I sincerely like your sense of humor and good nature on all of this...you're exactly right!! It's been going on since time began!! Even in the animal kingdom, there are all sorts of ritualistic attention-grabbing behaviors for those the right age to start mating, seeing who they can interest! The older ones (the "been there/done that" set) just sort of sit and watch, probably amused.

Its all for fun. At the end of the day that is why we are all here because we have a passion for our cars whether the same or different, we all end up at the same place to share and give advice!

I love the hellaflush sence. Makes the car look so clean and fresh. I am saving up for a good stance but I gotta be conservative since the w204 is my daily.

The car is on air ride so you could have a "better" driving experience. I know air ride does not compare to a coil over suspension but it fits the gap between road scrapping low on coils and stock "body rolling". My jetta on Konis with hotchkis sways would do circles around my Benz. I guess we can just agree to disagree.

Yes, that's not only OK, it's part of the interest for us all talking!

We do agree on eliminating body roll, and the Eibach front and rear bars in the C300 do an outstanding job!

I agree, My stanced G feels like its on rails (redid the whole suspension with aftermarket parts) could do circles around this benz and most of the others on here. This car suspension on the W204 is nice, but after driving a car that has 50/50 weight distribution on D2 coilovers, sways, and front and rear camber arms...the W204 is going to need lots of work to keep up

Air ride advantages are comfort and ability to adjust for height. Disadvantages are weight of the system and you sacrifice handling.

Static means "rolling hard" AKA coiliovers/lowering springs

Platinum VIP offers something similar called phantom cup kits. They're located in SoCal, but you would have to call them if they offer them for our w204.

Here's their flyer.
How many of you are into the stance scene?-flyer1.png



Here's the link to StanceWorks forums where I got the flyer from.
http://www.stanceworks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3434


*EDIT*
In the flyer it says not offered for european vehicles and "JDM ONLY" but it is explained in the forum that they meant the price. You need to contact them directly for information about your benz.
