Wheels are non descript, a bit aftermarket looking (Merc SLS replicas?) I'll take it in white over silverstone regardless

Pending the official specs, I don't expect much different besides:
- Comp Wheels
- Comp Exhaust and Grills/Gills (in black chrome which I already have)
- Comp Suspension

Then you have the LCI updates
- Front grille
- Headlights (M6 like but not exact?)
- New Steering Wheel (M6 like)


Anyone notice the frozen blue paintwork is in need of a detail? Paint issue on left side of hood.. detail might fix it.

I agree, not feeling the wheels also. I wouldn't mind upgrading to the sportier suspension and maybe the new grill.

It's not any paint issues, just moisture build up on the surface.

Sounds great.

But does 15hp make much difference? It's a 2.7% increase at that power level.

It makes all the difference in the world from a marketing standpoint, since it's MORE. But yes, it's paltry, especially considering how grossly underrated the S63Tu is in the first place.

Agreed on wheels being a letdown, and too bad these changes aren't available without springing for carbon ceramic.

On a side note, I'm at the track this weekend and a novice brought an M5. Glad to see one being used properly.

That competition package exhaust looks like the regular exhaust with black tips. It doesn't look like it has the 100mm Akrapovic tips. I wonder if it is the M Performance exhaust (by Akrapovic) or some crappy alternative.

It's the same thing I have on my M5.. which is the way it came from the factory. Standard M5 exhaust with black chrome tips.

I'm actually liking the new headlights now. It adds a more aggressive look.
