Here;s my baby. (Finally went advanced and found how to do it).:grin

Very nice. The dark windows tint looks great too. Nice area. Where was that pic taken? (Looks like Healesville, Vic. Aus)

C230 Sport Kompressor with AMG CLK55 18" wheels. ET 37F / 30R. Had them repaired, balanced, and powder coated a darker gray than the usual gray AMG wheel.

Thanks Hutcho85. I wanted to do the rims differently than others. All of the other refinements will be the usual like everyone else. But, i'm gonna add a little detail to stand out from the crowd. We'll see what happens as time goes on......stay tuned.

Getting ready for another blast down the Blue Ridge Parkway to the Tail Of The Dragon in the ol' 2005 C230 Kompressor. This time along with my friend in his red '94 Viper, there will be an '88 Mustang and a circa 1997 Z3.

I went to remove the front license plate to clean behind the mount and the screws were so rusted out they pretty much fell apart in my hands. Hope I don't get a ticket; there's a dealership in Roanoke where I can stop and get screws, but I'd much rather run the car without the license plate.

Looks great with no D front number plate

FINALLY time to get rid of the stupid MRR GT1s that were on my daughter's car when we bought it 5 years ago. Sure, they looked pretty nice and all that, but they have been nothing but trouble. Most likely due to PO using fix-a-flat and not cleaning them properly afterwards, so we never got them to seal properly. Not to mention the lack of ride comfort.

Back to stockers we went and, IMO, it looks so much better. And finally a ride that doesn't rattle your teeth every time you hit any little pebble on the road. PLUS, my daughter likes the look of stockers much more, too! Now I don't have to get the calls from her saying this or that tire is flat again. Definitely a hassle the last three years while she's been in college.
