    The one slight advantage to the C over the E is it's 200kg / 31 stone lighter.

    I wouldn't spend all that on this car, a 63AMG maybe though ;-)

    Mass increase negligible, but wetted area increase will impact the drag coefficient by .01-.02 at a guess. One could get more effect by carting a small toolbox around in the trunk. :) ;)

    Yes. It must include a Leatherman which is not an illegal knife, too. At least nineteen hundredweight of tools.

    Hi Anyweb, sorry for the extremely late reply!! (not posted on here for ages)
    You're right the link that I used has definitely gone, although the below seems to be the same thing (45mm diam)

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Mercedes...hrome-Metal-/232596478019?hash=item3627d49843

    The one I bought hasn't stood the test of time too well, the central chrome and writing has changed to gold lol. although to be fair, I've not replaced it as my car is black and it actually looks alright strangely. o_O

    On another note, got a price from Celtic Tuning for ECU remap, which I'm considering.... it's pretty reasonable although of course it will be a standard map as opposed to bespoke. Think I must have read all the threads on here about remapping, I just can't seem to get myself over the line and get it ordered. Would prefer a bespoke map, however they are at least double the price having spoken with both GAD and MSL. I had a previous Leon Cupra CDI mapped before and it was well worth the money, however that was on a dyno. Extra £40 on my insurance if I get it done, which I thought was pretty fair tbh.

    Anyone got any thoughts / can shove me over the line ?? :)

    Cheers
    Kris

    Definite NO to double badging, however I don't really like the grille either, I would prefer the traditional grille on that one :rolleyes:

    Ive looked for a standard looking grill in black like i have on my w211 but have only managed to find a carbon fiber one for £365, i like the flat bage with no badge on the grill lol
