Maybe you should add a real good sound system, I mean like there is still tons of space in that trunk and all, but it looks real nice, though I sorta liked the older rims you had on there... Unfortunately you can not put hydraulics in these things because of the crumple zones but I think it would be nice to be pulling into the grocery store doing 3 wheel motion... I wouldn't do any of that hopping mess though, as not to damage the suspension, but nice car... Might do something like this one day

1987 190D 2.5 auto 320K- decommissioned due to rust

Looks sick, sans those awful ebay wheels.
You should try to get the AMG OZ 3 piece monoblocks, those would be dope on this thing.
