    Renntech is basically the only real tuner in the US for Mercedes, with a real building (which they own), real people working there (about 20 or so), real engineers, machineshop, fabricators......
    The real player that does his homework knows this. The real enthusiast wouldn't consider sending a Mercedes (or buy products) to a one man operation somewhere,with a reputation build and hyped in the internet world. It's only a matter of time when they run out of talent and resources and it happens usually sooner then later.
    So there you have it.

    I think both Brabus and Kleemann are real tuners in the US for Mercedes (and both have a dedicated US operation/staff/building), unless you mean "based out of" since Renntech is HQ'd in the U.S., and the others are not.

    He clearly was only referring to MHP there.

    AMG4V doesn't appear to be claiming that MHP (solely) isn't a "real" tuner in the US for Mercedes - he's claiming that Renntech "basically" is the only "real" one.

    Yes, his comment is clearly putting down Andy/MHP, but (rightly or wrongly) it's also putting down the OE's, Eurocharged's, Vtech's, Weistec's, etc. of the Mercedes tuning scene in the States. I don't know how anyone could read it any different... if he was only talking about MHP, he would have to phrase his comments completely differently.

    Because the tuners you mentioned have a building and engineers. They are not internet forum creations.

    Brabus and Kleemann are both not US based to be fair which was his point.

    You are both right, initially it was directed more at mhp and other internet/forum creations. However, thanks for reminding me, it counts for the other ones as well.

    Brabus and Kleman both have sales and installation outlets/ representation here but no tuning, custom work, R&D going on here. As a matter of fact, kleman typically doesnt do their own developments and tuning anyway.

    he is claiming 253 ft/lbs gain for a tune only,at the wheels.that's over 50%.even if he was quoting the V12 results,aren't the numbers still a little inflated?

    There is little credibility there unfortunately.
