Bump4life's New Benz **Updated 5/13/15. lowered and ipad dash installed!**


Recommended Posts

Yes, new benz, new build. It looks very similiar to my old one (same body style, but it has a facelift so its got a body kit and such, lip on rear hatch.) with updates under the hood (v6 m112 engine, newer engine in mercedes up to 2006 ish) and also all the amenities, aka, heated seats, power everything, auto climate, etc.

Best part is I stole it from a stealership :) and millage is sitting under 70k in excellent condition. couldnt ask for more. guy who had it before me was a classical musician who took it into the dealer every time the smallest noise was made to get it fixed. the car has been dealer maintained and you can tell.

and I already know how to fix pretty much everything on the car so mechanical work is cheap for me to do just buying parts.

My first goal with this car was to make it look good. tints wheels grill color match. then ill make it loud.

Not doing what I did before and throwing money into it to get louder, thats what i have the old benz for :), trying to keep budget out the door 1500 or under :) yes I will still have nice components though, and yes it will get loud. meter loud? maybe, but i want this thing to hit from 20s to 60. how do you do that? 6th order....



this will be slow but will have pictures soon.



work already done:
-20% 3m color stable tint all around. love in the summer how it kept me cool, its a must for black cars. car has stock windshield tint that really came out after adding tint.
-new black/chrome accent grill from s class and e class
-projector headlights
-color matched moldings (black now from ugly gray)
-C63 18" AMG wheels staggered, 8.5 inch wide front, 9.5 inch wide rear wheels
-Michellin Pilot Sport A/s 3 tires, 225/40 zr 18 front, 255/35 zr 18 rear stretched on perfectly.
- lower springs and struts in spring?
-HIDs 5k 55W kits soon?


engine work:

tune up
-all 12 spark plugs (yes 12 plugs on a v6, 2 per cylinder)
-oil and filter change full synthetic
-coolant flush and change
-radiator change (these cars radiators are notorious for leaking after 70-100k)
-new pinion and axle seals on differential and new differential oil
-new air filter cabin air filter
-transmission oil and filter replaced
-clean Mass air flow sensor
-cleaned out the intake all the way up to the valve cover
-new belt tensioner and belt and idle pulley
-new 240A HOT alt made by me? spring?




Plans are 1 10 in a 6th order firing through ski hole. on maybe 4k-5k eventually.

I already have a Pioneer 80Prs in integrated with the stock bose system and I must say it sounds great! It lacked bass though. midbass, check, but nothing below 60.

so i added some stuff in :) SOTM winnings were nice :)


stay tuned.
