Thanks, and...

This picture is posted not only to brag but also to get comments on what mods I can do to the car to make it look aggressive yet elegant. I'm a newbie to MB and certainly to mods, and so am looking to all the experienced folks in this Forum to help me out with what you think would go well.
Thanks in advance.
Warm regards,
Sesh

HI,

I think a avantgarde grille and a set of bigger wheels would make a big difference

And lowering it a litlle bit I think.

Bye.

Grille

OK I'm planning on putting in the AvantGarde grille - how much would it cost to obtain and install it for a 1999 C 230 Kompressor, and what would the best place to get it be?
Appreciate your help.
Sesh

I ordered my grill for my E320T from Precision Auto Designs, it lists on the catalog for US$299.00 plus $16.00 shipping. It is called the "600 look grill" (same design as the Avantgarde grill).
They can be contacted at www.precisionauto.com or 800-222-7253

Also try to get a quote from the PartsShop, they might be cheaper and they provide an excellent service.

Thanks, and...

Here's what I'm thinking of doing:
1. Clear blinkers: www.bekkers.com ($92)
2. AvantGarde Grille: www.bekkers.com ($98)
3. Eisenmann Exhaust: www.bekkers.com ($493)
4. Side Mirrors: www.hagususa.com ($459)

Hagus, I'm assuming, provides mirrors in the shade that I need.
Does that look OK? Would it be possible to get the same things cheaper?
Thanks!
Sesh

Beautiful car.
I have a 1995 C-class and I put on the avantgarde grill. I *think* I got mine from Bekkers. I think the insert is $99 and the whole assembly is $179. Check www.bekkers.com as previously mentioned. They might not have it listed, but they have it. Good luck! It definitly gives the car a more aggressive look... Here is what it looks like:
