Jared, any news on the radiator?


hahaha, here's my story last weekend. I'm totally decided to get rid of my old Behr radiator. But since I got no time on weekdays, I called up Delodur to quote for a Behr radiator last Friday, but no stock only Nissens is available, I also checked if they are open on Saturdays and they are. But since Nissens is not my top choice that time, I tried calling Europlus because I'll just use my wife's credit card to make the purchase and I was quoted for a Behr @ 24K!!! And it seems the person on the other end woke up in the wrong side of the bed haha. On the following morning, Saturday, after patching the large crack on the left side of the rad with an Epoxy Clay Steel, I made a run to Delodur just to find out they are on company outing! Dang, the guy I called up on the phone didn't even told me!! I have never been to Libis for the past 4 years and all U-turns has been sealed, the weekend traffic jam is building up on the opposite side and I have to get out of that area fast. In short, I was caught in the gridlock and has to remember my good old shortcuts which now has been sealed and re-routed. So I ended up running to Edsa from White Plains-Temple Drive-Meralco-Ortigas and finally southbound Edsa cutting through a nonsense jam at Guadalupe. Regardless of what type of car I'm driving, I don't want to be in that place and in that time of day anymore. :lol: So now, I got the time to call Enkat.


@Sir Relly

Thanks a lot!!


jared@threepointedstar
Ah, so that's why you've decided on Enkat. If it makes you happy, Nissens is just as good. I've had it on mine and has never given me a single problem. Of course the conditions are harsher back there, but if properly installed and taken care of, the cooling systems can hold their own.

Hopefully either way you find a good deal. Last time I've been to Libis may U turn slots pa. I wonder how it is now.

24K for a Behr radiator???thats too much, I just got a new Behr radiator for my W126 about 2 weeks ago, got it for 14.5K. I don't know where we got it from since Manhattan Motors arranged the purchase for me.

81 300SD W126
82 300D W123 (Used to be a 200G)
92 300E 2.6 W124
90 260SE W126
94 S280 W140
10 E300 Avantgarde W212 (Dad's)
Actually, Nissens is even cheaper by several thousands. But I'll be dropping at Enkat since Terence talks in "kabarkada" mode hahaha.

I reckon the U-turn slot underneath the new fly-over is still open... :D

Although, I live quite near Engkat... may bad experience ako dyan previously (long story)... so I just buy my parts elsewhere, Rona on the other hand is just a "branch"... everytime I ask if they have this or that, they would always say... "kukunin pa sa kabilang store"... oh well.... :? ... no pun intended.... just basing on personal experience... :)

U-turn or no U-turn, I'm not driving back there anymore. :D

I would like to see how Evangelista looks like now. Last time I've been there was 15 years ago looking for parts to restore my bro's Starlet. :D


jared@threepointedstar
Got it installed, finally... :lol:







Now I know why other people doesn't like Terence, but his no BS attitude prevented my car from being "taken for a ride" by unscrupulous mechanics. Not recommended for the weak-hearted or the onion-skinned :lol:


jared@threepointedstar
ang dilim ng loob ng constellation (enkat's shop), it's hard to get a good shot and besides too many hands are scrambling on it after Terence stormed at his crews. :lol:

Jared,

The brother of Terence is Philip who now runs the Constellation shop. Enkat is the parts supplier side. If you recall, Philip was with us at the UST display and sat at our table, talking mostly to Peter (they are 1st cousins i think). I've been their customer and personal close friend for a long time and they know their Benzes - their dad Jo (Jo-En) and brothers are an institution in local Benz history, maybe one generation ago. In fact, if you ever go up to Baguio and somewhere around Camp 7, you will see a house with a wall and it's got MB cars cut into the cement. That's theirs. Cool!

You summed it up, dealing with Terence is not for the fainthearted - but that's more often an appearance too. You can talk straight, discuss, bargain, even charm the guy. If you want help, he will give it to you but if you want an argument, he will give it back double. I think most of us are like that anyway, especially when you are very busy and to him, time is money. He appreciates straight talk as long as you cut out the zarzuela and sad stories we usually dish out when we shop.

Your experience is why I do not encourage recommending shops on this board - because one person's tea is another person's poison. And since we are so passionate about our cars, it is really up to us to discover who we like to deal with or not. I like Constellation because they are near my place, source the parts, warranty it but more importantly - they have the passion for cars too, particularly Benzes, that matches mine with no yabang or foolosophy in the conversation. Good luck to all of us in our quest for a home on the range for our Benzes. :wink:
hi martin,

+1 on your post re: Constellation.

me and my two other brothers have been bringing our cars to Philip for quite a while now. he is an honest guy, and will tell you nothing but the truth. no BS. he will also only sell you what you need. a simple call to Terence , and 10 mins, and your part will be there waiting for you. i also trust my cars there since malapit lang ako sa kanila (my office is along Filmore St. in Palanan). great service, wala akong masabi, and Philip is a great guy. in fact i will be there tuesday to bring my CLK 55 for oil change. :D

Oh I see, now I remember. I think I saw him at the shop but can't recall where I saw him last. :lol:

Yeah and now that I'm confident to bring my car to such places. I guess the Enkat/Constellation guys can deliver more on my future Benz requirements.

Now I got a couple of firsthand options to make sure Klaudia is well taken care of. :D

I'm going to reborn this thread, it's been dead for 1 year and 355 days. I know (personally)Terrence and Philip's father, his name was Jose Co called himself Joe, he is a Mechanical Engineering graduate as I recall and my late dad's boss, Joe and my dad opened Joen Auto Supply in July 1976 together in a small old apartment owned by the Co's at EDSA, Malibay Pasay City Still stands today, just days after my elder brother was born. In 1982, Joe opened another one in Cebu and he let my dad handle there, so, we relocated in Cebu and stayed there, He comes to Cebu for reading the usual branch's sales report and stayed for a day. Joen Cebu closed in January 2004, 2 years after my dad died for unknown reason, my family decided among ourselves to stay here because we all grown up here, very settled for 28 years. Joe is a very kind man, we(all of my siblings) have graduated in a reputable schools in Cebu at his company's expense, he has a unique Filipino attitude in a Chinese man like him.

Is Terrence and Philip are members of our group? I never seen them in person but names, yes. They have a sister named Ongga, also at Engkat.

Hi Roldan,

Terence and Philip are close friends of mine and would attend the eyeballs whenever they could, to show support. Philip is the MB fan while Terence prefers that other German brand. Philip inherited the classic MB cars of his dad (including parts) which he still has to bring to a meet. I will let them know you wrote about them because they don't go online.

thanks
