the E43 is just a 3 Litre ride using the same 9G-tronic gearbox... not the standard 7 speed AMG speedshift DCT.....

For those with Avantgarde model, can consider this easy mod to change the black plastic door pin to the steel ones. Both the front and rear door pins are screwed on. Just remove them by turning anticlockwise with a plier.

When you unscrew it, is it easy to do it? Do you face with some resistance or it is easily remove?

Will the original pin gets crashed in the midst of unscrewing if  you tighten the grip?

You have done quite a lot of mod. Is it easy for you to change the door pin?

Tip for changing door pin, use a pair of pliers but wrap the pin with a rag first, then unscrew. When screwing in the metal one, repeat with rag to protect the pin because if the pliers slip, it will scratch the pin.

I am interested in the ICE upgrade also. Find the sound a bit teeny now.
