My build/progress, lots of pics!!

First off I want to thank Tal at ACGAutomotive for answering all my questions and making the ordering process of my HRE FF01 super easy, simply awesome. Also a big thank you to Nicholas at Mode Carbon for helping with everything, even quick shipping of another diffuser when FedEx damaged the first one sadly. Truly great knowledge and customer service from both.

I have had the wheels for a month or two now but just recently got the carbon pieces on. I decided to wait to take pictures until everything was on and ready, hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

Nice. I thought the hre flow forged wheels didn't have great offset options for the c63 but those look nice and flush . What size tire is on the rear ? 265?

the rears are good it's the fronts that could be more aggressive.

I like it a lot,


I'm not a huge fan of black on black, i'm sure in the flesh it looks stellar.

Thank you Kriston. I agree, black on black does get a bit old, good thing mine is not pure black though, magnetite .

Nice looking car you got there? any plan to black out the window trim? you have inspired me to do a build thread as well.

wondering what the approx cost for installing the wavetrac is?

Thank you . I have seen the same color C63 with all black trim before and I personally prefer the look of the chrome trim over the black, not saying it doesn't look good though. It is surprising how much different the car looks with a little trim change.
I look forward to checking out the build thread . Installation of the Wavetrac really depends on where you get installed and how much for labor but as a rough estimate (by dealer), about $125 per hour...6-8 hrs.

Is the flush fit in the rear attributable to wheel offset since the tires are only 255's?

Yeah, you can switch around when you need a little change.
The labor is not too bad, I was thinking 20 hours lol. Got me thinking
