Bro Mabel,

What can I say? You make this forum great! With such efficiency, you should run for political office. You would serve the people well.


My pleasure G !

You are the 2nd benzers who said that..

Ironically, many moon ago in PRU 11, I was offered to stand as a candidates. I turn it down knowing how taxing it is to be a State Assembly man (my FIL was a State Assembly man)..

Will keep this in mind as one of the things to do when I decided to retire from my present job..

12. Handling vs Comfort for your rides?

One of the most asked question in this Forum to balance handling vs. Comfort. Here is simple table for your tires correct size, compliments from Brother renngrun.

W124:

15 : 195/65 or 205/60
16 : 205/55
17 : 215/45.................225/45 slight oversize but boleh.
18 : 225/40 ................235/40 -----ditto--------

W210:

15 : rare, except Classic manual spec! 205/65
16 : 215/55
17 : 235/45
18 : 235/40 and 265/35 on staggered fitments.
19 : 235/35 and 275/30 on staggered fitments.

13. Where can I find information on ICE, Navigation system or GPS systems?

You can find all these information in the following thread:

http://www.mybenz.org/zoopp/html/modules/newbb/viewforum.php?forum=12

14. What is a standard temperature for a Mercedes Benz?

• Mercedes Standard Operation temperature is 90'c - 110'c
• When the Engine Coolant Temperature reach the Maximum 110'c, the Cooling Fan (addition air con fan @ auxiliary fan). The Suction Fan (control unit operated) should Cut-in with Fully Operation (High Speed) to cool down the system to prevent the engine from overheating
• 120'c is a maximum temperature (OVERHEATED). The engine Should STOP ... For Cooling Down (You May realize THE AIR CON SYSTEM is WARM)
• 130'c is too late ... ENGINE IS ALREADY OVERHEATED!!!

15. What are the benefits of becoming a member?

This community has the most extraordinary collection of talent of Mercedes knowledge that has ever been gathered at any car community in this country. You will benefits:

1. Knowledge sharing
2. Access to competence across the county.
3. Having Fun

Reference on item on 1 and 2, here is my personal experience:

- Pre-Mybenz : You are the mercy of your mechanic

- Post-Mybenz : Usually, you now come to the workshop more prepared and at times you are able to advice your mechanic..

Here are two good threads that can attest on item 3:

1. Forum Ganja, You know it's addictive.....

http://www.mybenz.org/zoopp/html/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=8712&forum=1

2. Why We Join and Loved MyBenz?

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I register?

You register by clicking on the 'Register here' link near the top of the page. You will be asked to choose a user name, password and enter a valid email address. In addition there will be some other fields to which you will be invited to respond. Some will be mandatory while others are optional. Once this is complete you will either be fully registered, or in some cases you may have to click on a link in an 'activation email' sent to your email address. Once you have done this you will be registered.

Note that entering your email address will not leave you open to 'spam', as you can choose to hide it from other board users. You'll probably be able to allow other registered users to contact you via email, but the system won't display your email address to them unless you give permission.
