    C63 downpour removal

    Most custom exhausts are cat back....so nothing wrong there. If you delete any cats whilst replacing your exhaust technically its illegal and an MOT fail......but then so are many other things that no one worries about. Technically it can void your insurance too.....but again I've never heard...

    C63 downpour removal

    Slightly more power....especially if you have mapped on a rolling road to match.....and more of that lovely V8 rumble. Keep the resonators and you should not get too much drone in the cabin. I did this very job a friends car.....and then he went further and fitted LTHs......with no cats at all...

    C63 downpour removal

    Yes....Long Tube Headers.... Or you could go Short tube....not quite as many horses....but easier to fit and no ground clearance lost....which can be an issue with certain Long headers.

    C63 downpour removal

    Theoretically removal of any factory fitted emissions equipment is a fail....whether it passed the emissions test or not (so thats you who remove EGRs, secondary cats etc).....be we all know that in the real world most testers don't know what each and every car should have and if it passes the...

    An EQT coming one day?

    Looks like it could be fresh out of any car factory in China!! Why the need to make EVs look freaky!?....I dont like the E Mini or the e Golf.....but at least they look like normal cars!! Most of the EV Mercs don't look great to me. I see they need to be good aero wise to get that max...

    Resonator delete - underwhelmed.....

    The turbos and the GPF do most of the silencing on modern cars. My ALFA exhaust was replaced by me for a straight through system end to end...no silencers...just a small factory resonator.......it sounds no louder than ir was when silenced! I was disappointed! The factory silencers were very...

    Have You Seen Any Interesting Cars On The Road Lately?

    WHAT?.......it's a Ferrari......therefore the only acceptable colour is red! Same for ALFAs...all of mine have been red. If its Italian and half stylish, red it is. Old Brit classic cars are green, fast German cars are silver, Italian ones are red! .......That one does look good in yellow though!

    What Have You Done To Your Merc Today?

    Not really....very slightly smaller footprint than a 212 E Class....just taller.

    This looks like fun!.....anyone on here?

    Cheapest 213 E63 I've seen is just under 50k (at Peter Cooper's in Southampton as it happens)....and then you have the cost of the Brabus tuning on top......so the 212 Brabus above will be rather cheaper.......

    This looks like fun!.....anyone on here?

    850 horse Brabus converted E63 5.5......not something you see everyday. Luv it (apart from the horrid B on the grille they insist on using....would be replaced with a Merc star if it was mine!!.....but well outside my price bracket!! Thought id post it due to rarity and if anyone was looking for...

    AliExpress ABC Shock Absorbers

    I think that was right years ago.....but these days many of those so called "Quality items" are made in exactly the same factories in China as the so called "cheap pattern part".....often its exactly the same part in a different box! Even Mercedes are not adverse to sourcing cheap Chinese parts...

    Factory fitted tyres

    Back in the days of nearly everything being RWD (Cortinas, Capris etc) we all used to put heavy stuff in the boot in the winter when conditions were not great. I remember my dad putting backs of cement in the boot of the Mk2 Escort. Fine until you DID loose traction.then you had loads more...
