I think he's just not very smart up top. That is a lot of wasted money.

I always said I prefer the rear end of a 170 but love the front of a 171 so perhaps this guy felt the same and done something about it Ha Ha. I also hate the front end of the 172 so don't know what im gonna do when its time for me to get a newer SLK.

It actually looks decent. I don't agree with the rims, though.
