Coilovers fitted 55 AMG

Hi all,

Just a quick update.... I've had fitted a full-blown H+R kit to my 55. I must say, it's an awesome bit of kit! Fully tested all the way to Germany and back just a couple of weeks ago!

It's not a firm ride, but a lot more 'controllable'. It takes only minutes to adjust the ride height... but you need ramps without a doubt!

Few pics below...

I have kept the old suspension, and there is nothing wrong with it - if anyone is after any spares or the entire set up then let me know.

Andrew

Looks great! I also like the blacked out badges. Did you have them painted?

Yellow calipers looks stunning on the red car.

How do you get on with speed bumps?

Hi chaps,

You can buy the logos of eBay. I went for gloss black to match other gloss parts on the car. You can get them on the uk site, not sure if you can elsewhere. I then simply sprayed the front logo to match. Be prepared to take the old glue off... It takes time.

In terms of speed humps. That's a tricky one. The 55 is a second car to me, so not used daily..... I therefore only take it out on special occasions I guess. It has caught once or twice on car parks. Everyday use would be a pain I'm sure!

Cheers

Andrew
