like the C32's Obsidian Obsession this is gonna be the thread for my 204 and it's progress. Granted it won't be as crazy as the C32, but it'll still be fun.

stuff already done:
1. C63 AMG 18" wheels with PZero S.
2. clear side marker
3. x-pipe
4. C63 style front grille

some stuff in progress
1. C63 diffuser with ??? (deciding if I want to do a big oval like the RS4 or quad like everyone else. my separate myself from the crowd instinct is saying RS4 style big oval tips.
2. Brabus Bullit style prototype custom front grille (thanks K1 ) we'll see if this can be done before the NOV big meet. If it's done before then I'll bring the 204 instead of the 203.
3. Carlsson front lip...rep or authentic..

W203 (sold), W204 (sold), W124
I was thinking of doing the same thing as you (installing bigger oval tips like the RS4). What diffuser would you be using to cater to the tips?

I try to installed one big single oval tip and I didnít like the result, I had to go with the quad tips, you may like the 2009 SL65 black series single tip better

X3 and 2012 C coming soon
Do you guys think anyone would be interested in an exhaust that would use quad tips that would fit in the non-C63 diffuser? I have an exhaust manufacturer interested in developing a system with me, because I think more people would do the mod if the price of an exhaust system wasn't so ridiuculously high. To keep cost in check, I think a system that does not go into the center box, but clamps or welds onto the tubing near the axle would suffice. It would require cutting the tubing at that point though. Anyway, I actually like a bigger single tip and I am not really a fan of the C63 diffuser, because I don't have a C63. He said he may be able to offer all three choices of tips though. They would probably be bolt-on in that case. In person, Quad tips with the regular sport diffuser looks really good. Kind of like the Brabus exhaust.

Sorry about going off-topic, but this may be a good option.

did the first test fitting of the brabus style grille on friday. looks awesome . they're making minor changes before another test fit and after that we should see it being molded and produced in dry carbon.

K1 FTW!!

it didn't. I used my own off the 17" stocks.


btw, cannot find the big enough tips or good looking enough tips to go with a dual setup, so I'm going to go ahead and order the stock tips and make quads like VaderSS.
