Benz veteran returning to the scene

Hey all. I used to be pretty active on and, but got into the JDM scene for a little bit, then just lazy with cars overall.

My current rides are:

W202 1998 C280 Sport in Opal Black and light grey leather
-genuine AMG C36 kit
-Vollstrom CF roof spoiler (only 2 in N. America!)
-18"x8" OZ F1 Cup Modular wheels
-H&R/Bilstein setup
-AWE cross-drilled rotors (used to have C36 setup up front)
-Brabus muffler
-K&N drop-in
-Brabus CF steering wheel
-Various AMG and chrome interior pieces

R129 1991 SL500 Charcoal Metallic w black interior
-Full facelift Genuine AMG bodykit
-Facelift projector headlights (bi-xenon), corners and tail lights
-Facelift dark chrome grille
-H&R & Bilstein setup
-AMG exhaust
-AMG Monoblock II, 18"
-AMG gen II sport steering wheel w/ Burlwood trim basically it looks like a lowered 2000 SL500 Sport

W163 1999 ML430 Silver w dark grey leather
Just got this one a couple of days ago, but have lots planned for it, cosmetically at least.

So that's basically it. Have loads of W202 experience, but the W163 I'll need a few pointers on. R129 Is actually some of my old inventory from Japan that I'll be selling in the spring, after my W163 bodykit's installed.

Will also be parting out some of my W202 pieces and getting rid of some of the extra stuff I got for it, like the C36 front brakes or the Rieger roof spoiler and Lorinser sway bars that I never installed.

But I must admit... it's far too tempting to want to buy more stuff for my W202, swap in a 4.3 or 5.5L V8 and convert it to a track car. Perhaps if I win the lottery?
