How come you put 1972 W108 Mercedes hubcaps on it?

Has it cleared DOT/EPA?

Someone was selling a B-Class Diesel on Craigslist for like $12k, it had around 19xxx miles, but it wasn't titled for sale in the U.S.

If it was the same color as mine, I'd totally have bought it, and just swapped plates and bet on not getting in a traffic accident.

Is it street-legal?

I thought no one would fall for it. My thought was " Mercedes wouldn't paint a car an awful color like this, in this century"

I think those aveos are pretty nice looking.

I have a real soft spot for little economy cars.
