I reckon they'd make more money selling a kit to convert that shaped E class back to the older W124 front - looks much more like a merc and less like a Ford Scorpio :D

I have seen these conversions before -w202-203 etc.

However, this IMO is one of the better ones. As a whole, it does not work, the rear is wrong, but look at it side on or front 3/4 and the w210 front with the coupe side looks great.

Hmmmm w210 coupe.

Maybe be with their CLK rear it would work.....

I agree with Andy, these 'make your car look like a later model' bodykits are probably the best (most efficient) way to destroy a car's re-sale value, short of being involved in an RTA.

For sure. For any aftermarket/custom modification this is true and this has to be the ultimate!

I remember seeing similar conversions for the SL! R129 -> Current!

Now who would even entertain such a conversion on such a car! :eek:

Best avoided I would say.

I think it looks good, the 18" wheels would influence my thoughts though.
