If anyone needs help here, the pillars of the truck became more streamlined and aerodynamic on the MP1

Only a small series of the Actros 1 had the new front grill with MP2 still and the wind deflectors next to the grill.. A other difference are the indicator outside of the normal headlight.. These ´MP1´ with the new grill had the everytime the same headlights like the MegaSpace variant. Other Actros 1 & MP1 with the old grill had with the S-, M- and L-Cab the indicator intigrated into the headlights, MegaSpace had the indicator every time over the headlights.. The different spoilers left and right of the windshild was an option. Some differences of a old and younger Actros 1 was the engines.. The Actros 1 was released with Euro 2 engines, some years later the Euro 3 engines was aviable, and he gets the new Engine with 456hp, so if you see a 1846/2546 or other MP1 times with old grill and wind deflector, of course, this one is a later member of the MP1 family from 2002 or 2003. The MP2 of 2003 use the same 456hp engine from the MP1 series, all other MP1 engines gets for the MP2 series a little reworking with more power ( round about +10 hp). In the interior you can see some differences on a MP1 and a old Actros 1: Interior color, tachograph, seat covers etc..

only the mp2 2sd phase(after 2005) got these "+10" power with a new MR ecu (program implantation to the next euro4 norm, scr release ect ect...) Some first mp2 model got the same power like mp1 euro2 (and they got a number of problem too with this shitty electronic, like the actros 1 96-99 :lol: , it was a money pit for me to have those truck, everything gone wrong, fixing after fixing :( )

The MP2 series started in 2003 with more power for every engine.. The MP1 V6 engines are xx 31, xx 35, xx 40, xx 43, xx 46, V8 engines are xx 48, xx 53, xx 57 and in the last period for the SLT xx 60. The MP2 engines was from beginning the stronger engines, for example V6: xx 32, xx 36, xx 41, xx 44, xx 46, xx 48 - and the V8 xx 50 Euro 3, xx 51 Euro 4/5, xx 54 Euro 3, xx 55 Euro 4/5, xx 58 Euro 3 and xx 60 Euro 4/5. Of course, for the MP2 was the Black Edition with 612hp the strongest engine, for the MP3 comes after 2010 the 653hp V8 Engine for the SLT in Combination with the VIAB System. For export far away from europe or for privaty groud use you got the Actros 1 euro 2 engines in the Actros MP2 and MP3 series, for example a 2040 MP3 euro 2 truck for middle east or africa. Or a 3848 V8 MP3 euro 2. Only the xx 46 euro 3 engine of the MP1 was used in the MP2, because if was a new engine. And this engine close the difference between the xx 44 V6 and xx 50 V8 engine, till the xx 48 V6 engine for MP2 was aviable. In MP1 the xx 480 hp engine was a V8 engine, in the MP2 series it was a V6 engine.. In the end of 2004 the Actros was the first truck with Euro 4 / Euro 5 engines, some times later all V8 engines gets more power than the Euro 3 variants..
