new tires, a noob to mercedes looking for tips.thanks
"hello,i've always been a bmw guy but recently upgraded and switched to mercedes.i have a 2013 c63 amg coupe which i've bought recently.the car came with continental zr1 tires but it seems it doesn't have as good as a traction.They also seem to be wearing out very fast with low thread count.maybe i need to lower my psi? the car came stock with 46 psi and thats the maximum load.my question is,should i lower the psi to 32 or should i switch to new tires? currently running on 235 in the front and 255 in the rear. will i be able to fit 275 in the rear and 245 in the front without scratching and have enough clearance?My main concern is wider tires?what thread count and which one would be good.I live in california and the weather is hot and cold. i guess i want more handling for the car.I ..."
9 months ago in C63 AMG (W204)
I saw the car at ACG a couple months ago. it had 2 sets of wheels since it went to sema. I think the owner picked it up and drives it now. James at ACG described it to me as a "highway car", not so great low end but brutally fast once you get going.
jspAMG's widebody C63 is still alive
"I thought it was supposed to be left in a shed in the middle of nowhere "
Reventon's were not made in white. all of them are matte gray. I think you are mistaking it for a modified murcielago.

That might be but your motor alone is $40k to replace plus labor and I don't know what a transmission is worth. I however think that engine braking is worth it just for the sound it makes while doing so.
Automotive Connoisseur Group in San Diego does dyno tunes.
Where is So Cal can I get a ECU Tune?
"I am looking to get a ECU Tune local somewhere is So Cal. I live in Simi Valley on the border of Ventura and LA county. I have located one shop for the RENNtech tune called HG Motorsports. I have called OE tuning but have not had good luck with a response. There must be other tuner shops out here in Kalifornia. I really would like to dyno tune my car for the best results. Thanks, Robert"

How to identity Performance Package on 2009 C63?
"Hi all- I'm planning on picking up a low mileage 2009 C63 and need some advice... I only want to buy a fully loaded car this time around. I got serious buyers remorse on the E55 I bought a couple cars back which had no options whatsoever. Not even Nav! The screen in the dash basically didn't do anything. Very lame. The performance package is an absolute must have, as I can't imagine having this car without an LSD. Parktronic is also important, I've gotten used to it in my M5 and now don't want to live without it. Many of the listings on cars.com or autotrader have few to no details about what options the cars are equipped with. Usually these are cars listed at off-brand dealers like mazda/chevy/carmax. I'm sure the salesmen have no idea what packages these cars might come with, so they ..."
What if you replaced the AMG badge on the rear with a RBA badge for "Red Brown Arrow"
Quoted from Dads C63's post
"I guess since AMG has nicknamed the car the "Red Brown Arrow" I should stick with that somehow. "
you should win against a 997 carrera S. just use launch control
"Hey guys hows it going? So i recently bought my 2012 c63 sedan mars red. A friend of mine has a 2008 porsche carrera s. He seems to be very proud of his car and put a 500 euro bet on the line. Both of our cars are stock. The bet is just a drag race. So heres my question? is there a way to launch my car without peeling out all over the place and watch him take off? Thank you for all the feedback"
as per my original post and the second one in response to morganb asking how to access the engineering menu. there are no other steps.
push and hold the end call, #, and 1 keys for 10 seconds. This is what I am wondering.
The facelift ones have it enabled. pre facelift doesnt have it enabled but apparently you can enable it in the engineering menu.
Quoted from Patrick B's post
"Are you talking about for cars without the Premium Package installed? Because Bluetooth audio streaming is automatically included on cars with the Navi system (part of the Premium Package). I use the Bluetooth Audio all the time in my car. Patrick"
I couldnt find anything under BT audio. would i need a star diagnostics tool?
Bluetooth audio streaming.
"Apparently you can stream audio via bluetooth through the command unit. you have to enable it through the engineering menu which is accessed through pushing and holding #, 1, and the hangup button for 10 seconds. what would the option be called though?"

put it on good high performance winter tires and put 4-6 bags of salt or road salt in the trunk and you will be better off than on summer tires or just winters. But do not use the car with summer tires on it in the winter. the best thing would be to not use the car in the winter. that much power to the rear wheels will not mix well with snow.
Michelin PSS - opinion
"So I get that these are the greatest tires ever in many peoples minds...sold. The one thing that I'm concerned with - and I know the probability is low but the results could be catastrophic - if I did end up getting caught in a snow storm - will I be totally stuck? It does NOT snow much where I am at all, but would like to avoid taking the risk if its as dangerous as my previous experience...Im not the type to pull over and call a cab, Im the type to say "I'll make it work..." for better or worse it is what it is. Thinking back to when I had T1-R's on my last C63, one time it started snowing where I was, and I literally had to slide around going 5mph in order to even move forward. It was ridiculous, not even in reality. Has anyone gotten stuck in a situation where some snow/ice hits the ..."
SM-AMG we might see you. we are planning on leaving around 530.
so we have 3 C63's and a 911 Turbo Cab coming.
Meet at the shell station on technology drive at 6:30am?
Fellow C63ers, who wants to hit-up Cars & Coffee this week?
There is a full service station in Rancho Santa Fe, CA, that has 91, 95, and 100 octane gas on the pump. . although pricing does reflect them being the only provider. 95 is like 6$ a gallon and 100 octane is 8$ a gallon.
where do you guys tank up your C63?
"This might have been covered before but did not find anything relevant. I was wondering if it is worthwhile to fill gas at costco due to cheaper prices and proximity to my house? I have heard stories that costo gas i.e warehouse gas is not as good in quality and hence i fill up only at shell or chevron in california."
well depending where you are, if your going 100+ your license is gone anyway. If you get a laser hit your toast. forget about the lidar port. place it for the radar.
Quoted from andrey_clk55's post
"Well it might still make some sense... what if I am going 100 and accelerating? If I see a laser hit, I will sure slow down. But if I don't, then I will keep going faster and the consequences likely will be much worse. "
