    Thankyou for the warm welcome guys,I have to thankyou for your kind comments,
    At the moment she has the 18" alloys on,but I want to get a set of the original 17" amg wheels she came with, As I want to return her to OE looks,But that will be after christmas and new year,(unless someone wants to do a deal,lol)
    When I bought her I never really thought about a Mercedes,But I am a convert to the Three pointed star,lol

    Thanks for the compliment,:)
    And as to the manual gearbox it was just a wee thought, I dont think I could be bothered with all the hassle that would go along with it,lol

    Pleased to hear it, my dear old mum has a 209 200K manual and I think it ruins a lovely car but I'am biased, only one of my current fleet of 5 mercs is manual and that is a 1994 410D camper!

    I used to be dead against Automatics but I have a 300zxtt and it was my first auto and then I bought this,(and I am a sucker for v6 engines) and I have to admit the autobox in the merc is an amazing piece of kit,
    My plans for the Merc, are simple but I hope that it will help make my Clk stand out a bit from every other silver clk around my area, I would like either the standard 17" Amg alloys that came with the car , Or a set of fan type mercedes alloys that I have seen,and I really like them, I have seen a pre-facelift fitted with the facelift clocks ,and I was wondering hat would be involved with that?
