    Beru glow plug

    I was taking out my glow plugs as 3 out of 5 are dead. They are a mix of Bosch and Beru glow plugs. After searching the net it seems like Beru is a better glow plug than Bosch. But I can't find where I can get them. Does anyone know where I can get them? And what brand does MB sell? Thanks

    Immobiliser/Alarm, yes or no?

    Now that I have got myself a G, I wonder if I should install an immobiliser/Alarm or not. I don't want to lose my G. But I see some people against it. It looks like the G had an alarm before because of stickers. Also the central locking isn't work.
