My car when i get some money!

What do you guys think? i am planning on doing these to my Merc! Delocked relocated fuelcap and lowered! I cant get the wheels done though as i am crap on PS. Could one of you paint the wheels the same colour as the car but live the edge polished?
Any other ideas appreciated

1. Ditch the fender grille......

2. Paint the whole car black.....

3. Get the wheels polished or chromed........

get the 500E front fenders on there, and might as well transplant the 500E engine as well, and 500E front and rear bumpers

Good idea about the fenders but i aint going the engine way! See i wanna get a Mosselman twin turbo conversion on it! Just think of it.... more power and torque than the 500 from a 3.2( although i might do a 3.4 conversion first with forged pistons) and a BOV sound as well!!!! i reckon i ll get easily 450-500bhp from it!

OOOhh by the way... i dont like chromed wheels so there is no way i am getting chromed wheels! I think the AMG's look better and would only change them for a set of BBS split rims! I am going to paint them though in the same colour as the car and polish the rims edge! I think once i get my AP brakes on it will look awesome

I didn't mean get any chrome wheel. I love the AMG Monobloc wheels....chrome would look very classy on that car with a black paint job. And your idea of painting the center of the wheel is very good too!

you're right, there is a lot of potential in that engine, but you have to find the fenders

I spoke to a guy i know that works in a carbon fibre faricating companyand he told me he can get me the E500 fron wings done and a bonnet for a cool price. i might get the boot as well in carbonfibre. Also i spoke to a place in greece(where i am taking the car) and the guy told me he can supply me all the parts for a twin turbo conversion(all the bolt on stuff) for alot less than what i thought! All i need now it to get the internals and some kind of ecu to handle it! Any ideas?
