B9 Allroad, C43 Wagon Ordered!
Upgrade Order

My C43 wagon should be here in May, but after doing a bunch of reading I'm looking to do a bunch of mods. Just wanted to get everyone's opinion on what they would do first and/or last. In no particular order:

- H&R Springs
- Spacers for stock 19" black multi-spoke(front 5mm and rear 12mm)
- JB4
- Intake(MST or BMS)
- Panamericana swap?

Am I missing any must have mods?

19 C43 Coupe, XC 60
So, I am doing similar upgrades and have been working as follows:
*Diamond Floor Mats to protect the carpets
*Door Pins becuase the plastic ones are horrible
*Dragy in prep for that 1500km end of break in
*12mm spacers all around gives it a perfect amount of poke
*Flappy paddle extensions
*JB4 is here, but I am going to see how well the engine perfroms for about 500km after the break in period
*I have ordered a pedal tuner to increase throttle response
*I am holding out on an intake to see how the two actually perform amongst owners
*I am going collecting black badges and will do a black out on the grille vs. Panamericana swap
*Can't lower mine as parking is already a nightmare with my house driveway at a 13+ degree slope.

Pilot PS4 tires should be first. Actually any non-runflat tires for that matter.

Door pins is a great idea. I saw those in another thread and thought they looked great.

Would a set of PS4's last 3 summers/30,000KM?

I'd hold off on the pedal tuner. S+ throttle tip in is very aggressive.

Coincidentally, I shot by this today.

Imho I don't think it matches the rest of the car

Here is what i have done with my 19 Coupe

- H&R Springs
- 12MM F/20mm Rear springs
- Mode carbon spoiler
- RWCarbon mirrors
- Tint
- Blacked out chrome
- Blacked out front
- Just installed AMG Side sills (removed the cheap carbon ones I had)
- JB4 - Is awesome on my 19 so far
- Intake also waiting to see results
- Backed out the rear section of my roof to make the entire top black
- X-Pel front and rockers, and full ceramic coat
Here is the results (minus the new OEM AMG side sill upgrade as I do not have any pictures with them on)

Keep it coming boys. Love the pics and getting lots of ideas/parts ordered.

Gordotre, do you have any pics of how flush your wheels are? I thought 12/20 and lowered would be too aggressive/rub for stock wheels.

Here are a couple of how flush they are. I have zero rubbing and they fit perfect!!

My spacers and lugs were purchased from Supreme Power spacers 20mm rear , 12mm front (I know 12mm are typically an issue but this is what Supreme Power have done). Quote from them “We have developed our spacer specifically to address the issue found with other spacers with the longer snout to remain hub centric.”
I had them install professionally and no issues.
