Well the bumper is sick, i might have to do something like that. Looks like the grill needs some paint (maybe im wrong, too many paint chips), but hey my car looks worse in the category. The front windows need tint... i know it's illegal, but it should be illegal to only tint the other windows as well. It's just an opinion. As for the wheels, i love the brabus matte, but the yellow stripe hasn't grown on me yet. As for the pics, they look great, i especially liked the 4th and 5th and 6th (your personal fav is mine as well) from the end. Rating from 1-10, i have to give a 9, but it's a 9 that can easily become a 10. I look forward to seeing the progress.

thats sexy!

Photos input:

Im a punk about gettin the right exposure and I felt some images could have used a bit of better recovery on the over exposed areas (3rd and 4th photos). Shooting a black (or any dark colored) vehicle is alot harder, so this location was a good choice because lots of ambient light. You could always help out by using the flash from a further distance - you can see a big diff between the two pictures directly from the side - if he used the flash on the second one, it could have helped out a lot to bring out the details of the side skirts. while the first side profile shot had excellent lighting to display everything.

Im a photo noobie, but there is a link out there about how to "photograph a car." I found it helpful

Yes, I really like the front bumper. It reminds me of the the CLK63 bumper from the side with those vents.

thanks for the compliments guys!!

Wawy - I felt a noticable difference, not sure if its worth it unless you've got other mods also. i got a great deal on mine so it was a fairly inexpensive (when compared to other mods) performance mod.

MercedesFTW - they were but i couldnt see to back up so i swapped them out with someone else.

RW C55, I replied just a minute ago.

BlackRoof C55, the vents are a part of the bumper, its a K8 edition Brabus bumper and they come with them where as the regular Brabus bumpers do not.

Yes. I also got the tune done recently and the throttle response is definitely noticeable. You can really feel the increased power above 3000 rpm

Great set of pictures Eric. Brabus front end looks awesome
