^ "This crowd" being predominantly Mercedes owners, will go to established firms like Brabus or Lorinser, or say fuck that aftermarket shit and stick with AMG, the latter of which has a pedigree the likes of which you can't just show up with a wad of money and buy.
I'd venture to say that most Mercedes people fall into one of two groups. One half isn't interested in any of this tuning crap. The other half knows that cars are built to a spec, and if you increase performance in one area, you need to ensure the other areas can handle it...these folks will almost universally defer to a company who approaches performance from a holistic standpoint instead of nickel-and-dime'ing their way to a fast car. Alternately, they order a kit on-line and do it themselves, opting to take all the risk. Where does a middle man fit into this?
Again, there are literally hundreds of reasons the model you've described would result in the evaporation of a ton of cash...I don't think you need us to tell you that.
