    Thanks for the invite Koolvin, but why did you take so long to tell me... <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt='???'>

    Anyway, im here now and i have a lot of valuable contributing to do!!

    Would like to go through history but would take a V. Long time...

    Basically, cars i have sitting in my drive and on the street at the moment.

    CL600 (1995) - 20&quot; alloys and a few other bits here and there
    ML270 CDI (2001) - bullbar on front, custom sidesteps, 18&quot; AMG 5 spokes
    190 2.6 (1991) Standard
    190D (1987) 16&quot; Duschalet alloys, late mouldings and late trim, lowered 35mm
    500SEL (1981) - mint, with 3.0 multivalve diesel engine transplanted! And azurite blue respray.
    E300 cabriolet (1994) 18&quot; AMG replica's lowered 30mm(i think)

    Many other temp cars that i drive too

    We're looking into buying a S320CDi soon.

    I am very knowledgable about many MB issues and look to be helping you guys out <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>

    I believe geoff is on here as well, hows that CE coming on??

    So, bye for now &nbsp;<img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    Well, the main reason is i am in the trade, with my dad owning the company i work at.

    many may have heard of us... Mercman??

    dont wanna advertise unless requested for info, but we do genuine parts for all models at cheap prices for basically the whole of the UK, especially south england.

    Tis' indeed.

    That must have been a few years back...

    We quickly outgrew that premisis and now conduct our business from southampton, with delivery drivers delivering to london daily and by courier to many other places, as far as north scotland etc.

    The CE is coming on fine, got the tint, the Milli Miglia 17s on 235 rubber, nearly all the update lights.
    Its still riding &quot;high&quot;, lowering may take a little while.... but the ICE will go in first, I may not need to lower with new springs <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'> &nbsp;<img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>

    Sounds good geoff, knowing your ICE installs, you may have to forget lowrering and actually higher the car <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>

    Does the tine look good, im not too sure about it, but may suit the colour...

    I love the tint. It dose look good on the colour, although the words &quot;pimp&quot; or &quot;dealer&quot; are often muttered by colleagues....

    Hmm , i thought a coupe of that age would have been an S600 coupe and not a CL600.

    geoff, you didnt notice that we have taken the 18's off the 124 cabrio and put 17's on in their place, the 18's at that ride height were just too uncomfortable...but looked ace!!

    the 17's are a lot better, speedo is more accurate, ride is softer, tyres are cheaper... <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>
