New Stuff

Tomorrow I am going to install my painted mud flaps, side marker lights and tire valve caps on my 08 C300.
Anyone have any upgrade suggestions?

No offense man, but in my subjective opinion, you should not install the mud flaps, but the decision is all yours.

Cheers.

Any particular reason? I did get them installed and they are looking very stealth because they are painted with the same paint code as my car. These mud guards are made by the same company that supplies Mercedes with mud guards. They were the only company that sold the mud guards that custom fit the C300 sport model. My mechanic who I have worked with the last 20 years did a great job they are nice and tight and he put a thin clear bead of waterproof caulk around all the edges.
If anything goes wrong I will let you know that you told me so.

Don't get me wrong I welcome advice but it would be good to know the reasoning behind the advice.

Here are some photos with the mud guards and the side marker lights.
I think it looks pretty good not over the top like some cars I have seen.

My next changes will be to change my center wheel caps and my hood emblem to one with the black background.
We are celebrating Independence day here in the states...so it will be a whole lotta eating and drinking today.
