All done and finished, MB Approved bodyshop did quite a good job, and what a difference the engine seems to be able to breathe a lot better with this set-up plus the sound has quietened down a bit but the Kleemann header and sport cat lets you know that its not stock.

I am really pleased with the result in changing the position of the tyre well plus adding the whole C55 exhaust system complete with mid section AMG muffler it certainly looks and sounds a lot better than the customised system i had before. Pics below.

Interesting, but not surprising, that it performs better than the 'performance' exhaust you had fabricated.
I wonder how many performance systems don't work, or are even detrimental to performance.

Looks great. Where did you get the diffuser from?

Nice result, thanks for posting the pics.

very nice. have to say that having a straight thru into original back boxes seems to be the way to go. :p

Certainly looks the business.
If the engine feels easier, would that indicate its more efficient?
And follow that your MPG would increase?

Cheers, I'm potentially interested, I assume they do a version for the C32 exhaust / bumper too?
