That car is worth more than all the houses on that street combined.
I was driving random roads slowly trying to figure out how to use the front lift and the different mangneride settings
Randomly decided to drive the C5 to work today. That H/C/I ls6 sound will never disappoint
LS is gold. Just unfortunate GM interiors from the 2000s look like shit (no offense, and the Vette ones aren't as bad as some).
Sorta at a (very expensive) resolution with all this:
-One (LH) Arnott bag seems fine.
-Other (RH) blew twice despite being properly installed. Indy won't let you bring parts, so he bought Bilstein bag. It's fine, just riiiiiich. I can get the 2nd Arnott bag back for a refund from RA.
-About a year ago, I put in a new Arnott valve block. It's already failed. They won't refund, just replace, so CS rep told me to take it and resell.
-Front SAM died, $1200 installed.
I'm in the hole $3500 on the Benz so far this year. Otherwise super reliable car, but good lord.
no offense taken…it’s pretty bad
Interior in the c8 is much nicer than I expected. Just got in floor mats as the natural tan carpet mats that came with would get destroyed quickly. Looking to dress up the engine bay now. Looking for lighting (just a normal light nothing wild), magneride covers, and to cover be space on the side of the motor. Hopefully they’ll have time to ppf and ceramic coat it all next week. Rides insanely good on softest setting around town with the magneride
People online aren’t lying about the z51 brake dust being a problem. Have washed the wheels three times and it just passed 200 miles. Stopped by my grandmother’s as she wanted to see it and she said it looks expensive…must have been 50k lol.
Do they not have carbon ceramic pads?
They do. I don’t need them. Haven’t been able to get ceramic done yet but that will make it easier to keep the wheels clean
Color match your calipers
I like keeping mostly factory stuff other than wheels in the future. I had red calipers originally but changed to black when allocation came up. Changed exhaust tips to black as well. There isn’t an orange caliper option from factory and the black works fine with the other black accents. It has orange seatbelts.
You can powder coat them pretty easily
Finally dropped the c8 this morning for ppf, ceramic, and light window tint. Passed 500 miles and had the first service recently which was free and allowed the motor to reach redline. Revs were limited electronically during first 500 but still haven’t gotten on it
c/p from car buying thread
Anyone sold a car lately personally? I have three times before, but much lower-line vehicles. This time, selling my 2011 Mercedes wagon.
It's high mileage (150k) but just had the entire air suspension done, regular maintenance done, has new front brakes, AMG package, and has every option you could get that year aside from parking sensors, and distronic cruise. May list at $14k, want to get $12k.
Just got it detailed, and am doing some other minor work. (The detail wasn't as good as I'd have liked, so I may re-do if it doesn't sell quickly.) Cosmetically, it's really good aside from the front diffuser being scraped (I have touch up paint) and two small door dings. Mechanically good, electronics need a little work (there's a headrest ABS sensor that throws a warning, but dealer/mechanic confirmed the airbags will all still work, etc., and it may need a new adaptive headlight (I am including a controller).
A couple people suggested Cars & Bids since it's a really nice, unique spec, and the car is great. I'm not eager for that since I don't want to take 2000 pictures of it. Any thoughts? I'm not necessarily in a rush, but the prices to fix things now that I can't do are eyewatering, so I'm planning on cutting it loose.
