It is my 1st benz and I have no resources for mercedes aftermarket parts. want to get clear or smoked lights for sure and possibly some performance (intake, exhaust, chip). what are some good retailers/stores to buy from?
Performance, you have lots of options and really depends on your budget and gains you want. For tighter budget, ECU (Powerchip, Singh, MKB, VRP) and exhaust (Meisterschaft, Remus, Brabus, Carlsson, Wald, Lorinser) will give you a slight bump, or sprintbooster for a more responsive feel. For bigger budget, you can get the Kleeman K2 package coming out (ECU, Headers, Kompressor). Depending on where you are, I can recommend some shops.
