I'm down with that. We could meet at the top of the parking structure near the Yardhouse. Let's see who else wants to roll

My ride is pretty plain with exception of the integrated radar detector unit and aftermarket parking sensors I was waiting to do wheels until after I needed to replace the stock tires. Windows need to be tinted but I haven't made time to get it done.
Saturday morning breakfast works good too. We can meet up near the beach, say Crystal Cove, near where the original Cars and Coffee used to be, LOL.

I'd like to check out your aftermarket parking sensors and I have a recommendation for a good tint shop in Irvine/Tustin.

I'm cool with both options.

Okay, we're meeting up next Saturday, Sept. 8th at the Crystal Cove shopping area in Newport Beach at 9:00am in front of Starbucks. Some of you may remember that this was the original location for Cars and Coffee a few years ago.

PM me if you can make it.

Is this location where the "serious" car meets tend to be? Serious meaning the $200k (Lambo, Ferrari, etc.) and up crowd.

It was great seeing your car in person. It looks sick. The rims are a great match to the color of the car. Thanks for coming out. Let's do it again soon!

Good to meet you guys also. The exhaust was KILLER!!! Deep rumble that maintained the deep tone all the way up to ~5k on the tach but the volume didn't explode as I expected. Very drivable with slight change to vole but HUGE change in tone. Think baritone! This is on my list of future mods for sure..just need to get the wheels first.

Finally got the Brabus wheels cleaned up and installed with Michelin Pilot Super Sports. Looks and feels great. Will attach some pics and revise the sig pic once I get a chance to take some decent pics

We should have another mini meet! Love all the goodies you put on your car, especially since I'm lucky to be close enough to see it all live.

The exhaust is just sick. It really lets the E550 breathe and sound like the 5.4L V8 engine that it is. It has a low exhaust rumble at lower RPMs and actually gets quieter at higher RPMs/highway speeds. Perfect for a daily driver.
Does the e550 feel any different? Any improvement in performance? Does it affect any warranty issues? Thanks. Regards. Ned.

E550 feels different. Mid-range power and top-end power are improved. Car seems to hold the gears longer and the downshifts are phenomenal. Overall, the 5.4L V8 is able to breathe more and estimated HP improvement is +8-10, per Brabus.

As far as warranty goes, my local Mercedes dealer, Fletcher Jones Mercedes, sells Brabus-equipped cars right off the showroom floor. Exhaust, wheels, body kit, you name it. If anything goes wrong, since Brabus North America is close by, I can always take it to them as well.

Hi, just joined today after a few years of scanning the forum..pretty excited. Just wondering, any issues with the Brabus sport exhaust since it was put in years ago? I am thinking about having it done on my car in Phoenix

Still going strong. High quality, great rumble and sound. When valets start it up, you know when it's coming. Highly recommended!

'14 W212 E550
Hi guys,
Been doing a fair bit of research around the Brabus performance parts (their official site is confusing as hell). I have a MY '14 E550 W212, do they make an exhaust that supports this model year? I know they make products for earlier MY W212's.
