Bumper wrap and roof wrap was a total of 450.

Roof wrap alone would have been 190.

Looks amazing! Few quick questions: Were your original rims 17"? If so, how has the ride changed from switching to the 18". Also, are those the replica ones on ebay? I was looking into buying them, but I didn't know how they would look on the car or stack up to the OE...

Lastly, did you tint your tail light indicator at all?

Yup... original rims were 17". Not much difference in ride quality. Need to get H&R lower springs as i am noticing body roll a bit more as i am used to lowered cars.

The 18" are not replicas. There are original AMG VIs.

And the tail light indicators are original as well. They come darkened.

Very clean, I too added the C63 grille and love the look of it. Kind of a b%$& to install but quality and fit are good once its in

Looking good so far!

I am in the UK also and ordered the grill from the same ebay vendor you did after seeing yours and although it arrived in 5 days it was damaged.

There is a 2cm damage on the first fin where i think the a heat iron was used to fix the chrome trim has burnt through the plastic.

They have been a bit slow to respond on email and have now offered me a 30 refund or a new grill, am now waiting to hear from them on how they want me to return the damaged grill to them as I wont be paying any more postage.

Sadly not very impressed.

Sorry to hear of your ordeal... lucky mine was ok & didnt have any damage.

I guess there is always a risk involved when ordering from international source.
