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.

Here are two good threads that will help you decide which rim and set-up is suitable for your need.



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

You can find all these information in the following thread:


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.

1. Beside "berjamaah", it also follows the sunnah


2. Knowledge sharing and access to competence across the county. 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..

3. Having Fun

Here are 4 good threads that can attest to this

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


• Why We Join and Loved MyBenz?


. We create an ICON to our cars


. We even creatively collaborate to compose our 1st Novel


“Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country”.
