Distance/Space: Top of Muffler to Bottom of Bumper?

I have noticed, that the distance from the top of my dual AMG tailpipes to the<br>
underside of my rear bumper is about 1/2 inch. <br>
<br>
Also, I noticed other CLK55s at the MB dealership, which have a distance of 1 1/2<br>
inches, some 1' and others are like mine: 1/2 inch (12 mm) only. <br>
<br>
1/2' space between the bumper & rear bumper makes polishing the shiny tailpipe<br>
difficult. <br>
<br>
WAHT IS THE CORRECT SPACE? <br>
<br>
1/2'? 1'? or 1 1/2'? <br>
<br>
tnx <br>
<br>

karl k.. I have a 2002 CLK55 and the spaceing on mine is 1/2 inch. I just put a soft towel around it and buff it like a shoe. But you are right it is very close. Oh by the way I am on the East Coast like you are.

I have seen some with a larger distance between tailpipe and car body. <br> <br> Perhaps those are the 2001 models. It is comforting to know that your 2002 has the same narrow space. I am in Miami Beach; Autohaus pompano is my MB dealer. They are great!<br> <br> Tnx GB for the response.<br> <br> Karl
