Newbie wanting to introduce myself!

Just wanted to say Hello and Introduce myself! My name is Tom Trainor, I'm certainly a newbie to the MB scene as i have just purchased my first MB . Its a 99 clk 430 and I love it! I have been a member of several other forums including Steves Novas site with my Pro Street 63 Nova Big Block , 5-speed. Also a member of TBSS owners with my 07 Trailblazer SS with stroker 402 LS2 running mid 11's and lastly I've been over on Bimmerforums with my 98 540i M-Sport 6-speed that i just sold and bought my CLK. Not sure i can post up pics yet but I'll try as i know by now that is the best way to introduce myself is with pics right? Anyway hope to be able to ask questions(of coarse only after doing a search for my answer first). and meeting new friends and other MB enthusiasts!As far as CLK goes its basically stock other than the 19"Replica Brabus wheels i just added , I'm not crazy about the front wheels having the deep dish but was the only set i had found with the deep dish look i wanted. Verdict is still out on them and i want to go to a little wider front tire so the wheel lip does'nt protrude out past the tire like it does now. Just part of the learning curve with the new ride. I also just added the clear side marker lights. I just changed both motor mounts and trans mount as well after getting quoted a ridiculous $600.00 to have it done! Some of you with a keen eye will also notice that mine does have the less than favorable by most of you AMG badge on the deck lid .. But i did remove it after pics so now flaming please! Ok I've taken enought your time at this point . So I look forward to posting any changes and or suggestions as to what I should do next (besides lowering because thats already in the works with a set of lowering springs)
