    My plans are to drive it. I am not going nearly as extreme with this one. This is going to be the road course toy. LT's, intake, tune, springs, wheels, wider rubber, roll bar, euro spec oem seats, and ripping out the lame ass Pano roof and going with a CF roof like on my CLK.

    Car was ordered with every option(including rear-seat delete) with the exception of the matte black wheels. Wheels are coming off so why waste $1000 on painted wheels that are going to sit in a pile with the rest of my CLK stuff I removed.

    That's what I was hoping you'd say. With those bolt on's it'll be a track beast man. You should look into carbon ceramic rotors that would be a sick upgrade. Which headers are you gonna go with and who is gonna do the work on it ?

    The aero package on it looks pretty damn sick I have to say.

    Weistec might build me some headers, in talks with them right now, otherwise I am considering the MBH LT's or the American Racing Headers. I am ABSOLUTELY NOT shipping this car to the great black hole that is CALIFORNIA. I am most likely going to have FMU build me the roll bar, fab up the back half of the exhaust and a few other things. Not sure who I am going to trust with the CF roof conversion since it is going to be a little more tricky than the CLK since this one has the Pano and will need some structural cross mebers added for support. There is a local shop here in chicago that does a lot of Porsche work and I have seen a few of their CF roofs and they look OEM so I might give them a shot. To be honest I am going to drive it stock for a little while and just enjoy it, I don't want to deal with any downtime mid-summer which is prime driving season for us midwesterners.

    Becasue every $#@!ing tuner out there takes 3 times longer to finish a project than it should take. I have had FMU do work on my Ford Raptor and they got it done on time, two of my buddies have had work done on their BMWs by FMU and guess what? Both were on time and one was a big project. By dealing with a shop here in Chicago I can drop in unannounced to check on progress. After the whole evosport thing I have been cautious and even this last round of mods at Weistec took much longer than anticipated. Don't get me wrong, Ihave no issues with Weistec if I lived in Cali this car would be going to them but since the work I am getting done is basically bolt-on stuff there is no reason to ship it 2000 miles away. If I decide to do anything else or put a blower on it I might send it back to Weistec. Even the guys I shipped my Ford Raptor to out in Santa Ana for some MAJOR mods can't seem to get $#@! done on time...everyone in cali is too laid back to meet deadlines I'm affraid.

    Congratulation Jim. Nice color. Enjoy it in good health. Are you in Chicago?

    There was a white BS in Mercedes Benz Chicago two days ago. Is this it?

    Well FMU has done some good work but the level of what they do and what Weistec does are night and day.

    Ya, deadlines pass but the most important thing is the car getting done right.

    Like I said I am not knocking Wiestec in any way, they are awesome, if I lived in cali the car would be going to weistec but the mods for the new car are basically simple bolt on mods that I am more than confident FMU can handle, and FMU has one of the best welders I have ever seen in my life so I am confident they can design and build me a beautiful roll bar/cage.

    No I ordered this one from MB of Naperville which is just outside Chicago. The one at Fletcher in Chicago does not have the aero package.

    They're welding is definitely impressive.

    Those American racing headers are really nice and priced very well. I'm going to buy a set soon. FMU does some VERY nice work and I'm sure they can build you a sick cage. And if you are worried about structural rigity removing the pano roof, just have FMU incorporate the cage into the roof structure - that would be very trick as well as functional and MUCH safer especially if you are gonna be running this on road courses.

    But I agree - drive the $#@! out of it then start the build when the weather gets bad. But headers and a tune is a one day job and you will get the most out of just those 2 mods. Congrats again. Click here to enlarge

    now that's the way a C63 BS should have come from the factory ( aero and track package ) .

    congrats on the new monster !

    You should start a separate thread detailing your car up to this point. I know the work that FMU did on it was amazing. What are your plans for it now ?
