placo1, after having smogged many mercedes,there is something
about them that is much differant than most cars. the cats on these cars cool down fast. same as bmw.
the cats on mercedes seem to last almost forever.
if you are not sure about your car and its hc numbers, take it to a smog shop and have them precondition your cat.let them get it to
turn on. you will be amazed at how clean your car is at that point.
not sure if it's the surface area of the cat, but when it is fully fired up these german cats are great.
the smog numbers you have are from a cat that has cooled a little.that is why there is some 02 left over.your car is still to new, low miles, to have any real problems with the cat.
good luck and don't let these numbers worry you
