You guys probably wont believe it but we had a few customers come in with freshly tuned Benzes (at some local mechanic shops) with new plugs etc and they just didnt want to run right until we changed the new plugs (correct heat range, gap and all) to Bosch coppers. Another local mechanic claimed his Audi refused everything except Bosch plugs.
Hey guys, where can I get the german air here in the US? Ha,ha,ha!
You have to excuse me on my "fanatism", I am originally from Germany, so I am a bit more partial to german products and brands than the average Joe.
Now what about the silvers?
Any feedback on those?
My boss (former mechanic at MBZ of Hollywood, this guy worked on Elvis's 600 Pullman and still complains about he air-suspension on these cars) claims they are the best there is.

To 1991 500SEC: Glad you know and enjoyed Hilo. Great place but the climate is not too good for cars. Too humid and too much rain.
