    I'd like to have some subtle tints on my CLK convertible but I'm not sure if tinted windows suit silver cars. When chosen as an option from new they look great but I've seen so many terrible aftermarket efforts. I'd be interested to know your thoughts...or if anyone has any photos even better!

    Track rod causing steering wheel vibration?

    Went to get my front wheels balanced on the weekend due to a steering wheel wobble between 60 and 80 mph.
