Benz Model: c200 cgi FL
Message:
New to W204
Dear Sifus & Otaix2,

Good day to you all.

I'm a newbie here......

I'm extremely excited as i'll be taking delivery of my c200 cgi on 28/12, brand new (not pre-reg/pre-owned).

Actually, i wanted the pre-reg (0 milleage) as it was 5k cheaper but since my loan was approved late, the pre-reg promotions were phased out.
Thus this car was offered to me at 235,888 by c&c.

This would be my first ownership of a benz and my current ride is a wira 1.5 manual......

For the past 2 days, I cant sleep well also....keep dreaming about my car je......and i just cant wait for the days to past soon.

And congratulations Manburg on your new c180.....was reading all your posts (and of course thanks to Elhefe - for sharing your very valuable user experience).

I just want to know, what are the first few things that I should do in the early stages of ownership.....

1) Can use RON 95 or should i use ron 97? & petronas ok?
2) First 1000km, whats the fastest(speed) i can go?
3) When i off the engine, should i off the a/c?
4) When i start from overnight parking, should i idle it till the temp is normal and then start moving / immediately move upon start up?
5) Any other inputs would be helpful too....

Thank you all.

Have a great weekend!!!

Ha ha ha ... I know that feeling well. I also couldn't sleep well the night before I took the delivery of my car. I mean, you can never suppress the excitement of getting a brand new car, and a Mercedes Benz at that, no matter how old (or young) you are. Some might consider it akin to getting a new wife, though I tend to slighty disagree because a new car, as opposed to a new wife, can be driven at any time according to your own whims and fancies

Thanks for the wish bro. I just wanted to share as much as possible with other members of the club, for the common benefit of all.

These are my answers:

1. Look at the pix below, as a pix tells a thousand words.



By the way, this was snapped of the inner side of the fuel filler flap.

As regards the brand of the fuel, is there any marked difference actually between these different companies? But I don't think you can go wrong with Petronas.


2. I would say, as fast as your right foot would want it to go (and having the balls to do so). Having said that, I would advise you to look at the following two pix:








Those snaps were taken from page 154 of the Manual which you'll receive. As MB is the maker of the car, I believe they must surely be the most authoritative source to tell us the owners as to how to use their products. So, my paramount advice is to read the Manual.

P/S My SA also told me that there's no running-in period.


3. Nothing is mentioned about this in the Manual. I used to switch off my A/C in all my previous rides before I turn the ignition off. But I'm not doing so in my current ride. I don't think there'd be any problem with that, unless someone can point me to a cogent reason stating otherwise. I think it all boils down to personal preference.


4. For cars of the older generations, this might be the established petua. I'm not sure as to whether for cars with technology as advance as at present would still be required to do this. But I do give it 5 - 10 seconds before I move the car ...


5. Enjoy your car to its full potential!

Good luck and happy riding! ( ... and have a good night sleep)

Re: New to W204
welcome basikal....(at first I thought you upgrade your ride from basikal to Siklas hehehehe)

Waaaahhh RM235K for C200 CGI? Is this the pre-FL model ie from before July 2011? If it is the FL model...than you are damn lucky to get that price.

Answers:

1. Can use RON95. I tried various RON 97....to me for city driving....buang duit saja... but for long distance...best pakai RON97

2. I whacked the car till 180 km.hr kalau tak silap. Not saying that you can but I was not worried that I will damage the engine.

3. I turn off. Just habit from previous cars.

4. No need to wait for idle temp, start and go immediately.

5. No other input.

I'm sure it's the FL version. You'd be surprised elhefe to know the amount of discount these dealers were willing to offer in order to clear their stocks looking at the impending 2013 and to also meet their targeted sales.

Basikal has really got himself a nice treat there.

Bro basikal,

Itu yg aku ckp you got a good deal. I remember Dec 2010, there was a debate on my MBM tak bagi discount like other car makers when coming to year end. The answer is usually that MBM don't really need the sale.

Discount usually comes when a new model/FL coming out. Like in April to June 2011 when the FL is about to come out, the pre FL was sold at RM 230K.

Anyhoooosss,,,push for the car to be delivered on 24th Dec hehehehe kira macam Santa Claus hantar lay hehehe,

bro Elhefe....
after the recent release of the latest w212 FL(should be in Malaysia in the next 2 months approx),
i also think that there's another facelifted 'c' in the loop for 2013. Just my 2 cents only.

When is the next model 'c' class expected to be released? 2013 or 2014?

Anyway bro, my SA says can deliver the car by this coming Friday 21/12..... wohoooo!!! but hopefully no kill joy news of unexpected delay.....

Bro Manburg,

Thats the exact color and interior. The same as yours...hehehe
