Genuine Parts

Hey Gang! In need of a new bumper, diffuser and maybe exhaust tip. Where’s the best place to get these parts from or is it the main stealers? Just weighing up claiming on the Mrs’ insurance or trying to handle privately. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190402/f3a3d708a0a9cfe2ed1f6e8dce7ba970.jpg

Re: Gear box

Got mine back, for the second time last Thursday. Only to take it back again 15 minutes later as the AMG “Specialist” didn’t know how much coolant to put in it 🤨 https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190219/f238aa95c03ff7e44a3f96744bfee206.jpg All seems well!

Re: Tyre talk...

In for its first MOT today. Found that both front tyres have cracked on the inside wall.
These are Michelin’s fitted only 14 months ago. 10k miles. Guess I’ll try for a warranty on these. Ridiculous.

Re: gearbox re-call

Re: Water Meth

Curious as I’ve run Meth in the past on my old car. Are you tuning for it? Also what kit did you lump for?

You should be able to just tap into the OEM pipe but what location are you thinking of?
