Been out the front with a freshly cleaned car and camera this afternoon....
Love the view from the font of your place, oh and the car looks shiny too!
Thanks. It's the Beauly Firth, just north of Inverness.
We're actually on the NC500 route - which we might have done one or two times.
The Beauly Firth is a lovely part of the world and your car looks very shiny.
Bet it’ll rain tomorrow now you’ve cleaned it
... Yep, it's forecast for up here tomorrow, -, always does
It's got to the point that I'm fitting Partner's winter wheels on her A210 tomorrow!!!
That's just lovely - both, the scenery and the car!
Which reminds me - one other mod, I did on my old car - painted the inside of the grille star ... well, Clive did - when doing the full re-spray and calipers (in black, before someone shouts at me again ).
Just been looking your images again.
It suits your anthracite colour very well, but I can't decide whether it would suit mine given the bright silver. I might fiddle around with some black vinyl and do one of my 'studies' to see if I like it in the flesh as it were.
Yes, I think you're right - it was painted inside in the same Meteor Grey as the body, and looked good, but for your silver car it's probably better as it is - looks very refined in the close up above.
I am however always looking for ways in which to make my cars more individual without going away from the 'factory look' if you know what I mean.
Yes, I recently reverted back to OEM headlights' appearance, after having custom DRLs on, for almost three years, however I did modify both fogs and turn indicators to give them dual function, so they work as DRLs now too.
I don’t think the original W168 A-class received the recognition it deserved. Maybe because the sandwich floor was never really exploited as intended (to house hydrogen tanks or battery packs) or more likely because of the moose test. IMHO it was one of Mercedes most pioneering models when it was launched.
I think they got the styling right too, it looks great now ~20 years later. IMHO it’s crying out for a Beetle/500/Mustang style modern interpretation of what has become a classic design.
Couldn't agree more.
Ive always been aware of the snobbery that has gone on in the past when I had our A190 & A210 back 2004.
They are also like a tardis inside yest their footprint is so small compared to alot of faceless modern cars.
I agree about the styling If I squint when I look at alot of modern euro boxes I can't one from the other.
