    So after 3 years of ownership I've finally got her the way I want her, Brabus d5 tuning box, factory fresh, lowered tastefully, totally mint. Now to drive and enjoy and keep her clean. Not bad for 2006 108k[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Very nice! Your work has paid off.
    I know I'm biased but the shape of the 211 is timeless.

    When I saw he'd got her exactly the way he wanted after only 3 years, why did I think 43 years on and still trying - but then I realised he was talking about fettling his car and I was thinking about fettling SWMBO!!:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Looks very nice. I have always liked the look of the upright merc badge/emblem on the front. Look better than the flat ones imo.

    It doesn't matter whether it is a Merc of yesteryear or a modern Merc, they have a unique look and feel about them that no other car manufacturer can emulate, and when you take that car and give it the TLC it deserves, it shines.

    And nothing shines better than a proper Mercedes silver when the Sun hits it at just the right angle.

    Nice pics.

    I have to admire the op in having the tenacity to put so much effort into a car.

    It does look superb and has plainly had love lavished on it.

    I like to look after my cars but it is at times an effort also bare in mind I purchased my last few cars new and are garaged.

    Well done now hope for a period of dry weather so the car can be enjoyed.

    very nice - the wheel refurb, brembo brakes and debadge have really worked well.
    The wheels really suit the car - would fit a set on the W212 in a heartbeat if they fitted...:thumb:

    Agreed on that there is something special about the view out of the front with a three pointed star like a gunsight on the road shame its now gone " another good bit of yesterday " gone due to regulations , regulations and regulations but as they say nostalgia aint what it used to be :)
