    I decided to start a new thread, rather have a pic-heavy single thread :)

    So this thread follows on from this one:

    The car is still a standard engine'd E320 Coupe, but now has just over 99,000 miles on the clock.
    THe car was severely delayed by the bodyshop's work, and then a nightmare getting my Merc dealer to repair the gearbox under it's parts warranty, but she's done!
    I got her back this afternoon from a full valet and machine polish, and (in my opinion) she looks stunning! :D

    After bodyshop - new Carat Duchatelet bumper from Talbir

    The 99,000 mile mark - documented!

    Exhaust installed (not to everyone's taste, I know, but I think it looks good :p)

    The interior with the new steering wheel (Thanks again to fnkhan68). Also note the updated Road Angel, since my original photo set. It has been hard wired in to the car

    The subwoofer. It's actually one active woofer, with the other 2 being passive. It will eventually have a false wall trimmed in front of it :)

    Recently, I thought it would be good idea to get some better night time shots of the E320 Coupe. So I was having a play with some settings on my Canon IXUS 75, and (having forgot my tripod) I had to do with street floors and walls....these were the results :)
    In no way professional, but it's worth having a play in emtpy Norwich city streets. For one photo, I even had a police woman stop her car, because she thought my car had been abandoned :D :eek:
