Hope everything works out well, and that i will be able to post before and after pictures/ a review.
The guy is pretty active on Whatsapp. You shouldn't have a problem as I got the device too and he's been waiting for me to install to test. Too bad my shop lost my original parts. I am planning on installing the device this Friday and we will see how it goes from there.

Brabus offers a module as well for the 43 and 63 models (I think it's a different part number) I can't find much info on it though.

Got the module finally!!! Was super easy to install, with zero issues. The seller is avail on whatís app as well, and was standing by throughout the process.

It comes standard with three options:
1. Stock
2. 32mm lowered all round
3. Custom (set ur own specs)

i drove with 32mm and the car drove really well! Itís a lot flatter, and you feel more through the steering.

I then tried 40mm front and 45mm rear, and the car looked great, but ride got bouncy.

Finally decided on 32mm front 37mm rear.

Below you will find a pic I took for fun, for the seller. Car looked great slammed.

Stock Ride Height

Lowered by 32mm all round

Seller asked me to slam it down by 50-60mm. I didnít dare go lower than 45mm front 50mm rear.

Final setup for now 32mm front, 37mm rear. As you can see, the rear gap is bigger than the front stock.

Another angle of 32mm front, 37mm rear

Grrr the pictures won't all load for me...the ones I'm seeing though, looks great!
How much clearance have you got with your new wheels with it that low? Is it pretty tight with the plastic flares front and back?

mother of God. that is beautiful

looks like 45mm/50mm is basically cars and coffee parking lot ride height.

thaks for the info on setting.

I will see if i can tolerate it at 40mm for regular commuting, if not, i'll use your specs..

Adding to above, I'm assuming having the vehicle itself in normal drive mode and switching to sport/sport plus or offroad it still lowers/raises?

Question for you guys:

When I set the suspension to sport or sport+, the screen tells me that I've lowered the car "-1.0"

Is that inches or an arbitrary number? Because visually it looks similar to your picture of 37mm in the rear, but not as low as 32mm front

If i was the sole driver of the car, i would be able to manage 35mm front 40mm rear. But it does get quite bumpy, i think if you hit any bumps at speed, you will be hitting your bump stops. Not to mention the camber that will cause premature wear on the inside of the tires.

Never tried, but i don't see why not!

Yes, so for now the new setting is just the standard height. Its all negligible, so you can still raise the car up, but raising it up won't go back up as high as before. I dont know how much the car raises by when you hit the "Raise button", but i assume it will be closer or a little tiny bit higher than stock.

Are you in the US? I have never seen that, or perhaps never noticed...

I think there was something wrong with the servers last night. I tried to reply to your message with more pictures, but it wouldn't upload either.

See the pictures below, if they answer your question. Zero issues with rubbing or clearance.
My wheels are really aggressive with ET18 all round, and even 0.5" width wider in the back.

Which menu did you use to get that screen?

Are you GLC 63 "S" or non s?

Also, to answer your question you would be even lower if you get into sport mode then. The changes i made was to the standard ride height, so raising or lowering from the console would start from the new set height.

Right, thats true. But I was curious how many mm the stock suspension will lower when it says "-1". I'm curious how close I get to your picture of 32mm/37mm because I'm debating whether I want a lowering module or not

The menu is VEHICLE / DYNAMIC SELECT / VEHICLE DATA

I have 2018 GLC43

Thanks, will check it out later, i assume -1 would be inches? So when you convert that to mm, you are probably looking at a 25mm drop.

Yeah that makes sense. I was looking at it again this morning. Too lazy to actually measure it, but it does look like it drops about an inch.

GLC 63 AMG, Audi R8 V10+
I ordered a set of links last night that will hopefully be here by the weekend. I plan to install myself. Does anyone have any tips? I've installed links on many of my other rides in the past. Typically getting the height right the first time is the toughest part. I want to level the ride out so I know the rear will require more drop than the front.

Did you paint your caliper red or car came like that ?

2018 glc43 AMG coupe
Here is the Ebay/Amazon Module on a stock 43 coupe with 21" wheels. Adjusted to -28 Front, -37 Rear. Its probably a little harsh to drive tbh, I think I'll be lifting it up a little more. I'm also a little concerned about the front and rear being adjusted differently, not sure of any adverse effects this may have on handling/geometry etc. It's a 1 finger gap rear and 1/2 finger gap front from the wheel arch. Handles great though, similar ride to my c43, complete with spinal compression.


Stock

-28 Front, -37 Rear

Roman I'm guessing you're the seller on Amazon? A quick search of your posts shows you only post about the module there telling people they paid too much if they didn't buy the Amazon one or linking to buy the Amazon one. Wouldn't it be better to be upfront if you're the seller and offer recommendations/help as such? It seems you have a decent product and ultimately it would be better for business if you're upfront that you're the seller.
