CL500 / 02/ 5.0
Good Morning All, i am the very proud owner of a 2002 CL500. Had the car for about 18 months and have recently been wondering if the exhaust can be upgraded, as i don't seem to be getting much "burble" from the V8 engine, even when i put the foot down! I am near Bristol. Is there a standard off the shelf product available, or any custom shops people could recommend in my area?

Thanks

Any Powerflow exhaust specialist should be able to sort you out with a custom build.

If you are near Clevedon , Steve at Avantgarde Mercedes (Indy) would know all things local about all things MB .
If this advice works for you , I require payment in the form of a picture of the car in the sun with the roof down ! I've just spent a pleasant half hour looking at SL500's on Autotrader .

Welcome, as LK says there is Powerflow in Bath, you may want to start with a resonator delete which will release the sound, they should be able to do it in a sympathetic way- there are deletes and deletes, some can create a real drone which could spoil the Mercedes CL wafting ambience....
