Engine upgrade after 3 years and/or 60K kms?
I went to the Brabus workshop in Bottrop, Germany this morning to detail some work in my interior (dash and door trim in leather) and asked them if they had any engine upgrades for my 2012-55. In short: no. Why? they feel that an engine that is over 3 years old or has done over 60K kms has 'set' to much to accept an upgrade AND have them guarantee the work for three years.
Considering they know what they are talking about in upgrading engines, one has to wonder about the members on this list installing compressors on the R171-55 (at least 8 year old) or having an ECU upgrade and replace headers other parts of the exhaust. Are we the ignorant bunch and taking a big chance here?
