  1. Selling lol. Listed on carousell and sgmerc. Pm me if interested.
  2. Which car model is your amg grill for? Technically they are quite interchangeable across the recent merc models range.
  3. Brand new aftermarket Distronic-Style mirror finish 2D Mercedes front grill star. Confirm fit X253 (GLC) and W205 (C) front grills original or aftermarket. Most likely can fit other recent Mercedes models but please do your own research. Special version with high gloss black ring. $60 cash and carry. Buddle purchase with front grill for better deal.
  4. After installing the GLC63 grille with the 2D star with black ring, decided that the 2D star with chrome ring still looks more merc. So did a quick 2 minute swap.
  5. It's been a while since I updated the forum on the mods done. Did a modified night package vinyl stickers with matt black stickers for the window frames, roof rails. CF effect stickers for the wing mirrors, front and rear bumper chrome strips, foglamp area vent strips. Removed all the emblems from the rear except for the star. 20" Stance rims in brushed titanium finish staggered. Changed my diamond grille to the GLC 63 style vertical grille.
  6. Aftermarket Diamond Grill for Mercedes Benz GLC. - High gloss black base version. - free AMG grill badge worth $25 - condition almost brand new - already out of car, cash and carry Price non-negotiable. *Mercedes front grill star not included in the price. Bundle price $240.
  7. Definitely not a need, more of a want. But for the wheel size and profile of the GLC, 19" actually starting to look puny. 20" will not see significant differences. So thinking of 21".
  8. Added some photos of the actual items.
  9. Not sure yet. Probably looking 21" staggered.
  10. Forgot to add: condition of the rims are excellent. No curb rash or chips.
  11. I have a set of original AMG 19" non-staggered rims with Pirelli Scorpion Verde RFT (80%) for sale. Coming off my GLC. PM me to offer. 5-twin-spoke AMG light-alloy wheels, painted titanium grey with high-sheen finish[1] Front axle: 8.0 J x 19, tyre size: 235/55 R 19 Rear axle: 8.0 J x 19, tyre size: 235/55 R 19 Adding some actual photos of my car.
  12. For those interested to have instructions on how to remove the door panel, please refer to the other thread on that. http://www.sgmerc.com/topic/25356-glc-remove-front-internal-door-panel/ After the interior door panel is removed, this is what you have. Notice the empty triangular speaker grille? Look at the following picture for reference on where are the clips and connection points. This will let you know where to push/pull to release the stock grille as well as where the new rotary tweeters should be installed. The highlights are colour coded to show where the surfaces are mated. Blue to blue, green to green and red to red. The 3D Rotary Tweeter main housing installed in the position of the former orginial empty speaker grille. This is the 3D tweeter held up and labeled to show the important connection points. Essentially split into 2 sets: S= Speaker L=Led. The various connection points before attachments After connecting to some of the stock door connectors Now hold up the interior door panel, connect S1 connector to the door panel speaker, plug one of the blue connectors to "5" slot of the DCM. Plug the other blue connector to L2 connector. Next, you are ready to reinstall the door panel: - reattach the door latch wire - thread the door lock knob through the hole in the door panel - line up all the panel holder 8+1 bits, make sure the top horizontal window edge is "hooked" along the attachment ledge. Start to give firm hard thud using heel of your palms to secure down the door panel to the metal frame. - screw in the 2 T30 torx screw into the original holes. - switch on your engine and enjoy the fruits of your labour!
  13. There are request for DIY walkthrough for installation of the 3D Rotary tweeters. I shall split the instructions into 2 parts for categorization and ease of search. The tool you absolutely need is simply just a Torx driver with T30 Torx bit. The rest are really good to have: trim removal pry, grip work gloves, addition narrow tip flat heas screw driver to depress the connector's release tabs. And before starting, lower both the front windows until fully retracted, reduce the chance of brealing the glass panels. Next swtich off the engine and power to the car. 1. Using the T30 torx bit driver, unscrew the torx headed screws from the 2 locations circled in red. A magnetized torx bit will be better to make sure your unscrewed screws don't drop into some of the narrow gaps in the door frame. 2. Next, use the interior trim pry to pull the interior door panel from the metal door frame. The locations of the various panel studs are shown in the picture as illustrated. So pry at the right location. Be careful of the door lock stub once the panel is pulled free from the frame. Make sure you don't lose any of the panel studs. 3. Once the inteior door panel is free from the door frame, remember you still have a few connections to release before the whole panel can be moved aside. - Unhook the door latch cable and unplug the connector as shown. - unolug the original speaker cable and connector from the door panel speaker. - unplug the wires and blue connectors that are plugged into "5" and "6" slots on the Door Control Module (DCM) After all the above is done, you can remove the interior door panel and move it aside to a safe location so as not to scratch or damage the surfaces. Now you are ready to install the 3D Rotary tweeters.
