    Dear ?....

    Results of the further development from amongst others, the „F1 AMG Medical Cars”, have led to the development of an enhanced cooling system for the C 63 AMG.

    In order to allow an even better cooling, high-performance coolers are applied in combination with an optimized air path which allows a reduction of the engine oil temperature while driving. Therefore, these measures can also serve the purpose of an optimized cooling of the engine while operating in the outer limit.

    If you are interested and you want have further details (assembly, ordering, availability and price), please contact directly an AMG Performance Center in your area. Then, the local colleagues will contact our AMG After Sales Team in Affalterbach.

    Best regards from Affalterbach

    You're probably right though it will be a rip off.

    From another mb forum


    Talked to my AMG specialist, and they got the bulletin, however, I'm told the "kit" will be similar to the BS track package...I.E Oil, Trans coolers....price was given in Euros, so he's calling me back with the price and availability (you need to provide your VIN, as the packages are VIN specific). This is not a warranty item, rather an "upgrade track package"...hold on to your wallets! Ball park my guy gave me is $8000.00 (CAD)

    This is just the old R171 high performance cooling system which hides in the front right. First seen on the R171 Black Series.

    Does anybody know the price for this in the UK? Overheating on track days is quite common - some people made a lot of noise about this on the private lounge.

    I've just chased up my local dealer by phone after I emailed them over a week ago.

    Not heard about it. no issues with cooling. oh but might be the top bolts. But forums don't have legitimate info. Hey. what do I know.

    Told them from where I had read it - and they've gone away to do some more digging.

    So, nearly a year later and with evidence that people in the U.S. are installing these I now felt safe to go back to my dealer and enquire again.

    Remembering that last time I got laughed out of their shop and promised that they would get back to me - I never heard from them again (after chasing 3 times).

    I email them the PDF showing the communication from AMG, showing the part numbers and showing the email address they can use to get help. 10 days later and no response at all. I give them a call today - and once again - never heard of it and treat me like I'm full of sh*t. They took my details and went off to 'find' my email (I've worked in customer service for 13 years and never seen this level of incompetence).

    10 minutes later I get a call back from them saying 'well we think its only available for the American market'. bahhhhhhhhhh

    This is a joke; on so many levels ! I want to go back to Audi (and they were bad).

    emailed AMG direct. Really hope to get some sense out of somebody.

    I was reading a recent thread on a U.S. forum of a tuning company that had came up with some kind of a way to keep oil temp down by using royal purple oil and some kind of air deflector thingy that forces air through the oil coolers. Apparently stops gearbox from going into limp mode.

    Apologies for resurrecting an old thread here, but this was the only thread I found on this topic in this forum and was curious if anybody here had found out anymore information on the Cooling Package?

    It looks like I've been facing similar issues to andy-mc, albeit the dealership I've been speaking to have at least made an effort to be helpful. They seem to have retrieved prices for all the components listed, with the exception of one or two which they are still researching. The initial impression I get is that these components will cost ~£5k excluding fitting.
