It's lowered by using the adjustable link kit from Adjustable Air Ride. Easy to install and uninstall, as well as to adjust to the requested height.Very Nice! How did you lower it? Look forward to seeing more pics.
WICKED sweet! Do you have airmatic? You used links for the rear? How did you lower the front? Awesome R!
Thanks! Yes, I have Airmatic - so I use adjustable links both front and rear. Thanks to the Airmatic, I can raise the car approximately 3 inches from the lowered position (as You all allready know). Very useful sometimes here in Norway: 5-6 months with winter and snow...WICKED sweet! Do you have airmatic? You used links for the rear? How did you lower the front? Awesome R!
Sweet! love Your R-Class, great color choice. :thumbsup:Here is our 2006 R500. Purchased it in August 2008. I have added the wireless rear backup camera, 19" AMG wheels w/Michelin Lattitudes, chrome trim around front/rear lights, AMG pedal covers, brown floor mats, IU plate, Sheepskin inserts, cup holder in rear of the front console, nets for the cargo area, and soon a hitch for a cargo carrier.

Your Welcome, :thumbsup: ya vacations are fun, So how fun is Your R-Class to drive? just wondering.Thanks for the compliment!! Took the R-Class to Colorado for a 2 week vacation. We went up Pikes Peak Mountain - 14,000 feet high and did it without any issues. Notice in the pics a KIA mini van did not have such good luck. Talked to the owner, it started missing real bad around 12,000 feet. I just love this vehicle!!
That's good to hear that You didn't hit her, I would too like to be able to get an R63. I have always liked it. By the way what think of the Diesel model? have been wondering about it.Fun...The R500 is not a sports car, but I do really like the power of the V8. It does not have the airmatic suspension, so it can get a little lefty/righty floaty at times. I absolutely love the passing power and it sounds good also. Dead quite interior is great also. I have not pushed the car yet to see what it can do as far as handling, but I can tell you this..three days ago while traveling through Rocky Mountain National Park I was doing 30 to 35 miles an hour down hill and came upon a car parked in my lane on the shoulder, I did not see anyone in it from a distance, but I did put the left side of the car over the center line, no oncoming traffic, just as I got to the car pulled off, a 14 year old girl opens up the door and runs out of the car to cross the road to get her picture taken, ran right in front of me, I hammered the brakes cut it hard left and by the grace of God missed her by about an inch. Scared the crap out of me and her, it took me 5 minutes to get my heart rate down. The R500 barked the tires just for a split second when I hit the brakes hard, it turned on a dime and that has SOLD me on handling for this vehicle!! Fun, yah it is fun for what it is, the R63 would be funner and my dream car CLS63 would be even more yet, but for now...I do enjoy it so much..it is a great family hauler!!!
Great to see someone experimenting. I also llike this look; you just have to work out the turn signal problem.Has any one tried this look ?
If so please post pictures and close up how you did it....
No problem here since day one over a year and still had them on.I think you are not suppose to use a 70 watt bulb into a 55 watt housing, unless you have changed it of course AsianBlackR350.
