- Paint, the car had original paint until 2 years ago when i had it painted, i wanted the deepest black you could get and i got it. the cars clear coat is a new clear coat only used by Mercedes-Benz i think so far, its self healing clear coat, its sun activated. the car had no rust before i painted it i have pics to prove that.

- Fiberglass MTech2 front with splitter, Mtech2 side skirts and rear all done by Eurostyle. a real Mtech 2 spoiler plastic, the manufacture date i forget what it said but it the year was 1988. the car also comes with a badboy eyebrow if you want it.

Performance
-The car makes 366WHP last time i had it dyno'd at 16~17psi. if its a 17% drivetrain loss (witch i might be wrong but thats what i found anyway) its about 428 flyweel hp


I'm sure i'm missing lots of things but anyway, the car runs great, very fast as you can imagine, i'm only selling because i need the money and dont want two cars anymore.

i know i've spent over 20,000$ on this car not including months worth of time but i know how much its worth so im not going to ask like 15000 for it, so the price is 87000 OBO as is. if i get to keep my sound system. if your interested in the sound system we can work something out. thanks for looking
