What is going on guys? This section has been seeing a bit more traction lately, FINALLY!

Wondering what kind of mods you all have been doing lately, performance and aesthetically.

Drop some pics below of the sweet rides!

I have a source for it all. I just picked up a set actually but probably won't run fronts as pads/rotors are too pricey!

I donít believe they make them anymore. I have seen them for sale on eBay though. Look for Vossen CV4ís.
Thanks!

Chrome delete on the window trim. Purchased from ShadowLineTrim.com. (No affiliation)
Install was much easier that I expected. I didn't get it perfect but unless you're super close it looks great.

20" Vossen CV-7, tint, resonator delete, tune, lowering links, chrome delete (in-progress)

Nice Vossens mikeg4572!
Did you have any trouble fitting the Mercedes center cap in yours? I tried putting some black ebay caps in and they wouldn't fit without buckling.

Happy to see this forum getting more active!

One simple and inexpensive mod would be clear sidemarker lenses with chrome amber bulbs from eBay to clean up the look.
