    Worth the £1650, or better to choose a more cost effective alternative, offering similar performance / economy gains ?

    Buy off eBay for maybe £300, or find a reputable company to remap. They are very nice with the D6/III installed.

    Performance/economy is an oxymoron.

    A Brabus chip will make you want to point and squirt (oo-er) more, with the obvious consequences.

    I ran a D6 for 3 years and didn't see better economy, for the reason above.

    thanks for the replies. in the meantime does the Sport button just alter the suspension settings or does it also adjust the timings of the up and downshifts?

    lots of used brabus d6 kits turning up on ebay.

    Can anyone confirm whether a cls 320/350 d6 chip work on a c320? different part numbers, but is it essentially the same engine/chip configuration?
