justinwrock's modified wagon

People have asked me what mods I have done, so I thought I would write down all the mods I have done to the car in one place...


Little background on the car... Parents bought it new back in 88 from RAB motors in the bay area. Made its way to me, and have kept it mostly stock... Its a 1988 300TE for those who care, and the powertrain is stock. Its my daily driver, and it does about 20k miles a year....

First, some pictures!


















All those pictures reflect my current ride height... They are pretty much unaltered. I roll like that everyday!


Now for my list of mods...


Suspension:

custom springs
functional SLS
bilstein HDs
MBarts adjustable camber, caster, and toe arms in the rear
500E swaybars
Sportline Sedan Steeringbox
Lorinser RS90s with Michelin Rubber 17x8.5 with 215s (stretch!)
500E brakes
-3* of camber in the front
-4* of camber in the back

Exterior Visual:

Bosch Euros
4500k HIDs
3000k HIDs
Bosch Clear Corners
Euro Plate
35% front tint
20% rear tint
Rear Wiper Delete
3rd brake light delete
Tinted Tails

Interior/Stereo:

Wood Wheel
White Gauges
Avic-D1
iPod Integration
DVD
XM
PPI Amps
JL Subs
Focal Components
95 Seats


Theres more mods than that, but some of them I am keeping on the downlow until its finished off.... Lets just say I am 70% done with exterior modifications, and only 50% done with the interior!





BTW - I get alot of comments, looks, and thumbs up from other cars on the road.... Its pretty fun!

Why would you delete the third brake light? I'd want to be MORE visible, not less.

95 e320...sold the rest
I had them tint over mine on purpose. Only because that cut-out on rear windows for 3rd brake lights in the tint look like crap in my opinion.

My SLS was not even all the way down lol.


It gets low enough to have the inner fender sit on the tire.
