  10. Fuel gauge - Range - tank size

    Does anyone know how the fuel gauge is meant to work in the 453? Iíve flicked through the manual a number of times and not really found it detailed in there. Sometimes it comes up with a low fuel warning and flashes the last blob on the gauge. But not always. And the most fuel Iíve put in is...

  12. Brabus Remap

    I have been told by remap people that the new Brabus 453 is very hard to remap, this is due to the new Sieman's ecu that has been fitted. I am told that only a handful of companies do this in Germany. Is there any company that services Norfolk that can remap the above. Pity there is no Brabus...

  14. Anyone else running on superunleaded?

    I've never been keen running Turbo cars on 95 Ron. Be it my smart Roadster or Impreza Turbo's. The new C453 is meant to be fine on 95 Ron. So I've used this initially. But recently switched to 99 octane superunleaded. It's too early to say if mpg is improved or not. Although I'd say it's maybe...
