What did you do to your 202 today?

Lifted the thread idea from Vortex, started one on the 201 board... why not here too.

I'll start:

Washed, waxed and steam cleaned the interior of the 202, then I drove my 16V like an ass and took some pictures of the 202 in a cemetery.







Ahhhh... 16V fun. That exhaust note make me wet my pants!

I never realized your 190 was a 16v, sweet! Only seen two in person.

Washed the wheels and fitted a new windshield decal.

I went to the dealer (I know, I know) and got a windshield decal to replace the old one that was "thoughtfully" removed for me. I was sad at first because the dealership told me MB no longer supplies the old style and there is only one now, a clear background with silver text so you only see the writing and no white business card-shaped background. I bought it at $13, which was a bit of a rip but I didn't want to put any more effort into finding one. On the car I actually love it and much prefer to the old style since it looks much more elegant and disappears visually.

Also washed my wheels for the first time since waxing them a week ago... you guys were right, the brake dust almost fell off on it's own. Best advice on detailing a car I ever followed. I recommend it to ALL MB owners, you will be pleased with the results.

I changed the fan clutch and thermostat and gave it a nice wash and thorough cleaning of the interior.

If I drive the 16V like I drove the 230 today It would get about 30MPG on the highway. The 230 got almost 35MPG with the cruse on 65MPH and the A/C on for the entire trip.

Well, wasn't today, but yesterday I washed my car and finally took some more time to clean the grime and brake gunk that caked all over my wheelies! I feel so accomplished right now. I also wanted to polish, but my friend lost my damn clay bars, so i lost motivation. I wanted to claybar and rewash before i polished and waxed.

I also put in some of that fuel injector cleaner before i filled up on gas. Perhaps a placebo effect on the butt dyno, but my 202 seems like it has just a teensy little more kick from any gear.

Last night i ALSO took a photoshoot of my car with a few other friends (chutoyy on mymbonline). Tell me what you think: i'm still kind of new to taking shots. Photos taken with Canon SD1000 7.1MP

And I know, i want to get out of stock wheels, as well as get dumped on some H&R's, but it's too much of a long term liability where i won't be able to get up my driveway without scraping my exhaust and bumpers.

Sounds great. Is that typical? Was it the '98 or the '07?
