hi there MB gurus. bought my self a 2004 G400 CDI, love diesels.
my first G, and so far i love it. quality feel and ride comfort is nothing i ever experienced. came from a toyota landcruier 120/lexus GX470 on 38" tires fully customized. it is two different cars in build quality i must say.

had some expenses though. but is still on warranty from the dealer so not everything out of my wallet :) thank god.

new glow plugs, all 4 springs of the car, both hot water circulation pumps, new fan belt, new head light adjuster, new brakes all around, sensor for the windshield washer unit, and much TLC.. still have to replace rear SAM, and glow plug relay. also just shipped my front and rear propeller shafts to a driveline specialist for new joints and balancing because of vibrations.

most of this is done by my self, have a fully loaded workshop, but it is different to work on a mercedes vs the japs i have been riding for 12 years now.. much is learn as i go..

i have gotten myself access to the EPC from mercedes. but when i put my vechicle VIN in it gives me two choises,

"37N up to CHASSIS 144225" or
"62U as of CHASSIS 144226"

how do i find out what i have, been looking for a similar number on the cars plates etc. but no luck.

also, been reading alot about epc, das, wis xentry... what is what? i really would love a repair/service manual for my G. what is the easiest way to obtain such? star diagnosis is a dream, but quite expensive i think..

The last 6 digits of your VIN.

Dutch, do you know what is meant by the '37N' and '62U'? Judging by VINs pulled from eBay/autotrader, the 144225 to 144226 happened sometime during the period from October '03 to January '04 during the MY04 run.
