Yes you are correct...i feel the sound quality is better at higher volume...but i guess sound quality can be subjective...the burmester machined brushed metal speaker covers must be ordered with the door panels...do this more for the aesthetics and luxurious feel...for me i believed luxury sedan must have some real wood tastefully done

AMG chrome plated door pins...honestly find that mercedes should have given better than the stock door pins made of cheap plastic covers...about $100 plus..from benzline.

Sprintbooster to improve acceleration response...useful in overcoming initial inertia of the 7G gearbox response

Traditionalist at heart..find it strange that there is no exo tips sticking out but then that's me..removed stock diffuser and replaced with Brabus sports diffuser with chrome brabus quad tips..2k inclusive installation and paint.

Just wanted to be different..too many AMG plated c class around so decided to go the Brabus route..brabus nameplate original..was thinking of the much cheaper imitation ones from ebay but when compare the chrome finishing and font...decided to get the real one..$110.

Nice modifications to W205. :D

 

1. Customised leather stitched knee cushion pad for left leg: is it a permanent fixture or can it be removed?

 

2. Illuminated Star: Do you need to drill a hole in the fuse/relay module?

 

Maybe those W205 owners can consider some group buy.

Like the tactile feel of the metallic finished steering buttons like those on the S class...swapped out the black plastic stock ones and replaced with these..$400 fr a pair.

Can be removed..3M tape and velcro adhesive.

 

2. Illuminated Star: Do you need to drill a hole in the fuse/relay module?

Dont know about that but i didnt recall observing any drilling...

Installed the Burmester Gmbh mid range speakers...compared to the stock speakers...able to play at higher volumes without the music sounding like it's crashing..sound is more crisp at higher volume and can handle higher bass limits than the stock...don't expect a miraculous change in sound though...it is just a byte better than stock..but you get nice aesthetics in the brushed aluminium speaker covers..thinking of adding aftermkt tweeters as the tweeter housing in our w205 are dummies...

2nd photo shows stock speaker(top) vs burmester(bottom)
