Are you talking about Scott Longston? Is he coming back on a more frequent basis?

That's General Longston! He has been working on other covert activities and has orders to return to MBshop but being a General it's optional, but we have hope.

Reality is so subjective..... How do we determine who's reality we are going to accept ? Now, a Realty Brigade, that would be something concrete..

I checked one thread where he yelled at snibble for considering gold trim... seemed a little harsh, and it looked like he could use more tact, but I haven't met him yet personally and I'll save any judgement untill then.

I'd yell harshly at ANYONE considering gold trim!

gold trim's not bad on a white car (which he had). I've seen it, and on white benz's it's not bad looking. I think he went a little off the handle on him.

Gotta side with Scott on that old thread. The Honda/etc. crowd were VERY into gold trim at the time, and quite frankly, it looked goofy on a Mercedes.

I would never put it on my car, but on some cars it looks ok! Obviously other people agree with me or it wouldn't be an option.

I don't think it is an option on very many cars...It's usually aftermarket stuff. Very tacky. Especially a mix of gold AND chrome. Yuck.
