Today is a good day. I am going to the dealership and getting my special order capri blue benz. I got my 19's waiting...that I picked up before even getting the car. Lowering it a bit tommorow. Finally, I really get to start taking part in this forum.
Hi, I'm in the market for a new car. i'm considering either the C320 sedan for 39,000. or E320 at 50,000. should i really spend the extra 12000 for another car. i'm graduating college in june, but i don't want to spend too much money on a new car. thanks
The new E-class will be coming out within a yr....
and yr resale value of getting a E320 now will be drastically lower in the future. I think a C-class is more appropriate for u at the moment. Given that its less expensive, the size is adeqate, the car fits a college graduate more, and it wont have a style change for another few yrs. <br> The C-class is a very reliable car. Usually there are minor problems for first yr MB productions (new E).
I too was debating between the E and C but like HT said, the new body E is coming out. You will feel like a tool if you spend $50,000 while others will be rolling in their new body E next year. I got the C because of the new body styling and features that the old E won't have. plus all the money you will save getting the C... put those saving into aftermarket stuff like rims.
hopup...I actually am putting 19' chrome Carlsson Evo's on and lowering it with H&R's. I wanted to go with Eibach for comfort but didn't think it would lower it enough. plus a shop in la gave a price of $330 installed, but only with H&R.
24hrs ago my benz was stock and now it has transformed into a bad ass machine. Picked it up yesterday...capri blue/java interior/C2/C4/zenon/19' Carlsson Evo's/tint. I had a bad experience lowering it because i bought the rims used and was told they would fit on a W203...wrong...i had to spent $75 a pop on spacers (good ones) and new lug nuts because the guy gave me S class lug nuts. $300+ for just spacers and lug nut on top of the money for the springs and labor...i left there with a lowered benz and a empty wallet. guess i should get used to it if i plan on owning a benz!
carlsson 1/6 evo chrome... really NiCE~~!! <br>
how much did you pay for your beauties if i may ask and did you have to roll the fenders? what are the sizes for the tires n the rims? are all 4 of 'em 19x8.5? <br>
really sweet ride congrats on your purchase (o^.^o)
No, I didn't have to roll the fenders and I paid $1950 for the rims used...but then I needed $350 in spacers and lug nuts. therefore, total was $2300 when all was said and done. saved myself $1000 buying used. All of them are 19 x 8.5 and I 'think' the tires are 225/35.
