I have bought the rear bumper of face-lift model for my 2012 CLS63. Does it require the tail light upgrade too? Please share your experience.

If you see the facelift in live you would charge your mind. It's amazing.

You would be better off selling your car and buying a new one.
It will be incredibly expensive to update the front (hood, lights, bumper) and it will devalue your car.
I would not recommend it.

Thanks for sharing your experience! I wonder if the facelift headlights would fit the 2012 models? They look so much cooler!!!

I have the rear AMG bumper and diffusor fits but with some cutting. The sides of the diffusor are a bit shorter. I would get a new diffusor it doesn't cost much. It might be a different situation with CLS350 models. On the top of it I believe you must change the tail lights too. There is a same problem as it is with upgrading the 2012 w212 to facelift version. There is a gap between tail lights and the bumper.

you can find some cheap parts in Poland in you live in Europe try Allegro pl web site

Would love to see if the face-lifted headlights can be plug and play with the existing wiring and if fitment is on point without changing the front bumper.

Apparently I'm in the minority here, but I love the fact that the "old headlights" distinguish the CLS compared to the new style that makes the C, E, CLS and S blend together. Am I crazy?

Sweet very nice!

How did you deal with led light in the prefacelift bumper? If you remove them, dont you end up with an error message?

Looks really good!

Thanks,

Any reason you chose the Amg style front instead of the Amg Modell front though?

It is the original amg model specific cls350 2015 bumper. Since my car is not cls63 amg i prefer to have it oem look instead of something that its not.
