My new to me C300

Hi guys here is a pic of my new to me 2009 C300. My wife was hit on the side and they totaled out our 07 C230 that only had 56k miles and was in like brand new condition. So far I love it It only has 82k Miles and I was able to pick it up for $7600. only bad part is the bottom of the front lip has scratches from bottoming out so much but I'm not too worried about it, the wheels have a few scrapes on them so I'm thinking about painting them black.. Only plans so far are LED's for eyebrow lights (waiting on mine in the mail from AZN), ordered phillips diamond vision headlights and fog lights. LED interior lights and Going to clay bar it once it get a day off.

Grats on the pick up. All orders have been shipped so should get yours soon. Let us know if ee can help you out with any other lighting needs. Signals, rear plate, and reverse are also popular upgrades that you haven't listed

Congrats! She looks nice. Consider replacing the front grille for a sportier one. Plenty of options on eBay.

Thanks that is one thing that's on the list also. I'm going to paint mine for the time being. Also looking into wheel spacers. This is our second car, more of a toy for me and something to get around in while I'm stationed in Hawaii so not looking to spend a lot of money to swap out the wheels but I hate how the stance is with the 17" wheels. I think it just looks a little weak.

Also weren’t the “sport” headlight housings a little darker? I’m wondering if mine were replaced at some point?

They were only slightly smoked on the inside for the 2011 model year.
