Hi, I'm a chilean 24 year old owner of a crashed dark blue 1984 190E. Right now i'm trying to put it back together but have the idea of giving him a more sporty-younger look. I've got some ideas of my own, but want ideas from people who knows and cares. Haven't got zillions to spare, so i'd appriciate if any of you could give me some fair tunning combinations that would enhance my life saving benz, without killing my wallet.<br> <br> thanks a lot in advance,<br> Chillinbenz.

let me see... it had a broken front axle, a/c system, radiator, headlights, bumpers, several body parts, some electric system parts, and the list goes on. right now is in legal-running condition, and it's not painted yet, so i can still perform some little body modifications.<br> <br> expecting some advice,<br> Chillinbenz

Well I have always thought a rear spoiler suited the 190s very well. More so than the 300s or the S class. The car being small seems to go better with the spoiler. I'd say get it back to perfect order before you mod it.

If the front was hit, re-build it like the 300e, which is slightly more slanted and looks sportier. Also, use the modern lights and put $60 xenon light bulbs.<br> Check out this pic.<br> pa tu libro loco, haz algo asi y te sale un carro de la puta madre,<br>

Steve, half of that stuf (ac, electrical, etc)is just a standard maintennance for me! ;-)<br> <br> Lower it by putting sport springs and bilsteins shocks-it's cheaper and easier than you may think.<br> check out www.tirerack.com. You can even see how the car will look with the new suspension. You may try to get new wheels (I advise against chrome).<br> <br> Jamie, I like the black grill!
