    Cool 2012 E500/E550 M278 air filter change and top speed limiter delete?

    hi, i how do you change the engine air filter on the 2012 E500/550?

    Also, does anyone know how am i able to delete the 120km speed warning on the 2012 E500, as the local dealer in Saudi Arabia said that they need 3 months to get the code?

    The air filter should be an easy change, even info should be in the manual on how to do it. If you can't find it @Weistec should be able to assist you.

    Regarding the top speed warning any of the tunes available should be able to address this. And give you a lot more power Click here to enlarge

    Ya, it's a pretty simple install.

    Let us know if you can feel any difference.

    What about the speed limiter delete?

    It isn't going to be a huge power gain like a tune or anything but should allow the engine to breathe easier. Glad you like it.

    I think your only option at the moment is Eisenmann.

    thanks for your reply, i have taken my 2012 e500 to Jaffali in Jeddah again last week to solve some issues and i have asked them to delete the speed warning again, and you know what, they said the code did not arrive yet from Germany.
    can you let me know who did you talk to so that i can go back to them agine for the 3rd time.
    by the way i called Dubai and they told me the same, it will take them 2 hours not 3 months. pls advise me who to contact.
    thank you

    Wow, that's going to limit the boost.

    hi, i have an E500/550 with Brabus tune B50-500 kit. i bought a downpipe from another tunner and i was told to send the ECU unit to delet the O2 sensor. when is sent my ECU i desided that i want more power from the new tunner for my M278 engine and i asked them to go head and delet the O2 sensor for the downpipe and install their ECU tune.
    now the new tunner is asking me that i have to locate the PIGGY BAG of Brabus and remove it and bring it back to stock or i will have a big problem after i install the upgraded ECU tune.
    i need to know how i can locate the PIGGY BAG and how do i get it back to stock. any advise.

    The Brabus tune is a piggyback tune?

    Well, didn't Brabus tell you where they put it? Is it not an OBDII piggyback?

    thats what the new tunner is saying because it is a plug and play power box.
    BRABUS PowerXtra CGI consists of a processor controlled additional unit for the engine management
    of the E 500. It gets connected to the standard engine harness by the delivered plug & play wiring harness. The kit is completed by an additional radiator for charge air cooling and a Vmax integrated to the performance kit-control unit. It is ready to start out of the box and easy to fit due to the plug & play

    thats from Brabus.
    i did not see the kit installed as i was in Saudi and the car was at Brabus Dubai.

    I don't understand, you should see the box. All that is necessary should be physically removing it.
