Kleemann Engine

Kleemann tune-up kits are now officially available in Malaysia through its official appointed dealer German Motors Sdn Bhd. The name German Motors may be familiar to you. Their outfit is based in Section 13 PJ and they are an independent service center for Mercedes-Benz, Smart, BMW, VW, Volvo and Audi cars in Malaysia, but naturally Mercedes-Benz cars are their speciality considering Managing Director Fritz Imbacher was previously with Hap Seng Star and was responsible for the setting up of their Bandar Kinrara service center.

German Motors can perform the installation of all products available from Kleemann Denmark, as long as it suits your car. Tune-ups that only involve ECU upgrades can usually be done on the same day. Since November 2009, German Motors has performed Kleemann upgrades on 14 cars so far, with 3 customers doing a complete upgrade including exhaust headers and performance camshafts.

Here are some example prices available:

  • 215hp, 310Nm 200K1 kit for E200K (W211): RM 8500
  • KD box for any CDI diesel (not only Mercedes): RM4,400
  • ECU upgrade for M272 V6 (W204, W211): RM5,450

There are also ECU upgrades for smart cars according to Mr Fritz but the price and technical information has yet to be released by Kleemann. Also, at this moment there aren’t any tune-up kits for the new turbocharged CGI engines found in the W212 E200CGI/E250CGI. According to the Kleemann website, the 200K1 kit for the M271 Kompressor engine is not just a simple ECU upgrade. Components in the kit include a ‘K-Box’, an air filter, pulleys/belts and a fuel regulator.
