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

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

Eeeek, certainly works. But not optimal. 

Look like nice quality pipes though.

Just wondering the pipes look thin but also deep how does the area, flow rate, creating back pressure if applicable of these compare with the 3" pipes fitted. Surely Mercedes had a reason for making them that way.

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

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

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

Its funny how much the AMG kit improves the look of these. The normal poverty model CLS is so ugly.

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.
