    Hi Khoi,
    I definitely recommend NGK IFR6Q-G,
    One of the Bosch is suitable for the NA V12 and one is suitable for the TT V12, but I can't remember which is which.
    There is a thread somewhere with lots of discussion about this.
    It's very important that you don't use the wrong plugs, otherwise the coil packs will fail quickly.
    Regards,
    Nick

    Hi Nick,
    My name is Khoi, and i am a new CL65amg owner. Currently, i have misfiring codes. I have read somewhere that wrong spark plug can cause the issue. I have seen you recommend 3 different part numbers: NGK IFR6Q-G or Bosch FR7KPP33U or FRKI332S. So which one are you highly recommended?
    In addition, my front damper/high pressure hose for abc system has just burst. The one that has the dead that does not connect to anthing. Do you recommend to have a shop to build one or just replace with oem? (part number would help so much, i have been searching for the part number but came up for nothing valid)
    Thanks so much Nick.

    Hi Nick,
    I came across your post whilst trying to do some research on the ABC system on my car. One of the pipes in my ABC system broke over the weekend. I took it to a local garage for them to diagnose what was wrong. We've identified the pipe that is leaking (due to corrosion) but due to the specialist nature of the work the garage have said I may be better seeking out an ABC experienced mechanic.

    Don't suppose you know of anyone in my area that I could go to do you? I live in Weybridge in Surrey (KT12/KT13 postcode area).

    Many thanks in advance,
    David

    Sorry, I wouldn't know about PAS pump conversions. I seem to have spent the last five years of my life trying to keep ABC running.

    Hey i've been going through a ton of posts trying to find an answer to this and its a bit of a struggle. I came across a bunch of your posts and i'm hoping you might know something about my situation haha

    So apparently its a blasphemy to do so but i converted to the strutmaster coilovers when my ABC went. I have 2001 s600 5.8v12. I read on some posts that the pump from the s430/s500 without ABC is a direct fit. Do you happen to know if this is the case? I'm trying to order the right part and get this done but its been a struggle. Also some people that used the non-ABC pump were saying the pulley has 6 groves instead of the 7 that i have on mine. Any suggestions and/or directing me to the right place would be really really appreciated.

    Hi Nick,
    I found your post via google search for turbo coolant seals: https://mbworld.org/forums/s55-amg-s...ml#post6103623
    As you know (since you responded in my thread), that I am already doing the driver side coil pack on S600 and I have also been told that I have a slow leak on my turbos. The Indy I went to said it appears they were coming from the bottom (I saw the green dyed coolant the person who sold me the car had in it come from the bottom), but I figure while I already have the coil packs out, I should just replace all the coolant seals on the top half as well. Seems people the done this with the engine in place. I just need the part numbers that you have in that pic you posted in the link above. If you have the part numbers for both top and bottom coolant seals that would be great. Thanks!

    Hi Anthony,
    Even the best cared-for car will be a money pit if you depend on a dealer to maintain everything. These cars are indeed difficult to maintain, but talk of $5-10k per year is exaggeration and scare-mongering IMHO. I spend about a tenth of that by doing work myself. There are lots of good methods.
    Regards, Nick

    Hi Nick,
    I saw some of your posts on this forum and it seems like you know a thing or two about V12 Mercs. I am considering purchasing a 2008 CL65 AMG with 110K miles for around $26K ($30K sticker), but I am unsure if it will be a money pit. It only has one owner, seems to be in good shape (I will take it to a mechanic to see if I decide to move forward with this), and has a clean title. I don't mind working on the car here and there, but I don't have the money to drop $5-10K+ a year fixing the car. I am also considering a 2016-2018 Chevy Camaro SS which costs a little more (I know they are fairly different vehicles, but I'm a fan of both :P), but I'm not sure if it is worth getting the CL over it. Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Anthony
