I have mini-television screens mounted along the rocker panels of my 124, plus a tropical fishtank full of Lionfish in the trunk. Sometimes the Lionfish die when I turn up the pimpin' audio system, but I just replace them as necessary. I have replaced all the MB tex with maroon silk trimmed with gold piping, and have replaced the shifter with a diamond-encrusted sceptre. Obviously, I have 20-inch spinners. The 20-inch spinners also have television screens imbedded in them.

OK ... I'm really more a stock girl. I do have a 1.5-inch silver-plated nametag on the glove compartment with an MB logo and "Bodhi" engraved in it, though. Blingish? ... nah. I pretty much want everything as original as possible, inside and out. It just looks cleaner, and more classic. These cars are beautiful ... why booger them up?

Somebody once posted the most horrible interior pic in this fluffy green stuff. It took me a week before I slept all the way through the night. [might have been MTUPower, I can't remember. saw it at the yard]
I also had one pic of an interior in what appeared to be flowery wall paper, but the great laptop crash of 3 weeks ago pretty much took care of that pic......

*Here are the gauges that tell me how my little lady is doin. Notice the speed reaches a mere 85 mph. The car will do about 164.5 MPH give or take a few. I dont know why mercedez didn't test the cars speed before making a speedometer. Notice the millage on this bad boy. 289,547 miles and still running strong. And YES, that is a clock you see, once again, pimps drive cars that have clocks where the Tacometer should be.*

Ummmmmmm yeah, i think it would run outa oil and take like 50 mins going down hill to reach that speed

in all seriousness, I do modify mine a bit as you know, but nothing drastic. Only newer MB wheels, euro lights and taillights usually.
