    Re: 2014 GL350 Bluetec- Why not?

    I have to agree with most of the comments. Great car and the particular one is probably a great find but I don't think it's worth the additional R200K. Try to negotiate it down. If not perhaps walk...

    Hie TimBru,

    You seem to have it all figured out. I agree with all you mentioned on the relative reliability of those diesels compared to petrols. The petrols must be the Kompressor versions that...

    Re: What is the value of this car?

    Small point of correction for the benefit of the Merc gurus here.

    There is no such thing as C180 Kompressor for a 2016 model C-class. There is no kompressor for this model year. Its just 'C180'....

    Re: Michelin - 90,000km and no end in sight

    Hmm that might not be the case. Depends which type of Michelin. The ones I have now have done 25000km and are gone but previously used 2sets contis which did 29000km each.

    Re: Engine sounds that are driving me crazy

    I totally disagree. The sound is what defines some vehicles and perhaps makes them special. AMG for example.
