A180 w176 centre armrest tidy insert

Small but highly useful mod.
£6 from China via eBay
Item I received had the amg logo on the rubber inserts (removable) which wasn't on the original advert pictures but that doesn't bother me.
Quality great,  fit brill.  Top mod.

W176 a class a180 petrol top up oil

Car still running in do thought I'd check the oil.
Was at just over minimum
Topped up with some I had for the golf.
Hopefully not a sign of things to come,  may even quieten down the tappety noise
Also surprised to see the cars ecu up front in the crash impact zone.  Guess it keeps it cool but seems an odd place ( unless I'm wrong and it's the ecu for the lights etc but I doubt it)
Noticed eco mode doesn't stay enabled for the next day but does for minor journeys within the same day.
