Newbie from Toronto with first Benz

Greetings to all,

Just picked up my first Mercedes-Benz, a 2002 C240 Sedan with close to 140,000 kms on it. First off, thanks to all the posts warning about the problems in some of the W203s, I thoroughly checked the car and all seems to be fine. Would not have known or checked so thoroughly had I not been on this forum before. Car had the right feel to it, so I just had to pull the trigger....let's see how this turns out.

I am not interested in more HP or speed, but for better visibility, I'd like to change the headlights to some projector housings and HIDs. For aesthetic reasons, I shall go with the sport grille with the star logo and the flat badge on the hood as opposed to the standing star on the hood and plain grille. Also, some rims 16-17, nothing to flashy would be nice.

That's all I have in mind, gonna try and be active on here, hope to learn a lot from you guys. Any suggestions on what kind of headlight housings or grille and rims are appreciated. My car is that dark navy blue, not sure what is its official color title.
