Just curious, what's so special that 4 rims + 4 tyres cost 4.5L?

The name "Brabus" says it all pal.

I remember once getting a quote for Brabus kit (alloys,spoiler,side-skirts,& few stuff) for my friends E class...i would've easily bought a new automatic civic in that price

Are these the same that were with Four Seasons??
and can they be fitted on a ML,
how would it effect the ride and handling?? --Ishan can you give your inputs?
the landed should be in the region of 2.50 lacs, why asking so high? correct me if im wrong.

A good friend of mine who works with Millennium Mobility (Merc A.S.S) in Pune told me that most of the cars who went the Brabus way have reverted to stock specs owing to lots of problems faced by them. He also mentioned that he has some DC kits lying in scrap since people just get over them as they do nothing but cause problems for them. I am not very sure of the nature of issues they faced but I remember these statements very well.
On the other hand they had good thoughts about Lorinser kits. I am no expert but this is what he had to say.

I wouldn't recommend them on the last gen ML sir. She's already quite stiff on Mumbai roads (rode in it sometime back) and putting on 19" would deteriorate the ride further, don't think you would like the comfort-to-looks tradeoff.

Is there some way you recommend, i can reduce the stiffness, do want a softer ride! is changing the tyres to softer rubber as in "grand tourer" design be of help?

With these tires it will not fit on the ML. You will have to go for 285/45 VR 19 Pirelli P Zero Rosso. The higher side wall profile will reduce the stiffness.

No will not recomment for the E Class as ride will be too hard and jarring.
