    Hi Everyone.

    New to the MB scene, just acquired a 09 clk320 cdi sport and already im thinking 'how can i make this car better'

    No doubt its already a lovely engine but im considering the brabus d6 chip.

    I've read numerous times that the d6 III brabus units are interchangable with all cars with the 320 cdi engine, W209 w211 w219 etc etc, lucky as there are several evailable on ebay at any one time, but never any off a clk 320.



    I asked Brabus direct if the d6III chip will work off a w219 cls (part no. part no 219-736-00-DC) and they replied "It wont work with that.
    For your car you need the D6 Kit with the following part number 209-736-00"

    So now im worried that if i buy a unit with the wrong part number, it will more than likely damage my car.

    Can anyone enlighten me as to the differences between part numbers

    cheers
    Phil

    That one
    They are all the same, just have different stickers on.

    I have an email from Brabus confirming this.

    Suspicions confirmed!

    Why not a remap?
    Well, Brabus = peace of mind, knowing that it is the best in terms of reliability, also i can remove it and get my money back when its time to sell, something you cant do with remap.

    Thanks chaps
    Phil.

    Brabus seem to tell different people different things.


    When my 211-736-00 chip failed it was replaced with a 219-736-00 chip and Brabus confirmed it was entirely suitable.

    The chip/box is the same but the wiring loom and mounting bracket is different, depends where the box is to be located....
