I HATE YOU ALL! ( I kid!)

J/k I don't hate you all. I dont hate nobody. But it's quite an eye catching subject no?

I wanted to share with all of you some pictures I have taken last week of my car, right after the nice 100 dollar detailing job was given to her. (it ruined my bank account though )

Enjoy!

Nice!

Had to do a double-take there Dr. - those clear corners and Avant Garde grilled looks just like mine Then I remembered it's not sunny here, my car has it's beater winter rims on (though they are MB OE), and with the recent rain, mine doesn't look nearly as clean!

Very nice car and photography skills! What camera/setting did you use?

Regards,
- Ryan

Not bad...

...for a Francophile (j/k dude).

Enjoy, $100.00 for a detailing job is fairly inexpensive, it looks like thhey did a good job.

Diesel dude, you got pics of yours?

Benzsoman, rarely is my car THAT close to the ocean. I'm usually 2 miles out, so that helps. But the detailing is to remove the salt deposits of course

And yes, 100 bucks isn't bad at all. When I see what Alon's dad pays fors his ::shivers::

Where did you get the Avantgarde grill? Off a Euro W124?

If they have them for a W126, my dad and I might be interested.

Thanks godfather. Wait a minute...!
I'm gonna save for an AMG kit. I came REALLY close to having them painted though! I gave the key to the shop and I was about to leave then I thought.. mmm nah let's do it another time. (partly b/c he wanted 300 bucks instead of 150.)

I got it from www.bekkers.com $127 shipped if I recall right. It's basically a cut off S600 grill. IT was flimsy but I adjusted it and it's all good! I don't think they make anything for the 126.. (what is it ? Older S?)
