    So I ordered a rental Voltage transformer from v12icpack.com for 50$ so I'll start there. I changed the oil filter and abc filter, but I probably going have to quite of bit inspection and maintenance

  6. Add a Subwoofer after bose oem amp then aftermarket amp to bypass Fiber optic

    R230 SL-Class
    so what i end up doing was, using the audio cables to the oem sub and running those to a 1000w aftermarket amp and from there to a aftermarket 12in sub which it sounds better then the stock system but doesn't sound like a 1000w system (when amp turned up, its distorted) so im going to tinker...
  7. C8 Corvette opinion

    R230 SL-Class
    I dont know about that, TT RS can't possibly be compared to performance vettes, highend sl's, i know they quick to 60mph (because AWD) but thats it, after that they out of breath and even basic v8 mustangs and camaros will be pulling them in, I use to like them but now i see them as a more fun...
  8. Will my car survive a 3000mile trip in the desert 04 sl600

    R230 SL-Class
    Did you use all oem hoses or regular universal coolant hoses, also I'm not sure if I asked you this already but did you do all the performance mods yourself or previous owner, (like do send in your ecu to renntech and tell them what physical mods you done to the car or a flash tune) or had the...

  10. Add a Subwoofer after bose oem amp then aftermarket amp to bypass Fiber optic

    R230 SL-Class

  11. AC Blockage, Condensor & Expansion vavle replacement, probably DIY

    R230 SL-Class
    I took my sl600 to a tune up shop (percision tune auto care), and was told and I quote "System had 0.04LBs in system, would not take full charge, system has excessive pressure which indicates blockage in the system, compressor did not engage. Starting point would be condensor and expansion...
  12. C8 Corvette opinion

    R230 SL-Class
    If i brought a corvette the last thing i would be thinking is interior quality, im looking for a big growly v8 and tire screeching performance, And everything else is just a plus. But thats probably what ever young guy looks for, like before i didn't think ac was a issue for first sports car...

  14. C8 Corvette opinion

    R230 SL-Class
    I think the only thing interesting about the c8 is a mid engine corvette leaves a 70yr tradition and those performance numbers, 0-60 under 3 secs like wtf and apparently under 500hp.
