What other info do i need to share here? I just want to fix the car but the MB Taiwan is asking for way too much money. $46,600USD that's a lot more. And a brand new car in the states only worth $39,000USD
    There response will be " prove your piggyback didn't cause it". And thus you are stuck where you are, trying to source and pay for an engine.

    That'd do it. I'll say MB has a decent argument here. I'm assuming you probably did a dyno run too with the chip so potentially not following run-in procedures giving them another option too.

    I'd spend the money on a lawyer or look for a written off car that has an engine in tact. May take a long time to find one though.

    I'd also remove the pics of the install from your Facebook page. Not helping your case here at all.

    Just out of curiosity was this your car or a clients?

    Yeah it's not going to be tough for MB to see pics of your car,plate and engine along with comments about your piggy back. Unfortunately they hold the power, you'd be better off with a Chinese knockoff engine.

    Isn't the 220 CDI Diesel installed in a number of other M-B models? Look for an engine from other model Class cars which have been out longer. Look for a car that's been totaled in the rear for an engine.
