New member~I'm lost here! Help Please?!

Hey guys,

I just bought a CLK430 & am super excited about the change. It is definitely different from my Toyota addiction. I just sold my Lexus GS300 & am getting mass amounts of grief about doing so, as the tuning world LOVES that car. I'm not unhappy though as close to 300hp & 290ib.tq. definitely is a rush. This is a new experience for me as this is my 1st V8 as well. I am a little dissapointed on how there aren't many performance upgrades for this car. It is already fast but there isn't much you can do without the car itself rejecting it I think, as these all seem quite temperamental. I have opted on a cold air intake, which NOBODY I have found, has done this...why? I don't know... Lastly, maybe larger pipes? Or a catback. Can't run straight pipes I believe, as it will make this smart car think theres something wrong. Making it do everything short of yell at me, open the door, & throw me out! lol. Well, I mainly got on here to see if anyone has done ANY fabrication in regards to the intake and/or other performance upgrades/mods. Thanks
