Bumper replacement is a DIY job. Painting is another story...have that done professionally.
Front Bumper Parking Curb Damage suggestions?
"Hello: I am sure other owners have encountered this. Do you have to replace the whole front bumper on a CL55 AMG if its damaged underneath by a parking curb? I seemed to have parked on a parking curb that had one of the metal iron bars sticking out of it a good way unknownst to me and it acted like a knife against paper and cut a nice gash underneath the front bumper. I assume its better to have this repaired then making an insurance claim and I assume that a body shop would do this? Or is the bumper replacement easy enough for a independent Mercedes mechanic shop to handle? I have had my grill replaced at the shop I use etc along with complete ABS system replacement, I imagine the bumper cannot be harder then the ABS system. Any advice or known costs? Thank you! -Ron"

I'd do this swap mod too, but finding folding mirrors at a decent price is a challenge. Thx for sharing your experience on this.
Just installed my "new style" side mirror PICīS AND WRITEUP INSIDE!!!
"Hi Guys. since iīm new to this forum, i first of all want to say hello to all of you guys. My name is Daniel, i am 23 years old and from Stuttgart (home of Mercedes Benz ;-) ) Iīm a proud owner of an obsidian black C63 for a while now and was never be happy with the look of my "old school" mirrors. After a few phonecalls with MB, i ended up to be contend with my mirrors, since i didnīt want to pay over 2.000 bucks for simply the look of the "new style" mirrors. I let it rest for a few weeks but started again to make some phonecalls, but this time with a couple of Friends which are working in the auto industry. A few days later i took delivery of my new mirrors. The mirrors arenīt new and got slight signs of usage. But infact that my car isnīt new either, i really donīt mind. The best ..."

Not sure, but what about removing the wheel...then removing the fender liner to get to the fogs?
2010 CL 63 fog lamp replacement
"Fog lamp lenses are cracked. Can anyone tell me what all is involved in replacing light assy."
Looks the like the best way to lower...using links.
Quoted from fallen's post
"Thank you! I am on stock suspension lowered with links from Ghost Motorsports..."

Any ceramic based brake pad will provide low dust.

"What do you guys use and recommend for a good low dust brake pad. I'm working on a 2008 cl63."
Would like to see your before and after pics thanks in advance. Pete
Quoted from Television's post
"Thank you very much, I have done it now, the chrome ring does not come off on the 63/65, there are 3 tiny screws holding on the grill and it came off easily. I am try to add running lamps"
interesting discussion. In this day and age, ppl are piston hungry….they believe more piston = better the stopping power…at least that's what we are lead to believe, right? LOL!! I've taken apart calipers and rebuilt them….and the multiple piston calipers obviously have more moving parts. They also have much much smaller pistons. The double single-piston design now employed on the CL63 are probably much bigger pistons compared to the CL55 6-pot caliper ...
W216 cl63 AMG break calipers down-grade vs W215 55?!?!?
"I just inspected the brakes on my cl63 and to my surprise and shock the front calipers are nothing more then two separate one piston calipers bolted to one braket and fited with AMG covers that make it appear to be a 6 or 8iston caliper. WTF?... The rear is a much smaller one piston caliper, again with a AMG cover on the outside to make it appear like its a 2 or maybe a 4 piston caliper. What is this all about? Why did they not install the same 6 piston fronts and 4 piston rear calipers on these cars like the old cl55 cars had? I'm very confused about this right now."
MAF…Mass Airflow sensors…its probably dirty or has gunk on there. For K&N filters, it requires oil to be sprayed onto the filter…some ppl spray too much oil which leads to problems like this. good luck.
check engine lights
"my check engine light came on after i installed some K&N air filter the code said fuel trim bank 1..........does anyone know or had any problem like this ? cl63 amg"
Was it worth it to upgrade?
Quoted from Sivraj222's post
"I have a 2008 cl63 AMG ....I have updated my nav and video it's play vids and all the 2013 stuff... Cost me $1200"
Lets see some pics plz...
Quoted from anton28's post
"I used driving lights from a g63. Looks killer and factory! You can get silver backed or black. I used black as it blends in much better in to the fog light area and blends in well with the black mesh."
good question...waiting for you to try it first...lol.
Front fog light to LED conversion question
"Hi, Have a question about a 2008 CL63. Looking to switch to the newer style LED fog lights. Does anyone know the part numbers, and if the newer style LED's from the CL can easily be ordered to retrofit without having a gap in the fog light area? Thanks,"
old thread but worth the bump up...love the LED conversion fogs.
My Cl63 Before and After...
"i just got my cl out of the workshop yesterday and I think I owe every member the time to share with them my CL 63 project as my main inspiration came from this forum…let the pics speak for itself… more daytime pics is coming once the polish is Done. let me know what you guys think."
Did you get a 4 wheel alignment after dropping with the links? I learned the hard way that even dropping it a bit added a bit more negative camber, my toe also changed…which ate up my inner tires…esp in the rear. Suggest you get an alignment first.
Rear tires wear out on the inside bad
"Did anyone fix this problem that we have on our cars? Going thru tires like crazy Had the car lowered I little with links so now it's even worse. My rear tires on the inside just disappear I heard of the adjustable arms for our cars and saw one for $440. Does anyone know if there is a cheaper set? And did it solve the issue. Thanks!"
Looks beautiful...height looks perfect...are you on stock suspension or aftermarket?
Quoted from fallen's post
"Hello, the new CL63 owner here. Just wanted to introduce myself :-) Here are some pictures of my new ride - please let me know if you think it's riding a bit low ;-) Thank you!!!"
Hey gang, I need you help....as the title says, im looking at a 2010 CLS550 w/ 28K miles tomorrow...don't know what's in there...but what should I expect as standard equipment....and what are the options/packages?
