Let the modding begin ...

After owning my 2013 GLK350 for a month, I've already been busy ordering and installing a few things to make it "mine". I can never leave a car stock, have to give it some personality and make it different somehow.

GTR style grille was the first order of business.

OEM Grille ... See ya ...

GTR Grille ... Hello ...


Next was buying some new wheels for the summer and some nice sticky max performance summer tires.
I did a bunch of research and based on a Brembo build, I decided to go with the following:
Avant Garde M410 Wheels in matt black finish
  • 8.5 x 20 ET35
  • 10.5 x 20 ET45
Kumho ECSTA PS91 tires
  • 255/40ZR20 front
  • 295/35ZR20 rear
The rears are 0.1" larger rolling diameter. so well within safe limits for the 4MATIC (0.4%), well within recommendations of less than 1% difference. A square setup would likely handle better, but the staggered setup looks awesome! If I want to get on a track, I've got my A4 that I track now and then, so nmo need to make this handle like a monster.

Offset is just right, no rubbing and aggressize but not poking too much.

Side, still look a little bit like a 4x4, but I've got the lowering springs on order along with Bilstein B6 struts for all four corners. the H&R springs will drop it an 1".

Try a black roof and trim, a black roof has the effect of lowering it from the front.
