Your car looks the business, I'm sure you can find some more mods to do still :D

Are you planning on having the side repeater covers properly blended or leaving as is? Also, is it riding higher on the left front than the right or was it parked on a hill?

Love the 210 mirrors on a 202, suits the car really well :)

Its slightly higher on one side due to having a new spring fitted a couple of years ago.

I guess if the rust returns on the wings I may look into getting new wings and filling the holes in...

I think you can buy the US spec wings with no indicator hole if you're going for new ones mate.

Your cars looking fab now Karl loving the mirrors and the temporary wing covers to hide the duplicate indicators. Have you connected the GPS antenna to anything or is it just for looks, it does give the car a very high spec look to it. In terms of remaining mods maybe OEM xenons with wash wipes or side blinds ?

Thanks for the comments! :)

The GPS ariel is just an empty shell at the moment :eek: which ive sprayed 744 body coloured.

The late US spec had them for the OEM carphones, maynot be to everyones tastes but I like the look :thumb:

+1 ;)

It looks fantastic from a distance though, very nice...

Like the matt black effect on the rear bumper. Did you spray that? If so, what type of paint did you use and how did you prep it?

I've been tempted to do something like that to the AMG bumper on mine but was looking at Matt Vinyl instead of spraying in case I din't like it.

Check my thread from when I got it sprayed:

I had it done by the bodyshop at no extra cost :bannana:

OEM Xenons and wash wipe sounds like a plan to me:bannana:
