    Car is booked at the MB dealer at the end of the month for an air bag recall and I’ve asked them to check the software to see if any updates are required for it.

    Transmission service kit ordered for the car so I plan on having that done in June at a local shop that specializes in Euro cars.
    Previous owner never did it so I know it’s past due.
    I’ll be curious to see if it’s ever been changed.
    (The joys of buying used with NO service records).

    I contacted Euro Charge in North York and inquired if my car has been tuned/serviced there previously.
    I was hoping to provide them my VIN # and they could tell me but unfortunately that was not the case.
    He said they don’t keep that information and I would have to contact the original owner to find out.
    Original owner leased the car so that’s a dead end.
    He did say however if the dealer installs software it will be flashed back to stock and recommended I go there after if I want any performance tuning done which I’m not interested in at this point.

    And lastly booking the 3m gloss black vinyl wrap for the chrome delete shortly.

    Front splitter installed on Saturday during the storm while it was on the lift to make it easier.
    I had to wait nearly 2days to lower it back down however when power got restored to check it out.
    My son and I will never forget doing that one together.
    Real happy with the subtle look of it though.

    I was happy just to get my garage door closed before the storm hit.

    Thank you…it’s a really nice car to drive.
    Awesome combination of power, handling and brakes right from AMG.

    Just received the last item for my complete tune up on the car.
    8X OEM Delphi ignition coils.
    Now I know when and what maintenance has been done and by who.

    Power outage left the Benz dealer in Whitby without any power for days and they had to reschedule my appointment.

    New appointment for recall is now set for next week and I’ll probably get them to do the trans service while it's there.

    Well…..I probably should have known better BUT the wife wants to sell the car!

    She loves it BUT with the combination of a V8/500HP and the outrageous price of Shell 91 (2.39L) it has totally taken the enjoyment out of driving it for her.
    Keep in mind she’s never owned a V8 or a vehicle with over 200HP before and when she drives it….she drives it painfully slow and utilizes about 5% of that AMG performance.

    She’s been trying to convince me to sell one of the Mustangs to keep it but I’m struggling with that one so unfortunately the Benz is currently listed on Kijiji and Auto trader and going to see what happens.

    If anyone is interested they can just send me a PM.

    Air bag recall completed as well as the software upgrade on the car.
    Unfortunately the trany service kit didn’t get installed so I will be going elsewhere for that shortly.

    I’m still in shock in regards to MB labour rate of $177 per hr so it won’t be going back there anytime soon.

    Wife has been driving the car lately and really enjoying it….which is nice to see and hear.
    I just have to make sure it always has fuel in it.
