Greetings from Georgia

Been on the board for a bit, realized I haven't made a proper introduction.

My name is Chris, I'm from Loganville, Georgia - by way of Nevada City, California. Got here courtesy of Uncle Sam (US Army, 3 years in Germany plus another year wrapped up in Desert Shield/Storm and some time in Turkey).

I've been a car guy, mostly Volvo, since I was a teen. Owned my first Benz when I was stationed in Germany. 1976 240D, cherry red - miss is all the time.

Now I've got a sweet 2001 SLK230.
wheels are Lorinser RS5 - 18x8.5" front, 18x9.5" rear

Rear tires came with the wheels and are a tad too too wide for lowering - rubs on bumps.
Need to wear these out and replace with a little stretch going like I have up front.

215/40/18 on 8.5" wide wheel.

Added a set of projector headlights also...

Mmmmm... Halo-y!

Will be replacing the head gasket in the near future, leaking from the rear of the head near the bellhousing. Any advice on that will be well received.

Thanks for looking!

2001 SLK230, Lorinser RS5 - 18"x8.5" & 18"x9.5", Spyker projectors
