AMG DTM convertible, Canada, 4sale

Hi
It is time ... to sell my dream car. It took a lot of time and money to make it happen and it is the most amazing car, but I have new priorities in my life.

Please have a look at
Untitled Document
for more information.

It is not a replica - more of an homage to one of the most fascinating Mercedes' ever build! And it can be yours ...

Please pm me if you have questions, or an offer. I may be interested in a trade for a CL550 or a Pagoda. Any other vintage European car, or a newer 911 ...

Thank you!

First of all let me spoil you by saying I'm an asshole, like I just am mean most of the time, so dont get offended by whatever I say, anyway now that you know I'm an asshole, let me start with telling you how unnecessary was building a DTM for your self, you just thought putting a body kit, and lowering a 2004 CLK would become a 400k DTM? and you are saying you owned "one of a kind" mercedes by spending 90k? Do you even realize more than 70 percent of the body panels are made of the high-strength and particularly light carbon fibre composite material CRP? oh and you probably think the engine is just another 5.5 liter supercharged mercedes engine as well, its completely redeveloped by AMG, there is a reason CLK DTM Convertible was sold for 270k+ euros, it was world's fastest convertible car, it was built with a real dtm clk in mind, your car cant even do 0-60 less than 6 secs, what is it like 13 seconds quarter mile? (if you are lucky) and you are asking 70k? or a new a CLS550, or a Pagoda? or a newer 911? LOL good luck. Let me tell you how much your car is worth; $16k , I will be glad to buy it from you for that, let me know if you are interested.

and I LOLed how he tells about the problems but goes like no biggie:

"Are there any problems? In a way - yes. As I replaced the original seats (which have build-in airbags) with the AMG-Recaros, have the DTM bumpers (no extra fog lights compared to the standard CLK) so the computer shows some "error messages." Mercedes said they can't reset it as it is programmed into the main CPU (but it also does not effect anything, it simply shows an error). The steering wheel is out of a CLK55 and has paddle shifters. They don't work but all the buttons in the steering wheel do! The last thing .. just because I ordered rims with a deep dish (I don't like the original DTM rims)... the front wheels rub against the inner plastic wheel well. But only at full turn, and there's nothing behind the wheel well so it just pushes it a little back. Easy to correct if wanted, but it does not affect anything. And that's it"

So if you get in to an accident with that vehicle, the airbags wont deploy, buts its cool, you dont need airbags anyway.

The OP is trying to sell a car.
Obvious you are new and have described yourself correctly as an anal orifice.
This being admitted then you are not familiar with forum rules and just common courtesy.

"•Play nice with others in the sand pit. If you don’t like what is on offer, either don’t respond or if the item needs correction, do it respectfully or through PM."

The OP is honest in his presentation and not claiming anything that the car is not.

And yes young man you don't need airbags...
If airbags are a prerequisite for your piece of mind then you've never enjoyed or raced any vintage sports or collectible vehicles...much like the very desirable W113 Pagoda that you mentioned !!!!

And for both of you English language scholars "homage" is not a synonym for "replica" !!
Homage is a "tribute" not a "copy" as a replica is....
