Keep an eye out for posts from @Teckno He's from Melbourne and is active on here, over on MB World and in your own Whirlpool forums. He's had his 250d for a couple of years and knows the model inside and out. Here's a link to a post he made summarising his first 2 years of ownership:

Two years with my 250d

Hi Guys ,
Thanks for a warm Welcome. Not really much modding ,there's nothing much do for this car ,I just have it last weekend so not even a week old, I already received my Dashcam ( Blackvue 750 )and will be installing it soon, been asking a few questions on other thread , once I got answers I will be starting , I just don't want to start pulling parts if not sure as its still new. I will be looking at chipping it sometime not sooner ,been a regular customer of TD Tune in England most of my car are Diesel (3 diesels ,2 chipped,1 just sold ). For the meantime a bit of cosmetic enhancement is underway.

Cheers

Welcome Caesar,
I’m in Melbourne, we have a 2 yr 250d wagon and a 1 yr 250d Coupe.
Had a couple of minor issues and tyres replaced on the wagon.
Waiting for options for tyres on Coupe, bit more challenging due to staggered rims and limited Tyre manuf being sold in Oz.
Used Ebay to buy some minor cosmetic add ons, both internal and external.
Had both cars duco, Glass and interior treated after we purchased, by independant professional.
I spend my time here, on USA site and Aussie Whirlpool GLC sites.
Lots of good info from both GHD and LHD owners.
All the best and enjoy the ride, great cars.

Hi Techno,
Thanks for welcoming here at the forum , not much to adds on to this car got everything just a touch of cosmetics mostly inside try to retain the prestige of this car . So far so good ,I will be in Melbourne this month in Tarneit for a nice run in to loosen up a bit , I haven't seen the new by pass/es yet. and to see the economy of this car as what MB claimed is true...maybe not at this stage yet still new.

Cheers

Run down the Hume will be great for you and the car. Expect around 1100 - 1200km from the tank @ 110kph with adaptive cruise on, in comfort setting.
Suggest a good brand , bottle of injection cleaner, given 2 months at sea through tropics with minimal fuel in tank.
Makes for a clean start.
Try tyres at 36psi x 4 when cold.
PM me here or on Whirlpool if time allows for a quick catch up .
My wagon nearly identical, to yours, no air suspension on mine, we did fit air to Coupe.
Cheers

Hi Techno,
Another question , how often you fill up Ad Blue? or how many klms before you fill this up. At the servo? I only know BP have it. Please enlighten me before I travel. Just a bit busy to read the manual lately .
Thanks Mate.
Cheers

I looked at my GLC when I first go it and it said 7,000 miles (UK). (11,000 km?)

Better than the A6 I had as it didn't tell you until there was 1500 miles left. The Audi wouldn't start if it got to 0 miles left (so I was told)

It's filled up via a "hole" next to the fuel tank mate..

AdBlue should be filled to 27 lt by dealer on delivery. Uses 1 lt per 1000km . Easily last for 12 month or 25,000km . Car info syst will tell you how much is left. Reminds you around 3 lt balance.
Should not be an issue before each service.

Hi Caesar,
Enjoy Sydney, I’ll be in Melbourne.
Looking at Gun Fire Breakfast, Dawn Service, Two up gambling and mandatory “ Duty Officer Coffee”, black coffee with a substantial amount of Bundy Rum.
I think it will be a long day !
Cheers everyone.

Regarding the ad blue. I keep a 10 litre bottle in my garage just in case as my previous Audi A6 needed filling at 13000 miles and my brother in law Q3 was at 11000.

May have had smaller tanks but I think useage is variable and also depends on how you drive.
