Gotchya. Yeah, I remember on the stock piece there was some type of gasket in there. I couldn't handle a constant whistling while driving so that would have to be addressed.

Hopefully the dealer just puts the stock piece from another car on there for him and then takes care of that other car themselves.

Well said bro, I would pass cuz those little things will eat me in the long run.

good luck to the OP
I agree hyper, things changed a lot here.. We used to be like family here & pick on each others (like ur taste for rainbow wheels lol)

But now it seems like a high school yard where the new kids get bullied.. At least that's my opinion. The show must go on..

Well hopefully I broke the trend a little bit here! You guys have been great so far and I appreciate all the advice. I agree I could've searched a little more when I first posted but a lot of posts on here were outdated. I got the biggest problem out of the way in discovering the headbolt issue and what engine serial numbers were affected. So I spoke to the dealer today and basically asked him if I could take the top grille piece off of the black c63 they have there and he said yeah so we'll see how that goes Thursday.

Dealer is doing an oil change and painting the rear bumper for me at $31.5k. A few of the other minor blemishes I'll fix myself. I'm gonna pick her up on Thursday!
Congrats on the purchase & glad u will get few things fixed before delivery.

Thanks man I'm excited. My first non boosted car lol. I've went from a 2006 evo 9 about 9 years ago then I had a BMW 135i until about 4 years ago then I bought a 93 Supra and had that for about 2 years now into the c63 world.

I went to check out that same exact C63 you just bought at Imperial Highline about a year ago. I'm surprised hes had it on the lot for such a long time.

Oh wow really? Nice. Apparently they took it off the lot but left it on the website while the owners wife drove it for the past year.

I agree on the LSD, it is not necessary unless u plan on tracking the car. I don't have LSD in mine & never felt the need to have it. It's good u are aware of the headbolts issue & picked a car out of that range.

The C63 is built solid, again like skratch posted, keep a close look on wear & tear items like brakes, tires, belts & such.

Enjoy the car & the forum!
Well said! 👍

Congrats on the purchase!
Maybe they removed the insulation to get more sound out of the engine
IMO it's not a big deal:

with the top grille piece missing and no insulation it's freaking me out. I'm waiting for the dealer to let me know.

I'm also curious to why the insulation is not present. Their could have been some sort of front end work done and still not reported on Carfax. Could of got it done privately and not through insurance work. My C63 had a clean 1 owner carfax and realized there was some sort of body work/minor accident on the front end. I'm OCD and as I was cleaning my car and noticed there was a dry not properly cleared and buffed polished area below the fog grill area. Which is a sign of not a fully completed paint job. Good news is my mom runs a car dealership and has solid ties to MB, and paint & body shops. So I'm getting the whole front end redone and a clear bra as well as a hood alignment to sit flush with front bumper. Just don't mess around and not get warranty and you'll be good. IMO
