Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, 1 Picture Photoshoot 16-10-2022

Shot a pic when I was making some videos of the CLS.

Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, New Exide AGM 12-12 Aux (Auxiliary) Battery

Decided to replace the Auxiliary battery in the CLS, as I could not find how old the current battery was and also the top was dented?

I replaced the Varta Silver Dynamic AUX14 battery with an Exide AMG 12-12 battery. Replacement is very easy and can be done by any home mechanic.

The AUX battery can be found on the passenger side, under the air cabin filter

Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, SL65 AMG Grille

Replaced the original CLS55 AMG 3 louvre grille with a single louvre Mercedes SL65 AMG type of grille. I didn’t expect the grille to make such a difference in looks. Very happy with the outcome!

The 1 louvre SL65 AMG type grille, looks way more modern and ties in better with the lower grille

Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Damina Performance DM04 19 Inch Black Wheels

Was able to score another set of wheels just across the border (in Germany). The design from the Damina Performance DM04 wheels looked like something that I thought would look great on the CLS.

But after fitting them it left me with an underwhelming feeling. Sometimes, things can look good on paper, but in reality it doesn’t work out. For me, it was with these wheels. They look absolutely great, but I dont like the way they look on the CLS.

So they are up for sale again: https://link.marktplaats.nl/m1864897698

Whenever I buy new wheels, I make these selfies (sort of a tradition) 😀
