2017 Q60s Redsport modifications

Has anyone done anything to their 17 Q60 RS yet?
I want to get ECU Tune & Exhaust. Haven't been able to find out much on either.
Any information on what this would to do the warranty?

Thanks in advanced.

Nothing yet, engine is still fairly new. But I'm sure some of the usual suspects are hard at it.

In the meantime, Fast Intentions have already created a pretty good exhaust system for the Q50RS. No doubt it should be a plug-n-play for the Q60RS as well. The system dyno'd on the Q50RS at 393whp/~380wlb-ft/tq...and that was without a tune. It also gave the car a mean (but business-like) growl that it deserves.

The FI Q50 exhaust is not plug-n-play.

However, they did just release a Catback and Lower Down Pipes specifically for the Q60.

As far as exhaust goes, Stillen, GTHaus, and Z1 are all working on Catbacks. Still no word on intakes though

To answer your question though, ECU tunes will most likely void the warranty. Exhaust could but most dealers don't mind them.

Thanks for all the input, I know the model is extremely new. I was advised at the dealership that Q50 aftermarket exhaust's would most likely not fit on the 17' Q60's.

That is my one gripe about the car so far, it needs a little rumble to go with the 400hp. I know they build it so you would not hear it while in the cabin, However I want to hear it. Test driving an AMG made really appreciate the sound it puts off.

I completely agree. I wish they incorporated valves or something into the exhaust that you could control thru the driving modes.

I plan to change the exhaust once I am sold on one that i like. FI sounds very mild from the Youtube videos that they have posted. I feel as if I wouldn't be satisfied paying that much for a mild sounding exhaust.

Agreed. Although I will say that when you add the down pipes, it gets to where I like it, but that's about 2grand all-in.

Yeah a factory value option would have been nice for a sports exhaust with a value...

Exactly. I am interested on how it sounds with just the down pipes and stock exhaust. For $400 I'd much rather do that
