Post 2009 E350 4MATIC AMG

Hello All-

I am a newbie to the forum and glad to be here. I just picked up a 2009 E350 4Matic with the factory AMG kit. They did incredible things to the 2009 and more people than you'd imagine actually think its an E63 (if only for a second). Obe of the best upgrades for the 2009 is the upgraded COMAND system, even a little more featured than my 2007 S550. There are not very many differences in the look from real AMG. From what I can tell,it's the quad pipes (i have 2 "AMG" pipes with great sound), the slits on the AMG bumpers (rest of the body looks identical), "AMG" seats, "AMG" written on gauges (sport package guages are pretty hot though)...and of course the engine!

But really...the car looks great. I inadvertently ordered the car without xenons so I am trying to upgrade on my own with a digital HID conversion kit @ 8000k. Luckily, on the 2009's the headlights look exactly like the bi-xenons, their just halogens in there. I'll let you know how it goes, I am afraid of errors (and voiding warranty).

I would also like to upgrade my front parking/standing lights. the size is listed as W5W but if I had gotten the factory bi-xenons, it would have been LED. Is there a plug in option for these lights to upgrade to a more OEM look? Links would be appreciated.

So far I have ordered:

HID conversion kit (8000k)
AMG one piece rear spoiler
AMG illuminated door sills (4x)
"AMG" rear license plate (chrome)
AMG full pedal set
Black metal front plate frame (i live in NJ, front plate is mandatory and the dealer literally drilled 6 holes directly into the AMG bumper for the front license plate bracket..GRRRRRRRR)
Chrome door lock pins
Completely debadged


Thinking about:

Tints (also illegal in NJ)

DVD in-motion (I cant find anyone who can reprogram the DVD player in the 2009 COMAND system to work while in motion...suggestions???)

Chrome headlight trim / behind door handles / mirrors
I'm afraid this will look cheezy...does anyone have pics, perhaps on a black w211. Opinion?

Also thinking about an "AMG" shift knob. All i can find online is a cheap looking knob, doesnt look like OEM to me. Any suggestions?

THANKS!!!
