    C350CDi Sport estate 2010
    So after much deliberation I've swapped my C220 CDI for the C350 CDI estate. This will be a long termer, 3 yrs at least so keen to do the Brabus upgrade early otherwise I'll be 3 yrs down the line like with the 220 and still not one it!

    I'm intersted if you have a the kit for the C350, Sept 2010 registered please.

    regards, Paul

    Brabus D6 upgrade

    I bought my first M-B in Oct 2009, a 320CDI Sport, estate that was 20 months old & was already fitted with the D6 III upgrade, I like it! But since I'd not driven it prior to the fitting I cannot compare performance or fuel consumption improvements; enough to say it's plenty quick enough for me & returns very good mpg, especially after my previous V8 Jaguar XJR!!!
    I discovered that one of the Brabus badges was damaged, the one fitted to the lower front offside wing, "Powered by Brabus", & obtaining a replacement was no simple task. Nothing available that I could find on the Brabus website so I went to the M-B dealer in Basingstoke, Tony Purslow. They did eventually manage to obtain a pair of these badges but only after supplying certain vehicle details to confirm from their database that this car had actually been fitted with the D6 unit, I guess. So, it's only those wing badges that visually guarantee the vehicle has had the upgrade. The tailgate/ bootlid badge, (BRABUS), can be bought by anyone as it is available at the Brabus online shop.
    :D

    Brabus D6, Insurance

    I'm suprised at the additional insurance premium you were required to pay Direct Line, also the very high X/S. I contacted my broker, (IAM Surety), prior to buying my M-B that already had the D6 unit fitted. All the underwriter wanted to know was had the brakes been upgraded to cope with the additional power. I managed to get a confirmation from Brabus technical that the brakes were more than capable of handling the extra bhp & that satisfied them, the insurer is "KGM Motor Policies at Lloyd's".
    Last year I paid just £259, (restricted mileage of 5,000 per annum no doubt helps), it's due for renewal this month.

    My replacement pair cost £40 from Brabus via Tony Purslow M-B.

    Just 1 little Question, and its perhaps one for you to think about in the future.
    Brabus will only fit them to cars unders 2 years and 20,000 miles, why ?, will this have any detrimental effect to your engine after that period ?, if not, why won't they fit it to older / cars with more miles.

    Its something I had been thinking about, but I understand yohttp://www.superchips.co.uk/search?make=22&fueltype=2&model=82&variant=237u can also get pretty same results from the likes of Superchips (see link) for roughly 1/3 of the cost.:shock:

    Brabus will only warranty cars that are under 2 years and 20,000 miles, they will still fit them.

    I would not use Superchips, I just don't like them, tweaked rolling road figures, they replace your standard map instead of modifying it, so leaves a trail that shouts 'I've been tampered with!' and try and wriggle out of claims and even the 7 day trial period return.

    There are plenty of decent tuners out there, if you want to go remap route.

    If your car is not in warranty buy a D6 or whatever it is on the C320cdi used off ebay.
    You are paying around £800 buying it from Mercedes for the warranty, and if out of warranty then no point.

    PM me your email and I will forward his details on to you.

    He may have one for a C320cdi, I know he did a few weeks back.

    Which is different to the PM inbox - I fell foul of this when I was new to the forum.

    I didn't apply mine either - prefer the "standard" look- no point in advertising you might like a bit of "spirited driving" now and again !

    Had a bit of fun yesterday evening with a 320 CDI E Class when he pulled up alongside me. I could imagine him wondering why he wasn't able to stay with me. Obviously, obeying speed limits at all times.:)

    Quick update.

    Car still feels awesome- and, whether it's my imagination or not, definitely feels smoother than before the chip was fitted.

    As far as fuel consumption is concerned, on my daily commute and on the basis that I drive in exactly the way I did before the chip was installed, the trip computer is showing about 4/5 MPG improvement. I have read somewhere that replacement chips can cause the trip computer to report incorrect consumption. Not too worried either way.

    Co-incidentally, my wife and I are off to Gerrmany on Monday for a driving holiday. Part of the trip is a visit to the Brabus factory at Bottrop. Really looking forward to it - not sure my wife is though ! ;)
