Mercedes tuners, your opinions?

Lorinser, Kleemann, Brabus, Carlsson, RENNtech, AMG(?)

Who's better? Why did AMG prevail to such a high level among others, is it their history in racing? Are others just as good? I also really like lorinser, kleemann, and brabus, perhaps more than AMG. What are your thoughts on tuners of mercedes-benz???

None of them are really better than the other. It really depends on what kind of tuning you want done.

AMG became Mercedes's in house tuner (subsidiary) in 1999.

yea, I know plenty about AMG, as I'm sure a lot of people do. But what are some of the differences among these?

Carlsson and Lorinser are more about aesthetics mods with their body kits and suspension bits. They might do performance tuning, but don't put a lot of emphasis on it, or it's not as good as the others.

Kleemann, Brabus, and Renntech put a whole of their effort on performance tuning. Brabus especially, with their record setting MBs.

This is not a good direct answer to your question, but I would rather have an AMG because you can get an MB factory-backed warranty with those; of course as a new car but also as a certified pre-owned (CPO), provided you can find a dealer willing to certify it.
