Specializing in European Auto Repair in Plano, TX
At EurAuto Shop in Plano, TX., we specialize in servicing, repairing, and maintaining European cars, particularly the high-end German and British marques like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and McLaren. That results in a lot of exciting cars coming through our shop. A recent example is an AMG Mercedes C63 that came in for an oil change.
A Tuned Mercedes
When you see the letters “AMG” on a Mercedes-Benz, you know the engineers in Germany have worked some of their exceptional performance magic on a car. It will look lower and meaner, and it will have the speed and handling to match. The C63 is the AMG version of the C-Class, and being a Black Series, it’s the top of the line.
The owner of this particular car entrusted it to us because he knows we understand the needs of unusual and exotic European vehicles. This particular AMG Mercedes-Benz was endowed with some engine breathing modifications. These consisted of a modified intake, long tube headers, and a complete performance exhaust system.
Headers are what replace the exhaust manifold. The headers are made up of individual pipes for each of the cylinders that progressively merge. The merge reduces back pressure which lowers resistance to the piston moving up on the exhaust stroke and makes the engine more responsive.
How does it go? We couldn’t possibly comment, but we can tell you that it sounds incredible.
About The AMG Designation
AMG started as a separate tuning company. They specialized in making Mercedes-Benz cars go faster, and they were so good at it that eventually, Mercedes bought them out. AMG is headquartered in Affalterbach, Germany but the letters stand for “Aufrecht Melcher Großaspach,” which are the last names of the two founders plus the town where they were born in Germany.
The EurAuto Shop Service
The AMG Mercedes-Benz we’re discussing here was brought in for a routine oil change. It’s essential to keep up with oil changes in every car, especially when it’s a high-performance machine that can run very hot. Go too long between changes and sludge can build up in the engine. That restricts oil flow and cooling, both of which risk expensive problems.
We replaced the oil and filter as requested, making sure to warm the oil first and then let it drain completely to avoid contaminating the new lube with the old. In addition, we performed a digital vehicle inspection (DVI) as we do on every vehicle brought into our shop. Even if the DVI doesn’t find anything, as was the case with this incredible C63 Mercedes-Benz, the customer still gets a report, so they know our mechanic performed the inspection.
