AMG sport package
Bought this one from a friend, who wanted to scrap it. Invested 200 work hours and 5000 dollars in parts over 3 years. 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 wedding anniversary last year. She loves it.
1999 Mercedes-Benz R170
It came with a fairly new head (7 years old) 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 7 years of dirt from the engine compartment. Changed valve cover gasket, spark plugs, front crank seal, O2 sensors and most 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.
Changed grill for updated sportier version. New... used... perfect AMG front bumper for 400 dollars. Needed partial paint-job due to faded clear coat and some scratches in 2019
Kept the OEM BOSE system incl. CD-changer, since they worked fine with excellent sound, but swapped the head-unit against a refurbished Becker Audio 10 with aux-input.
Swapped headlights for black Dual Halo Spider lights.
Added SL320 chrome tip
Installed new OEM rear suspension and steering damper as well as 4 new shocks. After the 4-wheel alignment it drives like a smooth Go-cart.
Wheel and Tire
Came with some junky chrome mags and worn tires. Installed 8x18 JNC (BBS style) wheels with +34ET and perfect Centerbore and mounted 235/40ZR18 on all 4. Added 5 mil spacer ion front for tight fit without rubbing or fender problems.
