Modify Bluetec Technology of ML 320 2009 model
Can somebody help.
I imported a Bluetec ML320 to Africa for my use. Unknown to me I discovered that the sulfur content of the diesels sold in Africa is too high and as such can potentially damage my car. I approached my my local Mercedes garage where I was initially informed that they could tropicalise, by modifying the bluetec. When the application was sent to Germany, Mercedes Germany refused to give permission. When I complained, I was informed by a representative from Mercedes Germany that it is not technically possible to convert Bluetec to blue efficiency models commonly found in Africa. I doubt the sincerity of this statement. I understand that all, that is required for the modification is is to put in a new exhaust system and reconfigure the control unit.Is there anybody with any technical knowledge about the bluetec who can advise?
