Installed EBC slotted/dimpled rotors and pads on my 2015 BRABUS, and switched over to TOYO PROXES TR1 185/55R15s for warm weather driving. Also gave it a good wash.

I have the identical Brabus. It's funny that it get more interested comments in parking lots than my 2021 Mercedes AMG GLA45.

Really think I gotta look into a suspension update for my 453. Changed the front brakes and rotors the other week, and noticed the boots on the shock tube are shredded apart. Can't imagine the rear ones being much better, but haven't looked at those yet...

Then again.... What do you expect for 98,000 miles? I can say one thing, though.... Longest lasting set of wiper blades I've ever encountered. Still the factory ones.

Initiated a discussion with my youngest daughter about her possibly taking custody of the all white Canada 1 BRABUS diesel convertible.

I used an ozone generator to remove the smell of the previous owner's dog. Deep cleaning didn't work, changing the cabin filter didn't work, but this worked. Don't get me wrong, I love dogs and have two but the car is not the place for a dog unless you're heading to the vet or groomer (I don't think this one had been to the groomer lately :ROFLMAO:)

I also installed the under seat bass unit. Definitely not premium audio, but it sounds much better now.
