if you do a lot of driving i would not recommend, but the same goes for cutting the springs
the best way is to spend the cash and get proper setup.
for me it's perfect, i've been driving for a while now and love it.

Thank you. i always thought i would paint the coupe i get but this is the original 71 paint in perfect condition so it will stay as is.
yes i tinted the headlights, the fog lights and the rear tailights.
i have HIDs installed for the main light so the tint doesn't affect my night driving at all.
same for the rear tailights, i have leds everywhere so they are bright. but more importantly i protect my lights from scratches and chip stones. tint can always be replaced.

A very nice looking 250/8 Benz coupe. I noticed your windows look darker than original. Did you have them tinted professionally and what colour did you choose to do them?
Having your car featured in the news letter must make you feel proud.
