Modifications

Drivetrain
Original 230E engine with well maintained 176 000km on the clock. Totally dry. Runs like a dream!
Interior
Creme cloth 055. 4-Electric windows, Electric sunroof. 4 headrests. Original tachometer.
(Looking for original armrest.) Nardo Zeprano steering wheel.
Exterior
Kept original with a hint of owners own minor (tasteful?) modifications.
Front bumper customized with one piece rear bumper rubber. Number plate moved down.
After pictures was taken I installed white blinkers. (not sure if they stay!) Added extra original chrome strips to grill.
Audio
Radio replaced with a more modern unit. Mercedes-Benz Becker Alpine Audio 10 CD. Good performance and a look witch blends in with the stock interior. Original speakers replaced with new Pioneer units. No cutting required. Pioneer TS-WX610A subwoofer in spare wheel.
Rear original plastic (ugly in my opinion) speaker covers replaced with billet aluminum ones with stainless steel mesh. This is painted creme.
Suspension
Fully restored. Everything sandblasted, re-zincked and powder coated. All original bolts are blasted and re-zincked. All bushings, bearings and linkages are brand new Mercedes parts. All 4 brake disks are brand new with pads. Calipers are blasted and re-zincked.
H&R lowering springs with Monroe gas-dampers.
Wheel and Tire
For now running on 8x16 RONAL rims. Black and polished. I have a set of 8x17 and 9x17 3-split wheels just waiting to go on. Fully polished inside and out. These wheels came from factory with original spacers. (for ensuring perfect fit) When I bought them they came without them. Had to search for them, but now they are in house just waiting to go on.
