Mercedes '047 CIS injectors - Opinions?

I see a number of folk have replaced their standard 0437502012 (928 110 225 00) CIS injectors with the Mercedes 0437502047 injectors.

What effect, if any, has this had on the running of the vehicle?

Any change in performance/fuel economy?

Is it a complete no brainer to use these '047 injectors or is it worth trying to restore the original '012 ones?

I notice that the '047 injector is much shorter than the original, this must have some effect on the inlet tract?

Here is a list of topics talking about that. Maybe it will answer or not. Good reading though.

Thanks for that, already waded thro' those!

Has anyone been running the '047's for some time and got anything to report back?

I guess most have gone with these as their car was already poorly, so a change to new '047's is going to make a dramatic difference anyway.

Just interested to know whether there are any down sides to using these merc injectors?

I've had the MB injectors for about 6 months, pleased with the results.

Never came across anything positive as far as having the steel injectors cleaned, plus the cost associated with that was almost in line with the price of the new MB injectors iirc.

The old injectors where bad, so obvious improvement with the MB's in my case.... can't make apples to apples comparison as far as performance and economy.
