Congratulations and enjoy your new toy over the long weekend.
Still wouldn't advise sleeping in it. Unless you have the one with folding rear seats

Very, very nice. Tasteful, aggressive, but not over the top. Is it actually an AMG?

Thanks, that's exactly the look I was going for!! The car itself is a 320CE, I'm told by the guy I bought it from the skirt is original AMG, there is a little metal plaque on the dashbaord, I will have to post a picture of it. Probably isn't original, but it's certainly the best quality skirt I have seen for this car. I know about the AMG Hammer and the E36 coupe and I had been looking for an E36, but they are so rare, I don't know if any were imported to Hong Kong where I currently live. The wheels were bought by the previous owner a couple of years ago, they are 17", slightly bigger than the original 16" alloys (there is one of the old wheels on the spare).

What a stunner. To, too, am not a big fan of that color normally but it does have a certain elegance on coupes and SL's. Really, your car looks very unique and beautiful in that color and I would be proud to drive her! Good find.
