    I have just got my car from the body shop. The wing mirrors were looking a bit tatty and the doors and rear bumper needed some attention.

    I went for a painted finish on the wheels as before so they survive the winter. The car has covered 159000 miles now but is looking good for it.

    Looking great. I have just acquired a set of those alloys for our estate. Like you I have gone the powder coated route rather than the polished rim.

    Thanks for the comments, I was really pleased with the work. I have been tempted to sell the car a few times but it is still with me. W124s are difficult to replace in your heart. I would like an E500 but seating for three in the back is useful to me.

    I think the AMG badge is original. I bought the car in 2003 and it was fitted then and this is the only style I have seen fitted to these 93-95 cars. The rear spoiler was also on the car when I bought it. I am perhaps less keen on that but not enough to remove it.
