you would think that at least 1/3rd of that price would come into the allocation of warranty of your drivetrain transmission. I think it's expensive, but at quite a fair price, especially when they so confidently shout out a 100,000km/2years warranty on the other parts. Same goes with Brabus and other similar companies, which makes me worried about the "revosport" performance box.

Not only that it's 30kw (around 40bhp) more than other manufacturers, but also the fact that it doesn't have warranty. (That's the impression i got after talking with ken, he believes that the warranty should still solely rely on the warranty we get from the Mercedes Benz, hence just remove before inspection/service.) Just some food for thought.

Dont forget "the brand"

I had a sports cat/downpipe on my W204, for about 5
60% the price Kleemann offers, and i know they have the Same manufacter. Same as my Vath exhaust om my W204, produced by Fox auspuff... Buth because of the Vath branding you pay ( a lot) more)

Also the warranty , but think if you have problems they will try to lett you prove that the problem is because of their product.

The Brabus upgrade is nearly £1800! This is the quote they emailed me;

We can offer a BRABUS performance upgrade for this vehicle. The part is price at £1290 + VAT and the cost to fit will be £168 + VAT.
