Looks fantastic!! I still maintain that the W220 is one of the most beautiful cars out on the road today.

Families in NY? That's my own car... daily driver.

430? No... it's an S500 and the engine has Brabus components in it. Car does 0-60 in 5.1 seconds.

Great Pics !! You certainly have a talent for photography. The way the pics started out, I was hoping to see Jenna Jameson or Jennifer McCarthy ( I'm not picky ;) ) posing next to it.

Ok onto serious questions, what color is the car? I have a capri blue and depending on the light, it looks black.

The S-500 emblem is missing? On purpose? I have seen that in Italy where people take them off for ostentatious reasons. I dont get that, emblem or not its still a big ass benz !! lol

Oh the driving for the families in NY post, my guess is he was refering to the Sopranos ;)

Haha... next time, I promise.

It's black.

Yes... it's debadge, I think it makes the lines on the back of the car flow nicer.

Brabus B11 + Iridium Plugs

Also had the lowering module, but removed it since I was about to trade the car in, but that got canceled, I have to put it back in and hackup the wiring again.

As someone who appreciates a good car photo... very nice work. I like the sunset shots best, I think.

Okay let me try to tacle all of these haha...

1. I would debadge everything but an S55 AMG. It does make it look cluttered, and if you decide you need the badges, they are available from the dealer (very cheap) and from eBay (even cheaper).

2. Lighting? I'm just good I guess haha... I can't control the sun.

3. Pictures were shot with a Canon EOS 30D, no tripod, all pictures are 1/25th or 1/30th second exposures.

4. I hope you are kidding about the rims... they are standard 18" AMG rims. You can get them a million places... eBay Motors: 2006 Mercedes CL500 AMG Rims & 18' Tires (item 320114865596 end time May-25-07 14:46:25 PDT)

We were actually debating on 6SpeedOnline if the rims that you have flow better with the body or not... check it out and judge:

The second set makes the S look longer. But the first set makes it look sportier. The second set also looks bigger...
