from the pics that do show up i would upgrade to 15" stock wheels to give it a more update look, i would also upgrade the headlights, or even just put covers on them for now.... i'm doing euro headlights soon also.... other than dat the car looks good check out my car in my gallery i got custom taillights, clear corners and etc let me know what u think

your right, ur headlights look realy good, its the never us versions i guess? mine i fidn look awful but i rather save up to get euro instead of geting new lenses and then changing them. i can get used euros for 200$ so im definatly gona do that next. and i liek ur taillight, the clear taillights ive seen tend to be smoked but urs are cleaner, i dotn want them to look cheap like alot of clear taillights ive seen, where u get yours??
15" wheels are also on my list what tire width recomendation??
i also find that tinting on these black cars look great, but worried about takign a chance..
fender trim is debatable,
i thought i liked it until i saw some in person, looks terrible when the car isnt clean i find..
besides that maybe rear view mirror chrome?? hevent seen that on a black 126 yet. hard to tell.

From what I can see, you have a very nice example. Definitely upgrade to the stock (Euro) lights. [;)]

I dissent. Having a 1983 myself, I prefer the stock headlights. But if you buy euro, perhaps you could sell me one or more of your lights.

The only thing I noticed is your driver's side floormat. Looks cheap. Get a nice MB carpet mat. Mine say 300 SD on them.

http://www.katmac.com/index.html Some of the people went here for their euro lights. They aren't to expensive, and are sold in sets. They also sell the smoked tail lights.

I like the Lucky Charm on the grill, gives the car character [:)][:)]

That's a lucky charm?-and there was me thinking you've been sneaking up on cowboys and gotten a little too close.

yeah i kinda mike my horseshoe too, it came witht he car, and all i knwo about that thing is that every mercedes taxi in germany has a horseshoe on the grill. so im guessign thast what its for, the ex driver of my car, was a taxi driver from germany.

as as far as the euros i have a gues who buys mercedes to sell the pieces and hes got euro bosches for me for 200$ canadian, thast 160 us about..

as far as the smoked taillight, i realy dotn like them smoked, i prefere to find clear one.

as for clear corners what do you guys think? i think they look pretty good with black.

I kinda like the stock lights on that, they have somewhat of an aggressive look to them on a black car. You could always change out the sealed beams to the HID type with the clear lense as an alternative. Nice car though, looks to be in really good shape.
