    Simply looks like it has 500E front wings. Certainly not wide body at the back.

    That's what I thought too - I like the seats, they must be worth quite a bit! But 33k for the car, seems pricey imo!

    Looks lovely but £33k? I don't know enough about them ...

    I cant help but think there is something not quite tickedy boo there. those front panel gaps/grille area don't look like £33k's work to me.

    I think my money would go on a nice 500E and a 190 16v

    I don't know if the "guy" has a C124 widebody, but I do know he has the only AMG C124 widebody kit in the world !!!
    He has a few wide C126's....

    He's a great guy and helped me with my replica C124 WB build...

    The car on EBAY appears to be more like something AMG Japan built..."widebody lite" with a face lift front on a GEN I aero kit...:thumb:
