Re: CRD oil on special

The only issue with MB229.51 approval is that it doesn't test for high temp deposits. Atleast with Mobil 1 ESP you have some confidence it meets the standard, but we don't know if others also do, or...

Re: Australia - TSB updates

Well I haven't heard of the DPF issue occurring for the MY15, I'm guessing that since they fixed it for the MY14s they have already updated the software in the MY15 at the factory. But either way...

Re: Australia - TSB updates

In that case, tell them its not centered and you want it fixed, they should fix it. If they say 'oh that's normal' then point them to the TSB.
