I just traded my 17 C63S Cabrio for a 2018 S63 Sedan. I have blacked out a bunch of the chrome, added a Renntech rear carbon fiber trunk spoiler, Renntech handheld suspension lowering module, Rhanna RF2 matte black wheels, and ceramic tint. Tint was done just done today after the pictures. It had too much chrome for me as you can see in the before picture.

Awesome. Congratulations.

Could you give us you initial thoughts on the 9 speed trans? Any issues at slow speeds?

Thank you!

Yes. It is the Renntech OB2 port module. It worked very well.

Thank you!
The transmission is very smooth for the most part. It gets a little jerky at slow speeds in sport+

You may need to protect that beautiful BEAST from scratches and swirl marks by a ceramic coating and Xpel, that what I did to mine.

Do you have any specific product you recommend? There are so many out there. Did you do your wheels and if so does it help with the brake dust?

Xpel ultimate for a clear bra is the best, I have it on mine since it was new, had to replace the film on front pumper after a harsh winter up here in New England and it came out brand new.
Ceramic coating, I would say Ceramic Pro is the best but you need to put 9H 1st, search them before doing it.
Regarding the brake dust, it will just help cleaning it with a hose.

I love your car man, enjoy it

Wow, they REALLLLLLY changed the front end of this car. The side view from the front is DRAMATICALLY different as well. Thanks for posting these pics. I find them utterly fascinating.

Xpel is the best film available

I would do the entire hood as

opposed to the "bra effect" as

in just doing the apprx. front 24"

of the hood

Plus the other areas of the car that

need protection including the mirrors

Incredible car - enjoy the sound of

the exhaust


Thank-You
D.B.

If you have a dark car, you don't want to put ceramic on top of Xpel - you're sealing-off the "self healing" properties of Xpel

You want to use a consumable ie temporary sealant like Sonax Net Polymer
