    200* for 25 minutes and they came off pretty easily. Retrorubber will be used to reseal them.

    Nope, leaving the original projector in place. I’m happy with the lights using H9 bulbs. Just wanted all the chrome to be gone.

    Great feature! Now if Mercedes was reliable, easy to work on, and cost of ownership wasn't so high, they would be great vehicles!

    Sorry, I didn't get to wash the 4runner till today.
    No condensation anywhere & I use my pressure washer and then hand wash & rinse. I would call their BS & go see another dealership!
    Maybe check the bulb gasket or whatever you call the housing that holds the bulb in. Socket & gasket maybe...

    Well, This is my girlfriends new SUV and she love's it so far I tried to steer her in many other directions but I stayed clear of the of the conflict. The SUV itself is nice with a ton of "TECH" we got them to cover the maintenance for the term of the 3 yr lease.

    Lease is the way to go with a Mercedes. They are very nice, super comfortable, just not reliable long term. 100K miles if that and they start getting real expensive.

    Mounted the rigid diffused reverse lights. Sorry I've got pics but no time for a write up. The dash screen pic, the runner is about 45 feet to the garage
    Pain in the neck to get relays and wires in the hatch.

    Yes indeed! This will cost her nothing other than lease payment each month. Just the first 3 yrs alone maintenance costs are over $1,500. first service and oil change is 10K $370/ 20K $640/ 30K $750......:eek::spending:

    Nice! I like how we (most of the people on this forum) get a new runner and mod it out IMMEDIATELY! We had Sliders, Skids, Tires, Lift and Prinsu installed prior to the first service haha! The dealership mechanic wouldnt leave my wife alone about the mods haha.
    PS, Put on shoes... you'll catch a cold! :D

    Decided I didn't like the look of the chrome lug nuts but also didn't want to buy aftermarket lugnuts after reading reviews about how quickly they rusted or faded out. Buying the OEM Toyota lugnuts simply was not an option ($$$$$) either. Then I found these guys (colorlugs.com) and for $25 I added these simple caps. I figure if they aren't worth a flip or fade etc I'm only out $25 and about 5 minutes of my time.

    1.5" lugs with wheel locks. I like the simplicity of putting them on and they even came with a little extractor tool to help remove them if you need to take off a tire.

    None yet but looking for some
    First, thank you to everyone who posted about their truthfull experiences at the dealerships with regards to the maintenance.

    I did the first oil change myself and installed the fumoto drain valve F103s (it fits fine with no issue) changed out the plastic oil filter housing with the aluminum one 15620-31060, and replaced the filter 04152-yzza1. I used the Motivx Tools Engine Oil Funnel (thread-in kind), all from Amazon. 6.6 quarts of 0w20 full synthetic for auto parts store. If I'm correct the oil drain cover plate bolts were 21 ft/lbs and the Pro skid plate bolts were 33ft/lbs. It went smooth as silk once I had all the parts and tools.

    Then I detailed the interior with some 303 Aerospace Protectant. And installed the weBoost Drive Reach. I installed the exterior antenna on the passenger side behind the roof rack. I needed a 5ft SMB extension antenna cable to reach the unit mounted under the passenger seat. It's been a busy 2 days! Tomorrow is a pro exterior cleaning and ceramic finish.

    that’s pretty cool. The chrome on the lugs never really stood out to me but for 25 bucks may do that. What holds them on?

    Anybody run Baofeng ham radio here? Just picked up my ham license and was looking for ways to mount my handheld for offroading trips. If you do post a pic of your setup. Need some ideas.

    We kinda just let ours bounce around haha. I do use the "CB" style mic/speaker combo and clip it to shirt/seat belt etc. We have not come up with a good solution yet.
