Hey guys,

I just picked up my Black 05 C55 with 22K miles on it. It is in great condition, but I want to make a few external, internal and mechanical changes.

1. I want to get a grill like they have on the CLK... Any suggestions on where I can pick one up? Also the tail lights on mine are blacked out and I am already gettting crap from cops. Where can I pick up a good set?

I know there is the OEM versions, but are there any good aftermarket shops? EBay?

2. I would like to get my Nav system up to date. Do I have to buy each year and load them one by one to get fully updated, or can I just buy the newest DVD and be good to go?

3. While the power is solid, I would like to add a little more. I know there are a few ECU upgrade options out there... But which one is the best? What other options are there?

I appreciate your paitience with my questions.:bowdown:

Thanks for all your help.
~Chad

Chad congrats on the car. I just bought one a couple months ago. it had 23k miles. I too would like a little more horsepower. Re-flashing the ECU appears to be the best bang for the buck. I'll be watching this thread if anyone can give some ideas on who we should be talking to.

Check out Ebay for the grill and the taillights.... I got most of my stuff for my car off of Ebay... Just look carefully at some of the grills on there because a lot are crap..

I have begun down the path of modding my C55...

I contacted Jerry at LET Motorsports and am going with an ECU flash and K&N Filters from them. Jerry is a great guy and I am really looking forward to working with them again in the near future.

I also picked up an AMG Sprintbooster, CLK W209 Grille and LED Tails from EBAY. I will be sure to post comments and Pictures once I have it all installed.

The waiting is going to be tough....:thumbsup:
