Re: New MOT rules regarding dpf (May 2018)

Cheers , yes flogging it , ideally I'd like someone here to take it on and enjoy it . The Merc has so much tech on it I'll still be learning a year on . It's down on mpg on say a 30 min commute by 10 mpg but considering the weight , bhp , torque ( same as std B8 A4 3.0 tdi ) and it's two turbo's it'...

Re: New MOT rules regarding dpf (May 2018)

I doubt Mercedes will ever see it again . I've already serviced it despite being serviced with the addition of a Gold plug sump plug ( stainless steel ). The only time VW saw the Pissrat was for the front wings , but as they had been barely satisfactory sprayed up prior to sale , a successful claim ...

Re: New MOT rules regarding dpf (May 2018)

More Hyundai i40 tourers about because of Hyundai' 5 year unlimited mileage warranty . There is only one S204 taxi in town and it's a nightmare to keep clean black and certainly not an AMG Sport . I've not even washed it yet and I've had it a month , ( wheels washed plenty thanks to OE brake pads ) ...

Re: New MOT rules regarding dpf (May 2018)

I can see the logic !

W204 is a saloon .

C204 is a coupe .

S204 is a wagon , aka 'T' ( Touring ) model .

Re: Keeping our Passats running smooth..

Yes the 2 Stroke left injector deposits , but the study was using the wrong 2 Stroke , they used a semi / full synthetic JASO FC . We use JASO FB which is always mineral so it both dissolves and burns completely in the diesel . If JASO FB blocked injectors we would know about it on here , plenty wit...

Re: My B5.5 and I.. In it for the long haul...

Lol .

That's a good result for 2T , but...

The 2.80 was probably the first acceleration and fast pass on the old super slack regs of a 3.00 pass value .

0.7 would of been multiple .

Isn't 0.60 the VIN value ?
