Thanks Alroumi, I appreciate the reply, research and data. I can't recall if the "2nd" option they offered was a Kleeman, but the AMG tech at my dealership told me he would go for the RennTech.
I am still left with that basic question, is it worth it. By that I mean, time without the car, having it ripped apart, cost and reward. In other words, will I even see the difference in performance.
AGain, my dealership's AMG tech told me if it were him, he would wait until I had the car for 6 months or so and then purchase the upgrade. He said that way, I would be more apt to feel the difference. HE claimed many people get it done right off the show room floor nad never really know what they purchased.
The money isn't really as much of an issue as having a new car taken apart and put back together again. I realized these guys are trained in Germany, at least my tech claims so, but it's downright scary with a $140K vehicle.
Of course my wife simply says, Why do you need to go 184mph, isn't 160mph fast enough! LOL...women never understand. At least she understood well enough to send me to Skip Barber Racing school for my birthday! Laguna Seca rocks!
Anyway, I sure would like to get some feedback from someone who has done this, with any AMG vehicle.
