Re: Gear box

Got mine back, for the second time last Thursday. Only to take it back again 15 minutes later as the AMG “Specialist” didn’t know how much coolant to put in it 🤨 https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190219/f238aa95c03ff7e44a3f96744bfee206.jpg All seems well! They blamed the second fault on the replac...

Re: Tyre talk...

In for its first MOT today. Found that both front tyres have cracked on the inside wall.
These are Michelin’s fitted only 14 months ago. 10k miles. Guess I’ll try for a warranty on these. Ridiculous.

Re: gearbox re-call

Hi, So 9 months left on the warranty. The car has only done 7800 but all this talk of gearbox problems has me a bit twitchy... I’d love to know what the % failure rate is and if it’s one of those early life failures... I though I would mail Mercedes to see if they were prepared to extend some sort ...

Re: Water Meth

Curious as I’ve run Meth in the past on my old car. Are you tuning for it? Also what kit did you lump for?

You should be able to just tap into the OEM pipe but what location are you thinking of?

Re: gearbox re-call

Thought I’d update you on the progress. Dropped the car off last Monday expecting it to take 3 days. A week late and I’m still in the courtesy car. Long story short, the ‘specialist’ tool used to separate the gearbox from the engine was received broken. Hopefully be back in the 45 this week Fingers...

Gear box

If you experience this issue and the dealer can not replicate it, tell them to look for a Mercedes AMG issued “Tip Sheet” on the subject. From recollection it’s called something like Gearbox metal scraping noise or similar. Although Mercedes Benz Brighton couldn’t replicate the issue they bothered t...
