Post Body Kits for W140

Does anyone know where I can find a reasonable looking body kit for a 1997 S500? The kit that I have found from VIP is just too over the top for my liking. I am looking for something a bit more subtle. I describe my '97 S500 as 'understated elegance, fused with restrained aggression' BenzWorld.org member pong899 has on his car exactly what I am looking for. The 'tuning fork' wheels, the vents behind front wheels and a more aggressive front and rear bumper.) I like the look of the 'old school' AMG style front bumper, but cant find one for the year I have. I am also trying to find the old school Hammer look (ala 500E AMG wing) for the rear deck. I'm having no luck, can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanx

you can go to MB dealer and by the AMG bodykit for the early W140.
It looks like Hammer. Really "edgy"

Do let us know following your visit to the dealer.

Given that the W140 is no longer in production, chances are that it's almost impossible to get the pre-facelifted W140 AMG kit (hammer look w/ hella fog lamps)

Either that or be prepared to fork out an arm & a leg for the complete AMG kit.

cheers!

We will see what happens. Benzworld member pong899 has on his w140 the exact bodykit I am looking for. (see if this link to the pix workshttp://www.benzworld.org/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/49291/ppuser/129818) however I'd like the 'old school' AMG front bumper to add to my car. Also, Benzworld member maci9111 has a 'boot' lip on his car that I am also looking for as well. dont have a link to that pic yet. We will see what happens when I visit the dealer and inquire about the old AMG body kit availability

Pong's kit certainly looks a lot like a custom job, which is pretty common in Thailand (judging by the license plates).

AFAIK, the so-called tuner kits which were made for the W140 are AMG (Pre & post facelift), Brabus [front (w/ integrated fog lamps) & rear bumpers], Lorinser (F&R bumpers), Carlsson, Wald (F/R/Sideskirts), Fabulous (Japanese), etc

In any case, do let us know the quote from the dealer.

Cheers!
