    I agree they aren't the prettiest, it's not a shade on the CLS. But it is the Mercedes equivalent of a corolla as you say. Looking forward to the 400+ at the crank after tune and exhaust

    An excess of rear toe-in right now, so it drives but doesn't handle too well New suspension parts on the way!

    Spamming the BMW thread with yet another non-BMW project. Not sure how much time I'm going to get in NZ for the next while to work on this, but got it parked up at least: 2014 AMG A45 50k's rear C-pillar , hatch and suspension 'adjustment' by inattentive (drunk?) driver while parked... The good, the bad and the ugly:

    Car is road legal, time to start modifying it

    Don't get me started on front bumpers.... I bought the 2016/2017 AMG front and rear bumpers from the UK (before I bought the one on the car) and it got stolen in transit... Not impressed. The facelift rear is only a minor change so I didn't even bother fitting it by itself. Luckily the old style AMG bumper came with the bonnet and guards I needed.

    Keeping it for sure. Which is the same thing I've said about every car I've owned

    And a bit of bodywork back on. Still lots of panel alignment and undertrays, brackets, grille etc to go.

    Not saying they are terrible, they flow enough for 550+ HP. But they are a compromise on size/shape vs. performance no doubt.

    No reason for this on the CLS chassis at least; 3" downpipes still had room to spare in test fitting:

    As promised, some pics to show how thin the factory downpipes get:

    Car is due back tomorrow; chassis rail replaced. Meanwhile I tacked up some 3 inch downpipes:

    Never had a high k's M156 motored car, so hasn't been a concern. As you say, plenty of 10 year old, circa 100,00k M156 based cars out there for relatively cheap. Headbolt change isn't a big deal, but you also have to watch for cam/lifter wear. As for depreciation, it's how most of us on this forum get to drive Euro's
