My friend bought a C180. His overtrade was also very generous. I suspect the higher end models will enjoy a better deal. 

 

It depends on which models they have in stock (more units) that they like to push. If you choose those they have stock and the colour available, CnC will give higher overtrade.

 

If those need to indent, the disc is very low or no disc.

Got this off another forum:

 

Car essential package basically contain the followings

1) tyre patching x6

2) windscreen polishingx 3

3) aircon svc package

4) star interior ( I suppose is interior cleaning)

5)nano sealants x2

6)welcome pack ( dunno what it contains)

Total value : $3062

 

not too sure about the "Plus" difference.

 

you can also ask your SE and update us here.

I also pump 95. Nothing is wrong...

premium octane grades are overrated. There's a report recently that u.s. consumers wasted billion on premiums.

 

 

   If one pump long term ( 20 months in a stretch ) it can cause exhaust damage spewing white smoke when car is at red light or stationary stand still.

You that even if the Merc is rated for Ron 95, this can happen?

White smoke is a sign of incomplete combustion IIRC..

IIRC white smoke is sign of leakage of engine oil into the combustion chamber - burning of the engine oil produces white smoke.

 

Incomplete combustion produces black smoke, not white.

Hi,

May I know what car and model are you driving? For me, as I have always been pumping Shell 95 when I was driving an E60 525 IL 6NA, I continued filling the same Shell 95 when I got the W212 last batch of E200 which is a TC 2.0L engine.

However, 1 day I went to pump V-Power....my goodness, it was like driving a brand new car! The vibration of the steering wheel and engine disappear immediately and i now do not feel much difference when the engine start/stop at the traffic light.

In other words, it was day and night difference between 95 and V-Power. Next I tried Shell 98....I tell you, i can't wait for the petrol to be used up so I can go back to filling V-Power. I'm sold and I'm addicted to V-Power now.

as i mentioned somewhere in the forum... it all depends on your engine....

 

lower powered engines will not see a significant change in the power output based on butt-feel. a 1% improvement to 100bhp is only 1 bhp. So don't need to waste the money on 98RON.

 

higher powered engines will be more likely to see the benefit.....since higher powered engines usually means their tuning parameters are tighter and thus likely to have different ECU air-fuel maps to protect the engine from detonation an increased wear and tear from using lower 95RON.

haha, I am very confused with German definition of coupe.

 

in my simple mind,

 

coupe = 2 doors

 

sedan = 4 doors

 

think for BMW gran coupe also means 4 doors ...  [:p]

Yes, but Merc their facelift is like doing major cosmetic surgery... so can claim it is "new generation".

 

New front light design similar to C, E, S class.

Just saw the E200 in the flesh, very nice.

The C,E and S now look not only like no 1, 2 & 3 siblings but identical twins with different BMI. The design is great but not sure if this is the right direction Mercedes is taking. Especially between the C & E. I can differentiate between the 3-er and 5-er from 1 mile away but not for the C & E, maybe I old liow.

The CLA "new generation" really looks like just a facelift. The light clusters might be updated but the block shape seems the same, so the main frame looks unchanged.

Just new bumper fascias to make it look uglier. Looks similar to new E-class which.
