Hi Bros,

Did anybody install aftermarket AMG bodykit for W205 yet? If so, any feedback? Heard the fitment can be misaligned and tend to have some wave effect on the kits after awhile. Please advise. Thks  

So far the aftermarket bodykits I've seen fit quite well. Depends on where and who you get the kit from, of course there are lower quality kits in the market too.

Hi Mark, 

Which are the better workshops that I can try? Benzline is only doing the original ones.  JSM has got the kits but just wondering any Bros here fitted the kit from them before. Any review?

They're not bad, I know of a few members who got their kit from them. Friendly and accommodating boss. Alternatively you can consult Sonic Racing, Miracle Workz or GMS.

Hi whats the difference between the "original c63 amg kit" and the other similar kits?  Is the material inferior or is the fitting bad?  Tks

W205 C63 amg kit front bumper is diff from normal amg line kit if not wrong.

I do find the avantgarde chrome lip which stretches from the front, to side skirts and rear bumper very classy and nice, executive look.

AMG and C63 more sporty, as its bigger and makes your ride looks lower. But agree, not much diff btw avantgarde and AMG front bumper.

Thanks folks for the feedback.  And I agree with your comments.  However the so called "AMG" line that c&c sells as a kit does not have the same goodies as similar kits in the USA or Europe.  For e.g. AMG line in Europe includes sun-roof and Avantgarte line in US comes with 18" rims in some US dealers.

Also, a distinction has to be made between a simple "AMG" kit from c&c and a full C63 AMG and Barbarus kit which are only installed in outside workshop. These come with Quad exhausts or tips and Diffusers and some also have Vavletronic management systems and c63 Bonnets.  

However what i meant to ask was the difference in the pricing of the same kits from outside workshops.  Sorry i was not very clear in my question.  If u take a look for example at a full c63 AMG kit which includes quads exhausts and c63 bonnet etc, there is a huge difference in pricing from over $5k to over $18k.   I wont name the workshops and can pm if u need a quote. But I struggle to understand the difference in pricing for what is apparently the same full c63 AMG kit?  Are the cheaper workshops using inferior ill-fitting kits or are the more expensive workshops taking us for a ride?

Amg line actually quite the same between US and UK specs. some region may throw in additional addon like sunroof /navi etc.

Amg line is more of the sporty mod over the avantgrade and dun really replace the real amg bodykit completely  

Amg line also consist of interior trims which outside workshop may not be able to provide.

Pricing wise could be due to the quality and fitment of the body kit , these are after all OEM (copied)_... if original ones may cost a lot.. at least 3 times more. i also realized OEM kits tend to look really bad or easily cracked after a few years, but don take my words for it... some are good too, costing a bit more.

Tks Superman u r right.  The OEM kits r made in Taiwan and very cheap.  

BUT are the genuine kit made in Germany and by Mercedes AMG?

And who are selling the genuine kit?

How do we even know they r genuine and not OEM kits?

Tks Superman.  I understand that.  That's what the workshop tells me too, that the original is from Germany. But how do I know I am really getting a bona fide German made original kit?

I may end up paying the price of a "Original" kit but end up with a Taiwan made kit :(

Maybe I can I ask for their purchase invoice but that wont look good leh.

And someone mentioned Miracle Workz above.  Are they the same as Miracle Body Workz ?  Is this recommended reliable workshop?  Miracle Body Workz at 48 Toh Guan Road East #04-126 Enterprise Hub S(608586)

Yes Miracle Workz at Toh Guan. I got my W204 C63 kit from him.. made in Taiwan version.. Maybe you can check with him if he has original ones or not.
