Mechanics and engine petrol heads prepare to start laughing!!!!
I've posted previously that I want to act various mods to the car to the left, a 2010 petrol 171 200 Kompressor. I had an amazing telephone conversation with a MB distributor that was willing to add 3rd party items to the car with the obvious labour cost. I thought that MB were pretty strict about 3rd party items being 'handled' by their staff, not so.
So here's the question...one of the mods being considered was the addition of the following: Eibach, Bilstein or H&R suspension kits with lowering links.
Question 1: Do I stick to the package that has been included on the car which is the sports package which has 'apparently' had the car height lowered by 10mm. Even the car sometimes looks like a 4 X 4? Is that kit able to be lowered by a further 2-5 mms?
Apparently MB don't do an uprated suspension kit. (tell me otherwise if you know differently).
Question 2: If a third party kit is added, will consideration be needed for the 'sports' gearing or is that totally separate?
Question 3: I'm considering adding a K&N High flow air filter E-2011, good idea or bad idea for the SLK. We have added air filters on older cars and they have been tested and been found to add BHP (not a lot but some).
Right you can stop laughing now
