Question Need HELP!

Hey guys (and maybe gals...),

Ok so my boyfriend is a car nut and owns a 99 E430! He is German and is an obvious German engineering fan; Benz, Beamer, VW, etc. I am a chick so cut me a break but, I am learning my car ins and outs! I need help with getting him a gift and since he is so hard to buy anything for bcuz he sleeps, eats, and breathes cars I have come here. He is a member here as well and if I ask him anything about his car he will know what I'm trying to get him. He likes older models, I want to get him some things to spice his Benz up. Where can I get OE car mats or ones like his originals? I am in Savannah, GA and would like to have his headliner redone as well, any suggestions? He has been talking about wanting HID projection headlights and fog lights but there are specs for these things that go beyond my Benz knowledge thus far... I am no bimbo but I am really trying to do something nice for him. Any suggestions would be welcome and appreciated!

Thanks all!

Well... getting between man and his machine is EXTREMELY risky business.
Buy him MB golf clubs, or MB hand watch, or MB polo-shirt.
Germans do like good beer as well. ...

Stay with factory original equipment such as Floor Mats, Headliner Material virus after market equipment if you want to impress him with your knowledge of European cars. He will appreciate your choices related to his passion for fine German engineering
