    Whats also intersting is theres a W202 in that gallery with what looks like BIRDS EYE MAPLE WOOD TRIM although could be a DIY gloss black to make it look like piano black wood !

    They don't flow with the car at all and I can't see how the back end can have any suspension travel? Also the front bumper looks awful.

    All imo.

    Someone is doing a wide arch kit for the 500E on 500ecstasy, his work is very good indeed but the finished product looks ridiculous.

    Each to their own though, that car does look like a quality job.

    Dave!

    I'm opposite.. I think that looks spot on!

    Really liking that wide arch look.

    210/208 style front wing rubbing strips and HID lamps without washers. It's all in the details :)
    I've seen Japanese C43s with birdseye maple before but can I find the trim code for it? :rolleyes:

    Ahh thanks Gurpz you put them on. Yes I think it looks very beefy, definitely an interesting take on the C43! I'll stick with my standard arches though thanks.

    Also keeping in the body-mod vein, have a look at the C43 on Autotrader at the moment at £8650, its got a Chrysler 300C style grille! errrrr

    Has he tried to make it look like the black series C63 with the wheel set up and arch rolling? It does look really nice and aggressive :rock: :rock: I wonder how much the front wheels rub though.
