I tried Bosch platinum plugs on my 190E and the car did not perform right. It would miss and backfire with no rhyme or reason. I went to to local authorized distributer of Bosch parts and they told me that the Mercedes Benz engines with the high voltage ignition systems did not like the platinum spark plugs. I immediately switched back to the OEM Bosch plugs with the miss and backfire gone.
