I've always used the screw method. Some kits come with a filter removal tool that's basically a fancy screw.

After consulting my colour to horsepower conversion chart it would appear that powder blue subtracts approx 15 horsepower.

Running 15 psi in your left front tire can cause your Mercedes to pull to the left!

I baked a really nice bundt cake with cream cheese frosting and trying not to forget I have an anniversary on the 21st...Whoops, wrong forum.

About a week ago I finally replaced the passenger park light that was broken last year by hail. I also replaced the headlights again since the ones I had replaced in 2014 were yellowed.

About 3 days ago I hit a pothole at 35 and immediately got DW. I also noticed that when I got on the centerline rumble bars I could feel it was wanting to develop.

I will get under it and do a good inspection if I find nothing I will have the tires balanced. I was hoping for a lost wheel weight again I had that happen in 2017 but did not get that lucky this time.

I've never checked which company has manufactured the gauges, but more than likely it is just a manufacturers' code for different types of similar- sized speedometers for different market areas.

"Type 19" indicates it's a metric (km/h) dash cluster, US ZJ clusters don't have that label.

The best part is that it goes up to 140mph.

When I bought my 5.9 and it was still on street tires, I tested how fast it goes. Speedometer was at around 220km/h
Just this week I tested it with the 33 x 12.50 Cooper Discoverer STTs, didn't take that long to accelerate to 190km/h (~115mph) on the speedometer - that's about 177km/h verified by GPS

220 km/h / 140 mph must be on a good day for a four-point-slow ....with tail wind.......going down hill....

With a 4.slow, it has to be a free-fall off the Preikestolen going full vertical splashing down into Lysefjord
