See below for the reason Mercedes dealers are comfortable with Renntech's products.


Renntech is a Florida company established in 1989 by Hartmut Feyhl. It is best known for performance modifications of Mercedes-AMG automobiles.

Feyhl had spent 12 years at AMG well before the tuning company became part of Mercedes-Benz in 1999, serving as that company's North American technical director and acting as a driving force behind the AMG Hammer—an iconic early 1990s automobile which was, for a time, the fastest production sedan on Earth, with a top speed approaching 300 km/h.

What I know they've done yet with Mercedes AMG 5.5 liters engine on the AMG-55 models is replacing two sides of air intake before it goes to the AMG compressor, making output of the supercharge for 27 horsepower more, and put the RennTech labels on both sides of intake under the hood, and on the back of the Benz trunk. All that costs $700. Yes they are in South Florida. No, they aren't a reputable Mercedes tuner yet, and no, I wouldn't give them my G55AMG for tuning. IMHO.

Suit yourself. We will never agree on this topic, and further discussion will not change your mind or mine. Best we move on and let this minor detour of the thread die of neglect.

Protag's photo looks like a Corona beer commercial.

As long as their retirement pay is funding my camping trips, it doesn't hurt to advertise.

Funny thing, I didn't add the license plate until AFTER I retired. Didn't want to look TOO gung-ho while I was working for them or they might have gotten the mistaken impression that I was some kind of deviant who LIKED working for the Government! I like being RETIRED from the Government, though!

Being retired from any organization that pays you a pension is great!

Protagonist, nice picture!
But where is your exterior front windows cover, and where you bought so big and well fitted interior windshield cover?

I have both internal (pictured) and external windshield covers. In particularly hot or cold weather I use both at once.

For that particular trip I used only the internal cover because I had accidentally left the external one in the washing machine after it got hit with bird droppings on the previous trip. Danged seagulls!

I got the pictured windshield cover from Outside Vans. It comes in three pieces, one for the windshield and one for each front window. All three pieces accordion-fold for storage.

Gentlemen, question on a headlamp washers:

When I am using the washer fluid with vipers onto windshield, the headlamp washer is always spraying as well. Does someone know how do deactivate the headlamp washer spray for every time I press the windshield washer lever?
(For example, my other Benz has a separate button for headlamp washer, and it automatically sprays every 20th time I press the windshield washer.)

Can you please help me to understand? It looks like the headlamp washer will spray every single time when I spray the windshield if the vehicle lights are on. And when the vehicle lights are off - the headlamps washer is not active.
Am I right?
