Member with 2007 C350 Estate G7Tr.

Hello from Germany,

since a few weeks, I own a C 350 Estate built in 2007

I came to this forum by internet, because many threads about sound improvement with airbox and other changes lead to this forum.

I didn't want to change anything at the car, and it felt fast enough for a few days - now changes are to be done :-)

ECU will get a reprog in a few days(our fuel has up to 102 oktan here, so lets see what the changes will do to the car) - here in Germany 250 km/h isn't fast enough for me :-) - the limiter will be taken off and the car should reach a v-max of 270 km/h then.

K&Ns are already fittet to the airbox; the airbox is smoothened at the inside - car goes very well for an estate with that already!! (0-100 km/h in 6.1 sec and 100-200 km/h in 14 sec. - (6.5 sec. is claimed by MB))

so, should be enough for the beginning - hope my english is good enough to be understood.

Greets from North Germany

Welcome from Blighty....

I lived in Hamburg for the first half of 2009. You're right 250km/h is not enough
