Greetings from New Zealand

HI all ,Ive been meaning to join here for some time,so it looks like i finally made it !
As the title suggests,i live in New Zealand,and have been a Merc fan since i bought my first w123 in the late 80s,ive owned many other makes and models such as Alfa Romeo,VW,and Fiat,but for some reason i always keep coming back to the merc models, its like some kind of disease that cant be cured !!
Away, my current project is an 88 (euro spec) 190e 2.3 8v manual in blue-black metallic (evo I/II colour),fully optioned with black leather interior,sunroof etc and quite rare here in NZ,it was imported from japan in late 98 with me being the third owner!
Some mods i have done to it so far, are 16v brake conversion,H&r spring set,modified front sway bar from a W124 E320 and rear bar from a 99 CLK,custom exaust with sebring twin tip rear muffler box and 16x8 evo I rims.
Other things i have to be fitted are Koni ajustable shocks (in the next few weeks) and a full evo II body kit, I imported from japan a couple of years ago (may not be fitted) as have lost interest in the evo theme....whats the point of "all the show"," without the go" !... so could be up for sale !
