Install was much easier that I expected. I didn't get it perfect but unless you're super close it looks great.

20" Vossen CV-7, tint, resonator delete, tune, lowering links, chrome delete (in-progress)

Nice Vossens mikeg4572!
Did you have any trouble fitting the Mercedes center cap in yours? I tried putting some black ebay caps in and they wouldn't fit without buckling.

Happy to see this forum getting more active!
how is your gas mileage with the resonator delete and tune?

Are those some service they will do on your car or product that they sell for you to do it yourself?
The reason I ask is they are in Canada not US.

Wheels look dope great choice.

What style diffuser is that and do you have pictures on how it was mounted?

I am in the process of installing my diffuser soon but am wondering that if i have to remove the rear bumper will the diffuser need to be removed before... (Blind spot assist went bad and its covered under CPO so i dont want the dealer to give me a hard time)

Thanks

The diffuser I purchased is an ebay item and not very good quality. I had it carbon fiber wrapped but it still looks less than what I wanted. Fitment needed a few adjustments but it can be installed without removing the bumper. It's mounted using the same type of tabs as the OEM. If I remember correctly, I also used eight screws that were included with the OEM diffuser.

Looks very nice. Could you share the wheel and tire spec with us?

Wheels are 20x8.5 in the front with an offset of ET25 on 245/35/20 tires. Rears are 20x10 with an offset of ET38 on 285/30/20 tires. Fronts are almost flush but the rears could have been more aggressive to sit flush with the fender. I thought about using spacers but since I lowered the car by 2 inches I decided to stay with the current offset to prevent fender rubbing.

These are the type of tips you would need. Any exhaust shop would be able to install them. Just make sure you get a CLS 63 diffuser because they won't fit the CLS400 diffuser.

Thanks! I went with DMP car designs for the screen! He sends a how to video with the kit, but I will say even without the video, itís plug n play! They do have whatís app and great customer serv if you need help installing... the ledís werenít a specific name brand, picked them up from a local shop for $25! I tied them in with my interior ambient light so when itís on the footwell lights come on also! I will stop by and get that info for you on the lights... it had no name brand on the box...

That is a crazy nice interior. The car is begging for some aftermarket wheels though

Where did you get the mats from? Last time I ordered a set, they didn't fit at all! I actually like the red but I think I will stick with black/white stiching
