I'm just curious what things you guys have planned for your car? If you got a check in the mail today for $20k that you could only spend on your MB what would you buy? And I mean anything, would you upgrade the steering wheel on your AMG to have paddles instead of buttons? Would you get some wheels, tires, and lower the suspension? Would you go straight to the engine and slap on all the bolt ons money can buy? Would you install a crazy sound system? Would you strip it down and turn it into a race car?

Oversized SC pulley
SC Intercooler
Shorty headers
80mm TB
VRUS airbox
Quaife LSD
Airmatic shock revalving (done on front, rear remains open)
Swap out all underbody bushings
Reinforce suspension (toe links, etc)
E63 Rotors (front)
Custom rotors (rear and non EVO or EVO's new revision when released)
Reus Stereo upgrade
Remote camera lenses mounted in the front and rear bumpers
Command modified by navTV to have dual AV input

I think I'm already over budget so that is enough for now.

This is all I have left to do on my car:

Kleemann SC
Kleemann ECU
Kleemann LSD

Unfortunately that's the same price as another car. :wall:

Not necessarily a fan but it appears to be the best choice customer service-wise based on what you guys have went through. Not to mention it has been proven on 3-4 other cars on MBW. The only thing is shipping to Colorado. I usually don't like to mix/match parts but the Quaife does have its advantages over the Kleemann. I believe it was something about not having to be rebuilt after a certain amount of use.

I'll probably end up getting none of the mentioned but just typing out the wishlist. ;)

20k huh? Lets see:

- Installation for C/O
- Renntech Wing
- CF Interior Trim
- Illuminated Door Sills
- Installation for my HU
- New Sound System
- Bi-Xenon Lights
- Pay Lensolo to make a shitload of things into CF
- Custom front bumper lip
- Eisenmann Exhaust
- Pulley Kit

And if I have enough money left, I could use the rest to buy me a night with a sexy hooker.

As a joke when I was picking up my car, I was thinking of asking Vadim to change the lettering on my car to read "E650 AMG" just to see his reaction to my request, but then I forgot when I took delivery of it. It should have been a classic :wall:

Oh well, next time :rofl: :rofl:

Option 1) I would ship my car to AMG and have them do a true W202 C55 conversion on my car.

Option 2) I would ship my car to MKB and have them do the 6.0L conversion on my car.

Though I think both options probably cost more than 20k. :(

1st Option: Brabus engine upgrade to 4.0 and other stuff if any money left over. :thumbup:

2nd Option: Kleemann SC and ECU and other stuff if any money left over :clap:

3rd Option: Trade my C350 in for a C55... (haven't thought any farther than that) :drool:
