    Would be a shame to see it go

    Thanks! I appreciate that.

    I’m firm on my price so unless I get what I want for it the car stays.
    The fact I’ve been considering selling the Cobra just to keep it tells you how much I enjoy driving it myself.

    I feel the car is 85% complete from what I originally planned so I’m just going to proceed with it.
    Trany service is next up.

    Not exactly sure what I’m looking at here with the trans pan and filter removed but I’m glad the mess was on their garage floor and not mine.
    Mechanic said the fluid appeared to have been changed before and the magnets inside were metal free which was good.
    Trans fluid removed/installed is a greenish/grey colour which I found strange cause I’ve only seen red before.

    More importantly ALL mechanical work is now complete!
    Now on to the cosmetic stuff.

    Wife and I recently took the C63 to Niagara for the weekend and it managed a 11.1L for gas mileage which I thought was decent for it.
    We both really enjoyed the drive...so much in fact she had a change of heart and it's no longer for sale which makes me happy.
    The car was very close to being sold on a couple of occasions but luckily no deposit was ever given.

    It was kind of funny hearing her get compliments on the car when we were together on the trip and her surprise and reaction to them just not being use to that kinda thing.
    It's not uncommon to see a lot of Mercedes on the road however not many sound like this one that's for sure and from what I've read the new C63 is changing bigtime.
    Gone is the V8 4L bi-turbo.

    The new C63 is rumoured to be the first AMG to gain a new hybrid electrified turbo 2-litre M139 four-cylinder with a 201 HP electric motor on the rear axle.
    This endows Mercedes-AMG’s new 9spd MCT drivetrain with a total of 670HP/555TQ apparently.
    Oh how things are changing and quickly it seems.


    Chrome delete for mine coming soon.

    That car is a true German Cruiser. Enjoy it. Like you mentioned, the new C63 has lost its soul so this one is a keeper.

    Wrap completed and happy with the results.
    I decided on the “507” front grill/emblem look for it to emphasize the logo VS just blacking it out.







    Next up is paint correction/ceramic coating and finally install the new emblems.
