I want to lower the car a bit and don't know which pad size I have to get. Anyone know how thin the stock pads are ? TIA. -)

Not the spring pads the different springs?

Went to a AMG specialist (not related to MB or the real AMG), they were selling a set of European AMG springs for about US$800 which lowers the car half an inch.

Brabus Suspension

Spoke to Brabus today at the LA Autoshow. Springs and shocks installed for $2000. The rep said that AMG is too conservative still with the set up. Supposedly not a compromise in ride but an improvement in handling. The springs are supposedly progressive by the diameter of the spring not the winding of the coil. About an inch loss in height also. I might try this out in the future.<p>
