    which battery i should use

    I think Exide dealer has it but its not cheap.. the cheapest we found was the LUCAS battery (which supports idle/stop function) costed around 12k

    Since it has idle stop function, you can use LUCAS battery as well. One of my friend replaced his grace with the same and costed him around 11-12k

      @Hyaenidae how the hell did you come up with that story :D I don't have any elder brothers FYI #rofl

      I was in a hurry to buy a merc sometime back and then gave up the idea since i couldn't buy a good vehicle for my budget

      That's nowhere as exciting as my story 😎

      @Hyaenidae i second it :D 

  5. Guys, I'm hoping to install a Short shifter to my Honda City. I was doing some searching on internet and found out couple of brands where price varies. I would like to know the following;
    1) Any DRAWBACKS of installing one?
    2) What is the best or reliable brand?
    3) Will there be any issues with shifting gears? Because I once drove one of my friends ek3 with a short shifter and it was bit difficult to put it to Reverse gear
    4) Any other advantage other than the short throw?

    Note that, I'm planning to use my existing original shifter knob (since my mechanic told me, shifter knob weight plays a role in shifting)

    Hoping to hear from you experts !!!

    Need a solution for vibration when idle

    Great keep us posted. And as Rumesh mentioned better to check those small bits and pieces before going into major repairs.

    you are welcome. Keep us posted on your findings after tuneup.

    well , if that's the case you can change the gear oil as well with Honda recommended oil. Um not quite sure about the civic CVT multimatic gearbox, however in my fitaria i was advised to change CVT fluid in 20k intervals. but i usually does it around 15-18k to be on the safe side. if you have a Stafford workshop close to your place, i would suggest you to do the oil change their, their labor cost will be around 1500 and they usually have the recommended oil as well

    Better start with the Tuneup. My guess it should resolve your issue. Do you have any hesitations while changing gears? meantime get your gearbox oil checked as well

    First of all welcome to the forum.. Assuming a proper tuneup has not been performed recently, i would suggest you to start with it. Probably this could be due to clogged IACV or injectors as well. During the tuneup make sure to check all related components and clean/replace them accordingly..

    Check engine comes up when accelarate beyond 2000 RPM

    To start with, this car comes with a OBD1 port which is located under left dashboard. Port should look probably green colour or blue. Secondly, most of the garages have the bluetooth scanner. Go for a garage which has the cable scanner and those comes with a OBD1 adapter which can be connected to yours (as far as i know). Best thing is to get it scanned without replacing items blindly. Where do you live? If you are close by i can recommend a garage which has this scanner.
  14. OMG !! that feeling you get when you hit 5000+ rpm range + vtec kicking in, it was a so fun and i had it without any hesitation.. I think i should keep doing this more often so that i will fall in love with this again and again..

    RIP EK3 :D  you almost had me... but i guess i've got some more juice than yours or atleast better shifting  :D 

  15. Can't make my mind, getting rid of owning a MERC .. Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    I need one so badly

      Light of his life, fire of his loins

      And I'm off to the races, cases
      Of Bacardi chasers
      Chasing me all over town
      'Cause he knows I'm wasted, facing

      Because I'm crazy, baby

      I can see your faces, shameless
      Cipriani's basement
      Love you, but I'm going down

    2. PerfMad

    Mecedez Benz E220

    Hi Geeks, I'm planning on purchasing a W124 E220 Merc (300-) plate one and interested in knowing the below details; 1) Heard there are Indian made ones as well. What are the differences between german made and indian made? 2) What would be the fuel consumption be like? 3) Any specific issues with regards to Indian version? 4) Were there any Japan versions as well? Checked one car and the book said its Japan (car had leather seats too) 5) Any specifics i should look for before purchasing ? 6) How about E200 petrol version? what would be the answers for this variant for above questions? Thanks in advance !

    Mecedez Benz E220

    True that. Will see i will hunt until end of December probably, by then if i don't find a good one, plan is to give up the idea (may be buy his E250, when he plans to sell it )

    Mecedez Benz E220

    I checked two petrol versions, and one of them had fabric interior and the other was having leather. Both were facelifts. Went to check one petrol E220 last weekend and that was in really bad condition from inside (lot of rust) and it had a carb engine. Also checked a E300 diesel car, engine was smooth, but interior and body rust was there and paint job was not in good condition. I'm really having a difficult time in finding a good car. So far only option is to opt to E220 which i had a look initially. However my uncle asked me to look for a diesel rather than going for a petrol since petrol will not do more than 7 in city. All the Diesel versions i checked are from 1985-1989 years, except the E300 which was 1992/3. Assuming a 1996/7 E220 petrol (manual) car both interior and exterior in good condition, how much will it worth?
  20. Feels like giving up the MERC idea, because all the vehicles i went to see are not in great shape either body/interior or engine.. I think i started loving my daily more than i love mercs now.. Only 2 more benz to check then um officially gonna let this go for sometime. hmmmm :(

    Mecedez Benz E220

    There were two variants. The one you referring could be for the non-vtec. I think vtec variant came with 115bhp (if im not mistaken). And yes, true that its bit lighter and you get a decent pickup compared to vehicle which falls under same category i guess.

    Mecedez Benz E220

    Mine is not that fast. however i own a Honda city 2001 vtec car mate it provides decent amount of power like 115-130bhp i guess

    Mecedez Benz E220

    True that.. Totally agree with you. I'm actually not in a hurry to sell this. I will only sell this if the buyer is willing to pay my price. I've done alot of maintenance before its due as i initially had plans on keeping this for 4-5 years. This mood swing happened recently after i drove this merc and started liking it too though its not that sporty of fun to drive as mine. I guess i took a wise decision on taking you'll opinion before selling mine. Even one of my friend who owned a 2004 crv sold and bought a w210 and he claimed the parts are way cheaper than his honda
