    You know MB still market the EVO?

    But if you are limited to the options above, for MB look I choose AMG 5 SPOKE 203

    From the other wheels my vote would be OZ Superturismo.

    None of those wheels suit the 201 very much apart from the kahn's...

    What i look for when suiting cars to wheels is the general shape and especially the shape of the arches/wings, with this particular car, square edge wheels look good, normally a small dish helps them to look superb, something like the old AMG series of wheels, especially from the 124 model, i'll see if i can finds some pics for you with the car on the wheels. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>
