Did all the above mentioned work myself, but sent the Deez to Long Beach Mercedes to have it aligned, and sent the Transmission up to Reseda to have it gone through as it needed attention.
Interior
Had Driver and front Passenger seat rebuilt with new foam, springs, and covered in new MB-Tex (original blue color). Replaced Steering wheel with a OEM wheel in better shape. New floor mats all around.

Original owner had every cheesy pep boy add on, so I removed all stick on chrome around wheel wells and doors. Replaced front Grill. Plans to re-spray the car to factor color and add the one piece euro HID lights.
Audio
Replaced existing dated aftermarket radio with a new Bluetooth capable,Sony Faceplate, adding optioned microphone for hands free Bluetooth calls. New upgraded Speakers in dash and rear deck.

Lowered front suspension 2" by heating the front coils.

Currently have original 14" factory chrome wheels with new Michelin Defender 205/70/R14, but hoping to find a low offset or et set of AMG Aero I hammers , AMG Monoblocks, or AMG Three Pieces in 16" or 17' on this forum.
