Be specific on what you want the ECU tune to do. A true "tune" is car and data specific. A genberic tune is just that.
Even Kleeman will tell you that true gains can only be had IF the ECU tune is done using some data (Dyno / datalogger). You're lucky that the '04 is an easier tune. Also, go to the dealership and get a full service first, including all updates so you start fresh.
Good luck.

I wouldnt even do the ecu unless you are going to add headers and or a throttle body.Put the cash towards better improvements.

Please do not white out the bottom grille. It'll be way too much white. Just leave it black. :thumbup:

Agreed!!

For the money you are talking, I'd get a pulley and put the rest towards the cosmetics you want. You can get performance mods once you get used to the beast and figure out exactly what else you want.

nice car


i suggest you paint all the chrome black, go w/ black wheels and paint the calipers white w/ black amg/brembo writing.

do pulley and throw a couple of k&n's in there, maybe do headers and full exhaust

do all performance mods before ecu, that way you can get a custom tune

I would suggest, getting the RENNTech ELM to lower your beast on Jeff's M3's, they get a pulley and ECU. I would say most are very very happy with the RENNtech ELM, combo'ed with a nice set of modulares you've got a great start!

Let me know if we can help you in anyway...

Hello and welcome!
Glad to see another AMG owner ready and exited to mod his car.

As far as wheels go. Go with a name brand and make sure the 5alignment pin holes match the factory tool!

When it comes to the engine Mod's, My experience with ANY car is that it is best to stick with one company and go with then; i.e. Renntech tuning and etc... My recommendation would be to NOT flip flop and mish mash.

along with the above, As you will and have seen, here on the Forums you will get one of each response imaginable, mine being one...

Go Luck and Happy Driving
