    change of colour of alloy wheels on a 63

    hoping im doing the right thing colour wise. Looking on MB amg brochure the only option is black and it seems the bit of rim that touches the tyre is left silver presumably to reduce the visibility of kerbing ? Decisions decisions !

    change of colour of alloy wheels on a 63

    I have a new white c63 and am thinking of a change of wheel colour as I understand this is easy to do. What are the pitfalls of this and is powder coating the way to go here? I guess if you go for a dark colour any parking dings will stand out a mile ? Bearing in mind its a white car what...

    DMS remap in a 63

    spoke to Phil Deacon of Rebellion in chichester who uses Eurocharged remaps on c63, says :- He can remap my 63 for £599 and get a futher 50 - 70hp out of the standard engine (457hp). I assume Eurocharged remaps are pretty good, would I feel an extra 50hp ? What other benefits if any come with...

    DMS remap in a 63

    I have a standard Jan 13 C63. Been speaking to DMS who say they will remap it from 450 to 530hp with extra torque and more sensitive accelerator. They say it will knock 0.5 sec off 0-60 time and give a top end of 200mph, both these claims I am dubious about I ask, has anyone done this and...

    C63 Coupe Tyre option

    ok we agree the height is changed then. Being thick here............ how does the tyre pressure device work, I thought it detected minute changes in rolling diameter ? I understand this is a very sensitive device. Also would it affect things like traction control etc ?

    C63 Coupe Tyre option

    that cant be right as the 30 is the aspect ratio, ie tyre wall heights are 30% the width of the tyre ? Increasing width and keeping same aspect ratio will lead to a slightly taller tyre

    C63 Coupe Tyre option

    currently have 255/30/19 on the back of my 63 Tyres are knackered, it seems from this thread that 265/30/19 are an option but surely this will affect ride height fractionally and monitoring systems ?

    c63 spur of the moment purchase

    I bought a Jan 13 C63 from a dealer the other day as an almost spur of the moment purchase. I would like to say what a truly lovely all round car it is. It is difficult to imagine that Id ever want anymore from a car, it is refined when you want it to be and then in S+ mode, it has enough grunt...

    M3 or c63

    I have owned several Mercs in the past and most recently a '62 plate E coupe. I fancy a change and have now sold the car. I am thinking on an M3 coupe, say on a 12 plate with low miles. These can now be picked up for less than £40k due to new model coming soon. A hell of a lot of car for the...

    vat qualifying cars

    so we as private bodies should avoid vat qual vehicles in that case? Still not sure that its as clear cut as this, as I bet some dealers mark a vehicle up whereas others might not of cottoned on to the fact that they are worth more to some people, such as those with disabilites etc

    vat qualifying cars

    Most of us know how the vat system works on new/used cars, this is what the link explains. However this is not what I asked if you reread carefully. I asked "If a private individual finds a vat qual car (ie one that is +vat), would the gross price he pays be more than an equivalent non vat...
