    There is a yellow C180 turbo that gets serviced at my local stealership, it's been around for a good couple of years now, sorry to disappoint!

    It's this monstrosity:

    That is very "Yellow" - but I quite like it

    Would have preferred it with something a little more subtle in the bodykit dept though. I wonder if that snow plough actually works ?

    The back is just as bad:

    apparently the guy runs it on practically zero boost because he is frightened of damaging the engine. In total he spent something like 20 grand in mods.

    First Mosselman C180? I remember reading the article on that yellow MB and I think it was custom not Mosselman.

    Nick please confirm if you can.

    Why does it have M3 wing mirrors on it too......there's only one mirror mod that looks good on a merc....bling bling!!!

    I personaly think that car should be stripped of its badges..... or they should at least be gold plated so they fit in!

    lol funny that the very same disgusting car is being used at the moment for our own Logo.

    I must say, I preferred the old one anyway.
