Great looking car!!! I'd for sure keep the wheels. Get Euro headlights. Do you have any of the AMG documentation?
I have a gray interior of my 1984 380SE(not AMG).
Really nice car.

I Love the car, One thing I love is the Zebrano box.
A couple things that need changin (only in my opinion)
1. Euro headlights.
2. Real AMG Badge like the one Pictured.
3. As everyone says get a an original grill back and paint it black and put more chrome stripes on it.
One more suggestion: try to get yourself an AMG steering wheel, Makes a big difference and will finish the car off nicely.

And one question. Can we see under the hood?:D

My 2 cents on the grill:

There's a colossal difference between doing something to be different, and doing something to make the car look good. Those style grills are extremely, extremely tacky. You have a unbelievably unique AMG 420 with a great set of wheels, and a booger on its shirt in the form of that grill. If you want to be unique with the grill, then get something like this:
eBay Motors: MERCEDES BENZ W126 260SE 300SD/SE 380SEL 420SEL GRILLE (item 150252706596 end time Jun-02-08 20:08:22 PDT)

Less then a hundred bucks. Trust me, it will make a world of difference.

Fantastic car !

Looks superb and all the right bits too !

Well done and enjoy !

BTW, there is nothing wrong with the AMG badge and i think the headlights are great. We Euro boys like US lights !

The original grille would probably be nicer though.

Enjoy !
