    Here you go :) Quite like the quad pipes though! But don't like the chrome around the rear lights!

    Don't like the badges, and the chrome around the lights, but apart from that it looks great.:)

    Today I followed a car with a CLK200 badge, oddly it was on a 4 door saloon. Does such a thing exist? The car looked smaller than a C class.

    I’ve seen a few C classes that they’ve badged as a CLK... coupes are more desirable so if you badge it as such the punters will be all over it like a rash (Allegedly):rolleyes:

    I just like the look of the colour Steve, I know there are serious issues with the colour but it is still a great looking colour. A friend of mine's brother had to have his re-painted last year and it was a complete back to metal paint job, he was without his car for weeks, it now looks beautiful and he loves it. :):)

    I know what you mean. I originally ordered my 207 in Fire Opal but changed to Iridium Silver before it was built.

    An Eco Sport too.

    Yes like the colour but far to many rubbish badges on it. Just spoils it imho.
