Very cool, I love the look of the car.
I have been looking at the Rieger kit myself but am still not sold on the grille but your pics of your car make a strong case.

Could you provide a bit more info on the ASP pulley kits like how much power they added and where you got them from.

Beautiful car, but I'm still not sold on the "F1" style grill. I saw one that look a lot like yours but used a single "line" blacked out front grill - kinda like the SL's and it looked really amazing.

Yeah at first I didn't like the grill... BUT the RIEGER is a great quality bumper and top notch... also its affordable compared to other tuner parts... thats why I chose it...

THE ASP Pulley is a MUST-DO. You will easily get 15+ horsepower from it and a big TQ increase... car feels unlike a benz afterward =) (Thats a good thing... these 230s stock need some more pull).

I got the ASP Pulley from aspracing.com... Its the best pulley and very durable! You get a 300 dollar core charge back too.

Haha thanks for sure. I know this forum is all R171s but the R170s gotta get some recognition too!

I wish I could go to Vegas though... but funds are tight for this college student =( (Also cus the woman would want to go and that makes expenses x2). LOL.

Did you change out your stock back bumper? If so what did you go with?

Also, do you have any comments on where to get turning signal side mirrors? I have a 98 and unfortunatley we are not that fortunate.

Thanks a lot.

Great looking car and great photos! Of course I love black. The larger wheels/tires and projector headlights really catch my eye.

I hope you are enjoying your ride since you first posted these pics.

I disagree with you. The R170 is a lot more rectilinear which is the opposite of the curvier thus more feminine R171.

I do agree that his car looks very sexy.
