A beautiful car. It would also look good with the mirrors updated. .
My Brabus Bullit
"Here she is at last all ready to come back home to me I have purchased this car brand new from Brabus ever since it was debuted, i was never happy with the performance of this car i have tried getting it tune with Speedriven and i was no successful, so after the guys at GAD did an excellent job in my CLS63 biturbo i asked them if they can do something with the Bullit, and so after they have convinced me i will be happy with the car once they have the chance to do there magic, i shipped my car to Germany. Now she became a real Bullit on a SuperFlow Dyno my car pulled 870hp and 1340NM of torque, no performance numbers on her yet will get some soon "
I’m currently listening to: Dean Martin, Paul Oakenfold & Planet Perfecto, The Cardigans, JJ Cale, Alice In Chains & 6.2litres of AMG Goodness. .
What kind of music do C63 drivers prefer?
"I searched for a thread like this and I thought one would've existed, but apparently it doesn't...or at least not in the past year or so. So, what kind of tunes do C63 owners like to hear when you're cruising or hitting the twisties?"
I had the rear fenders on my C63 rolled with a machine and also slightly stretched (pulled an un-noticeable 5mm) by a body shop. There are people out there who can do amazing things with metal and could stretch them out but not without making the metal flimsy and impacting on the integrity of the panel. You’ll need a body shop to add metal and respray the panels to flare them successfully. Also, rolling the fenders to alleviate rubbing tyres is only part of ...
Quoted from SheryarYO's post
"their website just talks about rolling and pulling though. has anyone with a c63 done that?"
Thatís a nice rim you have on order , I look forward toseeing them fitted. .
Quoted from Steve Richo's post
"Good news, just heard my ADV 08 TS have arrived in country and are waiting for customs clearance!!! Looking forward to getting them on the 63."
This is no AMG, not even close and its not meant to be. This is the new facelift for the VE Commodore originally released in Australia in 2006. It’s a cheap Aussie made V8 Sedan being exported to the US market and there should be more of it. Some fast, cheap, solid cars are made here. With a bit of luck you may even get the new Wagon and Ute variants as well. Go the Aussies. .
Chevy makes a C 63 AMG Knock Off...yes I said it: KNOCKOFF

My BMW is the same. Felt at the rear and plastic at the front. .
C63 Rear Wheel Well (Felt)
"... the rear wheel wells are not supposed to have plastic protection like the front wells, correct? Just the felt lining?"
As this is the C63 section, Iíd rather see these rims in offsets that suit the C63. As it is, these photos are worthless because the loss of dish makes for a completely different and sometimes awful look. .
Your car sounded great. .

"This is an old video but here is a brake standing burnout on my old 2010."
Every one of them a car to desire. What a shame to read about the Brabus. .
"Sorry just being a bit facetious...just moved into new place that allows me to fit 3 of my AMGs into my garage side by side finally. Here are some pics:"
Does Drexler do these installs in house at Gladesville? .
Quoted from DimitriZ's post
"Go to Drexler direct in sydney $66 to ship to melbourne, and get the boys at sharp performance to install it."
When you upgrade to wider rims and tyres, the wider you go the sillier the car looks if you retain the stock height. It starts to give the appearance itís on tip toes. I thought the BS had adjustable coilovers, if so changing the ride height should be reasonably simple and can always be returned to the stock parameters if youíre not happy. You donít need to drop it totally on its guts, just bring it down a little. I wouldnít be able to help myself, Iíd have to adjust them ...
Normal wear and tear, failure from age and misuse is the ownerís problem. Itís the manufacturerís problem is when the part is known to fail and has undergone a running change during the MY2010 build cycle to rectify the possibility of further issues. I see your reasoning and for 5k I would have most likely done the same. That is why they win. If they were not responsible, youíd have gotten nothing. .
Quoted from morganb's post
"I understand your point of view but when does it become the owners problem and not the manufacturer?"
I have to disagree on what others see as a reasonable outcome. If it’s a known fault, 5k as the owner’s contribution is 5k too much. Warranty here on engine work is nothing to get excited about, it’s automatic when carried out by an authorised dealer for the manufacturer. Aussies don’t have the best consumer protection in the world but we do have some. A read of the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) website will enlighten. All ...
Like most dogs in northern Australia, the only time he spends in the sun is when heís going from one shady spot to another. He's also lucky, he gets a sea breeze which helps keep him cool. I looked that BOCA car up and you are right, they are ADVAN F15ís. Youíve got great spotters eyes for detail, I only took a basic look and thought no further than OEM. They look particularly good side on. .
Quoted from olszowa12's post
"BTW how does Your dog stand the Australian heat? And the wheels on the BOCA car look like ADVAN F15 to me."
The yellow car in the background is an old HSV, therefore the C63 is an Aussie car with OEM rims. .
Diesel fuel in Australia isnít cheap compared to other fuels. Plus you pay an over the top premium here for vehicles fitted with Diesel engines. They say here it takes an average of about 10 years to get back your additional purchase price over a petrol model. Most people donít keep their cars long enough to think itís worth going Diesel. Heís talking about a Diesel model, mine is also a Diesel and the down side is it rattles and is noisy when the stop start ...

Iíve posted this in the W204 & C63 section. If your purchase decision involves the depreciation values, check out ĎCarguidesí or a similar site and compare the second-hand prices of the same year models for AMG and MB against their new prices. The first owner of the AMG took the big depreciation hit, so common sense says when its used price levels out it should retain better value than the stock MB. Final choice will depends on what you look for in a car. An enthusiast ...
