To elevate the performance and looks of a Mercedes-Benz model with aftermarket parts and upgrades, you’ll want to opt for Mercedes-Benz performance tuning. However, you have to be very careful about getting the correct parts for your vehicle. Some modifications, especially those done with aftermarket parts, could void your warranty. Check out our guide to performance tuning below, then consult your owner’s manual or your local authorized Mercedes-Benz retailer near Wilsonville.

Mercedes-Benz Performance Tuning Options

ECU Remapping & Performance Chips

Having your Electronic Control Unit “remapped” adjusts the electronic parameters used to air intake and control fuel delivered into the engine. You can adjust these parameters by uploading a new map to the software. If you want an even more personalized map, you can have a custom map designed for your specific vehicle. Performance chips are similar and both methods can result in faster speeds and acceleration, improved torque and fuel economy, and smoother handling on the streets around Vancouver.

Service Tips From Mercedes-Benz of Portland


    Along with chip enhancements, there’s an assortment of other enhancements and upgrades you can make to performance tune your Mercedes-Benz, such as:


    • Exterior: Turn heads on the streets of Vancouver with grill upgrades, spoiler upgrades, fin antenna attachments, and Mercedes-Benz hood ornaments.
    • Headlights: You can make street-legal modifications to your car’s Halogen projector lights or LEDs, or even purchase black headlights.
    • Interior: Upgrade your car’s interior style with speedometers with a higher range, leather accents and dashboards, and more.
    • Exhaust Sounds: Upgrade your exhaust system to create sporty race car “growl,” with names like “Earthquake” and “Daytona”.
    • Suspension: Adjust the suspension on your vehicle for sportier feedback or optimize your Mercedes-Benz SUV for off-roading excursions.
