Finally got it done. The wing is on.







I love how it looks.

That paint is dope.
I guess you have to be a masochist to have paint like that and still drive it.

The nicest 300 CE I've ever seen. Now, install a 211 E55 or twin-turbo SL 600 engine and then it will be as fast as it looks.

Beautiful car. I don't usually like wings, but that one conforms nicely to the car's lines. I like that paint. How do you get it to look so lustrous?

I suppose so. The lower flare looks like a separate piece in the foto. Like a valance. Is the bumper and the flare all one piece? I'm referring to the rear BTW.

Kidding about the wing of course! And I'm agreeing with the others...getting too nice to drive...yet you park it in the street!

That is insanely cool, not just the wing I mean the whole package. Love those black monoblocks especially.

the paint is new within the last 2 months. I have not even waxed it yet, only hand washed it a few times. Trying to let the paint get some extra cure time before I start laying on the wax.

The rear bumper is the AMG GEN 1 bumper, as are the sideskirts and front bumper.

I parked on the street for the pics then parked it.

The wheels are not monoblocks.. They are AMG Aero 1's Also known as the AMG Hammer Wheels.

Thanks for all the compliments, you guys sure have good taste.
