Hello everyone I have returned to the w201 world. Seems no one can find me a Black/Black w208 clk55 <50k, so I picked up this little lady as a daily driver. She is a 1992 Lorinser 2.6. Has factory Lorinser bodykit, wheels and full exhaust. She has 130k on the clock and needs some TLC. The previous owner was not very kind to her, he used her as a parts pick up car. She is mechanically sound though. I have several plans for her in the near future. I can see the potential in my little diamond in the rough.

So far:
Pioneer DEH-P700BT with built in blutooth for hands free mobile
Power Bass 6.5" in rear deck
Power Bass 5" in fron Dash
Front Side Windows 28% tint
Rear Side Windows 15% tint
Rear Window 15% tint
Bosch Wiper Blade

Next Weekend:
Mobil 1 Synthetic oil change
Oil filter
Spark Plugs
Wires
Cap
Rotor
Transmission filter
Synthetic transmission fluid
Coolant Flush
Air filter

By End of May:
Carbon Fibre overlay on all wood trim
BiXenon Euro Headlights
Wheel refinish
Dunlop Dunlop Direzza Star Specs
Considering smoked rear tail lights
Factory floor mats
Antenna
Gear shifter - have not decided on style
Total respray

Looking for:
Full 16v or sportline interior or 4 door cards until found
LSD

And now for some pictures (sorry for crappiness had to use roommate POS P&S), these are from the initial cleaning, receiver, and speaker install.

Wow, Lorinser equipped...nice.

That interior looks horrid, but indeed, a diamond in the rough.

Good luck and keep us posted!

The seats were covered in grease but with some Krud Kutter it all came off. All of the door cards are shot. The wood accents are shot too. I have a guy who is going to wrap them in carbon fibre. I would like a black 16v interior or sportline. But until I find a full interior I am looking for the 4 door cards. I will be going to all the salvage yards in S. Florida next weekend.

good luck with the project!! I think a set of Hella smoked lights would look nice on the car. They cost more than those other ones, but the quality and build is OEM.
btw how did Lorinser setup the exhaust system?

Welcome back! Where are you located. With the wood, try sanding them down and re-coat them with varnish.
