Re: Hydropneumatic Strut Top Mounts

Re: Hydropneumatic Gas Cell Package

Re: Australian Police Adopt BMWs, Chryslers and Kias Oh My

‘Interceptor’ criteria is based on many factors and not purely speed or agility. If it was based on looks the Kia or new ‘Commodore’ wouldn’t get my vote!

Re: 6.9 Levelling Valves

I’m surprised MB detailed any valve repair whatsoever. I thought they were replace-only parts? If there was an official overhaul procedure for the valves could that suggest something similar exists...

Re: 10-Speed Transmission

Re: 6.9 Transmission Upgrade
