Romeo291 2009 Mercedes C300 W204 Build
Compliments of romeo291 @ http://mbworld.org
Lets start off my build thread by saying good bye to my old build: 1998 Lexus LS400
Had a lot of help and ideas from members on this forum. I wanted to do an LS460 next, but it was out of my budget, so I decided to go Euro with an entry-level C-class. Found a used one for a good price, only problem was that it was already modified.
Here's how it looked when I first got it
I quickly ditched the canards on the front, wasn't my style:
These headlights are aftermarket, but I really like them:
Mocking up eyebrow idea, the attempt is to give it that 2012+ W204 look. Originally, I was planning on making the eyebrow out of metal after mocking it up so I can weld it to the hood, but I wasn't too keen on it, think I'll just get 2012+ headlights and modify my OEM hood to fit instead.
Look at me laidddd out:
Ditched the OEM side mirrors for the Arrow style mirrors in black. It has a puddle light on it too, very nice mod IMO. I also added a wide-angle blue tinted lens with flashing red arrow blinkers.
Latest upgrades: D2 Air bags, Ridetech Management, K-Sport End Links (this is needed so that the sway bar doesn't hit the control arms)
I need carbon fiber side skirts. Might have to make some custom ones. I added the chrome door moldings back on there. No idea why people take them off, they're so nice
Next up is the 2012 Front bumper conversion. I really like the DRL LEDs on the newer Mercedes, so I finally got all the parts together. Another thing I really like is how the front bumpers have that extra definition with it sticking out on the left and ride sides:
