It's possible I may have been something of an M-B poseur. - Page 4 - Mercedes-Benz Forum

This fine, chrome finished aftermarket bezel does not meet with your approval?

You're missing the point. It is essence or purity of design that decides what aesthetics remain consistent and thus appropriate. Americans in their arrogance attempt to mix and match any design they think is new and inventive. This leads to many ghastly abominations in architecture and design we see today and in the recent past.

As far as your Benz, wings and dollops of chrome on a so called Teutonic, austere design are inappropriate. Pin stripes without a defined crease or body line to follow is fussy as well.

I deeply love BBS LM wheels. I have never been able to afford them though.

^Warren Buffet wouldn't afford those wheels. I damn sure won't either. Money wasted on a car for personal reasons that doesn't benefit resale doesn't jive with me. You think I lose money on the old cars I collect? Are you kidding? There is no reason to lose money on just about anything. Ever. So no I cannot afford them because I am not into blatant and lazy self indulgences.
