Is it worth it to invest so much in a 200? ;)
If he enjoys doing the work, sometimes it's about the journey, not the destination 😉

No pics means it didn't happen :D:p

Seriously, these are pretty cool stuff you are doing, so kudos/props to you (y) . Will be great to see the before and after pics so we can all appreciate all the great work done to date.

Any plans for audio upgrade or are you OK with the stock system? How about wraps? Could find spots to wrap to give contrast and enhance look, no? But then, not seeing your car pics doesn't lend more to mod suggestions...

The car has the HK Logic system with NTG2.5 and that’s enough for me at least for now.
Wrapping I am not a fan of to be honest, the only spots I would consider it is on the grille winglets and middle of front spoiler but than it’s more or less impersonating a SLK55 which it’s not by a long run....

Take a look at my sig file below to see the wrapped bits on mine... I find these small contrasts breaks the monotone color a wee bit... but understand your point as well.
