Car looks great and rims look amazing, but I would remove the sticker.

Nice! But it must be nightmare to own a black car in your neighborhood! (Construction Zone!) Very nice wheels. How's the steering feel around turns with that offset, trouble with it self-centering or no? Personally I would remove the lower chrome strips along the doors.

What's the easiest way to get the chrome strip off and will it be discolored?

LOL garage and washes like every other day and wax, no rubbing at full turns, no rubbing when towing a seadoo as well, self center is little diff feeling now, but will get better on I have the alightment dailed in

Beautiful car, beautiful wheels, beautiful stance...one of the nicest I have seen - well done.

So I know all the jokes about the sticker..2 in the...1 in the......but what is this actually from? Is it a company logo or something?

Heat gun, dental floss and 30 minutes... There won't be any discoloring

1200W Blow dryer on hot works great. No need to buy a heat gun. 40lb or better fishing line... 20 min a side... use pure naphtha (home depot) to remove any and all glue residue (will not harm paint) ... than apply a nice coat of your best wax... viola... perfection!

Comedian Dane Cook. It's called "The Shocker".
I think its hilarious, but it doesn't belong on a Mercedes.

Looks Good, Classic Wheels. I removed the chrome strip. Especially on black it looks sportier without it.

Here's a quickie photoshop... gives it a broader look, slab look IMO



And how it actually looks (not my car... haven't done it yet... too new)



My new car

Hold off on the lip for about 4-6 weeks. Then measure the height off the ground the lip will give you. Then go measure the curbs and parking stops where you commonly park!
