I like Brabus

If I had the cash I'd have

This for my roadster
Mercedes-Benz Brabus SV12 S Biturbo Roadster - RSportsCars.com

and this for my sedan
Mercedes-Benz Brabus CLS V12 S - RSportsCars.com

How can you go wrong when you have an MB as the base product!

The Kleemann, Carlsson stuff also looks good on modern MB's, but I love the old Lorinser wheels on my 420SEL and I'm still looking for a body kit to suit.

For the specifics I think it comes down to your own taste. These companies have been around for a while and seem to have no quality issues.

Waaaay out of my budget but they are a good tuning firm, in business in Germany well over 20 years, and have a very good reputation. I saw a 200l S class Brabus K5, the Komperessor 5.0 conversion, it looked awesome. Kleeman Carlsson and AMG are good tuners too!

when I have the cash I'll definitely look at Brabus first

Did spend about $100 bidding for K8 model at Cesar Palace during holidays.
That's about my limit I would spend in my present financial situation.
They always vanish in my rear-view mirror just like Ferraris and Corvettes.
