    Hi Whipplem,

    I saw on this forum that you reflash SAM pre-facelift w204 to retro fit the 2012 led tail lights. Where are you around?
    Could you give me a email back @ [email protected]

    Thanks,
    Jay Dee

    Whipplem104,

    I sent you a Private Message a few days ago. I haven't heard anything from you. Was just wondering if you ever got the message?

    Thanks

    Serge,
    It is possible to run a spacer on the ring gear but I have not done this. As far as fitting it in a w201 that should not be a big problem. Both differentials were mounted in the w124. Worst thing would be making a custom rear cover for mounting. Custom half axles and maybe driveshaft. All very easy to do but costly. As far as your engine goes. That is hard for me to advise. Depending on what your costs are and the damage to the engine. Here it is fairly cheap to buy a used engine so that is what I normally advise.

    Hi!
    Hope you can spare some time as counsultant for me)
    First of all i wanted to ask you a question about your experience with quaife differentials. Right now i plan of building a track day car, and always wanted to make it from a w201. I've always wondered the way to get a quaife unit in it. From what i know, from a question of subframe and halfaxles, may be with some custom engineering it is possible to bolt a 210mm case in w201. Yet as i know, the quaife qdf5v bolts up to e500 w124, with 2.82 gearing (housing 129-351-05-05 and carrier 26-350-09-23). and said to work only with 3.07 at most. Yet w129 320sl uses the same case 129-351-05-05 but with different carrier 140-350-27-23 and 3.69 gears. How d you think, is it possible to get a quaife in this case with 3.69 gears? May be with spacer between a crownwheel and carrier? Or may be you have even made such a thing? The only other choice is a giken lsd, but i dont like clutch types and dont wont to use a bimmer e36 as a base instead, even although it is more practical.
    And if you dont mind, may i use your experience some more?
    I recently got a problem with a w211 e200k - it overheated due to thermostate failure. That resulted in changing the head gasket and while doing that we mentioned that pistons do have some free movement side to side inside a cylinder ( 1mm may be). Looks like due to this overheat the piston rings got damaged too. The car actually starts and moves normally, but the check engine light engages in 10 min after start. How do you thing, is it worth overhauling an engine or i'd better look for another engine or sell the car as is?

    Best wishes
    Serge

    Hello from Australia,

    I know that maybe you are getting a lot of those queries, but is it possible to help us out with SAM coding issue, such a hotly discussed topic in the forums at present.

    I understand you did managed to get 100% functionality, where's we got the brake lights turned off, however we could not see/work out an option for turning off the fogs in Star Diagnostic Developer menu

    Any assistance in that respect will be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Please feel free to forward any correspondence to:

    Best Regards Robert
