My build thread.

An up to date list of things we have done to my Wife's W204. We bought this car back in January 2011 bone stock and I have posted any pictures of my progress on it.

The day we brought it home





Dropped 2" on H&R Super Sport springs



Installed smoked clear corners with 5k LED lights



Installed roof spoiler and 3 piece Brabus spoiler





Upgraded the tail lights with some aftermarket smoked LED tail lights







Installed C63 style black grille



Opened up and painted headlights











After install





Removed lower chrome trim and blacked out the rest of the window/trunk trim



Stained fog lights yellow using Krylon stained glass (Keepin it Euro) and installed real carbon fiber overlays on the side mirrors

looks excellent Crazy, really well done and clean looking upgrades - with everything else blacked out, are there any plans for the chrome tips? they look a little outta place now...

Great looking car! If I had the money I would probably get taillights like yours with the smoked stripe, but I'll just wait for the 2012 ones to become available. Love the blacked out housings, I really want to do that!

As far as the exhaust, I like it the way it is, quads imho are out of proportion to the stance of the car and are more fitting for the C63. I think the stock tips give it a very sleek and clean european tuner look which I love. Just my opinion though. Although at the same time, your spoiler would make quads more fitting.

The smoked taillight, the yellow fog lamps, and the Vossen's are all real nice!

With so much work put into it - Who drives the car more? You or the wife?

I am digging everything. Only thing missing is a Eurotech CF Dual Diffuser
