Here you go - my latest member of the family - like any new dad I am so proud of my natural beautiful baby - even though possibly compared to others she maybe a tad ugly?! At the moment though having only had her a month or so I love her with all my heart! ❤

LOL, that car of yours is absolutely mint especially considering her age (y) (y) (y)

Did you see that Silver 320 2000 year model I bought cheap for R&D purposes ???
Serious structural rot as well as rear wheel-arches and bonnet ;) I've been welding it up in spare time since the beginning of April 🤣 , almost finished it now ;)

For anyone interested and doesn't follow my V8 Project thread, the whole sorry saga starts here post #1476 ....


Then hop to post # 1494 and the further we go the worse it got :(

Light at the end of the tunnel now, since yesterday there is only one (left) inner wheelarch lip to weld in now, and then it will be time for filler and paintwork (rear outer arches have been replaced), service it and get it MOT'd and I can start the 7 G Tronic Conversion R&D ;)

Just 14k miles silver Brabus r171 full spec factory options.. Park sensors. Electric heated scarf seats. Auto Climate control. Bilstein sports suspension package with Eibach springs. Harmon karman multimedia sound system. Spare wheel/compressor unused. Even has the original Nokia mobile phone in the center console with the protective plastic screen cover still on it unused. Rare like this for a 16 year old motor car. Best drive so far 300km through Thai twisy mountain roads above the clouds with the roof down and the 4 tip Brabus exhaust note in my ears. Pure magic

Many thanks 👍 I too was amazed at how good it seemed for the age but it had lots going for it - 2 previous owners from new and full service history from the day it came out of the factory to the day I bought it!

First job I did was take it to my friend at the local garage who I had check it over - structurally sound - I had checked the previous MOT’s online beforehand and not one had mentioned any structural problems underneath - unlike quite a few I saw.

Having seen your project I duly tip my hat to you - no way do I have the time, skills or patience to take on something like that 😀👍

Here's my pride and joy, 2005 SLK350, 6 speed manual, 120k km's, Cubanite silver with beige interior, factory AMG bodywork, sports suspension, 18" wheels, Piecha power converter (wich I love btw), otherwise bone stock, we went to the black forest, Germany, for a midweek, the short gears all of the sudden made sense going through the hills and upside hill turns, love the sound when revving it up to redline, fresh MOT and no sign of subframe rot or engine trouble, she's a keeper ;)

Admins. I’m still not sure how this voting thing works.
It says:
Votes for the month’s winner will be tallied by the number of “Likes” your post has on the last day of the month.”
This suggests to me that I ought to wait till the last day, look at all the cars and then cast just one single vote. My arithmetic isn’t very good however, so please correct me.

I'd be assuming that ".. on the last day of the month.." should be ".. by the end of the last day of the month.." ?

And given that this is an international forum, there should be a Time Zone.. UTC+/- whatever :unsure:

Time zones ARE an issue and PTB had been made aware during the last session.

Campaigning for votes can be a disqualifier.... best to not do it and let members decide by their own "Like" votes.. (y)

OK-tough competition already I see but here is my entry.

Only mods are wheels and tires - the car had some horrible replacements on it when I bought so went to Tire Rack and ordered new wheels with tires.

Other than that bought glass windscreen for behind seats.

My favorite repeat memory is the first warm sunny day of every year with the top down, the car always turns heads!!!
