Perfect! Somewhere on this forum, or another, I posted about my local body shop wanting $1000 to paint the lower skirts, and that's if I took them off and brought them in!

Do you know what your shop would charge?

I have a couple of places to try for a group buy. More than likely I'll get on it right after the holidays. I want to get a rough number (before the holidays) of full body kits, front spoilers only, etc.

Hi guys.

This is mine. Bought it 3 years ago in Jan. All I've done to it is add a chrome muffler. 300CE-24 Sportline, 5 speed close ratio stick shift.

KaRaKaN,

Thanks dude

Chaser234,

I will defenitely recommend the monotone look for early W124's. It's one of the best upgrades you can get. Mine was done 5 years ago by a professional bodyshop in Mexico City. They used a very popular european paint technology called STANDOX
( German ).

You have to be careful about who is doing the job on your car. They need to know what they are doing and they have to be familiar with "flexing agents" to add to the paint in order to avoid it peeling from the surface or cracking.

Craig,

This shop that I am taking about quote me $1,100 for painting front and rear bumpers and lower mouldings ( side skirts ), and the price included all dismantling / installation job done by them.
I trust them because the owner is also an exotic car collector / fanatic and their quality is excellent.

About your source for bodykits, do they only carry AMG ? The add on spoiler lip from WALD on the picture enclosed also takes my sleep away. Let me know what do you think about it.

Neil:

A 5 speed Sportline coupe! Heaven! But what are the orange triangles on your main light lenses?

Ernesto:

Great looking pics, as always. Are you going to get the Wald spoiler?

I just posted my pics on the 500E Euro light install thread, but links are cheap, so here they are again!

Hello John !

Yes, I am looking forward to get a front spoiler for the E420, still do not know which one. I really like the Wald but it's a little expensive for only an add-on lip. Just looking around at this time, but if I find a good opportunity I will take it. Same thing with the sportline suspension for the 300E. I have heard so many good comments about the ride on your car that I need to have the same set up in mine, but I will keep also the H&R springs.

You car looks great with the E500 eurolights. I didn't know that you were replacing them. Did you installed the city lights yet, if so please let me know which kind of bulbs are you using ?

Hey, Ernesto, you have immaculate taste! The Wald spoiler and ground effects are my favorite, too. It seems that most people go with the AMG, but I like the Wald. I just think it's a little more tasteful and upscale.

I also mentioned it before when I was at your house last, but I think the complete Sportline upgrade package with springs, dampers, bushings, swaybar would be very very cooool on your 300E.

BTW, when are we gonna do the grill?

Afshin says you are the only one who knows what part # to order.

Are we gonna order a dealer MB part, or possibly the one from Eris?

Lemme know...

Oh, here is a picture of mine, but since this was taken, I've painted the impact strip on the front and rear bumpers and added Euro headlights, but here goes anyway:

Mike- I dig it! Looks great with those wheels. Now all you have to do is front spoiler and slam it! haha. BTW, looks like you washed it since the ///benzsport GTG. Can't have clean rims, and dirty ride.

Ernesto- I don't have an AMG connection, or a body kit connection. I was going to find out who is interested and shop around to a few places and strike the best deal I can. Wish I did have a connection.

Craig

Dr. AMG,

Nice wheels... when did you get those You car looks so nice clean and with those new shoes. $ 20 could mean a huge difference.

Craig,

Ok, let's look around together for the best deal on the bodykits. Keep me posted about what you find. Did you liked the WALD add-on lip ?

Omegabenz,

When are you installing your new AMG bumpers ?
