Re: Best high milage oil for diesel engine

Good advice there ...

What engine? If it's a toyota you might want to look into the timing belt and tensioner pulley too.

Re: NEED ADVICE. Ownership of a Mercedes Benz

Good advice so far .... get the amg kit, stay away from the diesel esp if it's being imported. And budget for maintenance. This ain't no B14 you're buying. State of the art, precision engineering that needs to be taken care off. Lots of electronics too which can be problematic at this. But the thril...

Re: Advice on Pros and cons of 2017 BMW 330e

I’d personally purchase a regular f30. BMW uses a very mild hybrid system so not major fuel savings and since they didn’t come trinidad locally I would be worried about special parts/ sensors etc I would agree with j.o.e. as maintenance would be a bit higher on a regular Beamer much less a hybrid. ...
