hello new w202 owner from san marcos TX
hey guys just wanted to introduce myself.
Recently picked up a 1998 C230 for $2000 about 3 weeks ago.
I've done some work on the car still needs more work but it's getting there.
A couple days after I picked her up cleaned and waxed
She had miss matching front corners, a melted rear taillight, door locks didn't work as the central locking pump was fried, ac didn't blow out of the center vents as the vacuum reservoir was cracked, faulting maf sensor, had a dvd player in the dash attached to a flip down screen that didn't work which was screwed into the headliner pinning the sunroof cover back, and was just plain dirty.
painted the lowers black and installed matching corners and 6k HID's
installed new shocks and eibach pro-kit springs, installed a new taillight, tinted 5% in the back 25% in the front, jvc HD-Radio Cd-player, kenwood front speakers and pioneer 6x9's, 2 premier 10's in a bandpass and a Phoenix Gold Amp, and a new MAF sensor. 17x7 wheels
removed broken flipdown screen, lowered the front another inch by installing thinner spring seats, blacked out the grill, got my hood ornament stolen, and painted the rest of the gray trim black.
Plan on blacking out the window trim and getting 18 inch Wheels sometime soon, I do want to go lower and get some wheel spacers and get the front bumper resprayed. I also need 2 rear interior doorpanels as mine are pretty beat, I think the previous owner had dogs or kids or satan in the back seat. Also need to replace my oilpan gasket but that's a PITA job.
Any recommendations on a good exhaust?
