Hi all,

Just got my car back from MB after having the d3 brabus chip installed.

Will get some pics and thoughts on it up after I've had a bit more time to try it out.

Any questions let me know.

:)

Ah no worries, I am probably going to let my car bed in for a few months to get some miles on the clock and make sure there's no teething issues before upping the HP that's if I do decide to do it.

How much does it cost to have it and who does it; is it a Mercedes Dealership fit?

Not sure to be honest as I've only just done a bit of digging on the internet for it, seems to be around 1k for the upgrade and I think it's available via MB dealers (From looking at the Brabus website)

40ps and 50Nm just to confirm.

So had the chip a week still no pics sorry.

What I have noticed:

The initial acceleration is better especially in S mode

The midrange pull is very noticeable even in E mode.

The mpg I've gone from average 49 to 58 so an added bonus as I drive a lot of miles.

The card idel sound is different sound a lot deeper IMO was the first thing my mrs commented on.

To be honest this does not transform the car into a 45 which some people may be expecting, no chip will. You can easily feel the difference but in my opinion it's only turned the car into what it should of been.

Is it worth the £1600 plus fitting maybe? Maybe not? It will all come down to your expectations.

I'd be interested to hear other peoples opinions.

Cheers

Eski

Cla1988 has that been verified by mb that your warranty won't be void. I know some say they will pick up the warranty but it's only to cover the chip not the rest of the car.

Worth a question.

Regards

Think Brabus will be making a chip for the 45? not to be greedy, but....

I asked my dealer and he told me that if I want the chip I should opt for the brabus or carlsson as they are the safest and more reliable. Moreover he told me since its nor remapping and just plug and play it wont null the void. Moreover the carlsson guy i sent, told me:
"Regarding the guarantee:
We grant a guarantee of 3 years on our C-Tronic Kit itself.
The guarantee term of your car in combination with our product runs until the vehicle has accumulated a total running time of 100,000 km, but
will, at the latest, expire 24 months after initial registration"

I think this is pretty reliable.

Is still get the mb bit in writing. Have have a signed letter from
Mb saying my warranty won't be void with this chip.

Better to be safe than having to battle it later.
