Morning All, Just picked up a 2004 W203 270CDI Auto as my first Mercedes, also my first automatic car. i wanted to go for something that has the power and economy of a larger capacity diesel without the headaches of the dreaded DPFs so this seems like a good bet. read plenty on the reliability of these cars and the potential for tuning them as well (more on that later). previous cars include plenty of VAG diesels and Japanese petrol cars, my last car being an EP3 Civic type r which has to go due to a change in a commute, me missing the torque of a diesel and being sick to death of spending most of my time in petrol stations. plenty of my mates have mercs including some ridiculously tuned old diesels and a few AMG examples they definitely rubbed of on me when it came to my new car thoughts. first plan of action for my car is an Auto box service and some new wheels as the ones i currently have are not to my taste. then look at a remap + decat. hope to have some good discussions with you all.
