posting some pics of my new car (non porsche)

its a 2000 S500 sport with some mods

Lorinser bodykit with fenders then custom painted, was code40 black car.
2006 bixenon headlights.
2006 tail lights
updated grille
2006 gauge cluster
sport steering wheel (love it)
20in Giovanna Dalar wheels (235 and 285 tires)...looking to get some Lorinser wheels soon, or something that fits it better.
exhaust tips
just lowered it and redid the calipers in silver to match.
i also ordered clear side markers that should be here this week.

i will get some more pics if it once i change out the wheels.

Dang Mladen, S500? What, do you have a family now or something?!?

Great pix. You're right, those wheels really don't fit the car. And personally, I'm not a fan of chrome.

What in the world made you want to go the Mercedes route?

there really hasn't been much photoshop to be honest, it was just under weird light at night and then started raining lol.

but as far as benz route, i just wanted something super luxurious and not have to shift for a while, and then if i get the need to rip it out, or more power, theres always my trusted R1.

but yeah, def not a fan of chrome either, but in person they dont look THAT bad, they would look killer powdercoated flat black, but i think ill just get some different ones and sell these.

i also ordered replacement mirror LED turnsignals, those should look really sweet on there

ohhh, and backseats the size of those boxster sure come in handy with the ladiez

Nice family car!

Going from a great handling, nimble Porsche to a powerhouse cab in the M3, to a large boathouse family sedan?! Are you in your 60s already? Well, j/k. Whatever floats your boat. Good thing you have the bike to satisfy that performance thirst.

hahaha, thats a freggin VAN that passed by, killed my pic, but kinda looks ok too.
i sold the M3...didnt like that at all.

i just needed something super comfy, and this does it, bike definitely gets my blood rushing thats for sure, after that a nice comfy benz sure does the job.

here we go again...porsche was the only car that i kept long, all the other cars only lasted few short months hahaha
