What is Mercedes-Benz Performance Tuning?

Mercedes-Benz C-Class AMG Driving

Mercedes-Benz performance tuning is another term for elevating the performance capabilities of a new or used Mercedes-Benz or Mercedes-Benz AMG®, as well as its appearance. This is usually done with Mercedes-Benz performance parts that are specially designed for your vehicle’s year and trim level. Wondering about your performance tuning options? Read on to learn more about the parts available to you at Mercedes-Benz of Edison — your trusted brand experts near Staten Island.

Options for Mercedes-Benz Performance Upgrades

Two of the most common upgrades are ECU remapping and performance chips. Having your Electronic Control remapped involves configuring the electronic parameters that control the engine’s fuel and air intake. This is done by programming the software with a new map or creating a personalized map for your vehicle. Performance chips also help customize driving performance. Coupled with ECU remapping, performance chips can enhance fuel economy, torque balance, and overall handling as you cruise through East Brunswick. Other options include:

  • Exhaust: Give your vehicle that quintessential sports car growl.
  • Suspension: Adjust your vehicle’s suspension for sportier feedback, or give your Mercedes-Benz SUV greater off-roading prowess.
  • Cabin: Install a speedometer with increased speed range and give your interior a more streamlined look with a leather dashboard and more.
  • Exterior: Make passersby do a double-take on New Brunswick streets with an upgraded grille, fin antenna, spoilers, and classic Mercedes-Benz hood ornaments.
  • Lighting: There are plenty of street-legal headlight options, including halogen projector lights, LEDs, and black headlights.
