Cool

those look horrible... ive seen very few "nice" examples of widebody R170s.....

here is one with "subtle" modifications to the rear arches... he is running 18x10.5" rear MAE wheels...

notice the 1st picture is with stock rear arches, the second picture is with the arches modified. the front fenders are rolled & pulled like mine






here is a full widebody conversion based on an SLK230 with AMG sport. pkg. featured in eurotuner magazine some time ago.. this car has some nice bits and pieces but I really would have done ALOT of things differently.. overal, i think its a nice try.

Thats EXTREM!!!! Car looks good , but not for me. Reminds me of the MB they race in the SEDAN CLASS. The fenders don't flow w/ the car. They look like what they are... just added to cover the tires.
Om the other side, the YELLOW car has a complete fender added.

I'm not a huge fan of that look but it is nicely done. I especially like the paint scheme under the hood. Looks very clean. I can't figure out what the 2 little things are on the drivers side A-pillar. Looks like fans?

because it dosnt, it only has wider rear arches, and than the front fenders have only had the lips rolled and pulled outward.. to make room for the larger / wider front wheels.

yeah im not a fan of it either.. i think the fenders are way over done and make the car look extra-bulky and heavy.. but at least it was done cleanly and can be used as an example.
