I'd love to get a set of updated door panels for my car but blue is non existent in that style. I'm considering going to an all black interior just so I can have them and the build in subwoofers.That and the updated nose too, I would love to get a new hood and the lights.. oh and the door moulding and everything.

I pretty much want an E300D but with an om603!

Do you mean a '95 (W124) or later (W210) E300D? I would think that an OM603 would drop into a 1995 chassis fairly easily. That would make a great car, especially given the big fuel tank they put in the '95 along with the complete set of W124 updates.

Careful what you wish for John, ... I'm looking at another coach in SC, with lots of open basement storage.
