You want smoke?

Sure, just tromp the accel every time you take off. Just hold it hard to the floor every time. That will surely p*ss people off behind you.

Might even make people take real notice of and consequently reevaluate their views of Mercedes-Benz. Slick..... but fun.

But, what the heck....... we're only talking about the tree hugger bio-extremist hybrid nut cases right?

Come on, do you really think a great cloud of black smoke for fun has no long term cost (image-wise or other)? How about this for starters: Mercedes equals SH*TBOX. Do you think that another driver(s) might get that impression today?

A thought.

Look out....Old Fart, MBL

Yes there is but I highly recommend against it as you could damage your IP, and those are expensive to rebuild or replace. Please leave it alone. 617s are so strong they can tolerate neglect (for a while…) but can’t handle abuse.

It’s not unusual for some diesels to puke out a cloud of smoke under WOT or when first started. As diesels are not the fastest things in the world it is a good way to discourage tail-gaters. But it should be used rarely and not artificially induced.

hmmm..... i didn't really know that, learn something new everyday i guess. But why would one want a constant out-pour of black smoke while they drive? That i don't understand.

JDC,

I think you're missing his point.

He wants to impress onlookers with an impressive display of black smoke, not unlike a male peacock's display during mating. This would be an attempt to draw attention to oneself..... Well maybe, as no one could appreciate one another, especially a stranger, were they choosing to belch black smoke out their a*s.
But, I'm not a diesel guy.... maybe I've my head tucked.... Oh well............, the air is better

I ain't Freud, but really.......

Read MBL's post - I believe he'd got it right.

I restrained myself from replying when I read this post after it appeared. I now think it must be a clever attempt to provoke people into voting pro choice.

Notice how the thread author has yet to comment? He's probably outside mounting a 2-litre bottle of coke filled with Mento's to his rear bumper.

You have to be young and stupid before you can become old and wise.

Now if you wanted to really impress the fellow motor heads and Mercedes enthusiasts, just tweak that SD real hard so you could spin the rear tires bigtime, then purchase some of those new Kumhos.

You'd make your mark the first time you punched the loud pedal, guaranteed!
