Yeah I think so. Its in my cart on eBay. S63 diffuser kit is next, then 4 stage ceramic on exterior and wheels. Speaking of wheels, I'm going dark dark dark gun metal. More to come...

Ill be honest blk wheels isnt my thing, but certain cars it looks good. I dont like the dark gunmetal either..to me it just looks like dirty wheels. I did consider blking out my s550 when i got it. Decided to leave it stock I like the car to much. I have considered 21-22" wheels but always go back n forth.

Yeah 21/22" wheels I imagine rides a bit rough. The 20's are enough for me (for right now at least)...

Nice mods!

Can I ask you where you got the s63 amg diffuser and tips from?

I also see that you also have the fog light in the rear diffuser. Is it actually functional?

Light is not functional, yet... Hoping I can get it up and running in the future but if not, no big deal. I just wanted this look and needed to fill that hole. Below are the links to the two items I purchased if you are interested:

Diffuser
https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-14-17-W...72.m2749.l2649

Light
https://www.ebay.com/itm/1x-REAR-Low...72.m2749.l2649

Thank you so much.

Were there any fitment issues? Was it a simple install? Anything I should be looking at for?

Thank you again.

You do have to remove the rear bumper in order to have it installed. The tips are also not sitting 100% even. I'll have to come up with a solution for that in the future but I'm fine with that based on what I paid. My shop said the whole install was pretty straight forward. It looks factory (minus the tips needing to be adjusted). No gaps between the diffuser and bumper. I'm pretty happy with it overall.

Where did you get the tail lights from? I just cracked one of my tail lights and will probably have to replace the whole tail light assembly. But it would be great if I can just replace the plastic cover since nothing is wrong with the light itself.
