My First Benz!!! Hi from Canada!

Hi There,

I just bought my first Mercedes. I picked up a mint 1997 E420...one owner car with only 147,000km on it. Here is a link to the car on Autotrader (until its removed) "http://www.mvlleasing.com/used/Mercedes-Benz/1997-Mercedes-Benz-E-Class-4531c2000a0a0002004f71a39017bf8f.htm"

I bought the car from my best friends dads dealership. I haven't taken possesion yet, and I'm already looking for parts...lowering Springs w/ shocks (recommendation for best set up? I don't want it dumped...max 1.5" drop), tail lights, and I plan on doing muffler delete on Monday when I pick it up (anybody have any idea how the muffler delete sounds?).

I look forward to getting to know the community!

Hi Nomis,
This may be a silly question but I'm curious - what is a "muffler delete"?

Regards,

Warren

Thanks for the greetings!
Hey Warren,
Sorry for the late reply, just got back from Vegas. Just removing the muffler and putting straight pipes in.
Delivery of the car was held up. The car was sent to a local Merc dealership for inspection, and the spring perches needed fixing. Apparently a common problem. I'm glad I'm not paying for that!
I've decided on suspension set up:
H & R Sport Spring
Bilstein Sport Shocks
(recommendations for front and rear sways???)

THANKS

Simon,
Thanks for setting me straight. No idea what it sounds like but probably very noisy. Sorry I'm unable to provide any advice on suspension mods but really not my thing. Drive carefully
