Awesome. Throw a party at your place with the extra - lol. You'd get some takers.

The front mounted intercooler assemblies on the 19 onwards C63's are even more exposed than the pre update cars, so there's more chance of debris caused damage.
International shipping available.

Hopefully you donít get another stone strike.

These AMG heat exchangers are very weak and unprotected.

The ARE Cooling heat exchanges are approximately 5 times stronger.

Anyone know of any aftermarket grills that would offer better protection? Zunsport in the UK makes some nice looking woven wire grills for E63’s but not for C63’s.

Update: the car is still sitting at the dealer 3 days now stranded in Charlotte.



It is looking like one of the coolant pumps got messed up as well and is not actuating. I am going to see if this part is in stock. We are not going to have it done today if we do not have the part.

No, it is consequential damage from loosing coolant. The part is $378 and the labor is $429.
I can overnight it and have it here tomorrow.

Same thing happened to me. Rock hits radiator, coolant leaks out, pump burns up. I can’t believe with all the sensors there’s not one to detect low coolant levels/ pressure.

Seems to happen too easily reading about people’s experiences

Mercedes picked up 1,000 of the bill which left me with 1500 to pay. Left radiator was toast and then the coolant pump went out and made me pay for that as well. I feel like that should have been covered under warranty.

My transmission looks OK but is it normal for oil temp to be this high? Stop and go traffic for about 30 minutes this morning.

201F is completely normal, if not a little on the cool side. Commuting in summer weather here in TX, the engine oil temp is usually ~215F.
