    looks like they've dropped the ride height a tad too much  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':p'>

    I had a set of those rims on my old Corrado, they're not Anterra's, they are Momo Arrows...

    Its not a Benz alloy, they look awfull!!!

    Also, as it has chrome trim around it, indicates it mut be an Elegance???

    To right!! &nbsp;

    A car without chrome is like a country without Mercedes!!

    Especially on the right colour cars-tends to lok better on dark cars, and superb on azurite blue cars!! <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

    in my opinion the only thing that should be chrome on a w202 is the Grill and stars....

    chrome bumper inserts, side inserts and handles look tacky (in my opinion) not a sporty look at all....

    Pnsji went a bit further - Looks much more classy!!!

    K.,

    All I can say is....

    It wasn't me <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':p'>

    hehe I think I prefer my stock MB sport alloys to those. I also think that an OD on chrome trimmings doesn't suit Vivianite green as a colour. I'm d@mn glad my car doesn't have that chrome extra around the rubbing strip.

    is very much down to preference...

    I like chrome on the right colour...think it looks classy, but not sporty...whereas, without, looks more sporty, less classy... <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

    I have seen them on there, but some arch work was done, and it wasn't lowered too far...Kinda looks silly, on a car that small, but looks cool on a CL...

    19's go on relatively easy, you cant lower it to the floor, and have to watch the width, but they do go on with no arch mods...

    18's are my choice on a C202...easy fit, and can be lowered substantially.
