Some fresh pics - up high for drive ways and stuff, dumped when parked and the low moving ride height. Sorted out some scrubbing issues in the rear end so I no longer have to drive it around on high setting. I think the front may be touching somewhere which is stopping it going down all the way. Will have to look into it but for now just enjoying having the thing on the road in running order.

Next on the list is a white venetian for the rear window. Any thoughts are welcome. It just looks like it needs something in there. Found a guy that makes them for w114.

so sick. you got e-level? how do you like it? what size lines you running?

i spoke to your mate that installed. He gave me all the info on your install (i think he thought I had a w114) i need to ask him again for the w108 details!

Yer James is great. Definitely has a passion for what he does. Probably why. Got it done through him - he was willing to explain it all to me and it was obvious he knew what he was doing.

Yer I got the whole e level option and anything else i could add on. I figured it was better to just spend the money and do it properly the first time.

I just checked this thread out for the first time. NICE RIDE SIR!

I had a W114 250 on Dayton wire wheels, but nowhere near as low as that!
