In 2 weeks the 6er will be out *th-up* , unfortunatly there isnt much space left in the shop and I have a few cars coming in on Monday :( that need major frame work.

But here are some pics of the current car.

I havent though about that yet but I might but I might not, I do know that it needs a euro conversion and if money allows an AMG kit. Im also looking into getting more power out of it so it looks like im getting an intercooler, larger turbo and sending the injector pump out to allow more fuel, Stage 2 intake and full exhaust, But it wont be till next summer and by doing these mods it will drop fuel economy by 150K per tank so that the bad news *thmbsdwn* , the good news is it'll cost around $7000 to buy the upgrades and I'll get approx 250-275HP at the wheels. *th-up*

Interesting. I have thoughts to get myself older diesel Benz for everyday commute (also in need of 4-door), will like to see how yours is working out.

The diesel is awsome for everyday driving as long as you can handle the turbo lag, but it does haul ass once you get it above 60kph and on the highway its even better. The car gives an average 850K per tank which cost about $50. I'll bring it by and let you test drive it when I come down.

It would be great. PM me here or in the other forum or e-mail me when you'd like to see my 6-er.
With snow/salt on I'll put it in garage and insurance will be off.
