I have the 1999 C43 AMG and am considering a compressor. I've never heard of your model. What year is it? Do you have a picture? How many horses does you Braubus compressor give you? Where'd you get it done? How much? and a million other questions. Let me know.

As far as I know, Piia makes some very nice small fogs. But to fit them on your car you most likely would have to cut the front air foil or screw them under neath it and risk ripping them off every time you drive on any surface less than perfect.

Yup that does help. Could you point me towards any other second hand Kleeman's on the market? Did you do the installation yourself?

In the Hot Rod section, the Kleeman supercharger for the C43 is supposed to boost hp from 302 to 450 and torque from 302 to 400. It should give you 0-60 times in the high 4's.

I'd love to do this, but the supercharger lists for around $11 grand new and allegedly costs about $9 grand to install professionally.

Any help you could give me to beat these prices would be greatly appreciated.

Also, since you have the C43, OE fogs are already cut into the bumper and could most likely be replaced with Piaa's or Piaa bulbs if they are not bright enough for you.
