-Class, the center display is at least as wide and significantly longer. From this distance, it seems even bigger than the iPad Pro 12.9, the world’s largest tablet computer. Look closely and you’ll notice some physical buttons at the bottom of the screen. They control the driving modes, hazard lights, volume, on/off, and some other functions we can’t decipher. Most functions will be accessible via the center touchscreen. Besides the digital instrument panel and the infotainment display, the rest of the cabin is still covered. On the outside, it’s pretty clear that the S-Class prototype features the production headlights and taillights. However, their shapes remain unknown given the heavy camouflage. The 2020 S-Class will arrive next year with Level 3 semi-autonomous driving tech, which is a step above Level 2 systems such as Tesla’s Autopilot and Cadillac’s Super Cruise. The flagship sedan will reportedly feature hybrid-only versions using the latest 3.0-liter and 2.9-liter straight-six gasoline and diesel engines. The PHEV versions are expected to offer all-electric driving ranges of up to 62 miles (100 km). The S-Class is also said to debut a new 4Matic all-wheel-drive system with a fully variable torque split between the axles, as well as an active suspension that will work together with a 48-volt system and a stereo camera scanning the road ahead. Besides the S-Class, Mercedes is also developing an all-electric EQ S luxury sedan that will use a new MEA platform different from the S-Class’ updated MRA architecture.
  16. In the 2010s, a Mercedes C250 was worth about $200,000 when it launched. So you know inflation is getting bad when someone who could afford that just a decade ago can’t even pay their parking fees anymore. What happened? On 27 April in the carpark of Parklane Shopping Mall, a Mercedes C250 driver decided to just ram the parking barrier arm instead of paying his parking fees. Or perhaps it was an accident? The Mercedes initially approached slowly, before a burst of acceleration caused a hit on the barrier arm before braking. Regardless of what it may have been, the Merc drove off soon after. Maybe he’s saving to renew his COE. We all know how much THAT costs now. And with core inflation at 5% now perhaps even people who can drive such vehicles are feeling the pinch too. On the other hand, if you check on the Wayback Machine, Parklane Shopping Mall's price for parking hasn't gone up either so... Maybe just stingy? Online chatter Of course people will bring up the irony of someone driving a car worth a couple hundred thousand, but is unable to spare maybe 5 bucks for parking. A couple of people also suggested "solutions" to discourage others from following this driver's example. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  17. TL-DR- Camcar high beams a Mercedes for no reason, Mercedes driver brake checks camcar. No one can decide who’s in the wrong. We are missing so much context that I can’t give a definite answer on who’s in the wrong this time. Comment down below what are your thoughts! What happened? At Bukit Batok Avenue 3, a camcar decided to high beam a Mercedes C180 out of nowhere for seemingly no reason. When the footage was submitted to SGRoadVigilante, the person was quoted to say “upset when i high beam him, purposely e-brake and caused me to bang into him while turning.” While we do not if it was intentional, the Mercedes indeed brake checked the cam car shortly after being high beamed. However, the camcar did not keep a safe distance from the Mercedes either, leaving no room for it to brake and keep from knocking into the Merc. After the knock, the Mercedes’s driver pulled over and immediately started taking pictures of the camcar and damage done to his own car. Breakdown of mistakes On the camcar’s side, they used high beams when there was no reason to, which is the equivalent of a silent flashbang for whoever is directly in front of them. They also did not keep a safe distance from the Mercedes which, whether intentional or not, allowed the camcar to knock into the Merc’s rear. On the Merc’s side, we have brake checking the camcar. We have no explanation as to why they did this and any reason they have would be under scrutiny as they brake checked directly after the high beams cut out. Furthermore, some already feel that this driver setup the situation to get an insurance claim due to how quickly they got ready to take evidence of the incident. However, being quick to take pictures seems reasonable to me as you don’t know if the driver will immediately run off after an accident like that. So... in the end you can't win in that situation I guess. Online chatter Here are the people who feel that the Mercedes was at fault. Others wanted the camcar to explain the high beams before making a conclusion. One also pointed out the lack of distance between the two vehicles. ========= Be the first to get the latest road/ COE news and get first dibs on exclusive promos and giveaways in our Telegram SGCM Community.

  18. There's nothing like celebrating National Day with a little racing between an SUV and an MPV. A white Honda Odyssey was spotted going toe to toe with a silver Mercedes GLA200 along the TPE expressway on Monday (Aug 9). The video starts off with the white Honda in the lead, as the driver recklessly switched into the camcar lane. Footage from the rear of the camcar showed that both cars were initially speeding along the expressway, with the silver Mercedes desperate to outrun its fellow counterpart. With the Honda quickly gaining speed, the driver of the Mercedes decided to resort to overtaking the camcar on its left - a really dangerous move given that all vehicles were travelling at a relatively high speed. As both vehicles zipped in and out between other cars on the road, it was tough to judge who won the race.

  19. TL;DR - Yet another SG-registered Mercedes GLA180 driver enjoying the cheap RON95 from Malaysia. Despite several signs put up around the petrol kiosks, people just seem to intentionally be oblivious to those posters. Here's what I mean: What happened? Many Singaporeans head into Johor Bahru for the cheap food, cheap massage and most importantly, cheap petrol. This man is no exception. The Mercedes driver was caught filling his car with RON95, the forbidden petrol that is exclusive to MY-registered vehicles only. In case you didn't know, a litre of RON95 costs ~SGD0.60 and a litre of RON97 costs ~SGD1. The difference in price is not worth the public shame lah… And the fact he drives a Mercs makes it worse. Online Chatter When you put cheapskate and Mercedes in a sentence, you get this 'xia-suey' driver. Tsk… throw Singaporeans’ face sia. Cautionary Reminder Under the Control of Supplies Act 1961 and Control of Supplies Regulations 1974, individuals can be fined up to RM1 million (S$321,000), or jailed three years or both if found guilty while entities and companies can be fined a maximum of RM2 million.
