Default 2017 AMG C63S Coupe

Many of you know me and that I recently sold my '05 STi which I owned for nearly 10 years. It was a great car and I had a ton of fun building it into my dream, but it was time to upgrade. I picked up a C63S coupe about a month back and I figured I'd start a journal here. I plan to modify and track this car as well, though I won't be building the motor or swapping turbos. Probably just a tune and some wheels/tires. Stock tires are 285 PSS in the rear which is wayyyyy too small. The stock exhaust is already crazy loud and sounds great, and I don't think the platform can realistically tame more than what these engines put out tuned (600+hp/650+tq). More pics/videos to come

Thanks. I just moved here from Denver in July. Definitely has pros and cons, but I'm early in my career in tech and this is the place to be if you want to make big moves. Otherwise I probably would have stayed in Colorado. Are you in tech?

Some more pics





I'm planning to do an Akrapovic catback and tune in January. Should make in the 540whp/wtq range. Will do wider, stickier tires at the same time. Might also replace the front grill cross/emblem with a carbon fiber version.
