Default Mercedes W210 Wagon Project

Here is my wagon. New to forum but not new to the stance culture. Little background on the wagon, its a 2001 E320 and was my moms car. I always joked about taking it to college and now here I am in LA with it. My goal is simple, get all parts back to working order and make it factory fresh. Springs are going on this weekend and I hope to get a set of AMG 3 piece monoblocks soon. And then dialing in the stance. I guess ill let the pictures do the talking.

Just cleared the headlight today. Turned out way better than I expected and really freshened up the look.

Let me know what you SW guys and gals think. Im open to suggestions on mods as well as rims that would go well with the car.

THANKS!

very good start, but i think you gotta remove the sticker bombed roof rack, just to keep the classy look...

really want to see what's next here, lot of potential!

Wchoy: but yes, it is a consensus. You are now in a better level than the JDM Ricers... get rid of the stickers.

Looks good. I have a set of AMG Aeros waiting to be straightened out and then put onto the car. I wish i had more time to work on the car but i have too much work... Prolly gonna cut front coils and put in the rear lowering coils.

what are rear lowering coils? didn't your car come with the SLS rear since it's a 4matic?
