AMG sport package
Bought this one from a friend, who wanted to scrap it. Invested 150 work hours and 4000 dollars in parts. Drives like a dream now. No leaks. Has all options installed. Everything works, not a single missing part and nothing rattles or flakes...and I mean nothing! Came with all paperwork, manuals and 3 keys complete. Gave it to my wife for our ..th wedding anniversary. She loves it.
1999 Mercedes-Benz R170 (black 040)
It came with a new head and and excellent compression on all four cylinders. Kompressor, Air pump, AC, Power steering and Waterpump were in top condition. Changed all fluids incl. engine oil, transmission, brake, cooling, final drive and Kompressor fluid. Removed rats nest and had to clean out 20 years of dirt from the engine compartment. Changed valve cover gasket, spark plugs, O2 sensors and several rubber hoses and plastic clips.
Red/Charcoal interior. Leather seats were still nice. Removed and fixed both door panels and exchanged all dashboard parts and center console for refurbished plastic parts from Holger in Florida. Installed new headliner, sport steering wheel and refurbished all 5 hydraulic roof cylinders.
Swapped headlights for black Dual Halo Spider lights. Changed grill for updated sportier version.
Kept the OEM BOSE system and head-unit incl CD-changer, since they worked fine with excellent sound.
