Quad tips purchased separately.

OEM AMG parts along with the required mounting brackets.

I even got the trunk sensor to function with the diffuser, after many claimed it would not.

car looks awesome mate! great job!

quick question and i hope you wont mind me borrowing your photo...
can you (anybody with a FL E) tell me if the black part on your side skirt is removable and can be purchased by itself or is it one piece with the whole side skirt?



cheers mate!

That's just a 5D glossy carbon fiber wrap, mate.

Does anyone know if the E63 calipers and rotors are Direct bolt ons?

i kinda figured that out but originally the FL have that carved/attached to the skirt.
pre FL dont have that. im thinking of adding that to my pre fl sedan. i can just cut vinyl and stick it there but ill need the shape and measurement which i dont have OR if that is removable and not carved on your skirt, maybe i can just purchase it by itself and glue it to my car somehow OR get the whole FL skirt and update mine then wrap that part like you did. i just dont know as i havent seen one upclose. cheers!

It's a tricky piece to wrap from sure. On a pre FL if will be easier since you can pretty much design your own line.

They also make knife-less tape. Check it out, will make the process much easier.

ive done some wrapping on my cars so im a bit familiar with the process though i havent tried the knifeless tape.
Im hoping to get the exact shape if i could, so if i can buy that from the dealership by itself ill just figure out how to attach it to my car.
but yeah, worst case scenario, ill just use the knifeless cutter and have a go at it.

If i show you what the car originally looked like you will laugh and say its a grandpa mobile lol it was awful. The kit was a total pkg i purchased everything came unpainted front bumper rear bumper rockers the quad tail pipe fittings the box was huge it came by freight and had a million pieces it was literally a puzzle my body shop gave me a great deal was done in 2 weeks i first dropped the kit off they matched the paint Then called me when all the parts that needed to be painted were done and ready and then i dropped the car off literally picked it up that same week on a friday. The wrap i had wrapped the roof the mirrors did a chrome delete and also painted the calipers. Gloss black wrap on roof textured carbon fiber on mirrors and gloss black for the chrome delete.

Yes, i also do not want a bolt on spoiler. One with an adhesive application will do just fine. I wonder if i run a very hot thin piece of wire underneath the existing spoiler, will it come off nicely. Has anyone tried taking off the trunk spoiler ?

if yours is only mounted by double sided tape, use a heat gun and fishing wire like you would with badges.

Fishing wire, heat gun/hair dryer and goo gone will do the job. Tried dental floss, it's a pita compared to fishing line.

or you can get an eraser wheel for an electric screwdriver. Just make sure it spins fast enough, but not too fast 🤔 Don't want to end up messing with the clear coat. Personally I went the safer route with goo gone and patience.

Goo Gone is NOT safer by any means. The eraser wheel is soft and leaves zero swirls. Goo gone is messy and the hard rubbing required to remove the residue will scuff your clear coat. It's like sand paper on your finish, look at it under a light...you'll see fine scratches.

I stand corrected. It's due for a detail regardless 😕

there is a tutorial on YouTube, think is for the W204, but same mirrors and procedure. I did it on mine, just be cautious when you adjust the glass, so you don't accidentally break it. It takes a bit of force to get them off, so use some muscle, but brain as well 😂.

Thats look dope Sebas, it accents your black grille and black emblem very nicely. Some rear spacers would make your already sweet ride just a tad bit sweeter.
