Sorry to learn that a complete stranger adding an exhaust has the ability to affect you on a personal level like that.
Way to degenerate the conversation.. any answer to the question posed?

I guess I should ask OP.

Yes there are part numbers for individual sections. Mid pipe, taile pipe, mufflers and such. And you are right, they aren't cheap. The only reason this one was cheap because it was coming from a donor in a junky. How many C43s equipped with PE can you find in the junkyards? We probably don't even have one.

But the PE has far better built quality than any of the aftermarket options by a long mile.

Thanks! I can see this being very popular in a couple of years for sure. But to your point, this isn't necessarily accessible at a reasonable cost in the current atmosphere. And I can absolutely see the appeal of doing such in a country like Australia that has much more strict motoring laws than the majority of states in the US (keeping a car OEM, or with OEM parts can save you many headaches).

Hi Alexasa,

I did not check with mercedes about buying the parts from them. here is a pic of one of the mufflers that has a part number on it.

If you cant get the numbers im happy to drive my car on ramps and get all the part numbers, just shoot me a message. The bracket that was different was not stamped from what i saw.

I love that it’s stamped with AMG. I can only imagine how many C63 lurkers are upset about that.

Nice post. I do have a question about the hoodup of the module that you got from the donor car. How did you connect it to get power and did you install the button also?

I have a C450 and purchased the Armytrix exhaust with valve control but I leave the value open all the time. I can see from your pictures that the Armytrix and the PE look a like with the large center pipe. I think the only big difference is the weight as the Armytrix center pipe is titanium which makes it very lite in weight. On the other hand, this is a great write-up as I also had a guy who purchased my C450 Exhaust for his C400 and noticed a difference in sound. No cracks or pops but a deep rubble and louder startups including louder revvs even during high speeds. He was very pleased that the C450 Exhaust made a difference on his C400. If you had purchased the C43 PE it would have cost you $1200USD so getting is for cheap is a good step.

Also we need write-ups like this as a Auto Enthusiast forum so there should be no haters here. Many would be scared to take the step this guy did for fear they will loose money. Further to that, he shared his experience for others who were thinking the same thing. "Maybe I should have purchased the PE when I bought my C43". I think everyone should purchase the PE when they purchase the C43 AMG. For me, I wanted more sound from my C450 as I loss some sound with the Lorinser Tune however Lorinser recommended that I change my exhaust to a better breathing exhaust for maximum hp.

Great work and thanks for sharing.

Thanks for your post.

I didnt end up hooking up the power button or the valve controller in the boot. For the power button, you need to replace the center console and have it programmed which MB would not do. The wiring for the valve controller in the boot is "stitched" into the main loom also, i took one look and thought im just going to bolt it up and cross my fingers it sounds the same. The valves are open all the time which makes startup louder. The sound characteristics of my car is the same as my friends with factory PE, my car is louder at lower RPM and make more pops etc at lower RPM. For 1200AUD I got lucky.

Love this thread. Wish I could find a donor car with the Performance Exhaust. I haven't seen any wrecked w205s anywhere near me at any auto wreckers let alone one with PE.

car shopping
I'm currently shopping for a C43 and I'm wondering if there is a certain VIN code that identifies the performance exhaust.

There is no specific number or letter in the VIN that would give that info just by its self. You can use a VIN decoder and all the info about options etc. will be shown.
