Looking good bro. You change the flappy paddles yourself?

Love the added bits especially that wheel. Those wheels should come stock on our cars. Enjoy

Great choice in headers! Do you have an x-pipe in your system? How was the install?

Please post a sound clip.

Been a while since ive posted. Damn you Grant! You're always doing fun and cool looking stuff to your ride. I need a new steering wheel too. Stock CLS55 isn't cutting it. Beautiful headers too. I may be switching to different headers in the near future as well. Car is looking awesome man!

Sweet looking wheel! I bet that alone makes the car fee like a whole another beast. The headers are sick as well

Making the paddles out of the buttons is not difficult it does take time to do though. Here's the link.

Thanks I love the headers so far. I have an X pipe in the traditional location of the resonator and then stock mufflers.

The shop that made the headers did the install so that was easy

I'm getting the care retuned by Jerry in the next day or so as the tune needs to account for the long tubes, I had shorties before and the new injectors I added. Once that's done I will get a sound clip up for sure

Thanks Justin

They are a 200 cell cat that's rated for 800-900 HP that the shop that did the install uses.

Thanks for checking on the shift knob

Thanks Chris.

The car feels so much better with the headers. Haven't had a chance to really get on it as it was raining most of the weekend here in Houston. I'm also wanting Jerry to retune it with the headers and 550cc injectors I added

These steering wheels are the greatest. I loved the one I had in my E55.

Will definitely have Ivan do one for the GT-R.
