  1. I'm definitely waiting for the new facelift ... Was disappointed that they launched the e53 model before the facelift. Should have timed with the new FL
  2. Hi Guys, E63 users can advise on the use of this vehicle as a daily driver, mostly on the following aspects: 1. Comfort with full load passengers 2. Comfort for kids and older passengers 3. Harshness of acceleration at traffic lights Thanks
  3. KBS Motorsports. If spray without removing should be about 500-700 depends on your brake kit type. If remove the caliper and paint, need to bleed the brakes, so will hit above 1k. If there are cheaper alternatives, maybe other bros can share as well.
  4. My stock rims are 19inch Multi spokes. I customed this spec via PI. So i just painted matt black over and kept the chrome ring without painting. Workshop had a bro dekitting, so bought 2nd hand $200. After respray cant tell diff whether new or old. Trying to get a muted design look which is still very much mercedes but to reflect a younger driver.
  5. Decided to go with red ... also added c43 lip spoiler ... looks pretty slick ...
  6. Anyone painted the AMG brake kits red for w205? Just wondering if the stock silver is better or red is better ..
  7. Mine boot closes automatically in a uniform manner with no mid pause. PI as well.
  8. Thanks for the perspective
  9. 1. The AMG brakes do have grinding noises ultra slow speeds, known issues. I am not very sure about stock brakes though. I texted my workshop guy earlier to ask about your issue, he just said "some cars do have issues, they will change the brakes and no more issues". 2. I notice Merc wipers slower than some Jap Cars, but having said that even on the slowest setting in non extreme rain, a wipe will clear all water away. Glass cleaners do help. Could be wipers, maybe u can ask them change wipers on goodwill.
