C220 CDI
Hi and Assalamualaikum..

I'm planning to bring back my C220-CDI or BMW 3 series to Msia. Thus I need some inputs from all the experts here. Is it worth to use a diesel C220 in Malaysia in terms of maintenance-wise as I prefer this baby than my other car? What about the second hand price compare to the other C-class as I'm planning to sell this after few years.

Thanks in advance for all the help and input.

Satu Malaysia...

1. Malaysia diesel is quite dirty, only complied to EURO 2 recently this year whereas developed countries are using EURO 4. As a result the fuel injectors tend to fail prematurely and are quite costly to replace.

2. There are not many Diesel Mercs on the road compared to Petrol versions, as a result spareparts are more expensive to source. Parts from chopshop/breakers are also hard to come by.

3 . In general diesel mercs have lower resaale value due to lower demand. e.g. a 1996 W202 Diesel sells for about RM30K+ compared to a similar age petrol W202 sell for RM40K+.

waalaikumsalam amed5678,

i never had exp in driving, owning and selling diesel merc but will agree with hoggies, due to the low demand, not many diesel powered engine merc on malaysia road and therefore low supply/demand of spareparts hence expensive, the resale value also is low..

Re: C220 CDI

A friend of mine owns a W203 C270 CDi and she spends quite a bit on maintenance as compared to petrol engine... but the torque is simply amazing.

If maintenance cost is your main concern, I would suggest you stay away from it.

Re: C220 CDI
Wow, someone in the same shoe as I am. Was planning to bring back my C220 Cdi as well. Sayang kat kereta ni, I've been using it extensively to travel, both work and leisure. Clocked almost 128,000 and is 4 years old. Still going tough like it was once out of the showroom. Tak pernah rosak, just once the EML came on, hantar ke specialist. Ingatkan DPF failing, rupanya one of the sensor kaput.

My cousin has a diesel brabus back in KL, and he's spending like waterfall. But his is a performance tuned car, and mine is a consumer. Nak tanya, if anyone has the experience, spare parts diesel is it much more expensive in MY?

Really not planning to part with the ride. Maybe go back cuti in March nak survey harga spare part..

Assalamu'alaikum & Hi all,

I'm in the same bench of amed and ismaia. I'm a Malaysian from abroad as well. Bought a slow C180K (petrol) year 2006 from UK and planning to bring it back to Malaysia.
I like this car.. but the higher compression ratio for C180 make it difficult to make any engine upgrade to gain more HP.
Anyway.. there are still room to make some upgrades..but not that much. I hope I could see you guys members of MYBENZ to talk more about the car & sembang2 sambil minom teh tarik.. I miss that very much..there's no teh tarik here.. sigh..

Hi ismaia,

ahaha.. kenal Rashdan tu.. gile photographing..Kalau jupe dia tolong sampaikan salam..kata Zaky from Helsinki kem salam.. ekekeke..
Reflash ECU bole squeeze some power ofcourse.. But I just ordered Kleemann Headers from Kleemann USA. They offered me a REALLY..REALLY good price (compared to some seller here selling the Headers for a whopping RM8900)..Should gain some more HP and if you want, Kleemann K Box should top up some juice as well, tapi that K Box is pretty expensive.
