    40ps and 50Nm just to confirm.

    So had the chip a week still no pics sorry.

    What I have noticed:

    The initial acceleration is better especially in S mode

    The midrange pull is very noticeable even in E mode.

    The mpg I've gone from average 49 to 58 so an added bonus as I drive a lot of miles.

    The card idel sound is different sound a lot deeper IMO was the first thing my mrs commented on.

    To be honest this does not transform the car into a 45 which some people may be expecting, no chip will. You can easily feel the difference but in my opinion it's only turned the car into what it should of been.

    Is it worth the £1600 plus fitting maybe? Maybe not? It will all come down to your expectations.

    I'd be interested to hear other peoples opinions.

    Cheers

    Eski

    So you guys are saying .. I have the 220 diesel, with this chip it will have better milage per gallon .. and more speed with just a chip? http://www.brabus.com/en/raster.php?...77&kategorie=9 .. the acceleration to 100 aint that noticeable though? Since you only get 0.3 am i wrong?

    Cla1988 has that been verified by mb that your warranty won't be void. I know some say they will pick up the warranty but it's only to cover the chip not the rest of the car.

    Worth a question.

    Regards

    I asked my dealer and he told me that if I want the chip I should opt for the brabus or carlsson as they are the safest and more reliable. Moreover he told me since its nor remapping and just plug and play it wont null the void. Moreover the carlsson guy i sent, told me:
    "Regarding the guarantee:
    We grant a guarantee of 3 years on our C-Tronic Kit itself.
    The guarantee term of your car in combination with our product runs until the vehicle has accumulated a total running time of 100,000 km, but
    will, at the latest, expire 24 months after initial registration"

    I think this is pretty reliable.

    Is still get the mb bit in writing. Have have a signed letter from
    Mb saying my warranty won't be void with this chip.

    Better to be safe than having to battle it later.
