Brabus mods for SLK250

Hello. I was curious if anybody has done any performance modifications to their SLK250 via Brabus. Their US office is nearby and I have been considering the following: http://www.brabus.com/en/deliver.php...a%20CGI.EN.pdf

So has anyone done this and what is the cost in the US?
Did some searches and I can find the HP/TQ increase, but no cost or no reports on someone who did this.

Exclamation

Hi I fitted the racechip to my 250 CDI, the top mechanic at my MB dealer also has one installed in his merc, he says they are virtually the same as the brabus but 10% of the cost.

Evidently getting greater performance from a diesel is easier.

My car immediately seemd faster, much faster, and smoother... I have no fancy dyno results etc but all I can say is it works for me.

And better fuel,economy......don't understand why but again a noticeable improvement

Regards

Rob
