Facelift antenna on order, should arrive tomorrow. I've started to look around for 18" or possibly 19" wheels. I'm pretty fond of the 19" AMG rims on my GLA and think that the 5-spoke black/brushed style might look good on the R171. For the time being I'll most likely just wear out these tyres and enjoy the ride this summer and make plans for mods and upgrades for next summer.

Just a heads up, I started with 19's when I got my 2005 SLK 350, 3 years ago, changed to a staggered 18's set up and there is a difference in ride comfort. FYI.

And I started from 18s and ended up with 19s and they are fabulous... haven't noticed much difference in ride comfort or discomfort going from 18s to 19s... but then, I drive same way - aggressive :p

Aggressive? An SLK owner? Surely not. And here’s me thinking we’re all like ‘driving miss Daisy’! 🤣
