    This was listed a while ago, obviously didn't sell. Not sure about the interior....

    Wow that looks amazing. LOVE the wide arches. Agree, not sure about the interior. Do you know how much this reached the last it was up?

    No, it was about 18 months - two years ago IIRC, just remember the pictures and the wide arches. Check out the dish on the wheels! Looks like it's got stretched tyres though, not a favourite of mine....

    BTW - looking at these wide arches. I'm thinking of doing a similar 'conversion' on my blue/black 124. I was gonna get the arches sorted anyway so thought it may be a good time to get the widebody effect! What are your thoughts?! Is it overly expensive and/or worth the hassle?! Will post something in the bodywork section too.

    Speak to Jaymanek, he has carried out a widebody conversion on a 560SEC, there's a thread about it on here somewhere. I'm sure he would be able to advise you on cost etc :)

    I quite like that, not so keen on the interior - what's going off on the top of the dash is that something to do with the sound system?

    I quite like widebodies, but that SL just looks wrong. With those wheels it looks like a skateboard.

    Does anyone have a rough figure for the work needed to turn an OEM MB to a wide body?

    Just curious..

    Not an expensive car, looks mean and moody, but up keep of this would be a different story, i guess the perfect buyers could be the couple who just won
    100 million on the euro millions, apparently they only played twice before.
