Maybe i'm just too old, but I'm not getting this. This is an S class; Soderklasse, a classy and graceful automobile. I find all aftermarket stuff to only take away from all that this institution has been known to stand for.

One would not put a rubber strap on a Calatrava either, would one?

If you are interested in the best sound quality, why would you not order the upgraded Burmester system in the original build. I can't imagine an after market installation would sound any better and it certainly will not look as good as the original design.

Me too. When I see something like this, I wonder if some 22" wheels, some chrome "DUB" monikers on the front fenders and maybe an "In Loving Memory of......." decal in the back window can be far behind. Normally one would have to go to a bowling alley to see a vehicle of this stature. Maybe some lights in the wheel wells, put a big star in the grill--lighted, of course and maybe some glass pack mufflers and we'll be all set for a cruise down Whittier Blvd., but you know, like I'm jus sayin.

your instagram

I just looked at your instagram account and i could not help but respond even though i usually don't ...i see some pictures of delicious food and cars...i am sure you are a nice person at heart....

Is this your sclass or are you hooking it up for someone? Either way this car is hideous...this car does not represent the elegance and grace of an sclass.

Also what's up with the instagram post "great night with my ******!! There is not one black person in that picture..bunch of asians and one white guy. i hate it when non black people try to act black. you are asian for crying out loud!

I look at that car and get a headache.
Would you fetch me the aspirin from the medicine cabinet, you will find them behind the untouched bottle of shaving cream.

Streamliner..see what I did there

This page wasn't private a day ago. There isn't much on there with w222's except that one pic really. There are some w221 pics. Not sure who owns the w222.

I say to each his own, it's not like some of the hideous stuff seen in these pages on the outside, like the trim packages and crazy wheels.


As far as the Bermester being the top of the line sound system....don't get me wrong....it is top of the line and great. But, I got a custom system in a Ford F-250 pick up truck that sounds almost as good as my Bermester High End 3D. Here is my experience with the Bermester....it has a feature where you can specially tune it for each seating location, so if you tune it on the driver.....boy it sounds great. But, if you focus the special tuning on the front seat passenger is sounds good for that passenger and "not so good, or as good" for everyone else. I like it, and I would buy it again, but I understand someone wanting to do something different. SO.....I'm not hating on your sound system.....enjoy.

Yep, I just had a 2015 C class loaner and tried out that same feature on the Bermester. It only sounds good for the seating position you set it on. So, I turned it off the driver side and set it to all 4 equally.

So, when you did that were you satisfied with the sound quality. Here is what I've found.....Most of the time I'm in my car alone, so its all good as I tune the system for the drivers seat and it sounds great. I can really crank it up (I like my music loud) and at really high volume I get no distortion or crackling. Meaning it has the power to match my preferred level of volume without a sweat.

Then, I'll take someone for a ride or a test drive and they've heard about the sound system an it's one of the first thing they ask to hear. So, I play it and the politely say "thats so nice," then I focus the sound on their seating position and thats when the ooooos and aaaaaahhhs start.

I'm going to do a little experiment and drive around with the sound not focused one any particular seat for a couple of days and see what thats like.

WOW!! Old thread but why all the hate. The subwoofer instal looks very professional. These vehicles do not have good low end bass. Burmeister is so so...FOCAL ridiculous reproduction of sound. Audiophile if the correct speakers were chosen. I will add some JL Subs for the missing low end...The car certainly lifts when driven, this is a module and it is slammed for photos. Old thread back to life.
