Worth getting a PP tune?

I drive a w212 E63 non S. Though the car is relatively fast, I feel like it could use a bit more ommph!
A local MB shop says they can upload a stock tune off of a stock 2012 CLS63 S. I know if I get the extra few ponies and torque it would probably satisfy me. Though I donít know if itís worth it vs getting a full blown stage one from a company like Eurocharged.
what do you guys think?

Call Vlad and talk to him. He is a very knowledgeable fella and explains everything to you.
I have a stage 1 and a cat-delete. If you were any closer to KW, I'd meet up with you and let you drive my car to see if the difference is worth it or not.

Car is completely different with a tune.
Maybe a drive can convince you lol

if you're paying for it, theres no sense getting PP numbers. go stage 1. theres no compromise in reliability at all and it will yield more gains than a PP car

Never heard of anyone getting a upgraded Mercedes PP tune. I would just spend the money on a aftermarket tune because if something did go wrong with a tune that MBusa will deny coverage because your car didnít come with a PP tune.
